Subject: Lyr Req: mulligatawny soup
From: GUEST,JonF

My grandmother used to sing a song which began:
"Mulligatawny soup is nice"
but I can't remember anything else


My mother, who I think was messing around used to sing:

Mulligatawny soup is nice
Especially when it's mixed with amonia
Paddington baths, I learned to swim
On my back and sucking a peppermint.

Does anyone know the actual lyrics?

Jon

I think this one needs to move back up to the top. I want to hear this song.
Refresh.

I vaguely remember a British comedian (Richard Murdoch?) used to do nonsense patter-songs like this to well known tunes. I can hear the tune for this in my head, but can't identify it.

I googled for "Paddington baths", and "sucking a peppermint" but with no luck, I'm afraid

My Dad always sings the verse about Paddington Baths, here's another one..

A Christmas pud is not the place to plant a begonia.

He says it was indeed from a radio show with Richard Murdoch and Kenneth Horne

Anyone know any more verses?

More Murdochery has:

  Mulligatawny soup is nice
  Especially when it's made with ammonia
  Isn't it strange
  A Christmas Pud
  Is never the place
  To plant a begonia?


apparently to a tune called Nola by Felix Arndt.

One verse started "Barrington Dalby said to me" and the next line may have been something like "The other day while sucking a peppermint"

I remember it as follows, with bits missing, something like:

Tupenny pies at fourpence each
and twenty four for one-and-eleven-pence.
Seventy five at eight and six and
Ninety two for seven and sevenpence.

??????

Then I bought three ha'penny worth of horsemeat
A pot of raspberry jelly
Then stuffed it down inside of my kitbag.
and then... ///

???????

And that is thr end of my song and I think it's about time too.
