Subject: Nice Songs Made Naughty

I don't know, there may be something along these lines in the forum, but I couldn't figure out how to search for it. "Bawdy songs" returns too many things, and I don't think "bawdieized" or "bawdyized" are words.

Anyway, I was wondering about songs that, innocent to start out with, you have "bawdyized" into a whole new song. For instance, we used to sing

Mrs. Brown I think you daughter's pregnant
Girls like her get pregnant all the time
Her belly's changed, she says that I'm at fault....
(I don't remember the rest, but it was along the same lines)

If the songs are there (and I'm sure they are), they should be collected into one thread.

I have a singing friend who manages to bawdify any song, often by the simple but creative addition of the letter "s" as in
(Country Roads) All my memories gather round hers...
I first set my eyes on Sweet Molly Malone's...
   or maybe Sweet Molly's Malone...
and a broad assortment of "I held hers" and "my arms around hers" and such.

"Redwing" is perhaps the ultimate classic example. Having learned the tune from my father's singing, I was approaching middle age before I learned it was anything but a dirty song.

My mother, to this day, is shocked by it, even played as a fiddle tune. Fortunately, she never listened to western swing much anyway.

On the British radio programme "I'm Sorry I Haven't a Clue" they "edit" songs buy inserting a bleeper over innocent words, thus making ithem bawdy.

It works well with show songs

eg

All I want is a BLEEP somewhere
Far away from the cold BLEEP BLEEP
With one enormous BLEEP
Oh wouldn't it be luvverly?

Try it to Rolf Harris's Two Little Boys....

Servicemen the world over have been rewriting popular songs for Other Ranks bar renditions since Lord knows when. I had a FILTHY song in my rep for thirty years before I heard The Jack Hylton band record from 1934 of Poor Little Angeline.(origanally a tender love ballad)

If Bowdlerising is cleaning up a song there ought to be a word for the reverse process.

The "sneaker line" of the sort you're looking for is (or was some time back) a more or less standard thing in barbershop singing. Most of the trick lines were "naughty" at most, rather than outright obscene and nasty.

It's been many years since I was regularly in the company of active barbershoppers, but I can recall a late fifties SPEBSQSA convention in the mid fifties at which one of the favored quartets did a "zipped up" version of School Days. The first run through was straight, and in great harmoney, followed by a second pass with a number of "zingers" slipped in.

Sorry but about the only thing I remember for sure was the line:

"She wrote in my book, I love you true, when we were a couple of kids."

became:

"She wrote in my book, ...poignant pause ... I know-a-dirty-joke,
when ...etc.

Rather tame, I'm afraid, but I suspect the practice survives if you can find someone active in that tradition.

Down by the Old Mill Stream is another often done, in the "patter style" with interjected counter-lines.

Down by the old mill stream, where I first met you ...

becomes, usually with the high tenor doing the italicized bits:

Down by the old not the new but the old mill stream,
Where I first not second but first met you ....

The interjected patter lines were frequently "warped" into suggestive form, but I'm sorry, I can't remember a version to pass on at the moment.

Certainly the most "risque" zing was when another (or maybe the same first mentioned) quartet replaced the traditional ending tag "Shave and a haircut, four-bits...etc. with:

Sung by the whorehouse ... quartet
Have ya got a hard on ... not yet
Are ya gonna get one ... you bet
slowly and in full harmony It's sloooowly riiiisiiiing.

(note: high tenor modulates on last syllable)

Subject: Lyr Add: THE LOG DRIVER'S WALTZ (Wade Hemsworth)
From: GUEST,ClaireBear
Date: 05 Feb 04 - 11:36 AM

I swiped a technique from one of the cowboy poets -- sorry, I heard him about 20 years ago and I've forgotten his name, but I bet someone else will remember; he was opening for Riders in the Sky at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco and he was wonderful!

Anyway, all he did was simple LEAVE OUT words (technically I think he hummed) to make the song seem naughty. He did a three-verse song about a woman, and by the time he got to the third verse it was nothing but humming.

This is not only hilarious, it's actually quite classy since you don't have to say anything raunchy.

Here is that effect applied to Wade Hemsworth's sweet and lovely Log Driver's Waltz, for instance. The original words are in the DT; here's my version (**** = silence, which I find more effective than humming):

THE LOG DRIVER'S WALTZ
(Wade Hemsworth)

If you should ask any girl from the parish around
What pleases her most from her **** to her toes,
She'll say - I'm not sure that it's business of yours,
But I do like to ***** with a log driver.

Cho: For he goes birling down a-down the white water;
That's where the log driver learns to **** ********.
It's birling down, a-down the white water;
A log driver's ***** pleases girls completely.

When the drive's nearly over, I like to go down
To *** all the lads while they work on the river.
I know that come evening they'll be in the town
And we all want to ***** with a log driver.

To please both my parents I've had to give way
And ***** with the doctors and merchants and lawyers.
Their manners are fine but their **** are of clay
For there's none with the ***** of a log driver.

I've had my chances with all sorts of men
But none is so fine as my lad on the river.
So when the drive's over, if he asks me again,
I think I will ***** my log driver.

Back in my college days when I worked for the Forest Service I was on a crew with some resourceful fellows. They changed many songs to suit their young and lustful natures. One in particular I remember, a popular song of the 1970s, I'll post a few original words I found at a performer's web site:


    All I Have to Do is Dream/A Summer Song
    Words and Music by B.Bryant/House of Bryant (BMI); Stuart,
    Metcalf Noble/Rogers Music Ltd. CBS Unart Catalog (BMI)

    When I want you in my arms
    When I want you and all your charms
    Whenever I want you
    All I have to do
    Is Dream... Dream Dream Dream

    When I feel blue
    In the night
    When I need you
    To hold me tight
    Whenever I want you
    All I have to do
    Is Dream... Dream Dream Dream

    etc.


What was the Forest Service variant? The only part I remember is
Cream Cream Cream. . .

When I was but a child. many years ago, some of the more daring fellers would sing "The Sheik of Araby" and add "with no pants on" at the end of every line. And snicker.

I don't know why they picked "The Sheik of Araby;" it was an old song even then, and the trick works with most anything. But it was clever then, and easy to remember.

Llewtrah's web site contains a large number of bawdy parodies as well as rugby songs. They are mostly a bit too crude for my taste though.

Don't have the URL to hand, and the automatic censor probably wouldn't let me find it here! But there are links to it in other threads.

I once heard someone sing 'The BOY from Ipanema'. Only changed a few words, but the whole song became totally different...

My mother was a charming lady with silver gray hair, who spoke like a propah Bahstonian. My friend Nils held her in great reverence.
I wish you could have seen the look on his face when he began singing, "Oh this is the day they give babies away with a half a pound of tea" and mother chimed in with "If you know any ladies who want any babies just send them along to me!"
He still talks about it!

In the early 60s, Cap'n Jim, hosted Popeye cartoons on board a cardboard boat called the Nancy B.
He encouraged kids to send in parodies of the Popeye song. One afternoon, he read one very peculiarly.
"I'm Popeye the sailor man"
"I live in the garbage can"
"Live in the....." a very strange noise but no word.
And I smell like......" the same noise.
"I'm Popeye the sailor man".
I was very young and didn't know there were such things as words you don't say on television. So, I just thought he was laughing at a funny parody.
Now I know, and I wish I knew what the song was. It was probably vulgar without being funny. But it would add to the story.

My Yorkshire father taught me, when I was five, to sing:

"Captain Cook took his hook and sailed across the river,
He bumped him bum on a bottle of rum which made his belly shiver"

My mother was scandalised - and it was he reaction which told me the song was 'naughty' not the words, though they seem very tame now of course.

Later, when I was 12, I was in a pantomime and one of the songs which I naively sang at home, once more without suspecting the words were suspect...

"It was in Baghdad when me mother met me Dad singing 'Nelly put yer belly next to mine' "   And my Dad nearly knocked me across the room!

Oh, if I could only hum the tune for this one for everybody. I don't remember the name of it, but it sounds like it could be a reel or even another song. I remember Robin Williamson singing it in concert, interspersing with playing it on the penny whistle:

My wife's got a furry thing,
A furry thing, a furry thing.
My wife's got a furry thing;
She showed it to me Sunday.

It came from the furrier's,
The furrier's, the furrier's.
It came from the furrier's;
It's going back on Monday!

More versions of 'These Foolish Things' (based on a memory like a Swiss cheese)

A lipstick stain upon an old french letter,
That little sore that simply won't get better,
How Pennicillin stings,
These foolish thing remind me of you

The flat we shared above a Gents' urinal,
The thrills you gave were simply xxxxxxx (possibly misremnered as endochrinal)
But how the smell of it clings
These foolish thing remind me of you

That night a 'Dockers' where we both got platered
And some time later when you stopped the bastard,
It's in a bottle at King's
These foolish thing remind me of you

There is also a verse which starts
"The worn out sofa that we had our shags on"

As a child in school (a thousand years ago) we used to sing:

Lady of Spain I adore you

and (I'm looking over a four leaf clover):

I'm getting over a big hangover that I got the night before,
First came the whisky and then came the gin
Then came the redhead who wouldn't give in
There's no explaining the blonde remaining
'Cause she's on the bedroom floor -
I'm getting over a big hangover that I got the night before!

'Twas on the isle of Capri that I found her
She was naked and tied to a tree
I could not resist the temptation
And now she's a mother of three!

Ah - the follies of childhood!

Micca/Walrus

As you were dressing on the morning after
I watched your titties and I roared with laughter
- Oh how the left one swings - the foolish things . . . .




I have heard naughty persons spoil "Pleasant and Delightful" with various modifications and additions:-

It was pleasant and delightful one midsummer's morn
When the fields and the meadows were all covered in corn
And the blackbirds and thrushes sang on every green spray
And the sharks they played melodeons at the bottom of the bay.

A sailor and his true love were a'walking one day
Said the sailor to his truelove I am bound far away
I am bound for the East Indies where the load cannons roar (Tiger imitations)
I must go and leave my Nancy, she's a di-ir-ty old whore

Then the ring from off her finger she instantly drew (- POP)
Saying, Take this my dearest William and the finger came too
And whilst he stood embracing her tears from her eyes fell
Saying, May I go along with you, o no, my love, like hell !

So it's fare thee well my Nancy, I can no longer stay
For the topsail is hoisted and the anchor is weighed (- Twenty Tons)
And the ship lies awaiting for the next flowing tide (- Puking noises)
And if ever I return again, keep your legs open wide !

Micca/Walrus

As you were dressing on the morning after
I watched your titties and I roared with laughter
- Oh how the left one swings - the foolish things . . . .




I have heard naughty persons spoil "Pleasant and Delightful" with various modifications and additions:-

It was pleasant and delightful one midsummer's morn
When the fields and the meadows were all covered in corn
And the blackbirds and thrushes sang on every green spray
And the sharks they played melodeons at the bottom of the bay.

A sailor and his true love were a'walking one day
Said the sailor to his truelove I am bound far away
I am bound for the East Indies where the load cannons roar (Tiger imitations)
I must go and leave my Nancy, she's a di-ir-ty old whore

Then the ring from off her finger she instantly drew (- POP)
Saying, Take this my dearest William and the finger came too
And whilst he stood embracing her tears from her eyes fell
Saying, May I go along with you, o no, my love, like hell !

So it's fare thee well my Nancy, I can no longer stay
For the topsail is hoisted and the anchor is weighed (- Twenty Tons)
And the ship lies awaiting for the next flowing tide (- Puking noises)
And if ever I return again, keep your legs open wide !

Not naughty by today's standards:

As he walks along the Bois de Boulogne with an independent air,
The people stand and stare,
For he's in his underwear.
His credit's all gone and his suit's in the pawn,
He once had a nickel but now he's got none -
He's the man who lost his shirt at Monte Carlo!

We've forgotten the greatest of them all.
All I need to say is "Oh Dear What can the matter be, three old ladies got locked in a lavatory!" (Well, some people sing seven, but I think that's overdoing it.)

Many years ago, I heard a version of Mary had a little lamb with the chorus, "Hurrah for Mary, hurrah for the lamb! hurrah for the Finnegan boys who did not give a damn and every where that Mary went the lamb was sure to go! Shouting the battle cry of freedom"

The last verse went, "And as the teacher took it out, lead it out, pushed it out, and as the teacher forced it out, it ppplllllffft upon the school.

LadyJean's version of "Mary Had a Little Lamb" - the chorus anyway - was sung in the American Civil War (with the "the soldiers" rather than "the Finnegan boys"). See Edward Arthur Dolph, "Sound Off!" (1929).

As long as Pleasant and Delightful has been mentioned, I regularly break up my neighbors with:

And the sharks they sank malodorous, to the bottom of the bay.

And I'm leaving my Nancy, she's a tuppeny whore.

And if ever I return again, it'll freeze in hell.

"Mary Had a Little Lamb" has been extensively abused by little boys:

Mary had a little lamb.
She tied it to the heater,
And every time it turned around,
It burned its little peter.

Mary had a little lamb.
She tied it to the sink,
And every time it turned around,
It froze its little dink.

Mary had a little lamb.
The doctors was surprised.

Sung to "Isle of Capri"

'Twas on a pile of debris where I found her
She was drunk just as drunk as can be
I can still smell the crud all around her
When we kissed on that pile of debris

In my schooldays, Liverpool kids had a tradition of 'one liners' - taking the innocent lines of songs and 'dirtifying' them
The rather beautiful, 'September Song' was represented as:
"The bits of brown came tumbling down in September" (a one-phrase alteration works wonders!)
Then the're's 'Rule Britannia', which emerged at the time of the Chinese Revolution
"Rule Britannia, marmalade and jam,
Five Chinese crackers up your arsehole
Bang, bang, bang, bang, bang".

That worked a bit harder at Funiculee, Funicular

Last night I stayed up late to masturbate,
It did me good, I knew it would,
Last night I stayed up late to masturbate,
It was so nice, I did it twice.

First I tried the long stoke
It was so grand with my right hand
Then I tried the short stroke
Was just as grand with my left hand

Swing it fling it, bang it on the floor,
Suck it, bite it, jamb it in the door
There are some people who may think that fornication is so grand
But for absolute perfection I prefer to use my hand.
My mother, who had a somewhat bawdy sense of humour', used to sing the parlour ballad, 'I Dreamed that I Dwelt in Marble Halls' with the line
"I dreampt I was tickling my old feller's feet,
With a glass of sweet oil and a feather,
The more that I tickled, the louder he laughed
'Till the cheeks of his arse flapped together"
Quite a lot more, if I can remember them

Not naughty, but:

Sung to 'As Usual, by Brenda Lee

Well I awoke with aching head
As Usual
I don't remember going to bed
As Usual
And somewhere inside my left ear
I get a feeling, very queer
It must have been that crappy beer
As Usual.

We sucked it up just like a Hoover
As Usual
The cheap wine and the Paint Remover
As Usual
And somewhere deep inside my brain
I think I hear, A Diesel Train
I must have gotten pissed again
As Usual.

Snorted with laughter at ClaireBear's method, and have been trying it with patriotic ballads:

For Greece and Rome who bravely xxxx, three hundred men and three men…

Debout, les xxxx de la terre
Debout, les forçats de la xxxx
La raison tonne en son cratère
C'est l'éruption de la xxxx

When the King enjoys his xxxx again
Yes, this I can tell
That all will be well

You don't need to change the words at all- listen to Frankie Howerd singing 'My Way'-

or if you are familiar with his style, just imagining it should do the trick!
