Subject: Yorkshire Song Words
From: Carol
Date: 07 Jun 04 - 09:48 AM

I am trying to get the words to a song about a man from Yorkshire visiting The Queen and Family at Buck Palace - a lady called Joan sings it and it goes something like
On Moday she does all washing , on Tuesday she's ironing all the day, Wednesday she's mopping, Thursday she's shopping and Friday she goes for her pay.

Can anyone help please?

If you are in Yorkshire it's the other way round, she comes to see us, when she's been invited.

YORKSHIRE !!! Wash your mouth out young woman, the song was written by Ted Edwards, fabled wooly back/pie eater from Hindley near Wigan in the County Paletine of LANCASHIRE.

Last week I went down to London
to ogle at this an@ at that
an' I found mesel down near t'palace
so I thought I'd drop in fer a chat
I knocked on front door an' it opened
and Annie stood there in me way
I sez is tha mam in, Oo sez ey 'er is
but u's too busy to see the today,

Cos Monday Oo does all 'er washin'Tuesday 'er irons all day
Wednesdays 'ers moppin' an Thursday 'ers shopping
Friday er goes fer 'er pay
Satdays 'er cleans all 'er windas an' Maggie comes round fer the day
so come any Sunday but lerrus know first
an' we'll get summat in fer the tea

Ted also wrote Coal Hole Cavalry, Weepin' an' Wailin', The Coal and Albert Berry and many many other fine songs. He is alive and well just turne d65 and lives in Eccles, which despite what the Mandarins in Whitehall may say remains firmly part of God's county know to one and all as LANCASHIRE !

Joan may well be Joan Blackburn who runs Wigan Folk Club, they have a rather good website

"Joan" is Joan Gallimore who is a regular attendee at festivals and clubs including The Wooden Horse at Rainford, Maghull folk club and the Railway at Heatley.

The song was recorded by Joan on the first "Lancashire Voices" cassette organised by Derek Gifford and Chris Harvey of Cock Robin Music in Croston, Lancashire as part of an ongoing project to record people who wouldn't normally make a CD or tape. These recordings are archived - I think - in Central Lancashire library athough Derek or Chris can tell you better what they do with them.

Joan won the inaugural Fred Jordan memorial traditional singers' trophy last year at Saltburn (?).
She's always telling us tales of her days gone by and you can never get a word in. She's a diamond!

Cheers
Mark

Mark is right - I heard Joan Gallimore sing this at Upton last year, but she didn't do it in the Saltburn competition.

If she gets in a mining songs workshop, then you're really in for the full treatment!

Yep Fred Jordan Memorial Trophy at Saltburn, won by Joan last year, first
Will take place at Saltburn again, nice trophy of Fred and £100

I look after the competition, but don't normally judge it, along with Glen Osborne

I trust Ted is getting Royalties from the sale or broadcast of any of his amterial, if he is not credited with copyright by the perfomer this may not be happening.

PS Are you invloved with Radio Manchester or some such ?

Hi Raggytash

All material recorded by Cock Robin Music goes through the MCPS process of royalty payments and I know that Derek and Chris went to some lengths to find out that Ted wrote this song as Joan didn't know. Ted should therefore be getting anything that's due to him via the proper channels. If it's played on the radio then the tracks are logged and sent to the relevent authority for royalty payment.

I'm not involved with BBC GMR in Manchester although I have been on Ali O'Brien's programme "Sounds of Folk" a couple of times since it started over a year ago now and Bernard Cromarty who does help Ali in the studio sends me photos that I put on the folknorthwest website. There's a picture of Joan on there somewhere. I've also been on BBC Radio Merseyside's "Folkscene" with Stan Ambrose a few times in the past and also BBC Radio Lancashire's "Lancashire Drift" has played some tracks off my CDs. Chris Harvey and myself have recently - well January this year ; time flies! been on with the CD "A Mon Like Harry" which we did as a tribute to the songs of Harry Boardman.

Cheers
Mark

There's more words to it than that, with the Monday Oo does all 'er washin' appearing as a chorus- enough times for others to pick it up and join in.

Don't have the words myself though, sorry.

Hi Noreen, how's tricks long time no see, I have the rest of the words somewhere and had a brief look this morning for them, I'll have a proper look tonight.

Thanks for that Info Mark, pleased to hear that Ted is getting his due, I know Bernard vaguely and was with him at Ted's 65th back in April

Tried to get the word on last night but my PC at home has a virus is playing silly buggers and logs out before I have time to type the words in. The best bet would be to either photocopy the words and post them or type them as a word doc and copy and paste them to an email address, so if you PM me either I'll get them to you

Raggytash.

please! When you get your computer sorted out would you post the words here for us all.

It's got good lyrics, (any chance of some chords for it?), and it reads as though it could almost be done in monologue form, I'm sure
others beside myself would like it.

Hope you get your computer sorted out quickly.

Cheers.

Funny, all this discussion by people who seem to be familiar with the song, and no one has yet mentioned the title.

I can't find a description of the "Lancashire Voices" cassette that Mark mentions above.

However, I did find pictures of both Ted Edwards and Joan Gallimore on a website called Wireless Waves.

Any more info, anyone?

I think the title's called "H.R.H." but I'll have to dig out the cassette to check.

"The Lancashire Voices" project run by Derek and Chris only issues a limited number of tapes/CDs - 100 or so - mainly for the artist/s to sell to their friends . The people taking part tend not to be people who go round doing gigs so there is no real volume of sales expected. The second tape was of "Sid" Calderbank who sings "Traditional" Lancashire songs - similar to the material performed by Harry Boardman in his prime and the third CD featured a number of poets who wrote their own stuff in Lancashire dialect including Les Bond, Monologue Joe, Sheila Mellor-Barns and John Dowding (my dad). The next instalment in the series is going to be several singers performing Lancashire songs that Derek and Chris have dug out of library collections of broadsides that have never been recorded before.

The link to Wireless Waves above is the site that I run for the North West Federation of Folk Clubs. Bernard Cromarty (mudcatter Bernard) helps Ali O'Brien on the "Sounds of Folk" show on BBC GMR and takes pictures of the guests and I put them on the site. If anyone else wants to send pictures in of anything folky in the North West I'll put them on the site for you.

Cheers
Mark

The title is "Monday 'er does all'er weyshin" I've taken that from a copy that Ted gave to me, so I think that qualifies as straight from the horses mouth

Still having problems with my PC don't want to send you an email in case you get the virus, I've stuck a hard copy in the post to you.
As I explained the machine keeps cutting out and I lose anything I've typed, Would you be kind enough to get the words on the Mudcat for whoever else requires them

As requested the words for

MONDAY 'ER DOES ALL 'ER WEYSHIN' - words and music by Ted Edwards 1973

Ney last week I went deyn to London to ogle at this, an' at that.
I font mesel' deyn near t' palace, so I thowt I'd drop in fer a chat.
I knocked on t' front door an' it opened, and Annie stood there in me way.
So I sez, 'Is thi Mam in?' Er sez, 'Aye 'er is, but 'er's too busy t' see thee today. 'Cos -

CHORUS: Monday 'er does all 'er weyshin'. Tuesday 'er irons all day.
Wednesday 'ers moppin, an' Thursday 'er's shoppin', an' Friday 'er goes for 'er pay.
Setday 'er cleyns all 'er winders, then Maggie comes reynd for the day,
So come any Sunday, but let us know first, an' we'll get summat in fer thi tay.

Just then I see Phil come up t' courtyard, an' 'e sez leynin t' bike agen t' bin,
Tha favvers tha's come a long way lad, so I reckon tha'd better come in.
Wife'll be reet glad fer t' see thi, though 'er rollers are still in 'er 'air.
It's an 'ell of a job keepin' palaces straight, but Lizzie, 'er does pretty fair.

Annie put kettle on t' gas ring. That were no use 'cos gas had run eyt.
So I lent 'em a shillin' fer t' meter. if I didn't we'd ave to do beyt.
We brewed up an' supped it & chatted. Phil sez, 'If tha's not in a rush,
'Come wi' me an' I'll show thi reynd t' palace' and into me hand stuffed a brush.

They've portraits of Kings ad of Princes, an' Barons an' Bishops an' Knights,
An' one on the 'Victory' wi' Nelson - kissin' 'ardy wi' 'ole in 'is tights.
But the pride of the old British Empire, a truly magnificent sight,
Is an ermine-trimmed purple guzunder - for if they're caught short in the night. Oh -

We rounded a bend & were greeted, dressed in raiment of purples & reds,
By Elizabeth One-One Regina, gettin' t' fluff out from under all t'beds.
So if you ever go down to London to see 'ow te Royals go on',
If you don't let 'em know, they'll be busy. The odds are a hundred to one, that -

Thanks everyone for their help with this one - been resurrecting it for the Jubilee but I still sing Blowing Bubbles quite a lot. Sadly Joan died last year, last time I saw her was at Saddleworth I think, she was a lovely lady.
