Subject: Folklore: BEUK OF NEWCASSEL SANGS UPDATED NEW !
From: *#1 PEASANT*

Yes Indeed....
Another new directory.
This is the first of a series which should be done this week or so....
They all come from Allans Tyneside Songs

New Directory clickit right here

http://www.geocities.com/matalzi/priests14.html


Allan's Illustrated Edition of Tyneside Songs and Readings With Lives, Portraits, and Autographs of the Writers and Notes on the Songs, Revised Edition, Thomas & George Allan, 18 Blackett Street, and 34 Collingwood Street.

Sold By- W. Allan, 30 Grainger Street; R. Allan, North Shields, London: Walter Scott, 1891

I have posted them here first however, before final proofreading and edit. So the best versions will be on the page above.

I dont have this directory in the main directory yet but its page is here for those who haven't been.

Once I get the Allans edited I will be revising the searchable all in one text file version and then hopefully make a bit more progress with the persons and places index.....

       Now its time for a broon from the toon....

Great collection!

Tea-trolley scene from the office where I used to work with a bunch of transplanted Geordies:-
Geordie 1: "Will ye have a cake, or am Ah wrang?"
Geordie 2: "Yo're right, Ah'll have a meringue."

Maybe you have to say it out loud?


Going for coffee (and a cake).

I'm sure that was one of George Welsh's originally, as told in The Cumberland Arms, Byker, circa 1984 - only the lines are reversed. Bloke goes into Greggs 2 minutes before closing. 'What's left?' says he. 'Well - you can have the cheese pasty or a meringue,' comes the reply. 'Na - yer reet, pet - I'll have the cheese pasty.'

Of course back then, Greggs was a uniquely North East experience (Greggs of Gosforth indeed) but we've even got one here on Lytham high street; however, it's only the ones in Tyneside that sell the famous stotty cakes. Needless to say as an ex-pat Geordie our freezer's full of the bloody things, but fortunately my Lancastrian wife is as fond of them as I am.

Is it worth pointing out that The Beuk o' Newcassel Sangs was originally published by Joseph Crawhall in 1888? A copy sold at auction in America for $373 in 2006, which doesn't seem a fat lot at all really, especially when copies of the 1965 facsimile are fetching upwards of £80.

Okay - now back to those JJ Niles clips that have me so beguiled...

Sedayne - I originally heard the meringue joke from Kevin Sheils, in the Dove at Sidmouth - he said he'd first heard it in an English accent but about a patisserie in Edinburgh.

Oddly enough, and by a weird coincidence, I was discussing this at lunchtime today in the office with someone from Sunderland, who'd come out with the one about the man who asked for a porm in a hairdresser's, and got "I wondered lonely as a cloud" for an answer!

The Chinese wanted some ships built , so they sent a party of experts round the world to see which Shipyard would get the order .
The order was placed on Tyneside , and when they got back to Peking (Its an OLD joke) they were asked "Why Tyneside?" - because they talk our language ! We were walking through the yard when I heard someone say - Hey Hoy a hamma owa heah !!

Kitty - this is is getting interesting as a piece of folkloric mapping; do you have a date for the Sidmouth telling?

I've heard the hairdresser bit before, albeit some miles north of the Tyne, where it would be the phonetically identical purm - it's always I wandered lonely as a cloud, but there's real poetry in hoy a hamma owa heah too.

Then there was the guy who limped into the doctor's surgery in the hopes of getting a sick note.

Doctor: Can you walk?
Man:   Work? (pronounced wawk) Aa canna even walk! (pronounced waark)

Oh well, it's funny when you HEAR it ...

I am always glad to hear when it is helpful.

An infinite task which I will some day get to spend more time with.
Right now working on a huge 3-400 page book on Guy Fawkes Music
