Subject: RE: MUS ADD: You Gotta Have Skin
From: mike cahill
Date: 20 Nov 98 - 03:20 PM

I can faintly remember this song I think, It starts :- You've got to have skin, miles and miles and miles of skin. It then goes onto gorey detail about it holding things like your guts in. That is all I can remember of that one at the moment, but I remember another along the same lines that goes :-

You need skin, take good care of it, don't harm a hair of it, 'cos you need skin.

Keep it clean, soapy water every day wash the dirt and smells away, 'cos you need skin.

Subject: Lyr/Chords Add: YOU GOTTA HAVE SKIN (Allan Sherman
From: Jerry & Bev
Date: 22 Nov 98 - 11:56 PM

Here are the lyrics we learned through the folk process about two years ago.
 YOU GOTTA HAVE SKIN

D7 Am7-G-Am7 D7 G-Am7-G
You gotta have skin, all you really need is skin,

E7 Am7
Skin's the thing that if you've got it outside,

G Am7 D7 G
It helps keep your in sides in.

D7 Am7-G-Am7 D7 G-Am7-G
It covers your nose and it's wrapped around your toes,

E7 Am7 G D#7 G
And inside it you put lemon meringue, and outside you hang your clothes.

G Dm7-G7-Dm7 G7 C-Am7-C
Skin's the thing you feel at home in, and without it, furthermore,

A7 A7-Em7-A7 D7
Both your liver and abdomen would keep falling on the floor,

D7 Am7 D7
(You'd be dressed in your intestine)

D7 Am7-G-Am7 D7 G-Am7-G
Siamese twins need an extra set of skin,

E7 Am7
And when the doctor says that you're feeling sick,

Am7 G7-Am7-G7
Where does he stick the needle in?

E7 Am7 D7 G-Am7-G
In the end of your skin.

G Dm7-G7-Dm7 G7 C-Am7-C
All your kith and all your kinfolk, whether poor or whether rich

A7 A7-Em7-A7 A7 D7
Oh, they all have lots of skin, folk: it's convenient when you itch,

D7 Am7 D7
(nothing can match it when you scratch it)

D7 Am7-G-Am7 D7 G-Am7-G
It fits perfectly, you ought to see where mine fits me

E7 Am7
When you sit down, well it folds and looks grand,

G7-Am7-G7
Then when you stand shows where you've been,

E7 Am7 D7 G-Am7-G-D7-G
Ain't you glad you got skin?!

The words from Jerry and Bev are much more complete than the existing lyrics in the DT. Well done.

This is almost Allan Sherman's masterpiece, and I am grateful to see it here. Thanks, John. ("almost" means that there are so many to choose from -- "Green Stamps" perhaps -- "Some extract of vanilla, enough to feed Godzilla; a hundred pounds of bird seed, and I don't own a bird!" -- but the Drapes of Roth, at the end of the day, surely.

As I remember it, the line that's given above as "you ought to see where mine fits me" should be "yours fits you and mine fits me."

That's what he sang on TV anyway. Maybe the record was different.

All the Allan Sherman lyrics anyone could want are available at http://dmdb.org/sherman/

Skin was on the album, Allan In Wonderland. dmbd agrees with Jim Dixon about that line, and it also has a closing stanza which has not appeared in this thread.
