assuming it's this one...

Timble's Pimple

My name is David Trimble I'm nifty, neat and nimble
On my backside I've a pimple that festers in July
I can scratch it, I can squeeze it with ointment I can grease it
But the only way to ease it is to go marching with the boys

It's just a little orange pimple, so soft and cute and simple
Harmless as a dimple, until the marching season comes
It swells with inflammation causing irritation
How can I sit in negotiations with a pimple on my bum.

I met my loyal Bretheren, a most unhappy gathering
In the sunshine they were sweltering in the churchyard of Drumcree
To march to Ballyoran with drums and banners blowing
They had been stopped from going by the loyal R.U.C

And my little Orange pimple grew as hard as any thimble
It was ringing like a cymbal and throbbing like a drum
It swelled with inflammation causing irritation
How could I sit in negotiations with a pimple on me bum

Say I to Sir Hugh Ainsley, 'No matter what your plans may be
And whatever Rupublicans may say this march must be allowed'
Says he 'Don't mind their blether, sit back and enjoy the weather
And we'll all march down together when we get a better crowd'

And my little Orange pimple grew as hard as any thimble
It was ringing like a cymbal and throbbing like a drum
It swelled with inflammation causing irritation
How could I sit in negotiations with a pimple on me bum

The people of Garvaghey, you couldn't keep them happy
There were some of them shouting 'Tiocfaidh' though they never say a hen
With the R.U.C before us, their batons waving o'er us
We all sang in a chorus, 'happy days are here again'

And my little Orange pimple grew as hard as any thimble
It was ringing like a cymbal and throbbing like a drum
It swelled with inflammation causing irritation
How could I sit in negotiations with a pimple on me bum

Here's a health to Paddy Mayhew, Hugh Ainsley and his gay crew
They showed us what we may do whenever we feel inclined
With them to fight our battles, we'll let our drumbeats rattle
And give each a Drumcree medal with the spelling right this time

And my little Orange pimple grew as hard as any thimble
It was ringing like a cymbal and throbbing like a drum
It swelled with inflammation causing irritation
How could I sit in negotiations with a pimple on me bum
My name is David Trimble, I was nifty neat and nimble
My little Orange pimple has grown into a boil
Now I dare not squeeze or scratch it or in any way detach it
For I know I'm for the hatchet if I seem to be disloyal.

And my little Orange pimple, so soft and cute and simple
Harmless as a dimple, until the marching season comes
It swells with inflammation causing irritation
How can I sit in negotiations with a pimple on my bum

My Grandfather used to sing this to a slow march ish timing of "The golden Jubilee", I don't know if this is the original tune to the words, but I remember my grandfather singing it on a few occasions, and it definetly has to be done in a certain way, just rattling off the words to the tune doesn't work, it has to be done slow, emphsasising every sentance. Hope this is of help to you
(I'm another P.P. fan by the way)

Grandfather? That's how myths get started - and the North of Ireland has more than enough of them!

When the author, Sean Mone, sings the song, he invariably follows it woith "The Bright Orange Heroes of Comber". Do we have the words around here somewhere, for comleteness?

"Give 'er stick, lads, and keep 'er low goin' under the bridge..."

THE BRIGHT ORANGE HEROES OF COMBER


On the twelfth of July last
as Greyabbey town we passed
to Kircubbin where we did assemble
the rebels they did pray for a curse on us
that day and their hearts within them did tremble.

As we passed down Shuttle Row,
that's a rebel place you know
thinking we were useless lumber,
they swore they'd break our drum
if we up to them did come
but we're the bright Orange heroes of Comber.

O Connell he does boast
of this great big rebel host
He says they are ten thousand in number.
But half of them, you'll find
they are both lame and blind
but we're the bright Orange heroes of Comber.

So here's a loyal toast
may all base traitors roast!
Confound the foes of the Orange Order!
For we'll give blow for blow
while swift Boyne waters flow
for we're the bright Orange heroes of Comber.

Anon (a guy who's really made a name for himself.....)

Swiped from this incredibly worthwhile resource.

Enjoy

B.

Theres another verse or two or maybe its a parody

For we,ll march up and down on the road to Portadown
our drums we will rattle like the thunder
And as the day draws near we,ll fill them rebels full of fear
We,re the proud Orange heroes of Comber

and theres another verse that starts, Theres a man called Willie Strong like his name he is real strong, he lives on the outskirts of Comber,i cant remember the rest maybe someone can fill in the missing lines, Will.
