Subject: Lyr Add: 'Go Kiss Your Pa!' trad. bawdy song??
From: John M.
Date: 20 May 05 - 07:36 PM

Hello everyone,

If you are easily offended, please STOP READING.   This thread is for mature audiences only.  Please don't post "dreadful song" or "worst song written" as you are not helping. 

Below is a traditional bawdy song titled:  "Go Kiss Your Pa!"    (recording)
 


              1.  Do you sing "Go Kiss Your Pa!"? 
              2.  If yes, when and where did you learn it?
              3.  Would you be willing to sing it for folklore purposes over the phone?


Any help is appreciated.

Sincerely,

John Mehlberg

GO KISS YOUR PA!    (recording)

She lay down upon bed
So fresh, so fair, so chubby
And I lay down beside her
And in each hand a bubby

I looked into her glistening eyes,
Beneath her chin did chuck her
Her legs with mine did intertwine
And I began to [whistle] her.

"Pull out", she cried. "Don't spin inside
Or I'll get into trouble."
I pulled it out and on her breast
A stream did spurt and bubble

I looked again into her eyes
And into laughter burst
I said, "I guess that's the youngest child
That ever you have nursed."

She scooped it up with one fair hand
And with a sweet ha ha
She threw it in my face and cried
"Go child and kiss your pa!"

You asked me to sing you a bit of a song, well...


Notes: This is transcribed from a field recording of Ebb Wren of Forbes, Australia as recorded by John Meredith and Rob Willis on 19 May 1989. 

The reason I titled this thread "'Go Kiss Your Pa!'  trad. bawdy song??"  is because I only have one example of this poem being SUNG.  Does anyone else sing this?  If yes, to what tune?

naaww, harpy...that is at least clever and well-sung. No really gross words, just 'imagery'...and THIS time, the woman has the last laugh! Not for yer average singaround, though.

(I 'seem' to have a vague memory of seeing something like it somewhere...but have NEVER actually heard it sung...)

Harpygirl, I am beginning to suspect that you are very difficult to please.  Pun intended.

I will now give a further example of this traditional 'song'.  The text below is from the songbook Immortalia.  No tune is indicated but none of the songs in that songbook have tunes indicated.

THE YOUNGEST
Anonymous

She lay stark naked
Between the sheets,
So nice and fat and chubby;
And I myself beside her lay,
My hand upon her bubby.

I kissed her lips in crazy glee,
And 'neath her chin did chuck her:
Our thighs did intermingle,
And I began to fuck her.

"Pull out," she cried, "pull out! pull out,
Or I'll get me into trouble."
I did, and on her snow-white breast
That stream did squirt and bubble.

I looked into her frightened face
And, with a smile of mirth,
I said, "I guess that is the youngest child
That you have ever nursed."

She scooped it up with one fair hand,
And, with a glad ha ha,
She threw the load into my face
And said, "Child, go kiss your pa!"


Notes: This is found on pg 78 of Immortalia (1927), reprinted on pg 170 of The Wrecks (1934).  No tune is indicated.

Okay, I'm convinced of John's good intentions and dedication to his particular arcana. My neck hairs are down and amusement level is up. Harpgirl is my friend and I don't think we should make fun of the fact that she is offended. Let's respect her feelings, try to ease them over time, and move on.

robomatic and harpgirl,   Sorry about the pun.  I unusually don't poke fun...even in jest. 

Here is another example of this 'song' from a MS from 1905-07.   There are songs, stories, toasts and other doggerel poems in this collection (See here).  None of the songs in this collection have tunes indicated.

-: GO CHILD AND KISS YOUR PA :-

She lay start naked on the bed,
So round so fair and chubby,
And I beside her naked too,
With each hand held a bubby,
I kissed her lips with merry glee,
And 'neath her chin did chuck her,
And then our legs were intertwined,
And I began to FUCK her,
Pull out she cried dont spend inside,
Or I'll get into trouble,
I did and on her snowy breast the stream did squirt and
bubble I gazed into her frightened eyes,
And into laughter burst, and said my Dear that's the Youngest child I guess you ever nursed,
She scooped it up with one fair hand
And laughing a soft Ha? Ha?
She threw it in my face and cried
Go child
and kiss
your PA!


Notes: This is from a 1905-07 manuscript from New York state near Albany.  No tune is indicated.

G'day John,

Just one slight correction to Ebb's words (your transcription ... or Warren Fahey's ... ?) - the first line of the third stanza I definitely hear as:

"Pull out", she cried. "Don't spend inside ...

- in line with your 1905-07 NY State manuscript ... and a common 19th century term for ejaculation.

Regards,

Bob

It might help in this forum if people who are offended by such songs post remarks such as "I find this disgusting" rather than the implied general "This is disgusting." I often find such songs amusing but I recognize that other may not be amused. I respect their right not to be amused by such songs and I would certainly carefully pick the time and place where I'd launch such a song.

I'm not familiar with this song.

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Bob Bolton,  this tape was transcribed by Warren but I have noted some inaccuracies and have tried to correct them.   Thanks for your correction -- I tend to agree with your hearing.  As anyone who has done transcribing knows, it is good to have other people listen to the recording because repeated listen makes one "blind" to the words.

Here is another text which goes to show that this song/poem is TRADITIONAL.  There is not indicated tune.

A GIRL'S TOAST.  (photo of broadside)

She laid on the bed stark naked, so round and chilly
and I beside her naked leg, while each hand clasp her bubbie 
I kissed her lips with crazy glee, beneath her chin did chatter,
and then our legs did entwine, I then began to fuck her. 
Pull it out she cried don't spit inside for I will get in trouble.
I laid on her snowy breast the stream did quirt and bubble. 
I gazed into here frightened eyes and full of laughter burst
I said my dear that is the youngest child you ever nursed. 
She scooped it up with one fair hand and laughed a soft ha, ha,
and she threw it in my face and said child go and kiss your pa.


Notes: This is from an undated (ca 1895) bawdy broadside.  I have added the line breaks for easier reading.  The format of the original broadside has this poem as a straight paragraph.  No tune is indicated. Please see photo.

G'day John,

I know the problem of repeatedly looking/listening to the same thing ... "glazed with familiarity" is my personal take on the effect.

The broadside, to which you link, has several interesting (presumed) "typos"! Both rhyme and some of your alternate versions suggest the person setting type for the broadside misread "chubby" as "chilly" in line 1 ... then "chuck her" as "chatter". Then possibly, in line 5, the already archaic "spend" was read as "spit" ... and, to draw the bow near breaking point, perhaps "laid" in the sixth line was written out as "did,".

This all suggests that the small sheet (maybe a "pamphlet" - given the ultimate derivation from Pamphilus sue de Amore) was a quick favour by a typesetter - for a friend who wasn't the clearest of writers ... So who was it complained that setting down "folk songs" in print would "kill" them, by precluding any changes!

BTW: Have you had direct contact with Rob Willis, who worked with John Meredith on this collection ... and who knew Ebb Wren for years? I'll e-mail contact details directly to you, in case you don't have them.

Regards,

Bob

She lay stark naked on the bed,
So fair and round and chubby,
And I beside her naked lay,
While each hand held a bubby.
I kissed her lips a thousand times,
And 'neath the chin did chuck her,
And then our legs got interwined,
And I began to fuck her.
"Pull out," she cried, "don't spend inside,
Or I'll get into trouble."
I did, and on her snowy breast
The stream did squirt and buble

And into laughter burst, and said:

That you ahve ever nursed."
She scooped it up with one fair hand,
And laughed a soft "ha, ha,"
Then threw it in my face and cried:
"Go, child, and kiss your pa."

A 1965 Danish medical student songbook in part reprinted in the above PDF has the following:

The Youngest Child
(Mel. Cielito lindo.)

She lay nude between the sheets
And I beside her lay;
And she was soft and round and chubby,
Under my hand uprose her bubby.

My hand beneath her waist did stroke,
Her tip-tops itched and tingled,
I clambered up, began to poke,
And our juices intermingled.

“Pull out! Pull out!” the fair one cried,
“Before I swell with trouble.”I did.
And on her snow white breast
My come did froth and bubble.

I gazed into her frightened eyes
And with a leery curse,
“This is the youngest child,”
I said,“That you will ever nurse.”

She picked it up with one fair hand,
And with a shocked “Oh La!”
She threw the load into my face,
Saying, “Child, go kiss your Pa!”
