Subject: Lyr Req: English Version of Alouette
From: Compton
Date: 08 Aug 06 - 11:52 AM

Just a thought...I was at a twinning association visit to France and asked to sing something. I recalled a version of alouette at a (not very serios) song club some 42 years. The english words were something like "My Balding Pate"- My Aching Head ...and going down.."My Censored Portions"...possibly Rugby Song, Possibly Scout song. Anyone as old as I know of it...and how much can they remember?

I seem to remember Russell when he was with Callenig doing a ruder version at the Boat in Redbrook, (Monmouth/Gloucs on the river Wye)

Mick Tems might be able to help - try the e-mail on http://www.folkwales.org.uk/folk.html if you don't get a few versions here.

Russell's was probably a forces version, the intro and chorus were as the French, then the verses were (as much as I can recall):

Je te plumerez le 3 day pass

Je te plumerez le 'otel room

Je te plumerez la big fat blonde

Je te plumerez le 'otel detective

Je te plumerez le night in the cells

Je te plumerez le short arm inspection

Je te plumerez le shot of penicillin

That's all I can recall, there may be more.
All done with appropriate lewd actions and repeating backwards through the verses.
You have to be really careful where you sing it, mind.

I once heard one that must have come from the 1940s or so, & was concerned with movie stars:

"Alan Ladd never had Betty Grabel on the table" etc.

There's the Goon's version (from 'Call of the West')

Grytpype-Thynne: Wig! How dare you, sir? The unfortunate woman just happens to have gone bald suddenly. It's obviously a case of the new lightning French alopecia from the song of the same name.

Moriarty: Thats right, thats right, [singing to tune of "Alouette"]: Alopecia, lightning alopecia, alopecia... happens everyday...

Grytpype-Thynne [sings, as do the next few] First you get it on your nut.

Moriarty: First you get it on your nut!
FX: [wooden bonk sound]
Moriarty: On my nut!

Grytpype-Thynne: On his nut!

Moriarty: On my nut!

Omnes: Ooooh! Alopecia, lightning alopecia. Alopecia happens everydayyyy!

Was know as "The Diggle Hotel" when I heard it, after the establishment allegedly involved.

I always assumed it was a Tinkers or 5 penny piece song.

Gentlemen, having found a suitably innocent "volunteer", stand her on a chair and serenade her with the following:

Alouette, lovely Alouette
Alouette, you're the girl for me
How I love your plates of meat
(How I love your plates of meat)
Plates of meat
(Plates of meat)
Aaahhh...

and continuing with ordered anatomical references in rhyming slang, up to "Barnet Fair" (sorry, can't remember most of them). Point to each item as it is mentioned.

I always managed to sneak a few extras into the final chorus that hadn't actually featured in the verses - there are so many synonyms for threepenny bits...

AL 'N' YETTA
(Words, Allan Sherman; tune: "Alouette")
As recorded by Allan Sherman on "My Son the Celebrity" (1963)

Al 'n' Yetta always sit togedda,
Watching TV ev'ry single night,
Munching popcorn from a dish,
While observing Dorothy Gish.

(Dorothy Gish) Dorothy Gish,
(What a dish) What a dish!
Ohhhh—

Al 'n' Yetta couldn't have it betta.
Their TV set has remote control.
So they both can stay in bed,
With Frankenstein and Mister Ed.

(Mister Ed) Stay in bed.
(Dorothy Gish) What a dish!
Ohhhh—

Al 'n' Yetta, fans of Art Linkletta,
And they love to sing along with Mitch.
They just found in TV Guide,
Reruns of December Bride.

(December Bride) TV Guide,
(Mister Ed) Stay in bed,
(Dorothy Gish) What a dish!
Ohhhh—

They're big fans of Gunsmoke and Bonanza,
And Ben Casey and Doctor Jim Kildaire,
And third reruns of Millionaire,
And fourth reruns of Yogi Bear.

(Millionaire) Yogi Bear,
(December Bride) TV Guide,
(Mister Ed) Stay in bed,
(Dorothy Gish) What a dish!
Ohhhh—

Al 'n' Yetta love to watch Loretta
When she enters through her fancy door.
They just love The Real McCoys,
Walter Cronkite and The Bowery Boys.

(Bowery Boys) Real McCoys,
(Millionaire) Yogi Bear,
(December Bride) TV Guide,
(Mister Ed) Stay in bed,
(Dorothy Gish) What a dish!
Ohhhh—

Al got wrinkly, watching Huntley-Brinkley,
And College Bowl on Sunday afternoons.
While they both watch Meet The Press,
Yetta yearns for Elliott Ness.

(Elliott Ness) Meet The Press,
(Bowery Boys) Real McCoys,
(Millionaire) Yogi Bear,
(December Bride) TV Guide,
(Mister Ed) Stay in bed,
(Dorothy Gish) What a dish!
Ohhhh—

Al 'n' Yetta watched an operetta.
Leonard Bernstein told them what they saw.
They both shouted, "Hail Bernstein!"
Then they switched to What's My Line.

(Hail Bernstein) What's My Line,
(Elliott Ness) Meet The Press,
(Bowery Boys) Real McCoys,
(Millionaire) Yogi Bear,
(December Bride) TV Guide,
(Mister Ed) Stay in bed,
(Dorothy Gish) What a dish!
Ohhhh—

Al told Yetta something that upsetta.
He said, "Dear, our picture tube has blown."
Yetta answered, "Woe is me,
For tonight we shall not see:

(Hail Bernstein) What's My Line,
(Elliott Ness) Meet The Press,
(Bowery Boys) Real McCoys,
(Millionaire) Yogi Bear,
(December Bride) TV Guide,
(Mister Ed) Stay in bed,
(Dorothy Gish) What a dish!"
Ohhhh—

Al 'n' Yetta's television set.
