I'm looking for the lyrics to 'Some bugger from Yorkshire' which Bernard Wriggley did at Saltburn this weekend (and presumably other occasions too). Google failed me.

I heard him do it at Fylde Festival last year, excellent song and I believe he said it was on his forthcoming album that he was in the process of recording, so I would imagine it should be out now!

No help at all, I know, but he also did it here at our 'do' at the Boar's Head on August 4th. It's brilliant.

Here's Bernard Wrigley's web site. (Note the spelling of his name.)

The web site advertises his "new" album "God's Own Country," which came out in 2005, but I don't see any song title there that resembles the one requested.

The closest I can find there is SILLY OLD BUGGER, which appears on his album "Wanted: Live!" (1991).

Edain,
I just thought I'd mention the Jake Thackerey (spelling?) song that Bernard did in THAT set you mentioned. It showed what a sparkling guitarist that Bernard is , in spite of some people might get the impression that he is just a 3 Chord funny man. No sir , a bloody good guitarist an'all.
Cheers

(Thackray - well, you did ask!)

Seconded - Bernard's an accomplished guitarist - for those interested he has a whole album of instrumental guitar tracks that came out in 1988 and was remastered with extra tracks on CD more recently (see his website for details, link given above).

Well done Scrump , perhaps you could tell me if Wriggley ( as per thread ) , has 2 "g's" - it doesn't look correct to me .
Maybe I'm thinking chewing gum spelling.
Cheers

No, it's one 'g' - Wrigley - as pointed out by Jim Dixon above.

Going back to the original point - I don't know the song in question. Maybe it has a different title, or 'appen Loofyman hasn't recorded it yet.

Also saw Bernard sing "some bugger from Yorkshire" at Saltburn - brilliant! If anyone can get the lyrics (and tune for that matter - can't remember all of it!) would appreciate an e-mail to philkaydavies@btinternet.com. Cheers.

I also wanted the lyrics and have had no luck finding them so i found a recording and have transposed them as near as I can excuse the spelling
Some bugger fro' yorkshire
by the Boulton bull frog Bernard Wrigley

Now the misses and me
like to roam far and wide
leaving routine and humdrum behind
we like to jet off to
some place we've not tried
where we aim to relax and unwind
in a four star hotel
over looking the bay
we stand gauping in
disbelief and dismay
cos we come down
for breakfast the very first day
and we meat wi'
some bugger fro' Yorkshire

now we try to avoid
all the popular spots
like the Costas Gibraltar and Greece
we go for exotic cos we love it lots
we like to find peace perfect peace
we once found a mountain in Spain
where they always have sunshine
and never have rain
but just as we stepped
off the ten o'clock train
we met wi some bugger
fro' Yorkshire

now we stayed in a monastery
high in Nepal
where the monks never laugh
and don't speak
we once sent a few days
in Buttlins an'all where
a morning feels more like a week
we've stayed in resorts
that are wacky and weird
where nobody's heard of
or so it appeared
until from the bar we hear
"Na'then its just as we feared
There's always some bugger fo' Yorksire

Hes alwys called Roland or Rodney or Rick
From Rippon or Robinhoods bay
Hes boring and dull
and he gets on your wick
cos he talks about cricket all day
you dodge him at breakfast
you give him the slip
you fancy a morning
well clear from his grip
then it turns out your booked on the same sodding trip
sitting next to some bugger fro' Yorkshire

now we signed up last summer
for camping in Create
with a couple from Wallsend on tine
we noticed the mustache
and rather large feet
but the partner assured us he's fine
then later that might
from the neighboring tent
we heard an old tale of a cricketing bent
hoe he took seven wickets
to win against Kent
hells bells its some bugger from Yorkshire

so if you've a fancy
to ramble or roam
fro' the African plains
to the Vatican dome
take my advice
try a fortnight at home and you wont meet some bugger fro' Yorkshire

It's on his CD, Every Song Tells a Story. Does anyone know who co-authored the song with Wrigley?

Subject: Lyr Req: SOME BUGGER FROM YORKSHIRE (B Wrigley)
From: GUEST,Ray
Date: 16 Jan 16 - 09:47 AM

According to the sleeve notes, it was co-written with Steve Morris. Thanks for the transcript Colin, I've cleaned things up and corrected the odd mistake - its important to get the fifth verse right!


Now the misses and me like to roam far and wide,
Leaving routine and humdrum behind.
We like to jet off to some place we've not tried
Where we aim to relax and unwind.
In a four-star hotel overlooking the bay,
We stand gawping in sheer disbelief and dismay,
'Cos we come down for breakfast the very first day
And we meet with some bugger from Yorkshire.

Now we try to avoid all the popular spots,
The Costas, Gibraltar and Greece.
We go for exotic 'cos we love it lots.
We like to find peace, perfect peace.
We once found a place on a mountain in Spain,
Where they always have sunshine and never have rain,
But just as we stepped off the ten o'clock train,
We met with some bugger from Yorkshire.

Now we stayed in a monastery high in Nepal,
Where the monks never laugh and don't speak.
We once spent a few days in Butlins an' all,
Where a morning feels more like a week.
We've stayed in resorts that are wacky and weird,
Where nobody's heard of, or so it appeared,
'Til, from the bar we hear ,"Ne'then"; it's just as we feared,
There's always some bugger from Yorkshire.

He's always called Rodney or Roland or Rick
From Rippon or Robin Hood's Bay.
He's boring and dull and he gets on your wick,
'Cos he talks about cricket all day.
You dodge him at breakfast; you give him the slip.
You fancy a morning well clear of his grip,
Then it turns out you're booked on the same sodding trip,
Sitting next to some bugger from Yorkshire.

Now we signed up last summer for camping in Crete,
With a couple from Wallsend on Tyne.
We noticed the moustache and rather large feet,
But her partner assured us she's fine.
Then late in the night from the neighbouring tent,
We heard an old tale with a cricketing bent,
How he took seven wickets to win against Kent.
Hell's bells! It's some bugger from Yorkshire.

So if you've a fancy to ramble or roam,
From the African plains to the Vatican dome,
Tek' my advice: try a fortnight at home,
And you won't meet some bugger fro' Yorkshire.

Hi Gazza2

I gave this a quick run through for the first verse and it seems to work OK:

(G) Now the (C)misses and me like to (F)roam far and wide,
leaving (G)routine and humdrum be(C)hind.
(G)We (C)like to jet off to some (F)place we've not tried
where we (G)aim to relax and un(C)wind.
In a (E)four star hotel over (Am)looking the bay,
we stand (D)gawping in sheer disbe(G)lief and dismay,
'cos we (C)come down for breakfast the (F)very first day
and we (G)meet with some bugger from York(C)shire.
