Subject: Yell-response songs
From: helen
Date: 05 Mar 99 - 02:00 PM

Have you heard the song "With Her Head Tucked Underneath her Arm"? It's one of those songs where the audience yells back part of the chorus:

Sung: with her head (HEAD!)tucked (TUCKED) underneath her arm she walks the bloody tower, with her head (HEAD) tucked (TUCKED) underneath her arm at the midnight hour.

Well, I'm looking for other songs like that where the audience yells back to perform at Renaissance faires. It would be nice if it had a Medieval or Renaissance theme to it, or at least a Scotsman theme..but I'm open to anything :)

Any info will be greatly appriciated.

It's in the DT database. Do a search for "Anne Boleyn" or "head tucked."

Caryl P. Weiss also recorded an album with this title.

A local (very good) pub band around here does 'Seven Drunken Nights' with a call and response section to each verse, along the lines of 'And so I called to my wife, and I says to her...(all the men) HEY WIFE!!! (all the women) WHAT DO YOU WANT, YOU DRUNKEN SOT!?!?'

Also a lot of groups sing Finnegan's Wake with call 'n' response...

While not precisely a song, this was done by British Isle Scouts in the early 70's. It was claimed that in heavy fog the calls would go between two ships that were passing.

Deffinately appropriate for a lively Ren.Faire responce. The leader is solo....the group responds. The greater the vigor of the leader ...the more the group gets into it.

Sean, maybe my bar nights are too far behind me, but I don't know that song and couldn't find it in the DB (honestly, I looked!). It sounds HYSTERICAL with the call and response. Tell more?

And of course there is Black Velvet Band, when the singer sings "You'd think she was Queen of the Land" and the crowd responds "And she was".

In the song Waxies Dargle, the chorus or refrain has the audience or other band members and the singer shouting at each other,
"What'll you have?"
"I'll have a pint."
"I'll have a pint with you, sir."
The refrain then ends with, "if one of you doesn't order soon, you'll be thrown right out of the boozer." I t can be arranged very comically.

Dani: Don't be to surprised about not finding it... the DB has it as 'Shickered as He Could Be'. It's a little different from most versions I've heard, but it's still the same song. Bit of a job finding it, though.

here's one for the old time set:

Around her neck she wore a yellow ribbon.

In the chorus everyone echos 'faraway!'

(NOT THE T O & D SONG!)

And for you britishers there is of course

"Lambeth Walk" OI!

and in Germany:

A German Mudcat--who is he?
That needs those lyrics & respectfully,
Gets us to post 'em, ad nauseum,
'Stead o' keepin' 'em in our museum.

CHORUS)
Wolfgang, Wolfgang, Hell, Hell, Hell
Wolfgang, Wolfgang, Hell, Hell, Hell,
From here in the U.S. we can never tell,
Whether his old face, it rings a bell.

Wolf fell into a sceptic tank,
Boy, that tank it really stank,
He couldn't swim inside that tank,
But he went through the movements before he sank.

Wolf threw his sister in a well,
Watched and watched her as she fell,
Mom said while drawing water,
"Gee, it's hard to raise a daughter."

alternate chorus)
Wolf, Wolf, I cry all day,
Wolf, Wolf, I cry all day,
The only tune he'd ever play was
Was "Gimme the words to that song you play!"

(PLEASE ADD VERSES)

Art,
ever since I read in the song "The Dalesman Litany" the line "from Hull and Halifax and Hell, good Lord, deliver me" I knew that my name is better "songable" in English than in German. Maybe, for a change, I should ask for a tune?

Subject: Hull, Halifax and Hell
From: Willie-O
Date: 10 Mar 99 - 08:46 PM

Hull Quebec is right across the Ottawa River from Ottawa where I'm from...the bars were open two hours later on that side so it had a rowdy image...that line has always resonated for me.

Art you oughtta be ashamed of yourself but I guess that's not likely. Fewer verse, not more. A sceptic tank? Is that where they lock up religious fanatics in a rational country? (Or sceptics in a religious one? I'd be there. Don't want to contemplate where you'd be.)

But to get to the original point of this thread, "Alabama John Cherokee" is about the best call and scream song I know. Not very Rennaisance, but since you ast...it's in the DT as John Cherokee. Got a kind of calypso feel. Here are the first couple of verses not in DT:

1
This is the tale of John Cherokee
(Alabama John Cherokee!)
Indian man from Miramichi
(Alabama John Cherokee!)

2
Raised as a slave in old Alabam
(AJC!)
John ran away every time he can (AJC!)

OK it doesn't make good geographic sense, whaddaya want.
