'TAIN'T NO SIN
(Walter Donaldson/Edgar Leslie)

When you hear sweet syncopation
And the music softly moans
T'ain't no sin to take off your skin
And dance around in your bones

When it gets too hot for comfot
And you can't get an ice cream cone
T'ain't no sin to take off your skin
And dance around your bones

Just like those bamboo babies
Down in the South Sea tropic zone
T'ain't no sin to take off your skin
And dance around your bones

Subject: Lyr Add: 50 WAYS TO LOVE YOUR LIVER (parody)
From: Peace
Date: 05 Feb 07 - 07:02 PM

"50 Ways to Leave Your Lover" Based on the performance by Paul Simon
"50 Ways to Love Your Liver" Parody by Rex Ungericht
The problem is all inside your head, mom said to me
'Cause liver is tasty as a piece of meat can be
I know that if you try it once then you will see
There must be fifty ways to love your liver

She said you really need to eat more healthy food
Furthermore, I think your comment that it's crap is just plain rude
So you keep sitting there
"Til the time that you conclude
There must be fifty ways to love your liver

Fifty ways to love your liver

You just spread on the sauce, Ross
Put it on bread, Ned
And just shovel it in, Flynn
I'm sure you'll agree
Gulp it or chew, Stu
But just get it into you
You'll think that it's great, Nate
That's my guarantee

You just shake on the salt, Walt
Try it with rice, Brice
It's much better than Spam, Sam
So stop the debate
Don't say it's bad, Brad
You're just gonna make dad mad
You're here "til it's gone, Don
So clean off your plate

I said the look of it just makes me want to heave
I wish there was something I could say to get you to believe
That I don't appreciate this
You're trying to deceive
About the fifty ways

She said don't be like that, just try a single bite
And I believe as you're chewing you'll conclude that I am right
I was trapped there, so I tried it and then smiled with delight
There must be fifty ways to love your liver

Fifty ways to love your liver

This stuff is da bomb, mom
Better than pie, Di
I guess I'm eating crow, Flo
"Cause this is the best
This is a hit, Britt
So I'm gonna admit it
It's more than ok, May
I'm really impressed

OK, now she's gone, Dawn
This is the truth, Ruth
Gonna need me a pail, Gail
"Cause I'm gonna spew
I'm turning blue, Sue
"Cause this stuff tastes like doo doo
I'll throw it away, Faye
And tell her I'm through

Well you start in the mouth an' then head south,
Cruisin' down the elementary canal;
Down the throat...

Well, it's too hard to find another rhyme for "mouth" and "south" but it was a great start and consider where it finishes.

I see bones
I see gizzards and bones
And a few kidney stones
Among the lovely bones
And in case
you use pay telephones
There's two dollars in change
Among the lovely bones

(Allan Sherman, I See Bones, parody of C'est Si Bon; there are more verses, surely available on the web somewhere)

I've heard Roy Bailey do a song whose chorus goes something like

You need skin
Take good care of it
Don't harm a hair of it
Where would you be without it
Keep it clean
Soap and water every day
Will wash the dirt and grime away....

Undoubtedly the rest of that one's on the web, too, maybe even here at Mudcat.

I put my hand about her waist
(Mark well what I do say)
I put my hand about her waist
Sez she young man you're in great haste
I'll go no more a rovin with you fair maid

I put my hand upon her knee
(Mark well what I do say)
I put my hand upon her knee
Sez she young man your rather free...


I put my hand upon her thigh
(Mark well what I do say)
I put my hand upon her thigh
Sez she young man you're rather high...

I put my hand upon her breast
(Mark well what I do say)
I put my hand upon her breast
Sez she young man you've missed the best

I put my hand upon her patch
(Mark well what I do say)
I put my hand upon her patch
Sez she young man that's my main hatch...

In two weeks' time I was badly bent...

Or how about this...

As I went on my way in the merry month of May
To visit my grandfather's farm
I met pretty maid she was sitting by the way
and winding up her little ball of yarn

Oh the blackbirds and the thrush sang from underneath the bush
keep your hand upon your little ball of yarn (2x)...

Or perhaps...

Some like a girl who is slender in the waist
Some like a girl who is pretty in the face
But give me a girl who will wriggle and will twist
At the bottom of the belly lies the cuckoo's nest...

So: Will any of these do? All are anatomical.

What's that you say? None of those? Okay how about

Three old whores from Winnipeg were drinking blood red wine,
and the first one says to the second one there,
none is bigger than mine!...

Still no go?

Head, shoulders knees and toes (knees and toes) (2x)
And eyes and ears and mouth and nose...

G'day Gloucesterman,

I don't think this fits with Gerry's Roy Bailey song with: "You need skin ..." in the chorus, but I remember hearing a snatch of a parody on You've Got to Have Heart, which starts with:

Well, you've got to have skin,
It keeps all the other stuff in ...

It may be out there ... a Google search on some of that phrase may find it.

Regards,

Bob

Hi Gloucesterman
Cape Ann kids they got no tails
heave away, haul away

you got the idea

One you could use is "You Can't Be A Pirate Without All Your Parts". They sing it at Camerons on Tuesday nites, drop by

Good luck with the 2nd graders, they can be a tough crew at times.

In Child ballad 'Lady Diamond' she had her lover's heart served up to her in a bowl by her disapproving father.
And the Irish song about an RIC policeman who stops a young woman he fancies when she is out cycling one night and demands to know where her lights are, to which she replies - "next to my liver, where you'll never be".
If you want to widen your reference there is a wonderful song about medical science's two greatest benefactors 'The Ballad of Burke and Hare'.

Subject: Lyr Add: BODILY HARM (Emerson & Mary Murphy)
From: Elaine Green
Date: 06 Feb 07 - 10:01 AM

Here is a really silly song by some relatives of mine that manages to combine the mention of body parts with clichés, which was its aim all along.

BODILY HARM - © Emerson & Mary Murphy

He remembers your bedroom eyes; you remember his Roman hands.
You were both in over their heads with your feet stuck in the sand.
But you kept him at arm's length, and now he must confess
He's glad to get out by the skin of his teeth as he gets you off his chest.

It was a hair-raising time; he thought you were his friend.
But you went with a gut reaction, and he took it on the chin.
You've got a chip on your shoulder, but your feet are on the ground.
You worked your fingers to the bone, but his mind, it was unsound.

And you were just following your nose with a mind like a steel trap.
He was sitting there on his hands, living in luxury's lap.
You were not so hip. You left him no way to save face.
He had a brainstorm. A mind's a terrible thing to waste.

Your poor heart has been broken, yet you rock back on your heels.
His eye was on the throttle, but your hands were on the wheel.
He was in fat city. It was a bill you could not foot.
It's all no skin off my back, no ifs, ands, or buts.

His head was in the clouds; now his back's against the wall.
You had a knee-jerk reaction, and, boy, he took a fall.
Now your nose is to the grindstone, and my mood is turning blue.
He gave me a knuckle sandwich; and I've had a bellyful of you.

So he can shut his motor mouth, and you can close your eagle eye.
Body parts is body parts coming through the rye.
I just can't keep abreast, so try this on for thighs:
I was one of your pupils, but now we don't see eye to eye.

I keep an ear to the ground and a finger to the wind.
I gave you both a leg up, but you fell back down again.
So don't give me no lip; don't even try to speak.
My head may be up in the clouds, but your ass is up the creek.

Yes, I think your acts are criminal, and you know crime never pays.
I put my money where my mouth is, to coin a phrase.
Now everyone's heard your story, and it's just like I've said.
Yes, we may all have our problems, but yours are mostly in your heads.

I can tell you, sometimes love is war, and I don't want to come to harm.
You might that I'm just a heel, but this is my farewell to arms.
Now you all see that parts is parts; yes, there is a master plan;
I've done my best to keep you on your toes, so won't you please give me a big hand?

Subject: Lyr Add: YOU GOTTA HAVE SKIN (Alan Sherman)
From: mrdux
Date: 06 Feb 07 - 02:23 PM

A couple Alan Sherman lyrics:

YOU GOTTA HAVE SKIN
(Alan Sherman – tune of YOU GOTTA HAVE HEART)

You gotta have skin.
All you really need is skin.
Skin's the thing that if you've got it outside,
It helps keep your insides in.

It covers your nose,
And it's wrapped around your toes,
And inside it you put lemon meringue,
And outside, you hang your clothes.

Skin is what you feel at home in,
And without it, furthermore,
Both your liver and abdomen
Would keep falling on the floor
(And you'd be dressed in your intestine).

A Siamese twin
Needs an extra set of skin,
And when the doctor knows that you're feelin' sick,
Where does he stick his needle in?
In the end of your skin.


I SEE BONES
(Alan Sherman – tune of "C'EST SI BON")

The doctor was looking at the x-ray
And I asked him, "What do you see?"
And he kept on looking at the x-ray
As he said in French to me:

"I see bones.
I see gizzards and bones,
And a few kidney stones
Among the lovely bones.

I see hips,
And fourteen paper clips,
Three asparagus tips,
Among the lovely bones.

I see things in your peritoneum
That belong in the British Museum.

I see your spine,
And your spine looks divine.
It's exactly like mine.
Now doesn't that seem strange.
And in case you use pay telephones
There's two dollars in change,
Among your lovely bones.

Oh, hello there, nurse.
Come over here and look at this x-ray.
It's really remarkable.
Look at this.
Isn't the lumbar vertebrae supposed to be connected to the clavicle?
Well I know, but with scotch tape?
Hey, look what's in there.
Look at that, it's a stamp.
It's a 1922 McKinley ultramarine blue with imperfect perforations.
I've gotta get that out and put in my collection.
Look in there, there's printing.
What does it say in there?
"US Certified Grade A."
Look at this, fascinating.
See those little round things.
Know what those are?
Those are M & M's.
Those people are right.
They don't melt!

Among the lovely bones.

To the tune of "A Policeman's Lot" by Gilbert and Sullivan

The proportions of a woman that appeal to men's depravity
Are constructed with considerable care.
And what at first appears to be a simple little cavity
Is, in fact, a most elaborate affair.

Now doctors who have studied this feminine phenomenon,
From many experiments on dames,
Have taken all the portions of the feminine abdominon
And given them the most delightful Latin names.

There's the Vulva, the Vagina, and the good old Perineum,
And the Hymen which is, sometimes, found in brides.
And there are many others you would like if you could see 'em,
Like the Clitoris, and many more besides.

Now isn't it a pity when we common mortals chatter
Of the mysteries to which I have referred,
That we use for such an interesting, complicated matter,
such a short and Anglo-Saxon little word!


Words attributed to Arthur, Lord Tennyson.

Colyn.

But watch out, when the female form is described one area is labled her "Panama".

Try 'The Clown's Anatomy' as sung by Bill Caddick, Peter Bond and im Laycock in the 1980s. All I can remember is the chorus:

A person's person's personal, I hope you will agree,
But who will solve the riddle of the clown's anatomy?
