After the ball was over, She took out her glass eye. Stood her cork leg in the corner, Hung up her hair to dry. Put her false teeth in the basin, Turned out the light in the hall; The rest of her went off to slumber After the ball.

(This is the version my father, George Gordon, used to sing in the 50's)

After the Ball was over
There on the sofa she lie,
She put her false teeth in salt water
She took out her lovely glass eye
Her cork leg she kicked in the corner
She hung up her wig on the wall
Ther rest of her went to sleep then,
After the ball.

Okay, so maybe that's not the version you wanted...

"After the Ball" was written about a true experience , sort of -- and the location was the ballroom above the Turners' Hall in Milwaukee. The ballroom was restored sometime within the past 10 years and I got the story from an article in the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal.

It's also said he overheard a lovers' quarrel at a dance in Chicago and thought up the line "many a heart is breaking after the ball", liked it and used it when he wrote the song. He was living in Milwaukee and probably attended dances at the Turners' Hall, too.

A second verse from 1960s New Zealand students, that follows approxiamately the same as above:

Her head when she wakes in the morning,
Will not have an ache nor a pain.
It also fell off her torso -
This semi-detachable Jane.
"I no longer am what I was, dear,
what I have left is my all.
Treat it with all due respect, dear -
After the ball."

Hung up her hair on the wall,

A different song, but right out of the same "playbook" of mischieviously altered material - a parody of "Silver Threads Among the Gold," another hoary oldie from the turn of the last century.

"At the boarding house where we live,
Everything is growing old.
Silver threads are in the butter,
All the bread has turned to mold.

When the dog died, we hat hot dogs,
When the cat died, catnip tea.
When the landlord died, I left there;
Spareribs were too much for me..."

for those too proud to look things up in Digitrad, there's:


Once a pretty maiden climbed an old man's knee
Asked for a story-"Papa tell me,
Why are you lonely, why are you sad,
Why do your shopmates call you a scab?"
I had friends, pet, long, long ye-ars ago,
How I lost them you soon shall know;
I'll tell it all, pet, tell all my shame;
I was a scab, pet, I was to blame."

cho: After the strike is over,
After the men have won,
After the shops have opened,
After the notice is down;
Many the heart is aching,
Though the hope seems bright
That many a scab will vanish
After the strike.

Brave men were fighting, standing side by side,
Fighting for justice, fighting with pride,
I then was with them---with them heart and soul,
But when the test came, I left them in the cold,
I thought it best, pet, best to turn a scab;
Best to return, pet, to the job I had,
That's why I'm lonely, that's why I'm sad,
That's why my shopmates call me a scab.

cho:

Many years have passed, pet, since I won that name,
And in song and story they have told my shame,
I have tried to tell them, tried to explain,
But they will not listen, pleading is in vain;
Everywhere I wander, everywhere I roam,
The story of my shame is sure to find my home,
I'd give my life, pet, I'd give my all,
If I had not turned traitor, or scabbed at all.

D.J. O'Malley (under the name D.J. White) wrote the cowboy song "After the Roundup" (aka "When the Works All Done This Fall", 1893) to the tune of "After the Ball". Lyrics have already been posed in other threads. Nowadays, people usually sing it to other, less arty tunes.

The "revolting" line above, "Coughed up her bottle of rye" sounds suspiciously close to the bit my mother sang me about "Corked up her bottle of dye." Oral transmission/folk process, I guess.

After the ball was over
Maggie took out her glass eye,
Put her false teeth in some water,
Corked up her bottle of dye,
Stood her false leg in a corner,
Hung up her wig on the wall;
Then what was left went to slumber
After the ball.

(Could've been "all the rest" instead of "what was left." I'm not sure.)

I like Barbara's mother's version best in this thread.

The only thing I would add to this discussion is a variation substituting the word "switch" in the line "hung her wig up on the wall". My grandmother sang this parody to me. She was from rural central Illinois, born in 1883.

My old headmaster at primary school was a part time jazz musician who used to get us all together on a Friday afternoon to sing songs from the music hall days etc. The version he taught us( in 1977 ish) was this:
After the ball was over, she took out her glass eye.
Put her false teeth in water, shook from her hair the dye.
Kicked her cork leg in the corner, stripped off her false nails and all.
Then what was left went to bye-byes after the ball.

This is the real version, and I know this because my Nanna born in 1893 sang it to me 100s of times throughout my childhood. Nanna came from a large very poor family and only affordable entertainment was the local Eastbourne Music Hall, admission a penny I think she said. I'm certain this is closer to the original because it has more alliteration.

After the ball is over
See Nellie take out her glass eye
Put her false teeth in water
Cork up her bottle of dye

Hang up her wig on the wall

Uncorked her bottle of rye,
Got her false teeth from the water,
Chased down the dog for her shoe.
If only she can keep her wits about her
And find that damned pot of glue.

After the ball was over,
Katie took out her glass eye,
Put her peg leg in the corner,
Hung up her wig to dry,
Put her false teeth in some water,
Hung her wax ear on the wall.
No, there wasn't much left of poor Katie
after the ball.

Reminds me of the very unfortunate, very unfortunate, very unfortunate man.
