I'd like to collect lyrics to kids' songs that were never part of any class songbook- like the ones that started "Mine eyes have seen the glory of the burning of the school-" or "jingle bells, batman smells, robin laid an egg-"etc.(I read the greasy grimy gopher guts thread.) I think Matt Groening did one of his life in hell cartoons about some of these songs.Anyone remember any gems from their own past?

Back in the Fifties kids were singing - to the tune "Yellow Rose of Texas"

Oh the Yellow Rose of Texas and the Man from Laramie
went down to Davy Crockett's to have a cup of tea
The tea was so delicious they had another cup
and poor old Davy Crockett had to do the washing up.

TTFN, Bert.

The Scottish/Texan folksinger, Ed Miller, has been collecting a whole bunch of these playground favorites, and does a bunch of them in concert. (Is the original request from you, Ed? you didn't sign it...) He notes that he's heard variations of "Mine eyes have seen the glory of the burning of the school" both here and in Scotland. There's a classic line about a teacher; in Scotland (Glasgow, I think?) it goes:

"I hit her in the bean with a rotten tangerine,
And she ain't gonna teach no more!"

Here in the Land of the Free and the Home of the NRA it usually goes:

"I shot her from the door with a loaded 44,
And she ain't gonna teach no more!"

My memories of favorite playground ditties is sadly faded; the only one that has stuck (other than "Greasy, Grimy Gopher Guts) is a parody of a TV ad jingle, to the tune of Colonel Bogey's March:

"Comet, it tastes like gasoline;
Comet, it makes your hair (or teeth) turn green;
Comet, it makes you vomit,
So have some Comet, and vomit today!"

I like today's violent parodies of the sicky-sweet Barney song; there's lots of variations on this one.:

"I hate you, you hate me,
Let's go out and kill Barney,
And a shot rang out and Barney hit the floor,
No more purple dinosaur!"

These are fun; hope to see a lot more!

Didja ever think when the hearse goes by,
That you might be the next to die?
They wrap you up in a big white sheet,
And drop you down about six feet deep,
Where all goes well for about a week,
Until your insides begin to leak.
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
It looks just like green saurkraut.
You spread it on a piece of bread
And that's what you eat when you are dead!

(One version of many.)

There are some I remember only the beginning of, which may jog others memories, like:

Jingle bells, shotgun shells...

Glory, glory, Hallelujah, teacher hit me with a ruler...

Jose, can you see, any bedbugs on me?...

Great green gobs of gooey grimy gopher guts,
Marinated monkey meat, little dirty birdie feet,
Swimmin' in contaminated milk. ...

Finally, some folk songs I know!

Here's a naughty song to the tune of "Goodnight Ladies"

Mary had a steamboat, the steamboat had a bell
The steamboat went to heaven and Mary went to
Hello operator give me number nine
If they do not answer please refund my dime
Ask me no questions, I'll tell you no lies
If you get hit with a bucket of shit be sure to shut your eyes

There are more verses.

A rather sizeable collection of these types of songs can be found in the book "Joe's Got A Head Like a Ping Pong Ball" by Marcia and Jon Pankake. It was originally published in 1988 under the title of "A Prairie Home Companion Folk Song Book". The idea for the book derived from a "Department of Folksong" segment that Garrison Keillor had for a couple years on his radio show. Listeners were encouraged to send in lyrics and tunes they remembered from childhood. Some of them were sung on the show by Garrison, Kate McKenzie, Greg Brown, Robin & Linda Williams and other guests. At one point they did an entire program of these songs. The book was reissued a couple years later with the new title. The tune for the title song is the Overture from William Tell (aka the Lone Ranger's theme). That is all of the words. The lines are filled in by adding various numbers of "ping" and "pong" to fit the notes.

PASSENGERS WILL PLEASE REFRAIN
(sung to the tune of Humoresque)

Passengers will please refrain
From flushing toilets while the train
Is standing in the station, I love you.

We encourage constipation
While the train is in the station,
Moonlight always makes me think of you.

If you need to pass some water
Kindly call the Pullman porter,
He'll place a vessel in the vestibule.

If these measures are in vain,
Simply break a windowpane
This novel method's used by very few

As we go romping through the park
Goosing statues in the dark,
If Sherman's horse can take it, why can't you??

Somebody brought this to our song circle this evening. Somebody said there are other verses, including one about "hobos riding underneath" and "when knighthood was in flower and maidens lost their heads…." Anybody know the rest of those verses?

OK after I posted, I thought I'd probably have to clarify (to make it butter?)

Joe's got a head like a ping-pong ball
Joe's got a head like a ping-pong ball
Joe's got a head like a ping-pong ball, ping-pong, ping-pong ball
Joe's got a head lie a ping-pong, ping-pong, ping-pong, ping-pong, ping-pong ball
Joe's got a head like a ping-pong, ping-pong, ping-pong, ping-pong, ping-pong ball...(back to the first line)

In the same vein (weather you like it or not), you can also convey the real story.

William Tell, William Tell, see they've got your son
William Tell, William Tell, he's the only one,
William Tell, William Tell, apple on his head,
If you miss, he'll be dead.
William Tell, William Tell, now you take your shot
William Tell, William Tell, Oh it's dead he's not
William Tell, William Tell, this is Gessler's doin'
And Rossini wrote the tune (last word pronounced to rhyme with "doin'")

Now to "Humoresque"

Following the Sherman's horse triplet:

Washington was very firm
And Lincoln didn't even squirm
Darling, that's why I'm in love with you.

Another verse is:

If you simply have to go
When other people are too slow
There is only one thing you can do.
You'll just have to take a chance
Be brave and do it in your pants
But I'll forgive you, darling I love you.

It has been reported that the original verse "Passengers etc." was co-written in the 1930's by former Supreme Court Justice William O Douglas and a fellow Yale law professor Thurman Arnold as they were riding on the New Haven Railroad. They were inspired by a sign in the toilet. Thurman reportedly addressed the passengers and taught them to sing the song in unison.

Here is a somewhat bawdier version that incorporates a few of the original lines:

I love to go out after dark
And goose the statues in the park
A lovely pastime at the close of day
Unperturbed they stand so still,
While WHOOPS! it's me that gets the thrill
It really is a lovely way to play.

I've noticed lately
They stand so stately
Out there in the dark when dew is on the ground
I sometimes tease them
And do displease them
If I fail to show up as the sun goes down.

The Thinker is the only one
With whom I can have no fun
He sits upon a boulder, rough and coarse
Napoleon sits upon his steed
I cannot goose him, no indeed
And so instead I goose his horse.

Passengers will please refrain
From flushing toilets while the train
Is standing in the station, I love you
Prostitutes and lovely ladies
Have to douche or they'll have babies
If Sherman's horse can take it why can't you?

Ever since you met our Nelly
She's had trouble with her belly
Wish you'd never seen our little town
Ever since I met your Venus
I've had trouble with my penis
Wish I'd never seen your little town.

Our variant of the third line above was "I eat all the worms and I spit out the germs"

LaMarca, here in the home of the brave (Cleveland, Ohio, to be precise) we used to sing, "I bopped her on the bean with a rotten tangerine,/ And boy did she turn green." I think I've heard the version about the .44 too.

And here's the version I remember of the steamboat/bell song Earl mentioned, with more "jokes":

Miss Lucy had a steamboat, the steamboat had a bell,
Miss Lucy went to heaven and the steamboat went to
Hello, operator, give me number nine,
And if you disconnect me I will kick you in the

My 2 cents and a different version of the Miss Lucy song.

Miss Lucy had a steamboat, the steamboat had a bell
Miss Lucy went to heaven the steamboat went to
Hello operator, give me number nine,
And if you disconnect me I'll kick you
Right behind the 'frigerator there was a piece of glass
Miss Lucy sat upon it, it went right up her
Ask me no more questions, I'll tell you no more lies.
The boys are in the bathroom zipping up their
Flies are in the garbage the bees are in the park
The boys and girls are kissing in the D A R K, D A R K,
Dark is like a movie, a movie's like a show,
A show is like a TV set and that is all I know know know.

I also seem to remember one about Miss Lucy having a baby and giving it a bath, but she used bubble bath, which the baby ate, so she called the doctor and the lady with the alligator purse. I'll have to ask my sister about that one. It was one I remember her bringing home from school.

We had a different version to Miss Lucy...

Mary had a little lamb, she thought it rather silly,
She threw it up into the air and caught it by it's...
Willie was a sheep dog sitting on the ground
Along came a bee and stung him on his....
Ask no questions tell no lies,
Ever see a p'liceman doing up his....
Flies are a nuisance, bugs are worse
And this is the end of my silly little verse.


On the penultimate day of school we used to sing a couple of wee ditty's:

One more day of school, one more day of sorrow,
One more day of this and that
We'll be home tomorrow.

We used to make up the rest of the verses, usually about some teacher we all loved to hate.

Then there was the old wartime favourite:

Hitler, only had one ball
The other was in the Albert Hall

It went on for a bit (memory fading here) but it ended something like ...and Goeble's had no balls at all...

Not only did we not have a clue what these "balls" were, (I certainly didn't), we didn't even know who Hitler was when we first learnt it.

Anyone know the rest of these?

Also did the Miss Lucy thing, but the glass was behind the
Iron Curtain instead of the fridge.

These were the playground songs. The defiance we felt, and the giggling. Looking back, it was neat the way the teachers just rolled their eyes and ignored us, giving us the space to be inducted into that circle of childhood comraderie, much like the secret handshake, and knowing that we didn't mean it (really!).

Well I guess my kids aren't all that naughty because the best I can come up with is the version of Rudolph the red nosed reindeer with the echos (in parentheses)

Rudolph the red nosed reindeer (reindeer)
had a very shiny nose (like a lightbulb)
and if you ever saw it (saw it)
you would even say it glows (like a lightbulb)
All of the other reindeer(reindeer)
used to laugh and call him names (like Pinochio)
they never let poor Rudolph (Rudolph)
join in any reindeer games (like football)

Then one foggy Christmas eve,
Santa came to say (ho ho ho)
Rudolph with your nose so bright,
won't you guide my sleigh tonight?

Then all the reindeer loved him (loved him)
and they shouted out with glee (yippee)
Rudolph the red-nose reindeer (reindeer)
you'll go down in history (like Columbus)

If memory serves, this was featured on an episode of "The Simpsons."

Yeah, I remember these songs!!! Great to see this thread!!
As I remember, the "other" Miss Lucy song went:

Miss Lucy had a baby
she named him Tiny Tim
She put him in the bathtub
to see if he could swim
He drank up all the water
he ate up all the soap
he tried to eat the bathtub
but it wouldn't go down his throat
Miss Lucy called the doctor
Miss Lucy called the nurse
Miss Lucy called the lady with the alligator purse
In walked the doctor, in walked the nurse
(etc.etc.)alligator purse
The baby bit the doctor, the baby bit the nurse, the baby bit the lady with the alligator purse
Out walked the doctor, out walked the nurse, out walked the lady with the alligator purse

In Cleveland where I was a kid in the early 70's girls did this song as a clap-hands chant.

Ok, just a few more! I have a soft spot for these kid parodies. Some must be pretty old --

(Another Popeye verse):
I'm Popeye the sailor man,
I live in the frying pan,
I turn on the gas and burn off my ass,
I'm Popeye the sailor man.

________
God bless my underwear
my only pair
stand beside it, and guide it
through the holes and the rips and the tears.
From the washer, to the dryer, to the clothesline, wild and free,
God bless my underwear, my only pair.

Others are pop-culture commentaries:

McDonald's is your kind of place
They serve you rattlesnakes
Put french fries up your nose
and hamburgers between your toes
Last time that I was there
We had to eat my underwear
McDonald's is your family place to go!

And then there are parodies of real folksongs, like the Good Ship Titanic. Most of the verses are the same as the "real" song, but there are embellishments:

Fishies and turtles, little ladies lost their girdles, it was sad when the great ship went down.
Oh it was sad (it was sad), it was sad (TOO bad!), it was sad when the great ship went down--
Uncles and aunts, little boys lost their pants, it was sad when the great ship went down.

Or this version of "Barges", which we sang all too often at Girl Scout camp:

Out of my tent flaps, looking in the night,
I can see the councelors having a fight.
Suddenly flows the water from the john,
as the councelors' fight goes on and on.
Councellors, I would like to fight with you,
I would like to beat you black and blue.
Councellors, have you treasure in your hold,
Do you fight with raccoons brave and bold?

How about this verse for the Old Gray Mare? ver 2.0

This song was resurrected in a Tom Arnold movie, I forget the name.

There goes teacher floating down the Delaware
Chewing on her underwear
Cant afford another pair
Ten days later bitten by a polar bear
Thats how the polar bear died.

And some more words to McDonalds:
Sung to Down by the Riverside, of course

McDonalds is your kind of place
They feed you rattlesnakes
They slap them in your face
There is no parking place
French fries between your toes
Put a straw up my nose
The last time that I was there
They fried my underwear
Mc Donalds is your kind of place.

When I taught my kids that one, they wanted to know if I made it up. How could a song like that become so widely known? Its almost like McD planned it.

I guess like dg said, it is pure folk music.

And, just in time, one more comes to mind.

On top of old smokey, all covered with sand
I shot my poor teacher with a green rubber band
I shot it with pleasure I shot it with pride
I couldn't have missed her she's 50 feet wide.

On the subject of songs where you just barely don't say bad words, there's one in the DT called "Sweet Violets". In junior high I learned a different version:

There once was a farmer who took a young miss
In back of the barn where he gave her a
Lecture on horses and chickens and eggs,
And said that she had the most beautiful
Manners, which suited a girl of her charms,
A girl who he wanted to take in his
Washing and ironing and then if she did,
They might get married and raise up some

Sweet violets, sweeter than all the roses.

"On Top of Spaghetti" is in the DT, credited to Tom Glaser.

The version of "Bingo" in the DT says you _mouth_ the missing letters. Heresy! You _clap_ for the missing letters! In my childhood the older kids (camp couselors) daringly sang, "There was a drummer had a drum, and Ringo was his name oh."

For a truly boring parody, there was always "Found a Peanut" (to the tune of Clementine):

Found a peanut, found a peanut,
Found a peanut just now.
Just now I found a peanut,
Found a peanut just now.

Cracked it open...

It was rotten...

Ate it anyway...

So I died...

Went to heaven...

Saw St. Peter...

The tune is only a dim memory, but we used to sing a song called "Atlantic City" which went:

I met a young girl in Atlantic last year
Who every bright morning would walk to the pier.
She'd dive in the water, it was smooth just like glass
And give all the people a view of her ----

Antics in the water clear up to her chin
And she'd never be drownded as others have been.

The girl had a brother who'd dive off the dock
And amuse all the people by shaking his ----

Fist at the crowd standing up on the shore
The same shore he'd stood on a moment before.

There were a couple more verses but I can't remember the setups for the "dirty" parts.

Cheer cheer for old _____ High,
You bring the grass and we'll all get high
Send the Freshmen out for hash,
and don't let a Sophomore bring in trash.
Nah nah nah
We never stagger, we never fall,
We all come down with phenobarbital

The last line is "For the glory of being high"

bring on the whiskey, bring on the rye.
Send the freshmen out for gin
and don't let the sober sophomores in.
Juniors never stagger, seniors never fall,
they sober up on wood alcohol,
as the dear old faculty goes staggering down the hall.

The trick was that all members of a particular class would yell out when they were mentioned. Faculty never sang along as I remember. So it was about drugs 10 years later...?

We must have been naughty boys too, for we used to sing The North Atlantic Squadron and Barnacle Bill the Sailor. I think they were old navy songs kids had overheard their vet dads singing when in their cups. Certainly the lyrics contain references to activities that good children should not know about.

Does anyone have the full lyrics to My Dog Jack? I can only remember the first verse. I don't know the name of the tune but it sounds to me like a southern fiddle tune.

Had a little dog, his name was Jack
He shit all over the railway track
Train came by, the shit flew high
And hit the conductor right in the eye

For the person who mentioned the song or rhyme about the knight and ladies, I believe it went:

In days of old when knights were bold
And safes were not invented;
They'd put their socks upon their cocks
Thus babies were prevented.

Here is a verse of In Days of Old that I will admit to inventing at the age of 14 or so:

In days of old
When knights were bold
And heaters not invented,
The local whore was paid much more,
And not at all resented.

I grew up in Minnesota, so perhaps I was influenced by the weather.

Here is a much better little ditty on a medievil theme that I learned from my father. I think it was quite popular when he was in school (the thirties and forties). If so, it seems to show that the sophistication of our doggeral has declined perceptibly along with our educational standards. Not that all verses are that sophisticated, but a few of them are rather cleaver. There are supposedly many, many verses to this thing, but my dad, alas, only knew a few of them:

The King's Castration

'Twas the night of the King's castration
The royal ball was coming off.
And all the dukes and counts and no-accounts
Were there in their carriages and miscarriages.

"Where is Daniel?" cried the King.
"Daniel is in the lion's den."
"Bring Daniel fourth."
But Daniel slipped on a lion turd and came fifth.

"Oh shit!" cried the King
And a thousand loyal subjects dropped their drawers and strained.

"Where is the Queen?" cried the King.
"The queen is in bed with laryngitis."
"Last week it was Arthur Itus. They must be brothers!"
. . .
"Balls!" cried the Queen.
"If I had t[w]o I'd be King."

Subject: ADD: The King's Catration - The Royal Ball
From: JMike

Wkailey

In Boston circa '69 there was a highly distributed paper called "The Bloody Sheets" from somewhere (Harvard?, MIT?) with a collection of what passed for humor among us in those dark times. It contained a version of "The kings castration" which I remember as:

'Twas the night of the king's castration, the royal ball was coming off. Counts, discounts, and no-accounts stood around cameldunging each other, for in those days bullshit had not yet been invented.

Everyone was having a good time except Daniel. This angered the king who ordered Daniel to come forth. However Daniel slipped on a lion turd and only came in fifth. Daniel was so angry that he picked up the turd and threw it at random. Unfortunately, Random ducked and it hit the king.

"Oh SHIT!" cried the king, (for it was) and 20,000 loyal subjects squatted and grunted, for in those days the king's word was law and the king ruled with an iron hand.

"Where is the princess?" asked the king.

"In bed with laryngitis," said the queen.

"I'll kill that frigging Greek!" said the king, "Oh well, screw the princess."

And 20,000 loyal subjects were trampled in the rush, for in those days the king's word was law, and the king ruled with an iron hand.

"Oh balls," said the king, not because he wanted to, but because he had two.

"Balls yourself," said the queen, "If I had two, I could be king."

Hi back to you, Alice C.! I was at Lomond elementary school in Shaker Heights 1966-73. I seem to recall that Fairfax wasn't that far away.

The version of "The Night of the King's Castration" I learned at Princeton in about 1980 seems to have been influenced by the counterculture, because it began, 'Twas the night of the king's castration, the night of the king's last ball. And all the counts and councillors were gathered around the council table flinging pieces of camel turd, for bullshit was unknown in those days and camel turd was the word."

Also, "...but Daniel slipped in a pile of lion shit and came in fifth, losing ten points for the common people."

(I wonder if this had any influence on the late Roger Zelazny, another Clevelander, who named an important character in his Amber series "Random". It's the kind of thing he'd do.)

"Skunk Hole" is in the DT, with the WRONG TUNE. (It should be "Dixie", not "Turkey in the Straw".) That song and "Baby Bumblebee" remind me of this one, to the tune of "If You're Happy and You Know It" (later in life, it was "If you're horny and you know it, pull your pud):

Oh, I wish I was a little English sparrow, (2x)
I would sit upon the steeple and I'd spit upon the people,
Oh, I wish I was a little English sparrow.

There was another verse about wishing I was a little MOSquiTO, but I don't remember the rest.

At the same camp, my brother learned one that began, "I'm a camper, a dirty little camper./ I leave a trail of bug juice wherever I may go." (Bug juice = Kool-Aid et al.) This was apparently a parody of one from our mother's day: "I'm a villain, a dirty little villain."

Tim Jaques, "Barnacle Bill" came later (so to speak), when I was about 13. Around the same time I learned, "In days of old, when knights were bold,/ And _rubbers_ weren't invented..." What are you, some kinda Canadian or some'm?
