I thought it looked familiar... Most if not all comes from a 1999 thread in rec.music.folk.

It takes twenty four folksingers to change a light bulb.One to actually change it,three to sing in harmony about what a wonderful light it was , and the other twenty to stand around saying how much better a light bulb it would have been if it hadnt been electric.

I've been a bulb-changer for many a year,
With GE's and Sylvania's I've ranged far and near.
But with compact florescents bein' sold at each store,
Soon there'll be no bulb-changers, no never, no more!
    And it's no, nay, never
    No, nay, never, no more
    Will there be lightbulb-changers
    No, never, no more!

How many folksingers does it take to change a lightbulb?

One to change it.
The rest sing about how much better it was in the old days.

LOL actually literally - and not the way people have taken to using literally to mean emphatically, either! Especially the extra gypsies who are needed to run away with the lady-O!

Here's a bulb, my dearest Nancy
60 watts would be my guess
If you climb up this step ladder
I'll not look up your dress
And the main thing on my mind dear girl
Is the safety of you still
If you stick your finger in the end
You just might get a greater thrill

I've mailed my two entries in to the site:

I went down to Sammy's Bar,
Oh the lightbulb needs changing.
But I had to reach too far,
And I broke the wires-o.

And

Hand me the lightbulb, hand me the lightbulb,
I don't want to reach down all the way-a-a-ay.
Hand me the lightbulb, hand me the lightbulb,
Don't take the whole ****ing day.

As I was going over to change a bulb this morning
I met with my mate Barry and he gave me this stern warning
First you take your lightbulb, then you take your socket
Push the bulb right in to it and give a twist to lock it

But be sure, oh be sure that you don't
Fall of the ladder-o, fall off the ladder-o
When changing that lightbulb

"Cosher Bailey had a lightbulb,
It was always wanting changing,
Forty Watts was it's power,
It would last about an hour."

"Have you ever saw, (X3)
Such a funny thing before."

"Cosher Bailey sister Tant,
She has an old Miners Lamp,
For to light its wicker,
You must fiddle with the pricker"

" Have you ever saw etc.

I am a lightbulb, a jolly jolly lightbulb
To be screwed into a socket is my delight
Oh it's left-y loose-y and right-y tight-y
Do it proper and I'll stay lit all night.

Lightbulb, lightbulb, Nancy lightbulb
Light up that lightbulb Nancy-o.

...funny how if you type lightbulb enough times it begins to look like a totally unintelligible bunch of letters.
