- THE BASTARD KING OF ENGLAND -attributed to Rudyard Kipling, but probably not! Oh the mistrels sing of an English King of many long years ago who ruled his Land with an iron hand tho his morals were weak and low his only outer garment was a dirty yellow shirt with which he served to hide his hide, but he couldn't hide the dirt He was dirty, and lousy, and full of fleas but a Royal Tool hung to his knees God bless the Bastard King of England! Now the Queen of Spain was an amorous Jane, a lascivious wench was she who heard about the prowess of this King from over the sea so she sent a Royal Message by a Royal Messenger to ask the King of England to spend the night with her He was dirty and lousy and full of fleas but he kept his women by twos and threes…. God Bless the Bastard King of England! When Philip of France heard of this chance, he swore before his Court "The Queen prefers my rival just because mine's…somewhat short." So he sent the Count of Zippety-Zap to give to the Queen a Dose of Clap to pass it on to the Bastard King of England! When the King of England heard the news, he cursed the Gallic farce and he up and swore by the Royal Whore he'd have the Frenchman's arse So he offered half his Kingdom, and a piece of Queen Hortense To any Royal Subject who'd undo the King of France So the brave young Duke of Buckingham went instantly to France He swore he was a fruitier; the King took down his pants. So in front of the throng he slipped on a thong and jumped on his horse and he galloped along dragging the Frenchman back to Merrie England! When the King of England saw the sight he fainted dead on the floor, for during the ride his rival's hide had stretched…a yard…or more! and all the girls of England came down to London Town and shouted round the battlements "To hell with the British Crown!" So Philip of France usurped the Throne his scepter was his Royal Bone with which he bitched the Bastard King of England! 2 *
THE SQUIRE'S SONG -Anonymous -note: not for the weak-kneed!
Don't laugh when you see a Duke walk by For you may be the next to die!
To fight with him is suicide Especially if you "rhino-hide!"
As on the field your helm caves in; His sword is buried down to your chin!
They'll take you out to the family plot And there you'll wither, decay, and rot!
They'll take you out, and lower you down, And men with shovels will gather 'round!
They wrap you up in a big white sheet And bury you under about six feet!
And all goes well for about a week And then the coffin begins to leak!
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out, The worms hold revels upon your snout!
They call their friends, and their buddies, too, They'll make a terrible mess of you!
Your body turns a slimey green And pus runs out like whipping cream!
Your hair turns white, your skin turns blue You don't look like you used to do!
Your eyes fall in, your teeth fall out, Your liver turns to sauerkraut!
And great big bugs with eyes of green Crawl in your liver and out your spleen!
You become a thing that's very rare A smell worse than your underwear!
So don't laugh when you see a Duke walk by For you may be the next to die!
- 3 ONE-BALL RILEY -Traditional Irish As I was sittin by the fire talking to O'Riley's daughter suddenly a thought came into my head: I'd like to shag O'Riley's daughter (Chorus): Giddy aye ay, giddy aye ay, giddy aye ay for the one-ball Riley Giddy aye ay: (three claps or stomps) try it on yer own big drum! Her hair was black and her eyes were blue The Colonel and the Major and the Captain sought her The Sergeant and the Private and the Drummer boy too All of 'em shagged O'Riley's daughter! Riley played on the big bass drum; Riley had a mind for murder and slaughter Riley had a bright red glitterin eye and he kept that eye on his lovely daughter While walking thru the park one day Who should I spy but Riley's daughter? Never a word I had to say But "Don't you think we really oughter?" Got me a bottle and a condom too, got me hands on Riley's daughter settled me down for a good old time doin' things we shouldn't oughter Up the stairs and into bed I shagged and shagged until I stove her Never a word that maiden said just laughed like hell till the fun was over! Suddenly a footstep on the stair who should it be but Riley out for slaughter with two pistols in his hands lookin for the man that shagged his daughter Grabbed Old Riley by the ball, rammed his head in a pail of water shoved them pistols up his ass a damn sight quicker than I shagged his daughter! As I go walkin' down the street People shout from every corner There's the randy sonofabitch That finally shagged Old Riley's daughter! Now all you lasses, all you maids Answer me now, and don't speak shyly Would you have it straight and true Or the way I gave it to One-Ball Riley? *
- THE COUNTESS' GARTER -Anonymous (Tune: "Cornell's Alma Mater") (& only sing it when you KNOW your listeners!) High above a Countess' garter, high above her knee Lies the key to her successes: her virginity! Once she had it, now she's lost it It is gone for good!

Jenny Jack she gae'd a plack Helen Wallace gae'd a bottle Quo' the bride "It's o'er little For tae mend a broken dottle!" 5 * THE GOOD SHIP VENUS -Anonymous It was on the good ship Venus The Captain's name was Morgan My God, you should have seen us! By God, he was a gorgon! The figurehead was a whore in bed, Ten times each day sweet tunes he'd play And the mast, an upright penis! On his reproductive organ! The Captain of this lugger The Captain's wife was Mable He was a dirty bugger! To screw, she wasn't able He wasn't fit to shovel shit So the dirty shits, they nailed her tits From one place to another! Across the Captain's table! The Mate's name it was Andy By God, he had a dandy! Till they crushed his cock with a jagged rock For coming in the brandy! The second mate was Hooper By God, he was a trooper! He jerked and jerked until he worked Himself into a stupor! The cabin boy, the cabin boy, The Captain's dog was Rover The dirty little nipper; We rolled that poor dog over He filled his ass with broken glass, Ten times each day all along the way And circumcised the Skipper! From Calais back to Dover! The Captain's daughter, Mable, Was ready, willing and able, To fornicate with the second mate Upon the chartroom table! The Captain's daughter, Mary, Had never lost her cherry, The men grew bold, and offered gold: Now there's no Virgin Mary! The Captain's other daughter Fell in the deep sea water Delighted squeals revealed that eels Had found her sexual quarter! Aboard the good ship Venus We sailors all were henious: It was our fate to masturbate And that develops meanness! The trip it was exciting The pleasures were inviting All day we blew - all night we'd screw By artificial lighting! One day the good ship foundered And when we reached our station On crags our bags were pound(er)ed We found to our elation We stubbed our cocks against the rocks, The ship had sunk in a sea of spunk And then, we all were drownd(er)ed! From mutual masturbation! 6 IN DAYS OF OLD -Anonymous & Ioseph of Locksley (Tune: "The Girl I left Behind Me") SCA: In days of old, when knights were bold, And rubbers weren't invented; They used old socks To cover up their jocks And babies were prevented! But now we're in the SCA And we always get our fill, sir! For the boys take matters firm in hand And the girls are on the Pill, sir! In days of old, when knights were bold, And women weren't particular They lined them up Against the wall And diddled 'em perpendicular! But now we're in the SCA And any old way is fine, sir! So choose your lass and go to town, As long as she's not mine, sir! In days of old, when knights were bold And paper not invented They wiped their ass With tufts of grass And, thereby, were contented! But now we're in the SCA And a public park's a gas, sir! For a toilet seat is very neat When you have to park your ass, sir! MUNDANE: Last night I slept in a hollow log With the girl I love beside me; Tonight I sleep in a feather bed And she's right there beside me She jumped in bed and covered up her head And said I couldn't find her But she knew damn well she lied like hell So I jumped in bed beside her! I diddled her once, I diddled her twice, I diddled her once too often….. I broke a spring, or some damn thing I diddled her to her coffin…… (shouted:) DAMN! DAMN! DAMN! DAMN! *
- ABDUL EL BULBUL, EMIR! -Anonymous In the harems of Egypt it's good to behold The fairest of harlots appear, But the fairest, a Greek Was owned by a sheik Named Abdul el Bulbul Emir! A traveling brothel came into the town Run by a pimp from afar Whose great reputation Had traveled the nation: 'Twas Ivan Skidavitsky Skavar! Abdul the Bulbul arrived with his bride A prize whose eyes shone like a star He claimed he could prong More cunts with his dong Than Ivan Skidavitsky Skavar! A day was arranged for the spectacle great; A visit was planned by the Czar! And the curbs were all lined With harlots reclined In honour of Ivan Skavar! They met on the track with their tools hanging slack Dressed only in shoes and a leer, Both were fast on the rise but folks gasped at the size Of Abdul el Bulbul Emir! The cunts were all shorn, and no rubbers adorned The prongs of the pimp and the peer, But the pimp's steady stroke Soon left without hope The chance of the Bulbul Emir! They worked thru the night til the dawn's early light The clamor was heard from afar The multitudes came To applaud the ball game Of Abdul and Ivan Skavar! When Ivan had finished, he turned to the Greek, And laughed when she shivered in fear She swallowed his pride, He buggered the bride Of Abdul el Bulbul, Emir! When Ivan was done, and was wiping his gun, He bent down to polish his gear; He felt, up his ass, A hard pecker pass; 'Twas Abdul el Bulbul, Emir! (more) 8 Abdul El Bulbul Emir (cont.) The crowd loudly howled that it was a foul, They were ordered to part, by the Czar, But fast they were jammed; The pecker was crammed In Ivan Skidavitsky Skavar! Now, the cream of the joke, when apart they were broke, Was laughed at for years by the Czar: For Abdul the Bulbul Left most of his tool In Ivan Skidavitsky Skavar! The fair Grecian maiden a sad vigil keeps With a husband whose tastes have turned queer… She longs for the dong That once did belong To Abdul el Bulbul, Emir! *
VIRGIN STURGEON -Anonymous (Tune: "Ruben, Ruben")
Caviar comes from virgin sturgeon The oyster's a prolific bivalve Virgin sturgeon's a mighty fine fish Keeps its' innards in its' shell, Virgin sturgeon needs no urgin' How they diddle is a riddle, That's why caviar is my dish! But they do, so wotthehell!
Shad roe comes from scarlet shad fish The trout is just a little salmon, Shad fish have a very sad fate: Just half-grown, and minus scales, Pregnant shad fish is a sad fish But the trout, just like the salmon Got that way without a mate! Can't get on without his tail!
Mrs. Clam is optimistic Give a thought to the happy codfish Shoots her eggs out in the sea Always there when duty calls, Hopes her suitor is a shooter Female cod fish is an odd fish Hits the selfsame spot as she! From her come your cod fish balls!
The green sea-turtle's mate is happy A lucky fish is the common starfish With her lover's winning ways When for offspring they essay; First he grips her with his flipper Yes, me hearties, they have parties Then they flip for days and days! In the good old fashioned way!
I fed caviar to my Lady I fed caviar to my grandpa She was a virgin tried and true He was a man of ninety-three Now that virgin needs no urgin' Shouts and screams were heard from Now there's nothin' she won't do! grandma
As he chased her up a tree!
I fed caviar to my rooster Every living thing will do it I fed caviar to my cow, Without making lots of fuss Now the barnyard sure looks funny: When they do it, they don't rue it, All the cows have feathers now! So my darlin', why not us?

- 11 OLD DRUBBED DING -Anonymous (Tune: "Old Used Queen") Once I was a swyver of the finest kind, a ruler of the bed But now I spend my days as an old used thing and I find I'm rubbed too red! With a hey-ho derry up and down I sing, never any fun for an old drubbed ding! My owner spends his time in solemn prayer, and dreams of naked flesh I spend MY time in clothbound walls getting slapped when we`re too fresh With a hey-ho derry up and down I sing, never some relief for an old drubbed ding! The other men they sit and talk of baring, thrust and fling But when I come out the wenches flee, and won't give me a thing With a hey-ho derry up and down I sing, never any girls for an old drubbed ding! The other ones can rise and dive and frolic near the ass I'm the Model of Priapus, I'm hard as hell, but must not make a pass! With a hey-ho derry up and down I sing never any fun for an old drubbed ding! But someday soon there'll be a change, in Martin Luther's "rise," And the Reformation's opening "shot" will land between his eyes! With a Hey-ho derry up and down WE'LL sing, Then there will be FUN for an old drubbed ding! 12 TRIMARIAN SHEEP SONG -Anonymous (Tune: Scotland the Brave) Bring me some whiskey, mother I'm feeling frisky, mother I need a sheep to keep me warm through the night! I need a lover, mother No, not my brother, mother I need a sheep to keep me warm through the night! Gerbils don't make it, mother They just can't take it, mother I need a sheep to keep me warm through the night! Owls, bats and other critters Just tend to give me jitters I need a sheep to keep me warm through the night! (bridge) Sheep never talk about it They never ever doubt it Always so placid, affectionate and nice! Give me that lanolin Better than flannel-in I need a sheep to keep me warm through the night! * IT TAKES A NASTY MAN -Braden the Bard (Tune: "It Takes a Worried Man") It takes a nasty man, to sing a nasty song (3X) I'm nasty now, and I'll be nasty all night long! Every single morning I insist on breakfast in bed So my Lady wraps her legs around my head! I say my bedtime prayers when the Mission bell rings eight O send me, Lord, a girl that wants to fornicate! They call me short, dark and handsome butI thank God they're wrong How can I be short, at a full nine inches long? My Liege Lord says I'm slow, but his daughter doesn't mind It's 'cause I'm slow, that I get a little behind….! I've got hair everywhere, from my head down to my feet And in my mouth it gets stuck between my teeth! I'll give you some kissin', girl, every single night If you want more than that, the line forms to the right! They say you are what you eat, I answer "Is that a fact?" If that is true, I'm a nymphomaniac! *
- THE RED FLAG (Tune: "O Tannenbaum," "Maryland," &c.) While walking 'cross the rocks so bare I saw a maiden lying there And as she lay in sweet repose A breath of wind blew up her clothes A mongol who was passing by Lifted his hat and winked his eye And then he saw, to his despair, She had the Red Flag waving there! The mongol would not be denied He said "By God, I'll slip inside!" He stripped down to his underwear, And soon his ass was shining bare The maiden she was not disturbed Nor in the slightest bit perterbed For, come what may, full well she knew, The brave Red Flag would see her thru! The mongol he was shivering His mighty prick was quivering. But soon he knew he'd met his match, He could not penetrate her snatch! Try as he might, his path was blocked, All he could do was fire half-cocked; To quit the fray he did prepare, And leave the goddam Red Flag there! The moral of this tale is plain, But pardon me if I explain; In love, or war - it matters not, You never, ever waste a shot! The mongol's judgement was at fault To penetrate the maiden's vault With Red Flag flying, let it pass: Just shove it up the maiden's ass! OPTIONAL CHORUS: The peasant class can kiss my ass! I've got my Peerage, now, at last! Don't bother me, I cannot work, I'm in a Peerage Circle Jerk!
THE FARTING CONTEST (Tune: Sweet Betsy From Pike)
I'll tell you a story that is sure to please Of a great farting contest at Sutton-on-Pease Where all the best arses paraded the field To compete in a contest for various shields. Some tighten their arses and fart up the scale To compete for a cup, or a barrel of ale, While others, whose arses are biggest and strongest, Compete in the section for loudest and longest.
Now, this year's event had drawn quite a big crowd
And the betting was even on Mrs. McDowd For it had appeared, in the evening edition, That this lady's arse was in perfect condition. Miss Bingle arrived amid roars of applause And promptly proceeded to pull off her drawers For, though she'd no chance in the farting display She'd the prettiest bottom you'd see in a day!
Now, young Mrs. Porter was backed for a place though she'd often been placed in the deepest disgrace by dropping a fart on a Sunday in church And disturbing the sermon of Reverend McGurk! The ladies lined up, at the signal to start, And, winning the toss, Mrs. Jones to first fart; The people around stood in silence and wonder, While her wireless transmitted gale force and thunder!
Now, Mrs. McDowd reckoned nothing of this For she'd had some weak tea, and was all wind and piss; So she took up her place, and her arse opened wide, But, unluckily, shit, and was disqualified! Then young Mrs. Porter was called to the front And started by doing a wonderful stunt: She took a deep breath, and, clenching her hands, She blew the damnned roof off the popular stands!
This left young Miss Bingle, who shyly appeared, And smiled at the clergy, who lustily cheered! And though it was thought that her chances were small, She ran out a winner, out-farting them all! She went to the rostrum with dignified gait, And took from the Vicar a set of gold plate, Then she turned to the clergy, with sweetness sublime, And, smiling, said "Come up and see me sometime!"
The clergy was shocked by Miss Bingle's remark, Though some felt a stirring 'neath vestment and sark, Perhaps t'was the wind - but who could have guessed? And that was the end of the farting contest!
- 15 THE MOOSE SONG -Thomas Payton, et. al. (tune: "Betsy From Pike") When I was a young girl (man) I used to like boys (girls), I fondled their tights (bodies) and played with their toys (curls), But me boy (girl) friend ran off with a salesman named Bruce, You'd never get treatment like that from a Moose! CHORUS: So it's Moose, Moose, I like a Moose, I've never had anything quite like a Moose, I've had many lovers, my life has been loose, But I've never had anything quite like a Moose! Now when I'm in need of a very good lay, I go to me stables and gets me some hay, I opens me window and spreads it around, 'Cause Moose always comes when there's hay on the ground! Now I've made it with all kinds of beasties with hair, I'd make it with snakes if their fangs were not there, I've made it with walrus, two ducks and a goose, But I've never had anything quite like a Moose! Now gorillas are fine for a Saturday night, And lions and tigers, they puts up a fight, But it just ain't the same when you slams your caboose As the feeling you gets when you humps with a Moose! I've tried many beasties on land or on sea I've even tried hump-backs that humped back on me! Sharks are quite good, tho they're hard to pull loose But on dry land there is nothing quite like a moose! Woodchucks are all right except that they bite And foxes and rabbits won't last thru the night! Cows would be fun, but they're hard to seduce But you never need worry should you find a moose! Step in my study, and trophies you'll find A black striped tiger and scruffy maned lion You'll know the elephant by his ivory tooth And the one that's a-winking, you know is the moose! The lion succumbed to a thirty-ought-six Machine guns and tigers I've proved do not mix The elephant fell by a bomb with a fuse But I won't tell a soul how I did in the moose! I've found many women attracted to me A few of them have had me over for tea Some say that they love me when they're feeling loose But I'd trade the world's women for one lovely moose! The good Lord made Adam, and then He made Eve Said He: "If you sin now, I'll ask you to leave!" They left not because of Eve's forbidden fruit But 'cause Adam decided the moose there were cute! (more!) 16 The Moose Song (Cont.) The English are said to like boars who've had corn The Celtics just dream of the young Unicorn The Germans, it's said, just need leather and rope But give me a moose and I'll no longer mope! Now I've broken the laws in this god-awful state They've put me in prison and locked up the gate They say that tomorrow I'll swing from a noose But my last night I'll spend with a good sexy moose! Next morning the Governor's word reached my ears "We've commuted your sentence to ninety-nine years!" "You won't get parole; not a five minute's truce, And your friend goes to Sing-Sing, he's so big-a-moose!" (slowly) Now that I'm old and advanced in me years, I'll look back on me life, and I'll shed me no tears, As I sit in me chair with me glass of Mateuse, And play hide the salami with Marvin (Millie) the Moose! THE ANCIENT AND OLD IRISH CONDOM -Anonymous (Tune: "Rosin the Beau") (Recorded: "Celtic Pride: In Strange Form") I was up to me arse in the muck, Sir, with a peat contract down in the bog When me shovel it struck something hard, Sir, that I thought was a rock or a log T'was a box of the finest old oak, Sir, T'was a foot long, and four inches wide and not giving a damn for the Fairies I just took a quick look inside Now I opened the lid of this box, Sir, and I swear that my story is true T'was an ancient and old Irish condom A relic of Brian Boru T'was an ancient and old Irish condom T'was a foot long, and made of elk hide, With a little gold tag on it's end, Sir, with his name, rank, and stud fee inscribed Now, I cast me mind back thru the ages To the days of that horny old Celt With his wife lyin' by on the bed, Sir, As he stood by the fire in his pelt And I thought that I heard Brian whisper As he stood in the fire's rosy light "Well, you've had yer own way long enough, dear… 'Tis the hairy side outside, tonight." *
- * THE BANTAM COCK (Recorded: "Celtic Pride: In Strange Form") He was a fine upstanding bantam-cock So brisk, and stiff, and spry… With a springy step, and a jaunty plume, And a purposeful look in his eye In his little black laughing eye! So I took him to the coop and introduced him to My seventeen wide-eyed hens And he tupped and he tupped as a hero tupps, And he bowed to them all, and then, He up and took 'em all again! Then upon the peace of my ducks and geese He boldly did intrude And with glazed eyes and opened mouths They bore him with fortitude… And a little bit of gratitude! He jumped my giggling guinea-fowl! He thrust his attentions upon Twenty hysterical turkeys, And a visiting migrant swan! And the bantam thundered on! He groped my fan-tail pigeon doves, My lily-white Columbine, And as I was lookin' at me budgerigar, He jumped my parrot from behind! And it was sittin' on me shoulder at the time! But all of a sudden, with a gasp and a gulp, He clapped his wings to his head! He lay flat on his back with his feet in the air; My bantam-cock was dead! And the vultures circled overhead! What a noble beast! What a champion cock! What a way to live and die! As I dug him a grave to protect his bones, From those hungry buzzards in the sky, The bantam opened up his eyes! He gave me a wink, and a terrible grin, The way that rapists do…. He said, "Do you see them silly daft buggers up there? They'll be down in a minnit 'er two! They'll be down in a minnit 'er two!" 18 *
THE MODEST WENCH -David of Bagulay
A comely young wench from the south Went travelling far and free She said "I'm searching for love as true as the dove!" And she came to the north country
CHORUS: Saying "I beg your pardon, Sir! I am but a modest wench.... A lovely lively lusty busty rather outrageous wench But a modest one, nevertheless!"
She met with two grinning dwarves Said one to the other: "What bliss! You stand on her shoulder; together we'll hold her And give her a rousing kiss!"
She met with a leering banker Who said "Banking has various facets... I could invest all your money till the ledgers looked funny, But I'd rather hold onto your assets!"
She met with a hungry giant Who roared in stentorian tones "To pepper I'd falter; I'd rather assault her before I devour her bones!"
She met with a country lout who said,"Massage me here on this hummock. Like my girlfriend who felt she should stop at the belt And never got up to my stomach..."
She met with a charming minstrel "At last sir can you show me true love?" He chortled with glee as he patted her knee He rubbed his hands as he fired up his glands He looked very droll as he turned into a troll And sneered "Certainly! From below or above!"
"I beg your pardon, sir! I -was- but a modest wench... A lovely lively lusty busty rather outrageous wench But a modest one....never the more!"

THE SLEEPING SCOTSMAN -Anonymous (last 2 verses by Rich Bailey)
A Scotsman clad in kilt left a bar one evening fair And one could tell by how he walked he'd drunk more than his share He stumbled on until he could no longer keep his feet Then staggered off into the grass to sleep, beside the street
CHORUS: A ring-di-diddle-e-di do, a-ring-di-diddle-i-day He staggered off into the grass to sleep beside the street.
(following choruses as above, repeating last line of verse)
A pair of young and lovely girls just happened to come by And one said to the other, with a twinkle in her eye: "You see yon sleeping Scotsman, so strong and handsome built.. I wonder if it's true what they don't wear beneath the kilt?"
They crept upon the sleeping Scotsman, quiet as could be, And lifted up his kilt above the waist, so they could see.. And there, behold, for them to view, beneath his Scottish skirt T'was nothing but what God has graced him with upon his birth!
They marveled for a moment, then one said: "We'd best be gone. But let's leave a present for our friend before we move along!" So as a gift, they left a blue silk ribbon, tied into a bow, Around the Bonnie Star the Scottish kilt did lift and show!
The Scotsman woke to Nature's Call, and stumbled towards a tree Behind the bush, he lifts his kilt, and gawks at what he sees! Then, in a startled voice he says to what's before his eyes: "I ken na' whaur y'been, m'lad, but I see y'won First Prize!"
Our Scottish friend, still dressed in kilt, continued up the street He hadn't gone ten yards or more, when a lass he chanced to meet. She said: "I've heard what's underneath there, tell me, is it so?" He said: "Just slip your hand up, lass, if y'really want to know!"
So she slipped her hand right up his kilt, and much to her surprise, The Scotsman smiled, and a very strange look came into his eyes, She said: "Why, sir, that's gruesome!" And then she heard him roar: "If you stick yer hand up once again, you'll find it grew some more!"

PUFF, THE TRAGIC FAGGOT -Anonymous (Tune: "Puff, The Magic Dragon")
Puff, the tragic faggot, went on a spree And terrorized the people at the Nudist Colony! Little Jackie Paper, loved that rascal, Puff, But wished he wouldn't use so much of that "greasy kid stuff!"
CHORUS: Puff, the tragic faggot, went on a spree
And terrorized the people at the Nudist Colony! (2X)
Together they would travel, like a boat with billowed sail Jackie kept his fingers pressed 'neath Puff's romantic tail Noble Kings and Princes bowed low whene're they came Pirates lowered EVERYTHING when Puff roared out his name!
A faggot lives for AGES, but not so little boys; Ding-a-lings and Faery Rings make way for other toys. One grey night it happened, Jackie Paper came no more And Puff, the tragic faggot, he ceased his fearless roar.
His head was bent in sorrow, green tears fell like rain Puff no longer went to play along the "Cherry" Lane Without his lifelong friend, Puff could not be brave So Puff the tragic faggot sadly crept into his cave.
- MOLLY MALONE -Ioseph of Locksley In Dublin's fair city, where the girls have no titties T'was there that I first met sweet Molly Malone You could have her for a penny, and be one of many, But for sixpence she would act alive, alive-o! Alive, alive-o! Alive alive-o! But for sixpence she would act alive, alive-o! She was a street walker, and sure t'was no wonder For so were her mother and grandmother too, With a mattress on the barrow, thru streets broad and narrow, And for sixpence they would act alive, alive-o! Alive, alive-o! Alive alive-o! And for sixpence they would act alive, alive-o! She died of a fever, and no one could save her; It was caught from a folkie from Ontario, Now her ghost wheels the barrow thru streets broad and narrow But a ghost can't be had that's alive, alive-o! Alive, alive-o! Alive alive-o! But a ghost can't be had that's alive, alive-o! **
