Theresa and Deborah are out and the kids are asleep; even when I have music on, the house feels strangely quiet; Or at least, it was until I put on the 'R' Certificate Songbook - a wonderuful album of bawdy songs I borrowed from Dad. It's so infectiously delightful and beautifully obscene.

You've probably already heard some of these bawdy songs, or else you're leading a sheltered life. It has some classics like Poor Little Angeline, The Woodpecker Song and Chastity Belt. And of course a medley in the tradition of Sweet Violets.

A few great lyrics to share with you all:
Our head prefect;
Her name is Jane.
She only likes it now and again.
And again, and again, and again, and again.

He said the world was round-o, his balls hung to the ground-o;
That masturbating, fornicating, son-of-a-bitch Columbo.

The mayor of Bayswater, has a charming little daughter,
and the hairs on her dicky-dido hang down to her knees.
One black one, one white one, and one with a bit of shite on...
But wait, it gets worse:
You'd need a gold miner, to find her vagina,
and the hairs on her dicky-dido hang down to her knees.
And she's not the only one:
He was lousy and dirty and covered in fleas;
The hair on his balls hung down to his knees.
God bless the bastard king of England.
And of course, the patriotic ending to that song:
Rule Britannia marmalade and jam.
Five Chinese crackers up your asshole;
Bang, bang, bang, bang, bang.

You know "Poor Little Angeline"?

(Anonymous)
Dear Sir:

So do you know "Poor Little Angeline" from other sources besides the R-Certificate Song Book? If yes, would you mind singing your version over the phone for folklore purposes?

Any help is appreciated.

Sincerely,

John Mehlberg

>'So do you know "Poor Little Angeline" from other sources besides the R-Certificate Song Book?'

Not really. It's just such a great song that I presumed it to be a classic. A while back, while (unsuccessfully) looking for information on the 'R' Certificate Song Book, I came across a recording of an Oscar Brand version of Poor Little Angeline, but it didn't really live up to the one on the 'R' Certificate Song Book.

So far I've only had a brief look at your website, but I'm impressed. I must investigate some more...

I had this. Well, my late dad owned it. I'm not sure if I or my sister have it in a box somewhere still on LP 33. God I used to love listening to these songs.

Thanks for commenting. I think one key to its appeal is the infectious feeling of fun and mischief that in part comes from the multitrack recording.
