GUEST,ClaireBear Dumb lyrics to help remember tunes (16) RE: Dumb lyrics to help remember tunes 27 Jul 05


The morris community is rife with this. For example, I recalled these lyrics while trying to place a tune I heard last night midway through a Waterson:Carthy concert:

Nebuchadnezzar he gave himself pleasure
Abusing himself on the Banks of the Dee

Not to mention:

Old Molly Oxford slept on a sofabed,
The cat come up and fell asleep upon her head,
Smothered her until she was dead,
Oh poor Old Molly Oxford.

and of course:

Lumps of Plum Pudding and pieces of pie
My mother did give me for telling a lie.
It made me so sick I thought I would die
From Lumps of Plum Pudding and pieces of pie.

Cheers,
Claire
