Orac Lyr Add: Bah, Humbug! Any other Songs? (19) RE: Lyr Add: Bah, Humbug! Any other Songs? 17 Nov 02


There is private tape which I converted to a CD which has 10 of John Rudkin's songs. It was a copy of this I sent to Robin. My friend Jan is the only person who ever sings any of his songs nowadays. On Thurs she did "Chistopher the Chiropodist". A song about Jack the Ripper's brother.
"He'd tarted up her tootsies,
they looked so flipping smart
So the coppers left 'em dangling
from undertaker's cart.
I'm not sure how John would feel about his songs being givem away so for the moment at least I'm reluctant to post a complete song. There is an 11th song too which he wrote for Jan but has never been performed yet... it still needs an Appalachian type tune. Its about a young mountain girl who kills off her family one by one.
