Thread Name: Bawdy songs for women to sing
Subject: Lyr Add: THE DINGHY SONG^^
Okay, I'm sorry to repeat myself, but for this thread it bears repeating:

"The Dinghy Song" as heard on the Dr. Demento show...can't remember who sang it. I quoted some lyrics on the "Dirty songs from the '50s" thread, but I don't know how to do clickys so I'll just give you a few here again. it's a GREAT song. :)

"He's got the cutest little dinghy in the Navy,
And all the girlies know that it's so!
The cutest little dinghy in the Navy,
They love to watch him go heave-ho!

It isn't very long and it isn't very short,
It's built for speedy action and it gets him into port!

It isn't very narrow and it isn't very wide,
But you should see that thing go in and out with the tide!

The cutest little dinghy in the Navy,
Heave-ho, heave-ho!

Now I have seen a hundred other dinghies,
And I'm qualified to remark
He's got the cutest little dinghy in the Navy,
Why, I would know it even in the dark!

etc. etc.

At least I remembered the damn line breaks this time...

I wonder if this song would work on the harp...hmmm...
