Subject: Lyr Add: CHASTITY BELT
From: GUEST,Guest
Date: 20 May 17 - 08:31 PM

My sister was at Manchester University in the early '60s when she came home for summer holidays with her guitar and this version (from memory, with a gap or two)

Oh come, gentle maiden, let me be your lover;
Condemn me no longer to mourn and to weep,
Shot down like a hart in my earnest endeavour.
Come, lower your drawbridge, I'll enter your gate.

(Enter your gate, nonny nonny,
enter your gate, nonny nonny,
lower your drawbridge, I'll enter your gate)

I fear, gentle (??), that I am no maiden,
I'm married to Sir Cedric, the cunning old celt,
And he's gone to the wars for a twelvemonth or longer,
And taken the key to my chastity belt.

(Chastity belt, nonny nonny...)

Fear not, gentle madam, for I know a locksmith.
To his forge we will go, on his door we will knock,
And we will make use of his technical knowledge,
To see if he's able to unpick your lock.

"I fear, Sir and Madam, that I am unable;
My technical knowledge is of no avail.
I can't find the secret to this combination:
The cunning old bastard has fitted a Yale."

"I'm back from the wars with sad news of disaster;
A dreadful misfortune I have to confide:
As my ship was passing the straits of Gibraltar
I carelessly dropped your key over the side"

"Alas and alack, I am locked up forever!"
Then up steps the pageboy, saying "Leave it to me.
If you will allow me to enter your chamber,
I'll undo your lock with my duplicate key."

WAVERLEY RECORDS ELP 113 FOUR FOR FUN                EP 1963 (recorded c.9/1962)
Rory and Alex McEwen, Carolyne and Dick Farina
"Four songs, four singers, three men and a girl. It was the Edinburgh Festival of 1962 that brought Rory and Alex McEwen, two of the most popular folk singers in Britain, into partnership with Carolyne and Dick Farina, a husband and wife team from America. The four songs they sing all come from their Festival show. Two are American, one is Scots, and the other, a new one, is naughty in any language. The soprano is Carolyne. The harmonica is Dick. And Rory and Alex the guitars."

Note: "Carolybe Farina" is Carolyn Hester.

Best wishes, Thomas.
