MMario, you asked about a female-perspective version of the Two Magicians...

There's a group called 'The Ravens', who I don't think perform together anymore, who did a version of the song ending like this (I think)

Then the lady, she ran into the house, and she became a bed
Then he became a silk coverlet and over her he spread
Then the lady, she became a moth, and ate a little thread
And when he turned back to a man, he'd lost his little head (HA!)

I've not heard it in long enough that I'm not entirely sure if that's it, but something like that would work, no?

Thanks, Masato. I had forgotten which recent thread these titles came up in and the "unprintable" Mudcat search engine still will not fire up!

Cheerily,
Charley Noble

Speaking of female perspectives, there is, or was, a group in Boston called The Bawdy Ladies (Anne Goodwin, Anabel Graetz, Linda Lombardi), which used to perform a variety of stuff in odd venues, and which issued, in 1986, a tape called _The Bawdy Ladies' Book_, containing the following songs, all amusing & some seldom heard:

Three Drunken Maidens
Christmas Goose
Johnny Be Fair
Eppie Morrie
Sorry the Day
Wife's Lament
Home Dearie Home
Malurous Qu'o Uno Fenno
Maids When You're Young
Nine Times a Night
Isabel and the English Monuments
I Lay with an Old Man
Foolish, Incredibly Foolish
You Were Only Fucking While I Was Making Love
Kitchen Man
Man in the Moon

The last is a women's version of "Roll Your Leg Over".

Masato,

You will find that that book is not yet available. I am in fact editing the manuscript, and it has not been through music editing or layout yet! It has been delayed several times, which I suppose is why it's already on their website as being available!

Hi, Steve -
there were four LP's in Ed McCurdy's "Dalliance" Series (When Dalliance Was In Flower and Maidens Lost Their Heads), Volumes I, II, III, and Son of Dalliance. You can find a new Best of Dalliance (click) compilation at www.rhinohandmade.com. It's a limited edition, only 2,500 copies made. It's expensive, but it's a first-class production with 28 cuts. You can get it at Amazon ($25), but it's cheaper ($20) if you order it direct from Rhino. It's also available at Collectors' Choice, http://www.ccmusic.com/. While you're at it, you may want to pick up the Rhino Handmade albums from Jean Ritchie and Theo Bikel.

I am searching for the lyrics to a ballad 'Tiddly Winks', I was told that there were many versions......all I know of the ballad I am after goes like....

Tiddly winks old beam
Have you ever kissed a queen
Have you have seen a sailor
Eat a can of sardines
Said the Captain of the lugger
To another filthy bugger
Lets have another drink
Before the ship goes down

Any help will be appreciated........thank you....Jack

Am I the only Mudcatter with a copy of "Count Palmiro Vicarion's Book of Bawdy Ballads"? It was printed in France (of course) in 1961 by The Olympia Press, 8 rue de Nesle, Paris 6 and smuggled into the bible-thumpers belt in the bottom of my brother's seabag after a North African (I think) tour of duty. (Can anyone imagine a more seminal gift for a barely adolescent guitar-banger?) The binding failed long ago and I may have lost a few pages but there's 65 listed in the table of contents -- only a few with a sparse melody score.

The Count's frontspiece:
"To those who have written, are writing, and who will write them, together with those who have the sensibility and courage to publish them, this collection is fondly dedicated. And may they drop dead who secretly read and publically burn them -- or else begin their real education."

It's an amazing collection of scatalogical and sexual humor that stands head and shoulders (so to speak) above the respected journeyman works of Mr. Silverman and Brand and others mentioned above.

Anyone know where I can get a fresh copy?

Failing that, I'll trade lyrics of any of the 65 for any others that I don't have -- or any such deal -- let's keep this Folk Heritage alive!

Heard a Verse of Pheasant Plucker in a World Town Crier Competition Show in Shanklin Isle of Wight in 1991.

The Town Criers performing were doing a rendition of "I Am A Lumberjack"
