From: pete@ada.com

i would very much appreciate any assistance in finding the lyrics to an old bar song that goes something like... (with a lot of lines missing...) "...and clancy was closing the bar. when a gentleman dapper stepped out of the /phone booth/ and these were the words that he said... ... my mother never told me..."

thanks very much! pete@ada.com

From: Bob

That's the old classic, "The Lady in Red."

Let Her Sleep Under the Bar
(The Lady in Red)


'Twas a cold winter's evening, the guests were all leaving,
O'Leary was closing the bar,
When he turned and he said to the lady in red,
"Get out! You can't stay where you are!"
She shed a sad tear in her bucket of beer
as she thought of the cold night ahead,
When a gentleman dapper stepped out of the (phone booth)
and these are the words that he said:

"Her mother never told her the things a young girl should know.
About the ways of college men, and how they come and go, (mostly....go).
Now age has taken her beauty, and sin has left its sad scar;
So remember your mothers and sisters, boys, and let her sleep under the bar." ^^

    Note from Joe Offer: This exact version is on page 64 of the 1958 printing of Song Fest, by Dick and Beth Best.

Subject: ADD: Let Him Sleep Under the Car
From: dick greenhaus

Which puts me to mind of the Sports Car Season of 1959--

'Twas a cold winter evening, the night before Sebring
McClellan was closing the shop
When he said to a Loafer spread out on the sofa
"Get out! this is no place to stop."
Well, he wept a big tear, he was missing first gear
And he still had to put back a head;
When a gentleman cleanly leaped from a Volpini
And these were the words that he sad:

Ooooh
His dealer never told him
These words one must take to heart.
About the ways of racing cars
And how they come apart
Now age has emptied his wallet
And racing has left its sad scar
So remember your sports car traditions, boys,
And let him sleep under the car.

Names, allusions etc. are local but accurate.

We sang "The Lady in Red" pretty much the same as above(learned it from my father in Omaha, NE, around 1974, but he'd known it since WW2 at least.) He taught us "phone booth" first, but was sozzled enough one night to sing it as "crapper" in my presence...

Okay, Joe, I found a tune in Dick and Beth Best's "Song Fest" the 1958 printing, page 64, under the title "Let Her Sleep Under the Bar". (Four SHARPS? Are they NUTS?) Unfortunately, I have misplaced the printout I made of the ABC guide, and 2 a.m. is not my best thinking hour, so I will have to try to figure it out tomorrow. Unless you rescue me, of course.

Oh how nice! I guess toppling over from sheer exhaustion does have it's uses. I sure agree about trying to read the notation in Song Fest. Small indeed. Even my "picking it out on the piano" minimal musical skills are challenged, and that's hard when there aren't any chords.

I think it's pretty close to the version my Dad taught me. Close enough for bar singing, anyway,

Thanks, Joe

My mother sang it this way from her college days in the 40's.....

The weather was freezing, the guests were all leaving,
O'Leary was closing the bar,
Then the bartender said to a lady in red,
"Get out! You can't stay where you are!"
She shed a sad tear in her bucket of beer
as she thought of the cold night ahead,
When a gentleman dapper stepped out of the (phone booth)
and these are the words that he said:

"Her mother never told her the things a young girl should know.
The ways of fancy gentlemen, and how they come and go,
Life has left her weary, and love has left her a scar;
So remember your mothers and sisters, boys, and let her sleep under the bar."

That was a hoary old fraternity chestnut when I first heard it back in 1958 at Cal. The "gentlemen's" version was often a bit more ribald, as you can imagine. Suffice it to say that the phrase, "What a gash" was appended to one of the lines - etc., etc.

Subject: Lyr Add: MORE TO BE PITIED THAN CENSURED
From: chazkratz

Another song on a similar theme--more serious, but kind of 1890s bathetic--and also in Song Fest:

MORE TO BE PITIED THAN CENSURED

At the old concert hall in the Bow'ry
Round a table were seated one night
A group of young fellows carousing;
Their outlook was carefree and bright.
At the very next table was seated
A young girl who'd fallen to shame;
How the young fellows laughed at her downfall
'Til they heard an old lady explain:

CHORUS: She is more to be pitied than censured
She is more to be helped than despised
She is only a young girl who ventured
Down life's stormy path ill-advised
Do not scorn her with words fierce and bitter
Do not laugh at her shame and downfall
For a moment just stop and consider
That a man was the cause of it all.

There's an old-fashioned church 'round the corner
Where the neighbors all gathered one day,
While the parson was preaching a sermon
O'er a soul that had just passed away;
'Twas this same wayward girl from the Bow'ry
Who a life of adventure had led.
Did the clergyman jeer at her downfall?
No! He asked for God's mercy, and said:

Not having at hand my copy of Song Fest, I wrote out the first verse and chorus from memory, then Googled the song and found the second verse in the third link--the first two being references to the murder of a pregnant young prostitute, Sarah Cornell, and the trial of the Methodist minister she implicated. After a long trial, the minister. Ephraim Avery was acquitted. This happened in Fall River, Massachusetts, where Lizzie Borden was acquitted of taking an ax to her father and mother--and where the Catholic bishop a few years ago refused to grant a dispensation for his Irish parishioners to eat corned beef on St. Patrick's Day--so many of them rented a bus to travel to New York where the bishop did allow the consumption of the traditional feast. This event inspired a Mudcat song challenge.

I learned the song in 1952 while tending bar part-time at the officers club in Suwon Korea. The pilots who flew missions during the day would get pie-eyed every night and ultimately end the night singing the song. Boy, did they sing loud.

In my college days (1950s), we sang "phone booth", but with a slight pause before, to help slower listeners get the point of the bad rhyme.

Lighter:
I can't remember what else they sang but that tune was the loudest and was a must sometime during the evening. It was understandable why they had to unwind every night and get smashed. They were alive another day.
I still can't figure how they got drunk every night then rose early to fly into combat....

I was working on a summer camp staff in 1958 when I learned that song from a buddy who was attending the University of California. He heard it from friends in a fraternity the previous fall, which would have put it one year prior to the printing of my copy of the Best book, "Sing Out." It likely has a long and traditional history, perhaps associated with academia. I lost that book for a time, but have recovered it after a long search. There are several gems in that publication and I have no idea if it is replaceable.

A friend of mine was in the R.C.A.F. and his version was similar to some of the others but after many an ale an argument we settled on this ( by no means correct ) revised version.


Twas a cold winter's evening, the guests were all leaving,
And Clancy was closing the bar,
When he turned and he said to the lady in red,
"Get out! You can't stay where you are!"
She shed a sad tear in her bucket of beer
as she thought of the cold night ahead,
When a gentleman dapper stepped out of the crapper
and these are the words that he said:

"Her mother never told her the things a young girl should know.
About the ways and wares of big city men
and how they come and go
Now age has taken her beauty, and sin has left its sad scar;
Now remember your mother and sisters ( said to everyone )
So be a good fellow O'leary and let her sleep under your bar." ( and here you get everyone to join in the plea)

This was one of many of the old college songs my parents taught me and my siblings years ago (60s 70s) and which we sang mainly on the long drives up North during the summer packed in the old station wagon. We sang it with the "gentleman dapper stepped out of the crapper" version which of course resulted in many giggles.   I just learned that my brother's 7-yr old daughter sang this song at school today for St. Paddy's day passing on the proud tradition of loudly singing old drunken college songs.

My thanks to Bob (21 Jul 97) for the first version, which is almost identical to the one I heard in the early 50's from a fellow college man in our group of S&P (Scientific & Professional) draftees. Of course, that word in the seventh line rhymed with "dapper". And isn't the last line addressed to O'Leary? Shouldn't it read, "So remember your mother and sisters, lad, and let her sleep under the bar."?

Thank you for posting these lyrics. My father sang this song to all of us kids as a lullaby in the 80's and now we all sing it to our own chilren.... Our version is slightly different from the ones i've read above... but i'm not surprised My Pop never had a problem with modifying (making up) any lyrics he couldn't quite remember. He passed away this past December and we are planning a burial service for him at a national cemetery in July. I trying to find a bagpiper and have him play the tune to this song at the service. It might have been a drinking song at its origin, but for me and my siblings it is a sweet memory of my Dad singing us to sleep each night.

When you're seven, "crapper" is funny. When you're 12, "phonebooth"--preceded by a meaningful pause ---is funny.By 17, when I learned the song, "phonebooth", with no pause was was funnier. Still is.

Like a post above, this was a song our family sang on car rides in the 1970's, taught by my mother who likely learned it from her father who was in a fraternity at Union College,NY in the late 1920's. We learned the "gentleman handsome stepped over the transom" line, as well as "ways of college men, and how they come and go, [mostly go]." Also at the last lines, it was, "Let her sleep under the bar ["between the bottles" added a la barbershop style], Let her sleep under the bar."
