Liverpool songs (traditional and other)
« on: October 22, 2004, 11:35:04 am »
Found an old favourite of mine recently...

"BACK BUCHANAN STREET"


A feller from the Corpy, just out of plannng school,
Has told us that we've got to move right out of Liverpool.
They're moving us to Kirkby to Skelmersdale and Speke,
But we want to stay where we used to play in Back Buchanan Street,

CHORUS; Don't want to go to Kirkby,don't want to go to Speke,
Don't want to go from all I know in Back Buchanan Street.

(I'll miss the) pub around the corner, with the parlour painted red,
Likewise the green goddesses, likewise the Overhead.
And lots of other little things, like putting out the cat,
Cause there's no back door on the 14th floor of a corpy Tower-block flat.

I'll miss the Mary Ellens, Me Dad'll miss the docks.
Me Gran'll miss the wash-house where she washed me grandad's socks
They've pulled down Paddy's Market, where me Ma once had a stall,
And soon their picks & shovels will be through our backyard wall.

From Bootle to the Dingle, you can hear the same old cry,
"Stop mucking round with Liverpool, at least until I die".

whats yer favourite Liverpool folk song ?
Anyone remember the Original Maggie May ?

or

the one about the Rent Man ?

or

Living descendant of Sir Thomas Brodrick, Vice Admiral of the Red in the 18th Century

whats yer favourite Liverpool folk song ?

Spinners version most famous, originally by Peter McGovern...

I was born in Liverpool, down by the docks. My religion was Catholic; occupation - hard knocks.
At stealing from lorries, I was adept, and underneath overcoats each night I slept.

CHORUS: "In my Liverpool home, D..A..D..D.. in my Liverpool Home, G..G..D..D..
We speak with an accent exceedingly rare; G.. G. .D.. D.. /
(we) meet under a statue exceedingly bare. [ G.. G.. D..D../
If you want a cathedral, we've got one to spare, [ G.. G.. D..D../
in my Liverpool home."A..A..D..D..

Back in the Forties the world it went mad,
and Hitler he threw at us all that he had.
When the smoke and the dust had all cleared from the air,
"Thank God," said my old man," the Pier Head's still there."

Over at Anfield* the shirts they are red. *LIVERPOOL.
And the players play football as though they were dead.
While over at Goodison* the shirts they are blue, *EVERTON.
and the football they play is fantastic to view.

If it's football you're wanting, the team at the top,
is the team that they're singing about in the Kop;
this city has got two great teams it deserves;
Liverpool ... First Team, and Liverpool Reserves.

I took a walk along Lime Street one day,
I saw a "Young Lady" a-heading my way;
"Have you got the right time, love", says I to the lass,
She said, "I've got the time, Jack, if you've got the brass."

When I grew up, I met Bridget Mc Cann;
she said, "You're not much, but I'm needing a man;
I want sixteen kids, and a house out in Speke;
well, the flesh it was willing, but the spirit was weak.

Walton Gaol is the place for a quiet week-end.
Climb over the wall, and you'll meet all your friends.
You can sit and watch telly, drink whisky and beer
and chalk on the prison walls; "Kilroy was here".

We've got wide open spaces like the Wavertree Park,
where it's unsafe by daylight and more so by dark
We've got places of culture like Dingle and Speke,
where they play "tick" with hatchets, and fight with their feet.

We've got romantic places like the Cast-Iron Shore,
where you can find someone else's back door,
We had John, we had George, Ringo and Paul,
the Liverpool Spinners, and the St George's Hall.

Oh, the Green and the Orange they battled for years.
They gave us some laughs and they gave us some tears.
But the Wacker don't want no spiritual rewards;
allhe wants is a Green Card to get into Ford's

Our LIVerpool Ladies will HUG and kiss Men,
but a true virgin Lady you'll find now and then
Our eighteen-foot Lyver Birds perched up on high,
they FLAP their great wings every time one goes by.

Way out in Kirkby, the kids they wear clogs,
there's eight million kids there's ten million dogs.
They play "tick" with hatchets, I tell you no lie,
and they call you a "cissy" if you've more than one eye.

When my last whistle blows & the "Ref Up There" says;
"You've supped your last Guinness,lad, it's the end of your days,"
Take my ashes to Old Trafford and spread them around,
and they won't win a match while I'm haunting the ground.

also found this...

To the tune of "In my Liverpool Home." by Gerry Jones. 2002
to assist his bid to get a third Liver Bird built for 2008.

We're eighteen foot tall, over twenty foot wide, From three hundred feet we survey Merseyside
There's two of here, facing eastward and west, One sees the river and one sees the rest.

In 1911 we first found this perch, with a good view of dear old St Nicholas' Church.
With Donnelly's ship standing proud and aloof, and our little white chick up on Mersey Court roof.

In 1407 when John was the king, We were ON the Town Seal when they signed anything
We started as Eagles - the bird of St John - Till they found our original image had gone.

An artist who'd never seen an eagle before, had seen many cormorants along our sea-shore,
He tried drawing eagles, he tried it for weeks, But we ended up like cormorants with weed in our beaks.

We've BOTH got some Laver; that's "sea-weed" to you. It's quite rich in iodine, but a bit tough to chew.
But over in Clwyd, they bake it instead, As a vital ingredient of Welsh "Laver bread."

Our LIVerpool Ladies will HUG and kiss Men, but a true virgin Lady you'll find now and then
We know who is who from our perch up on high, and we FLAP our great WINGS every time she goes by.

CHORUS;
Liver Birds are the best. tra-la-la Liver Birds are the best; tra-la-la
Venice has pigeons , that's all that they've got.
London has sparrows, that cough quite a lot,
We've got the best that the others have not,
our Liver Birds are they best.

If you want a great drunken sing song...

THE LEAVING OF LIVERPOOL.
Fare thee well, to you, my own true love, I am sailing far away.
I am bound for California, and I hope that I'll return some day.

CHORUS :" So fare thee well, my own true love, and when I return, united we will be;
It's not the leaving of Liverpool that grieves me, but, my darling, when I think of thee.

I have signed on a Yankee clipper ship, "DAVY CROCKETT" is her name
and Burgess is the Captain of her,and they say she is a floating shame;
CHORUS :

I have sailed with Burgess once before, and I think I know him well
If a man's a sailor then he might get along,but if not, why then he's sure in hell.
CHORUS :
Fare thee well to Lower Frederick Street, Anson Terrace & old Park Lane.
for I know it will be a long, long time, before I see you again
.CHORUS :
I am bound for California, by way of the stormy Cape Horm.
I will write to you a letter, love, when I am home-ward bound.
CHORUS :

Oh, the sun is shining on the harbour wall, & I wish I could remain.
for I know it will be a long, long time, before I see you again

and the original Maggie May

MAGGIE MAY.
, Oh, Maggie, Maggie May, they have taken her away, and she'll never walk down Lime Street any more.
Oh, she robbed those lime juice sailors, and the captains of the whalers,
That dirty robbing no-good Maggie May.

O gather round, you sailor boys, and listen to my plea, And when you've heard my tale you'll pity me;
For I was a goddamn fool, in the port of Liverpool the first time that I came home from sea.
I was paid off at the Home, from the port of Sierra Leone, The three pounds ten a month that was me pay.
With a pocket full of tin I was very soon taken in By a girl of the name of Maggie May,. CHORUS.

Oh the first time I saw Maggie, she took my breath away, she was cruising up and down old Canning Place.
She'd a figure so divine, like a frigate of the line, so me, being a sailor, I gave chase, CHORUS;

In the morning I awoke, I was flat & stony broke. No jacket, waistcoat, trousers could I find,
And when I asked her where; she said," My very good sir, they're down in Kelly's pawnshop, number 9."
To the pawnshop I did go, no clothes there did I find, And the police they took that girl from me away,
And the judge he guilty found her, of robbing the homeward-bounder, And paid her passage out to Botany Bay. CHORUS.

Liverpool Town

Oh I wish I was back in Liverpool
Liverpool town where I was born
Where there aint no trees, no scented breeze,
No fields of waving corn
Where there's lots of girls with peroxide curls
And the black and tan flows free
Where there's six in a bed by the old pier head
And it's Liverpool town for me

Now tis seven long years since I've wandered away
To sail the wide sea oer
I took me a trip on an old steamship
That was bound for Baltimore
I was seven days sick, I just could not stick
That bobbing up and down
And I told him, Jack, you'd better turn back
For dear old Liverpool town


Now there's every race and color of face
There's every kind of name
But the pigeons on the pier head
Sure they treat you all the same
If you walk on down Parliament Street
You'll see faces black and brown
And I've also seen them orange and green
In dear old Liverpool town

Liverpool Lullaby (or, The Mucky Kid)

Oh you are a mucky kid,
Dirty as a dustbin lid.
When he hears the things you did,
You'll gerra belt from your Dad.
Oh you have your father's nose,
So crimson in the dark it glows,
If you're not asleep when the boozers close,
You'll gerra belt from your Dad.


You look so scruffy lying dur
Strawberry-jam tats in yer 'air,
Though in the world you haven't a care
And I have got so many.
It's quite a struggle every day
Living on your father's pay,
The bugger drinks it all away
And leaves me without any.


Although we have no silver spoon,
Better days are coming soon
Now Nelly's working at the Lune
And she gets paid on Friday.
Perhaps one day we'll have a splash,
When Littlewoods provide the cash,
We'll get a house in Knotty Ash
And buy your Dad a brewery.


Oh you are a mucky kid,
Dirty as a dustbin lid.
When he hears the things you did
You'll gerra belt from your Dad.
Oh you have your father's face,
You're growing up a real hard case,
But there's no one can take your place,
.... Go fast asleep for yer Mammy.

Oh dirty Maggie May they have taken her away
No more down Lime Street will she roam, will she roam
Now she lives in Walton jail with her tits upon the rail
And the shadow of her arse upon the wall.   ;D

And McCartney did it well last year at Kings Dock.



Also Seth Davy (Ralph Harris always does a great version with his 'dancing doll')

He sat on the corner of Bevington Bush, astride and old packing case,
And the dolls on the end of the plank went dancing, as he crooned with a smile on his face.
CHORUS: "Come day, go day. Wishing me heart for Sunday. Drinking buttermilk all the week; whisky on a Sunday."

2; His tired old hands drummed the wooden plank, and the puppet dolls they danced the gear.
A far better show then you ever would see, at the Pivvy or new Brightion Pier.
CHORUS; Come day go day........

3; But in 1905, old Seth Davy died, and his song was heard no more.
And the three dancing dolls ended up in a bin, and the plank went to mend a back-door.
CHORUS:"Come day, go day

4; But on some stormy nights, down Scotty Road way, when the wind blows up from the sea,
You can still hear the song of old Seth Davy, that he sang to his dancing dolls three;
CHORUS; "Come day, go day...

We used to sing this mainly at away games in the 70's.

Liverpool Lou

Chorus:
Oh Liverpool Lou lovely Liverpool Lou
Why can't you behave just like other girls do
Why must my poor heart keep following you
Stay home and love me my Liverpool Lou

When I go out walking, I hear people talking
School children playing, I know what their saying
Their saying you're grieve me
That you will decieve me
Some morning you'll leave me
All packed up and gone

Chorus

The sounds from river keep telling me ever
That I should forget you, like I've never met you
Oh tell me their song love
Was never more wrong love
Say I belong love to my Liverpool Lou

Liverpool Ladies.

How I love the Marsh Lane girls ; mascara'd eyes and peroxide curls
I love to kiss those greasy lips, just to get the flavour of the curry and chips.
CHORUS: Liverpool Ladies, Liverpool Ladies, Liverpool Ladies, you're loved the whole world over.


Mary lived in Brasenose Road, Hundreds of pounds to the catalogue owed
Couldn't stop her getting "tick", The Guinness she drank'd make a docker sick.
CHORUS: Liverpool Ladies, Liverpool Ladies, Liverpool Ladies, you're loved the whole world over.


Once I courted a Bootle girl, she had my poor heart in a whirl;
fish-net tights and ankle socks, couldn't keep her out of the Betting Shops
CHORUS: Liverpool Ladies, Liverpool Ladies, Liverpool Ladies, You're loved the whole world over.


I once knew a girl from Toxteth Town; She was big and round and brown.
She said she'd kiss and wouldn't tell; But don't believe a Dingle Belle.
CHORUS: Liverpool Ladies, Liverpool Ladies, Liverpool Ladies, You're loved the whole world over.


Glenys was of Welsh descent, owed the council lots of rent;
She played "Bingo" every night, a jackpot win would put things right.
CHORUS: Liverpool Ladies, Liverpool Ladies, Liverpool Ladies, You're loved the whole world over.


Nellie worked for thirty years, in Tetley's pubs selling wines and beers;
Thirty years in a Lime Street bar; You'd think she'd know what sailors are!
CHORUS: Liverpool Ladies, Liverpool Ladies, Liverpool Ladies, You're loved the whole world over.


CHORUS: Liverpool Ladies, Liverpool Ladies, Liverpool Ladies, you're loved the whole world over.

When I was a kid me mam used to listen to this folk programme on the radio on a Sunday morning. I think it was on Radio Merseyside and was presented by a gruff sounding fella who's name I cant remember - 'Jake' something I think it was. Anyway he used to have this theme tune sung by a folk group, I cant recall the title of the track or who it was by but would love to find out!

I know this is a long shot but can anyone recall what it was?

The first line went summat like 'There's dew on the cobbles in the early mornin' thats my Liverpool'

And the last line went summat like ' ...the Northwest gate to Merseyside!'. but thats all I can recall.

Cheers  :wave

Shaun & Willie are great, always good when they take over for Snelly on the breakfast show.

Isn't switching to Radio Merseyside supposed to be one of the signs that you're getting old?  ;)

I'm only 23 aswell, but listen to the Billy Butler show at about 2.30 and listen out for the Bradshaws. QUALITY

Anyway Back to the thread, a good CD for Liverpool both relating to the club and Liverpool city in general  is Scotch on the rocks sold in the Liverpool shop few outdated ones on there now like, but a decent listen anyway IMO.

There's a song called "I'm a Scouser and me grandad comes from Ireland" that I've heard on Billy Butler's programme. Can't remember who did it but I've got it written down somewhere.
