Favourite matelot song

Sing sing or show us your ring

So this tawt stripey showed us his ring. Jacko just had time to get his ciggy light out on full flame. I still owe Jacko a pint for that!
 
I assume that 'Zulu Warrior' is a modern version of.............
'This old hat of mine, it's seen some stormy weather'

Can't remember how it goes but each item of uniform is removed with each verse until starkers and beer is thrown up the performers duck run.

[last seen performed in 1959 in the fleet canteen in Rosyth by a 3 badge AB with old stripy Parker looking on [oldest guy in the RN].

Heres the full version of aladin

There once was a lad called aladin, who had a magic lamp,
he bought it of a matelot who was fathoms up a tramp,
he bought it of a matelot, to see what he could get,
and he rubbed and he rubbed, and rubbed and he rubbed and got f##k all yet.
O' tral la la la, tral la la la
sixteen annas in one rupee
A feed of chuff up a sycamore tree
poor bugger janner.

The sultan said to aladin , my palace you will paint
Aladin like a big OD said no i F##king a'int!
so he got a 2" brush and a pot of black enamel,
and stuck it up the ******** of the sultans favorite camel.
O' tral la la la, tral la la la
sixteen annas in one rupee
a feed of chuff up a sycamore tree
poor bugger janner

By ali's foolish action the sultan was displeased,
he called apon is eunichs and had poor ali seised,
the eunicks said to ali, o' please do desist,
the sultan has decreed it,you'll be come one of ust!
O' trall la la, tral la la,
sixteen annas in one rupee,
a feed of chuff up a sycamore tree,
poor bugger janner

It was christmas day in the harem, and ali was standing there,
watching dusky maidens dressed in nowt but there hair,
the voice of father christmas came belowing down the hall,
what do you want for christmas ali, and ali anwsered BALLS
O' tral la la la, tral la la la
sixteen annas in one rupee
A feed of chuff up a sycamore tree
poor bugger janner.

took some doing that!!

Can't remember anymore than this

"Idon't give a f**k for the killick of the grot or the chief of the DB party

I,m off ashore at half past four cause I,m jack me f**king hearty"

Then something about "I,ll be up your flue in a minute or two"

Thought you last was

"I'll be up the line in two days time" but agin am at a loss for more.

NUtty

It continues:-
I'll be up your flue in a minute or two and I know where to find it
It's at the front and it's called a Cnut and your ********'s right behind it. . .

There will obviously be a few more lines I have forgotten. "I'll be up your Shitter for a Corn Dog Fritter Fray Bentos, Fray Bentos" rings a bell. :roll:
 
We are the tanglin good girls are we
we take a pride in our virginity
we take all precautions
against all abortions
cos we are the tanglin girls
up school up school
being a silly old fart can't remember any more.
 
She bore, she bore , she bore a bar steward baby
She bore a bar steward baby in the merry month of may
... etc

There were lots more verses by 1979.

I've played the Wild Rover for many a year
And I've spent all my money on whiskey and beer
But now I'm returning with gold in great store
And I never will play the Wild Rover no more.

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.

I went to an alehouse I used to frequent
And I told the landlady my money was spent
I asked her for a Red Stripe, she answered me "nay"
She said, "Patrons like you, I can get any day!"

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.

From out of my pockets I took moneys bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
She said, "I have Red Stripes, and wines of the best,
And the words that I said, son, were only in jest!"

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.

I'll go back to Jamaica and lie in the sun
But I will play the part of the prodigal son
And if my girl loves me, as oft' times before
Then I never will play the Wild Rover no more.

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.

Is that an ark song, I can remember that being sung quite frequently on 5Wz0 mess, in our version Red Stripe was credit as in :

I went to a tavern I used to frequent
And I told the landlady my money was spent
I asked her for credit, she answered me "nay"
"It's custom like yours, I can get any day!"
 
Does anyone have the words to "Jolly Jack Tar The Sailor"

I know bits like

Then send the bugger off to sea like the bastards did to me



Another one I can only remember one line of goes

The rig of the day for the duty SA was knickers and flip flops
 
The version I remember

I've played the Wild Rover for many a year
And I've spent all my money on whiskey and beer
But now I'm returning with gold in great store
And I never will play the Wild Rover no more.

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.

I went into an alehouse I used to frequent
And I told the landlady my money was spent
I asked her for credit, she answered me "nay"
Saying "Custom like yours I can get any day!"

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.

From onto the counter I threw sovereigns bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
I said, "I'll have whiskey, and ales of the best",
But the words that I spoke, they were only in jest!"

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.

I'll go back to me parents, confess what I've done
And I'll ask if she'll forgive their prodigal son
And if they will do so, as oft' times before
Then I never will play the Wild Rover no more.

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.

And it's no, nay, never
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No never, no more.

Went down to her knees

(END OF CHORUS)

ALL
One black one, one white one, and one with a bit of shite on
and the hairs on her dickie dido went down to her knees

CHORUS

ALL
She married an Italian with balls like a bloody stallion
and the hairs on her dickie dido went down to her knees

CHORUS

ALL
It took three Welsh miners to find her vagina
and the hairs on her dickie dido went down to her knees

CHORUS
