Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. 8) Anyone maybe, the old and bold :!: recall Jolly Jacks Lyrics to this bastard :?: It was sung to the tune of The Kerry Dances and the few lines that I recall went thus;- "Oh for a lick of a lesbions dildo ohhhh for a feed of the old burnt plum." And;- " While the Chiefs and the Wrens were dancing Jack was having a feed of arse." Any know the full version? I feel that my life and culture would be the richer for the knowing :!:

    My research so far is suggesting that the tune to the second one, the "Chiefs and the Wrens were dancing" one, was the tune to the Floral Dance:

    Not much of a help but a start.
     
  3. If you contact Barry Scott on this website i'm sure he will help you out.

    This is quite an interesting area of Naval history if you have not come across it before:

    Enjoy - i'm sure the memories will come rolling back and good luck with your academic research.

  4. Anyone got the jack version of Ernie, he drove the fastest milk cart in the west?
     
  5. db

    I have found one song which seems to fit but don't know if it is the one you mean:

    ERNIE (HE FLEW THE SLOWEST PHANTOM IN THE WEST)

    You could hear the tyres a-bursting as he careered across the deck
    You could hear the goofers laughing as he stumbled from the wreck
    He flew into the circuit with his wings upon his chest
    His name was Ernie, EEEEEEEEERRRRNNNMEEEEE,
    and he flew the slowest Phantom in the west

    Now Ernie loved a Wren, a lovely lass named Sue
    She worked down the road at Lilstock Range, she was only twenty two
    They said she was too good for him, she was haughty, proud and chic
    But Ernie took his missiles there, three times every week
    His name was Ernie, EEEEEEEEERRRRNNNIIEEEEEE,
    and he flew the slowest Phantom in the west

    She said she'd like to have a flight, he said right oh sweetheart
    And she gazed at him in wonder as he raised his undercart
    Would you like it straight and level, or at aeros have a crack
    She said "Ernie I'd be happy if you rolls me on me back"
    His name was Ernie, EEEEEEEEERRRRNNNHEEEEEE,
    and he flew the slowest Phantom in the west

    But Ernie had a rival, an evil looking swine
    He was swarthy from down the road, the boss of 809
    When he threw it over the shoulder, she knew a longing dread
    She was at a loss with his medium toss, and she nearly lost her head
    His name was Ernie, EEEEEEERRRRNNNMEEEEE,
    and he flew the slowest Phantom in the west

    Now Ernie would not stand for this 'Enough's enough" he said
    And in the bar that evening he cornered poor old Fred
    You've poked around her quadrant hut, and had your evil fun
    We'll fight for her tomorrow man to man in one v one
    His name was Ernie, EEEEEEEEERRRRNNNIIEEEEEE,
    and he flew the slowest Phantom in the west

    They took off the next afternoon, just after half past four
    Full twenty minutes they battled on, and still there was no score
    Then Fred pulled even tighter, he gave it his all
    And Ernie shoved in rudder, and stoofed in off a stall
    His name was Ernie, EEEEEEEEERRRRNNNIIEEEEEE,
    and he flew the slowest Phantom in the west

    Ernie did not want to die, he was only twenty eight
    But now he's gone for ever, flying circles in the wait
    Yet is he in a better place, in that airy fairy land
    Where the flying programme always works,
    and Commander (Airs) are banned
    His name was Ernie, EEEEEEEEERRRMNNIMEEEEE,
    and he flew the slowest Phantom in the west

    For a woman's needs are manifold, and Sue she married Ted
    And strange things happened on their wedding night
    As they lay in their bed
    Is that the wind a whistling through the leaves and the dry rot
    Or Ernie’s ghostly Phantom returning to the slot
    They won't forget old Ernie, EEEEEEEEERRRNNNMEEEEE,
    and he flew the slowest Phantom in the west
     
  6. That one made me chuckle :D

    One that I`ve tried to find, to no avail was one called "Duty EM" to the tune of "Ghost Riders in the Sky"

    The chorus went:

    Doctor Doctor Doctor
    Come see what I just saw
    I`ve just seen the duty EM
    a welded to the floor.

    Anyone know the rest?
     


  7. Well here's a different version:-

    Ghost Riders Song

    This song goes to ghost riders in the sky.



    While I was going down on watch one dark and dismal night.

    I came upon the Second, (a most disturbing sight).

    He stood there in his boiler suite, a spanner in his hand.

    Said "Take this in your grubby mitts, and tighten up that Gland".



    Yippee eye ah, yippee eye oh, night riders in the sky.



    I was stood down by the cargo pump while 'rasing' mighty 'Ark'.

    There was a flash and then a bang and everything went dark.

    The running feet of engineers, the Seconds mournful cry.

    Was worse than all those ghostly, steers stampeding 'cross the sky.



    Yippee eye ah, yippee eye oh, night riders in the sky.



    But cheer up all me bonny lads, to refit we will go.

    We're running low on fags and beer, and down on FFO.

    The only thing that's running high, is the engineers moral.

    As we slowly sink to rest out keel, in that waterless coral.



    Yippee eye ah, yippee eye oh, night riders in the sky.

    I think i'll apply for X- Factor next year !
