Sailorly Songs whilst on the Runs

Discussion in 'Social & Reunions' started by Always_a_Civvy, Jan 31, 2007.

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. ...No not those sort of runs stupid... Rum Ration Runs...

    Fletch has warned those of us going for a trot down Whitehall via her watering holes, that we must sing to the civvies! Eek! Now of course all you real sailor types will know what to expect and what this entails, but us lifelong civvies are unsure if this means Christmas Carols, Ribald Rugger songs, Wet Water polo gurgles or Sea Shanties... or does it mean Shep Woolley type singalongs like 'Ram it I'm RDP' [Ram what? Where? How? - or is Shep into Sheep? :shock: :wink: :lol: ]

    Please Real Sailors, Civvy needs guidance...
     
  2. Ribald Rugger songs that were originally matelot songs along with Shep Wooley stuff

    There once was a lad called Aladin
    He had a magic lamp
    He stole it off a sailor who'd bought it of a tramp
    and though he's been there rubbing to see what he could get
    Well he's rubbed and he's rubbed and he's rubbed and he's rubbed
    and he aint got F*** all yet

    Oh fala la la la fiddle diddle dee
    sixteen anna's is one ruppee
    Feed of AR*E in the west country
    Cor bugger Janner

    The Sultan said to Aladin My palace you will paint
    Alandin like a big OD said no I F**ki*g aint
    and then he took a one inch brush and a pot of black enamel
    and he stuffed it up the Ar**le of the Sultans favourite camel

    etc etc

  3. She stood on the bridge at midnight.....
     
  4. The lobster song
    The preacher in the Dockyard church
    The alphabet song
    There were three crows
    The old sod
    We're the twins ting-a-ling-a-ling
    Old King Cole
    Aggie's on the shit shute
    Barnacle Bill the Sailor
    A is for ------- (recitation)

  5. That's the Lobster Song chorus NZ bootie.

    Add the following:-

    Digging up Father's grave
    Eton boating song
    A matelot and a pongo
    Me no likee English sailor
    Come and join the spare crew
    Walking thro' the Dockyard in a panic (Medley)
    Limericks (That was a very good song). Good one this! When the instigator runs out of verses, anyone can join in with one of his own.

    Incidentally, I can remember SOME of the words to MOST of the above (and see previous post), should anyone require them. Between us we could probably fill in the gaps.

  6. Perhaps we need to ask Uncle Albert to write us a Rum Ration Song (to celebrate belatedly our First Anniversary)?

    In the meantime we still have songs like Nobby Hall...

    Nobby Hall a young OD cleaned his suit in CTC
    he hung it in the Mess to dry, his oppo lay asleep nearby
    and all night long the fumes arose and drifted up his oppos nose.

    When the Shaker's voice was heard, there was one that did not stir
    Nobby wept and wailed no end, to think that he killed his best friend
    The funeral was a grand affair the RNBT rep was there.

    So sailors please be ruled by me if your suit in CTC
    always take the greatest care to hang it in the open air
    but must better if you can, hang it by a Wardroom fan!
     
  7. Forgot to add Old MacDonald's Farm

  8. I can remember when we were at Raleigh we went on some exped, I think Tregantle or similar, where one of the instructors taught us a song - I think it's the "engineers song" but I can only remember a bit of it - anyone finish if off for me...

    I once knew an engineer before he died
    Pa Rum Titty Bum Titty Bum Titty Bum
    I once knew an engineer before he died
    His wife was never satisfied
    Pa Rum Titty Bum Titty Bum Titty Bum

    So he bought her a cock of steel,
    Pa Rum Titty Bum Titty Bum Titty Bum
    So he bought her a cock of steel
    It was driven by a fcuking great wheel
    Pa Rum Titty Bum Titty Bum Titty Bum

    The fcuking great wheel was driven by steam
    Pa Rum Titty Bum Titty Bum Titty Bum
    The fcuking great wheel was driven by steam
    It's big brass balls were filled with cream
    Pa Rum Titty Bum Titty Bum Titty Bum

    Anyone know the rest please????

  10. Engineers Song
    Ah-hum, titty-bum, titty-bum, titty-bum,
    An engineer told me before he died,
    Ah-hum, ah-hum.
    An engineer told me before he died,
    I have no reason to believe he lied,
    Ah-hum, titty-bum, titty-bum, titty-bum,
    Ah-hum, titty-bum, titty-bum, titty-bum.
    An engineer told me before he died,
    And I have no reason to believe that he lied,

    (Chorus) That no matter whatever he tried,
    His girlfriend was never satisfied!

    (Chorus) That girl she had a C#%$ so wide
    She could never be satisfied,

    (Chorus) The engineer was a designer,
    Measured the bore of her vagina,

    (Chorus) Then he built her a C#%K of steel,
    Powered by a bloody great wheel,

    (Chorus) Yes he built a bloody great wheel,
    Two brass balls and a @#%$ of steel

    (Chorus) Two balls of brass were filled with cream,
    And the whole bloody issue was driven by steam.

    (Chorus) He tied his girl to the leg of the bed,
    Tied her hands above her head,

    (Chorus) There she lay demanding a @#%$,
    He shook her hand and wished her luck,

    (Chorus) Round and round went the bloody great wheel,
    In and out went the @#%$ of steel,

    (Chorus) Up and up went the level of steam,
    Down and down went the level of cream.

    (Chorus) Till at last the maiden cried,
    "Enough! Enough! I am satisfied!"

    (Chorus) Now we come to the tragic bit,
    There was no way of stopping it,

    (Chorus) It went like the piston of a train,
    He should have fitted a gearing chain,

    (Chorus) Clouds of steam blew out the top,
    There wasn't a way to make it stop,

    (Chorus) She was split from ass to tit,
    And the whole Fu*&%ng thing was covered in S#1t

    (Chorus) The warning in the story is,
    Always fit a safety switch,

    (Chorus) The crux of the matter is plain to be seen,
    You should never trust a @#%$ MACHINE!

  12. AAC, as an aside, CTC (carbon tetra chloride) was a clear liquid found in fire extinguishers. Hence the reason Jack used it as a cleaning agent. However, because of the toxic element and its misuse, a Red dye was added to stop the dry cleaning of suits.

    Keep Striving.
     
  13. They used to use it at dry cleaners, if they don't still? LOVELY SMELL! :smile:
