The abbreviated versions

Picked up in part from my lustrious career with the Norfolke Trayned Bandes, here is an incomplete list of some songs that are perhaps shorter than anticipated...

Red, Red Robin

When the red, red robin
Comes bob-bob-bobbin' along,
Shoot the bastard!
Shoot the bastard!
Shoot! Shoot! Shoot!

Widecombe Fair

Tom Pearce, Tom Pearce,
Lend me you grey mare.
All along, down along, out along lea.
For I want to go to Widecombe Fair
With Bill Brewer, Jan Stewer,
Peter Gurney, Peter Davey,
Daniel Whitton, Harry Hawke,
And Uncle Tom Cobbley and all,
And Uncle Tom Cobbley and all.

Green Grow The Rushes, O

I'll sing you one, oh!
Oh, no you won't, you know!


There are some things
Man was not meant to know,
And songs man was not meant to sing,
And this is one of them.
