GUEST,Lindsay Origins: Follow the Band... (37) RE: Tune Req: Follow the Band... 24 Aug 04


It featured in a film which I think was called "A Hill In Korea" starring David McCallum, I can remember one verse

Oh my husband's a corporal, a corporal, a corporal
A very fine corporal is he
And all day he knocks men about, knocks men about, knocks men about
And then he comes home and knocks me:

Singing hey jig-a-jig, f**ck a little pig
Follow the band....

there is another verse I used to hear my father sing, to the same tune, but I think it's unrelated to this particular song:

I've been in the saddle for hours and hours
I've stuck it as long as I could
I've stuck it and stuck it, and then I said "F**k it"
My bollocks are not made of wood
