gecko Lyr Req: Our Sarah's Getten' a Chap (9) RE: Lyr Req: Our Sarah's Getten' a Chap 14 Oct 04


Here's the updated version of Our Sarah's Lancashire courtship song. Verses 5, 6 and 8 are additional to the 'Deep Lancashire' recording.


Eawr Sarah's Getten' A Chap

E'dear, there's been some change in eawr 'ouse this week or two
Where once there used to be a din, it's like a Sunday School,
We never feight for apple pie, we very seldom frap
Ana' wot does think the reason why, eawr Sarah's getten' a chap.

Eawr fender shines just like a bell, we've had it silvered o'er
And cat appears to waish itsel' more ofen than 'afore
Eawr lickle Nathan's wiped his nose and Jimmy's brushed 'is cap
And all this fuss is just becoz eawr Sarah's getten' a chap.

'E's one of these young nutty men, they sen e's brass 'an 'o
Me mother's apron's alus clean for fear 'e gives a call
We polished up door knocker too, we're swanky you can tell
But Sarah sez it widna' do, w'shd 'ave to 'ave a bell.

We bought a carpet 'tother neet, to wear it seems a sin
Me Faither 'as to wipe 'is feet afore 'e dares come in
'E never seems a'whoam someheaw he sez he noan th'map
'E alus wears 'is collar now eawr Sarah's getten' a chap.

We'n serviettes neaw when we dine, a brand new bib for Ben;
Eawr Fanny's started talkin' fine, wi lumps in neaw an' then
Sin' Sarah geet her fancy beau hoo fairly cocks her chin,
Hoo has a bottom drawer an' o, to keep her nick-nacks in.

Hoo's wantin' this an' wantin' that, hoo thinks we're made o' brass;
Hoo goes up the factory in her hat, hoo says ut it's moar class;
Hoo's bucked me feyther up shuzheaw, he darno wae a cap,
Ho gets his 'bacco chepper neaw eawr Sarah's getten a chap.

'E comes a'courtin every neet, 'e fills our cat wi' dread
'is sky blae gaiters un 'is feet an 'yair oil on 'is yead
'E likes to swank about and strut and talk about 'is biz'
'E's summat in an office bur' I doan know war it is

'His socks are crimson lined wi' blue, I weesh he'd do a guy;
I weesh he'd pop the question too, or pop his yallow tie,
My feyther darno' raise a row an' th' childer darno' scrap,
We feel we live i' lodgin's neaw eawr Sarah's getten a chap.

E's getten eawr 'ouse all in a whirl 'E's such an 'owlin' swell,
Ah wish 'e'd geet anotha girl an'r go and loose 'isel'
Eawr Parrot goan and copped 'is toes an'eawr rooster conno' flap
We're goin' daft' n' o becoz eawr Sarah's getten a chap.
