Myrtle Lyr Req: '...had a pancake stuck to his bum' (39) RE: Lyr Req: Pig with a pancake on his bum 09 Sep 05


This is the version I know, (and sing!):

Early in the morning
Early in the morning
Early in the morning
Before the break of day.

You know last night,
You know the night before,
Three little tomcats came knocking at the door.
The first had a fiddle and the second had a drum
And the third had a pancake stuck to his bum.

Early in the morning etc

You know our lass
Our Marianne,
Saw her down the street with a nice young man,
Laced up boots, and a feather in her cap,
Thats the way she gets a chap.

Early in the morning etc.

You know old Stan,
The dirty old man,
He washed his face in a frying pan.
He combed his hair with a donkey's tail,
And scratched his belly with his big toe nail.

Early in the morning etc.

Me and wife,
And family o' three,
We went to Reighton by the sea,
We watched clog dancers and listened to the band,
And then we went on Reighton sand,

And we kept eatin' parkin',
We kept eatin' parkin',
We kept eatin' parkin',
Thats why we are so brown............this last is sung to the same tune as the Early in the morning chorus.

I have this version on a very old 'Deep Lancashire' cassette, tho its not on the later cd for some reason.
Regards, Myrtle.
