roopoo Lyr Req/Add: Mary Ellen at the Church Turned Up (58* d) RE: Lyr Req: Mary Ellen at the Church turned up 22 Oct 00

Oh Lord, this is one getting dragged from the back recesses! Apologies for the presentation.

Mary Ellen at the church turned up/ Her ma turned up, and her pa turned up/ Her sister Gert and her rich Uncle Bert/ and the parson in his long white shirt turned up.

But no bridegroom with the ring turned up/ and a telegraph boy with his nose turned up/ with a telegram to say that he'd passed away/ and they'd find him in the river with his toes turned up!

I can't remember who taught me that. It might have been my dad, but I'm sure I was in "single figures" at the time!
