Flash Company Norf and Sarf - cockney songs (72* d) RE: Norf and Sarf - cockney songs 23 Feb 12

From Sidney Carter of 'Lord of the Dance' fame

Me farver was a cupid an' me muvver wheeled a barrer,
That's why I'm 'ere in Piccadilly wiv me bow and arrer,
One leg up an' one leg darn, like an old cock-sparrer,
Flyin' over Piccadilly wiv me bow an' arrer!

Caesar came across the sea an' thought the girls were pretty,
Look at all the Roman noses walkin round the city.

William came to conquer us an' now we have some Yanks, sir
If you look like Billy Clinton you know who to thank , sir

What's the Cockney pedigree, I'm surprised you ask it
Everybody's gone and stuck a bun into the basket.

(The President of the US changes to suit circumstances, I think it was Jimmy Carter when Sidney wrote it!)
