Different parody to the one in DT...another one I got from who knows where!

Little boy kneels at the foot of the stairs
Clutched in his hand a bunch of white hairs
O dear just fancy that
Christopher Robin's castrated the cat

Little boy kneels at the foot of the bed
Lily white hands caressing his head
O dear couldn't be worse
Christopher Robin is shagging his nurse

Little boy sits on the lavatory pan
Tugging and pulling his little old man
Plip plop into the tank
Christoper Robin is having a wank

Anyone any more of these...just to add to my collection of parodies and other rubbish!

I just pulled from the bookcase THE POOH SONG BOOK, "containing The Hums of Pooh, The King's breakfast, and Fourteen songs from When We Were Very Young," music by H. Fraser-Simpson, E. P. Dutton, 1961. Apparently before ISBN numbers, but Library of Congress card number M61-1020. Maybe an unsigned copy isn't so expensive... ABE books doesn't show any copies available.

Though Mary LaMarca is no longer here, I am happy to know that her favorite was "Missing".

Maybe my idea should really be a song challenge, but could someone with more talent than I put these 2 poems to music please?

First:

Daffodowndilly

by A.A. Milne

She wore her yellow sun-bonnet,
She wore her greenest gown;
She turned to the south wind
And curtsied up and down.
She turned to the sunlight
And shook her yellow head,
And whispered to her neighbour:
"Winter is dead."

Second:

"The Wrong House."

"I went into a house, and it wasn't a house,
It has big steps and a great big hall;
But it hasn't got a garden,
A garden,
A garden,
It isn't like a house at all.

"I went into a house, and it wasn't a house,
It has a big garden and a great high wall;
But it hasn't got a may-tree,
A may-tree,
A may-tree,
It isn't like a house at all.

"I went into a house and it wasn't a house ---
Slow white petals from the may-tree fall;
But it hasn't got a blackbird,
A blackbird,
A blackbird,
It isn't like a house at all.

"I went into a house, and I thought it was a house,
I could hear from the may-tree the blackbird call...
But nobody listened to it,
Nobody
Liked it,
Nobody wanted it at all."

I feel compelled to add that a group called "Einstein's Little Homunculus" (geek rock, what can you do?) recorded a brilliant version of "Disobedience"(James James Morrison Morrison etc.), set to...wait for it..."Morrison's Jig". It worked astoundingly well with the melody. Then during the instrumental break they launched into what they jokingly referred to as "Gilligan's Jig". :)

Christopher Robin Milne reputably recorded "Vespers" at some stage, though I don't know the catalogue number (presumably on HMV). It appears to have been received with some derision by his peers when he went to public school. Anybody know anything of this? I do have HMV B.2980, which is labelled as sung by one "Master Christopher Robin" and contains four songs from the "Now We Are Six" block - Down By The Pond, The Engineer, The Friend and Us Two. This was recorded in 1928, when CRM would have been eight. As it wasn't unknown for girls to impersonate boys unashamedly at that period (Joe Petersen being the obvious example in the early 30s), there's no guarantee that this is for real. Sure sounds like an eight-year-old, though.

I've reviewed all the posts back to 1997 and followed all the links that seemed promising. I'm looking for a recording of Milne poems with a mix of narration and singing ... not by the British guy ... by a woman and a man, too I think. It was an LP I listened to in the 1960s. I remember (I'm paging through the books When we were very young and Now we are six):
Buckingham Palace, The Four Friends, Nursery Chairs, Market Square, The King's Breakfast, Vespers, Busy(?), Cherry Stones, Sneezles, Furry Bear, Twice Times, Wind on the Hill. I would appreciate any leads or information so I can search for the recording by the name of the album or the narrators/singers/musicians.

Wow, this thread has been going on for a long time. But never too late to correct a 10+ year old error: Joe Offer quite early on put the whole of Changing Guard [for which Milene's title was actually Buckingham Palace] on a post, but misrendered one of its best jokes as "One of the sergeants is after their socks", which makes no sense. Should be "One of the sergeants LOOKS after their socks" - just how a nursemaid would have viewed the duties of a senior NCO in the Brigade of Guards! Sorry Joe - but accuracy matters.

Another early poster reported Ann Stephens's version as being recorded in 1930s: she was actually a young 1940s-50s singer & actress, very successful at the time - she played, e.g., the vindictive troublemaking teen in the film of Josephine Tey's The Franchise Affair.


"Buckingham Palace," recorded by 9-yr-old Ann Stephens in 1941. Music by Harold Fraser-Simson:

Can't help you, but this recent incident might make you smile:

Granddaughter, aged 4, was given a Pooh story CD and enjoyed listening to the stories. Her Mum decided to introduce her to the book, which was the first time the little girl had seen the illustrations. She said, "Who's that?" and pointed to the child in the picture. "That's Christopher Robin," says Mum.

Puzzled silence. And then, "But I thought he was a robin?"

THANK YOU LIZZIE!!!!!!!!!!!

It certainly looks like the record I knew!
I could tell by the content listed and the orchestra which was credited; I knew it was an "educated" children's record, done with style and class.
So glad someone out there knew what I was searching for - that record plays a bit role in the sentimental and musical memories of my childhood.
I've just informed my sister and a Scottish friend who equally remembers those interpretations and who also loves to sing them.
We were reared 12 years apart and an ocean away from each other, but he remembers the same orchestration, the same narrator, singers, etc

Thanks!! Now we're off to try and find a copy of the recording.

WHO WAS THAT ENGLISH SINGER who sang A A Milne's poems put to song and also a few stories from Hans Christian Andersen? I am American, and in the 1960's I listened to a 33rpm record in which all the parts and songs were narrated (not much, small spoken parts in the songs) and sung by an English man with a very distinguished accent, and there were choruses in some of the songs.
I HAVE LOOKED EVERYWHERE!!! My kingdom for the right answer!
No, it certainly isn't Danny Kaye, Jack Gilford, it was an English accent.
The following songs were on the record:
Changing Guards at Buck. Palace
Happiness
Politeness
Halfway Down
The king's Breakfast
Vespers ( C. Robin saying his prayers)
Thumbelina
Ugly Duckling
Disobedience

I HAVE SEARCHED FOR MONTHS-on specialty children's records sites,
on Amazon, through Google, and don't know where else to look -
ANY HELP IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!

The version that I remember hearing when I was a little girl in the 1950's was performed by a man with I think, a British accent. I wonder if the version that you mentioned by Jack Gilford is the one that I am looking for. Do you have any idea where I might be able to purchase it or have a recording made of it...

Gareth,

Is that the one with blood on the carpet and fur on the mat?

If so, I wouldn't have mentioned it at mudCAT

Does anyone have "Three Cheers for Pooh" CD with Robert Tear, Tenor, Philip Ledger, piano, P. 1981 or have a suggestion where I could find it? Mine was lost/destroyed in a recent auto accident.

Does anyone have a copy of the Little Golden 45 RPM record "Two Songs from Winnie the Pooh" - the songs are "Sing Ho for the Life of a Bear" and "Cottleston Pie" I still have the record jacket, with Pooh dancing on the front, but the record was lost by a friend's kid. The band was Mitch Miller w/ Anne Lloyd and the Sandpipers!!! Please let me know if you have any leads, thanks.

The Chad Mitchell Trio's musical rendition of "James James Morrison Morrison" can be found on the "Bitter End" album, which is available on CD. Chad apparently set the poem to music.
