click here
for details and an entry form for the BBC Radio Lincolnshire "Write a Lincolnshire Folksong" competition.
You don't have to be a Yellowbelly to enter but the song must have a Lincolnshire theme.

Ooh err can I have a go :-)

Sitting in my Lincolnshire dining room
Food upon the table
I put some mustard on me spoon
And dropped it on our Mabel

Chorus
Mabel Mabel
She was at the table
And now has a yellow belly

Now Mable tried to rub it off
But could not seem to do it
Her belly was now a yellow froth
Stick some roast beef on it

Chorus
On it On it
Put some roast beef on it
So that we can chew it

The first one took a great big bite
She landed on the cooker
It wasn't because of the mustard's might
It was our Mabel's hooker

Chorus
Hooker Hooker
She landed on the cooker
That punch must have shook her

Anybody want to add to it, or refine it :-)

Refine, I thought that's what they did to oil and chip fat to take
out the lumpy bits. The most refined thing in Lincolnshire is several
or more pints of Bateman's. I speak as a short term (25 years) once
resident of Stamford, although born a Steelback and now living in
Middlesex. Hope the competition turns up some good stuff and another
Joseph Taylor to sing it.

Regards

Pete

Lincolnshire is full of good Folk Clubs,
In fact they are some of the best.
There's Gainsborough,Rasen and Barton,
And secondly all the rest!!!!

They're run by the finest of people,
Like Villan and Sooz(and her mate).
Come on and have a sing with us,
But please try not to be late.

There's good and bad music in all clubs,
But in Lincs it's mostly good.
So if you've got a musical brain,
And your heads not made of wood.

Come along now and pay us a visit,
A welcome is assured to each one.
Not only is there great music,
But we also have loads of fun.

Come all ye folk from all over,
Pack up your tents and glad rags.
Come for the music(and the ale)
But please don't bring your fags.

You see our Clubs are non-smoking,
Not like them buggers in 'ull.
We all enjoy breathing fresh air,
Feel good when our lungs are full.

el ted, ossonflags, Sir John and Co,
You're a bunch of first class fellows.
But whilst you fill your lungs with c---
You can't be one of the "Yellows"

But come and visit anyway,
Our doors are open wide.
We promise you great music,
(and you can always smoke outside!!!)

Pete, the competition always turns up some good stuff and there are many good Lincolnshire singers ready to carry on where Joseph Taylor left off! Don't think he ever wrote a song though, so he wouldn't be eligable for the competition.

Why thank you Mr Villan Sir and are you singing at Walesby on Friday?...as I have heard you have a great voice.

Villan joined in very quietly with the choruses last night at Louth Folk Club, where, incidentally we had a very pleasant evening. 2nd and 4th Tuesdays at the White Swan on Eastgate. A warm welcome and great participation.
Don't know if he will sing at Walesby on Friday - should we change our minds about going?

LMAO

I might as well shut the club if I start singing :-)

Mind you if somebody who could play the fiddle really really really brillianlty was accompanying me and maybe somebody who played Uillian (can never remember how to spell that) pipes really really really brillianlty and somebody who plays guitar really really really brillianlty, then I might be tempted to sing "Tom Paines Bones"

Ooops just checking to make sure CARA aren't playing at MRFC on Friday :-)

Sooz, there would be a few startled looks if J Taylor did turn up, self-penned material or not. I know there are still good singers in
Lincolnshire as there used to be when I did the club rounds many
years ago, many, many, many years ago!

I think I've finished my entry now. Just wondered if there was anyone to spice up the competition out there.

wrote this in response your thread, I am hoping to pop it down on the portastudio later today and send it off. Its all about when I was a kid in Boston - 50 years ago now! Hope it turns out all right!

The Grammar School Puppy Dog

Somehow they could work it out, back in 1954
Some kids must have talked more posh, or perhaps the clothes they wore
But some were A class pupils, and some went in class B
And that's how it was the day we met, my best mate and me

Drawing pictures of our Mums, threading beads and chalking slates
The big girls said are you alright ducky? and the big boys called you mate
We always sat together, from five til I was ten
We'd get split up for acting daft, but we'd sneak back together again

The games we played , the way we laughed, and all those things we did
Before I was a grammar school puppy dog, and he was a Kitwood kid

We rode the ranges of the allotments, grazed our knees on every path
Fished at Cowbridge and Antons Gowt - the most fearless frogmen down the baths
We were Cisco Kid and Pancho, always the best of friends
Our little bikes were trusty mounts, at hometime and weekends

We splashed down paint, sang the hymns, wrote stories and did sums
But there came a day we had to part, when we were still the best of chums
Two taps fill a bath, one is tap A and one tap B.
One is warm and one is cold, that was him, and that was me.

The games we played , the way we laughed, and all those things we did
Before I was a grammar school puppy dog, and he was a Kitwood kid

The last time I saw Philip, we were dowtown on the bus,
We were both twenty, I was glad to see him, but I couldn't make a fuss
I was ashamed of my unhappiness, the sad days my life had seen
I was off at college, while he'd worked since sixteen

But if Pooh and Piglets are still playing there in 100 acre wood
If the enchanted things remain, and I think they should
Perhaps two mates are out today - off on a sunny bike ride
In a Lincolnshire town where the sky is big, down by the Witham side

The games we played , the way we laughed, and all those things we did
Before I was a grammar school puppy dog, and he was a Kitwood kid
hey grammar school puppy dog, high school cats,
when you see the Kitwood kids, raise your hats
hey grammar school puppy dog, high school cats,
when you see the Kitwood kids, raise your hats

I'll second that, Les. Trouble is, that still happens here in Gainsborough in the 21st century. Best mates are still torn apart by the 11 plus!
