After weaving my way through what looks like a bomb site littered with various spam relics
I arrived here so far unscathed to post a song inspired by an old gig buddy of mine, Max Cole who, like myself a Welshman
can't resist a cockney accent now and again.
I hope some of you survived.

Vic
https://soundcloud.com/vic-arnold/thats-a-nasty-cough-youve-got

Chorus.
That's a nasty cough you've got sir
That's a nasty cough you've got
We'll wrap you up in an iron bed,
'cos if we don't you'll soon be dead
and you can't say that we ain't said
That's a nasty cough you've got.

You were a famous fiddler
You fiddled all your friends
You fiddled with your violin
and one day made it bend
You fiddled with your mother's gin
and fiddled just for fun
You fiddled with what the cat brought in
and now your fiddling's done
Ch.
There's a nasty smell on the landing
It's coming from your door
It wafts up through your ceiling
and comes down through your floor
It could be what your smoking
or something gone to rot
Get some Vick and rub it on quick
That's a nasty cough you've got
Ch.
That's a nasty song you're singing
That's a nasty song is that
You're tone is much too piercing.
You're pitch is rather flat
You'll never get a penny
in your old tin pot
Those bells will soon be ringing
That's a nasty cough you've got.
Ch.


It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

Too many people around here sneezing and coughing. Dont know why they go out and get everybody else sick but they do.

Fun song, reminds me a bit of some of the St Patricks day bands i've seen over the years

Fun song Vic, this place needs a little upbeat toe-tapping music!

steady-eddie.



Joke: (1st bloke with a quick upper class London accent.......2nd bloke with a much slower cockney accent)


1st man: "I say there old chap, were you in the boat when it turn't over?"

2nd man: "No, you silly arse....... I was in the water!" (amended per Vic)

Now that's entertainment... and it arrived at exactly the right time, Vic... and Max by default! I'm guessing Brian is away from the shop... otherwise, our visiting Spammer would probably be wondering what hit him! (Maybe he/she will catch that Nasty Cough you guys are spreading around so enjoyably.)

Thanks for the fun song. Great job!

A little gruesome in spots...such as wondering what this means;

"There's a nasty smell on the landing
It's coming from your door
It wafts up through your ceiling
and comes down through your floor"


Now that is "visuals."
Loved that word, "wafts."


I really enjoyed your song Vic. Nice Job.

Martin

Thanks, Fdemetrio.
Interestingly, yesterday morning I woke up with a headache and a cough that got progressively worse through the day.
Still with me this afternoon.
I blame the guy who set the mikes up last Friday on open night. He looked how I feel now.

I had to grin over you comparing the cockney sound to Irish bands but I understand it has that same rhythm of the reel.

Hi there Eddie.
Haha! A bit of a mixture of cockney, American and aristocrat there. :-)
A cockney would rarely say "old chap". That's more an "upper class" phrase.
Also "silly ass" would be pronounced and written, "silly arse".

Thanks for the humour.

I had alot of Irish music playing in my house at a young age. Cockney i thought was just an english accent. But it had that vibe of irish folk

True Cockney is an East London accent. If you were born within the sound of Bow bells you are a true cockney. British accents and indeed language vary a lot. I find some, like from Newcastle and Glasgow, Scotland hard to understand.
The tone I was going for is a British hit from the early '60's called "My old man's a dustman".
(Garbage man in the US).

My dad would frequently call me a silly ass. It was meant in the sense of a donkey. Arguably, I was also a silly arse, but that's not what he meant.

Hi Gavin.
My dad would often use the term "silly arse" but not in a nasty way.
I still use it now.

Very much in the Joe Brown, Chas and Dave groove Vic. Did you ever work with any of these cockney icons?
A good pub song for Friday and Saturday night knees ups.
Also reminded me of stuff they did on that show from the late 50s early 60s Star and Garter with Kathy Kirby and that jewish cockney comic who name escapes me . I recall him trying to chat me up in the early 80s when he had a junk/ antique stall on Burnley flea market lol

Some lines are just fun to sing for no apparent reason. "That's a nasty cough you've got sir" falls into that category."

Same goes for "We'll wrap you up in an iron bed." I have no idea why the bed has to be iron, but it just rolls off the tongue.

Great tune and production too. I enjoyed it!

Hi Travis.
Never did meet up with Chas and Dave but I think the comic you are thinking of is Ray Martine.
I saw him work in a pub in Bethnal Green. Very funny in his day.
Thanks for looking in.

It's never too late? Yes it is, so do it now.

If, given time, a monkey can write the complete works of Shakespeare maybe there's hope for me.

You hit it on the head Gavin.
One of the lines to start another verse began "You drove through Kirby Muxloe".
It didn't have anything going for it apart from the name of the place which brought a smile.

An iron bed is a reference to the old so called "iron lung".

Thanks for the comments.

I did think of the iron lung when I heard it, but didn't think it could be that because that would be for someone who can't breathe at all and therefore can't cough. Excuse me while I polish my trophy from the International Pedants Association smile

Thanks again Gavin. The poor chap is heading in that direction.
I did also wonder if "Vick" was in use across the pond.

It's veering off-topic, Vic, but the reason I even know about iron lungs is because of my home town's claim to fame. If you scroll down the page at the link below, you can even see an iron lung in one of the photos.

Hi again Gavin.
The reason I first came to hear about it was because my father suffered with chronic bronchitis from an early age and got pneumonia when I was a kid of about 8.
I can remember them taking him away in an ambulance and days later my mother was talking to neighbours and said he was on an iron lung.
My dad managed to struggle on to the age of 54 but I never heard him complain. He lived as much life as he could to the end.
