Old Songs that would never had been allowed today!

Discussion in 'Films, Music and All Things Artsy' started by Giancarlo_Badass, Jul 28, 2010.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Was looking through "Controversial Album Artwork" earlier on MSN and drifted off to think about songs of old that would never have seen the light of day in these "modern PC offend no-one" days.

    I offer "Thank Heaven for Little Girls" by Maurice Chevalier:

    Thank heaven for little girls
    for little girls get bigger every day!

    Thank heaven for little girls
    they grow up in the most delightful way!

    Those little eyes so helpless and appealing
    one day will flash and send you crashin' thru the ceilin'

    Thank heaven for little girls
    thank heaven for them all,
    no matter where no matter who
    for without them, what would little boys do?

    Thank heaven... thank heaven...
    Thank heaven for little girls!
     
  2. "Ten Little N*gger Boys"

    "Ol' Zip Coon"
     
  3. I can only offer, everything Crass ever did, its all anti disestablishment. 'Securicor' is about the safest track.

    YouTube - Crass . So what

    "Sambo was a lazy Coon" was a great favorite in the Boy Scouts in the old days
     
  5. Benny Mardones - "Into the Night"

    ♫ She's just sixteen years old
    Leave her alone, they say
    Separated by fools
    Who don't know what love is yet
    But I want you to know

    If I could fly
    I'd pick you up
    I'd take you into the night
    And show you a love
    Like you've never seen, ever seen ♫

    He was 33 when he wrote it, fantasizing about his neighbours 16 yr old daughter. Legal, but not then in the US.
     
  6. 'Little White Bull' by Tommy Steele,

    "When he asked his Momma if a little white bull
    Ever had a chance of turning black
    His Momma said, you silly little bull, you're a pretty little bull, your my little bull
    So please don't ask me why little bull
    You just ain't black.........."
     
  7. Billy K Kramer - "Little Children"

    ♫ Little children, you better not tell on me...
    I'm tellin' you.
    Little children, you better not tell what you see...
    And if you're good...
    I'll give you candy and a quarter
    If you're quiet like you oughta be
    And keep a secret with me

    I wish they would go away
    Little children, now why aren't you playin' outside
    I'm askin' you
    You can't fool me, 'cause I'm gonna know if you hide
    And try to peek
    I'm gonna treat you to a movie
    Stop your gigglin', children do be nice
    Like little sugars and spice

    You saw me kissin' your sister, you saw me holdin' her hand
    But if you snitch to your mother, your father won't understand ♫


    Always uneasy about this one.
    I know what's it about, but bribing kids to stay quiet so they don't see him shagging/kissing their Sister . . . . :pale:

    THE SUN HAS GOT HIS HAT ON

    The sun has got his hat on, hip-hip-hip-hooray
    The sun has got his hat on and he’s coming out today
    Now we’ll all be happy, hip-hip-hip-hooray
    The sun has got his hat on and he’s coming out today

    He’s been tanning n*ggers out in Timbuktu
    Now he’s coming back to do the same to you
    So jump into your sunbath, hip-hip-hip-hooray
    The sun has got his hat on and he’s coming out today
     
  9. Whats wrong with that cheery ditty?............Oh.......Oh I see........ oh deary me.
     
  10. Not quite the same thing, but there’s always Gary Glitter’s Do You Wanna Touch Me (Oh Yeah), the chorus of which should have provided a clue to his hobbies:

    Do you wanna touch? - Yeah! Do you wanna touch? - Yeah!
    Do you wanna touch me there? Yeah!
    Do you wanna touch? - Yeah! Do you wanna touch? - Yeah!
    Do you wanna touch me there? Where? There! Yeah! Oh!

    A cover version was used by HP until they found out who wrote it… Oops!
     
  11. How about these?

    Killing an Arab - The Cure (Not sure if this would be banned)

    Standing on the beach
    With a gun in my hand
    Staring at the sea
    Staring at the sand
    Staring down the barrel
    At the arab on the ground
    I can see his open mouth
    But I hear no sound
    I'm alive
    I'm dead
    I'm the stranger
    Killing an arab

    I can turn
    And walk away
    Or I can fire the gun
    Staring at the sky
    Staring at the sun
    Whichever I chose
    It amounts to the same
    Absolutely nothing



    (He Hit Me) It Felt like a Kiss - The Chrystals (Er.........WTF)

    He hit me
    And it felt like a kiss.
    He hit me
    But it didn't hurt me.

    He couldn't stand to hear me say
    That I'd been with someone new,
    And when I told him I had been untrue

    He hit me
    And it felt like a kiss.
    He hit me
    And I knew he loved me.

    If he didn't care for me
    I could have never made him mad
    But he hit me,
    And I was glad.


    But (slightly of topic) if you want some truly weird stuff that begs the question "How did they get away with that?" Then you can't beat the old Country and Western song titles.......

    How Can I Get Over You if You Won't Get Out from Under Me?

    It's Hard to Kiss the Lips at Night that Chew Your Ass Out All Day Long

    Tequila Makes Her Clothes Fall Off

    Her Teeth Were Stained, But Her Heart was Pure

    I Gave Her My Heart and a Diamond and She Clubbed Me with A Spade

    If You Can't Live Without Me, Why Aren't You Dead Yet?

    I'd Rather Pass a Kidney Stone than Another Night With You

    My Wife Ran Off With My Best Friend And I Sure Do Miss Him
     
  12. Too drunk to ****- The Dead Kennedys
     
  13. Bernard Cribbins, Hole in the ground.

    Well there we were, disscussing this hole
    A hole in the groud so big and sort of round
    Well it's not there now, the groundrs all flat
    And beneath it is the bloke in the bowler hat

    So, some Navvy is digging a hole in the ground, a civil engineer comes along tells him he's doing it all wrong, so he goes all 'Green Howards on his arrse' stoves his head in with a shovel and buries him at the bottom of his trench.
     
  14. A very nice precis indeed - although the "Green Frankies" may have an opposing view! And that's what the ARRSE is all about.
     
  15. My Sharona by the Knack?

    Ooh my little pretty one, pretty one.
    When you gonna give me some time, Sharona?
    Ooh you make my motor run, my motor run.
    Gun it comin' off the line Sharona
    Never gonna stop, give it up.
    Such a dirty mind. Always get it up for the touch
    of the younger kind. My my my i yi woo. M M M My Sharona...

    Come a little closer huh, ah will ya huh.
    Close enough to look in my eyes, Sharona.
    Keeping it a mystery gets to me
    Running down the length of my thighs, Sharona
    Never gonna stop, give it up. Such a dirty mind.
    Always get it up for the touch
    of the younger kind. My my my i yi woo. M M M My Sharona...

    When you gonna give it to me, give it to me.
    It is just a matter of time Sharona
    Is it just destiny, destiny?
    Or is it just a game in my mind, Sharona?
    Never gonna stop, give it up.
    Such a dirty mind. Always get it up for the touch
    of the younger kind. My my my i yi woo. M M M My Sharona...
