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. ok people, i watched "shipmates" a couple of weeks back n i was angry on tuesday night, when it wasnt one again!!! :evil:

    the 1st one i watched was bout the gunner and the suez cannall and stuff,

    the second 1 i watched was bout the Devonport FieldGun n ireally loved it!,

    the army won in the end only by a mess up, unlucky devonport, (u shud ov won, u were F**kin brilliant)
    anyway, i want to know does anybody know or heard of the song they sang

    i can only remember a couple of lines sumthin like

    "Men of Devon, Men of Devon, Feed me till im 6foot 4"? dats ll i know,

    ive been searchin for da lyrics 4 ages! i jus waan know does anybody know anythin bout the song?????

    ??????????????????????????????????????????????????
     
  2. Does anybody know all the verses to 3 german officers crossed the line (taboo tobuy tobollocky I tabollocky I taboo) song?
     
  3. "Men of Harlech, stop complaining...."

    Unfortunately, I can never hear the real version without hearing this one in my head. :D
     
  4. Bread of Heaven, Bread of Heaven, feed me 'til I want no more

    Them's the proper words, a Google for that should get the whole song. I don't know if they sang the official version.
     
  5. BREAD OF HEAVEN

    Guide me, O thou great Redeemer,
    Pilgrim through this barren land;
    I am weak, but thou are mighty,
    Hold me with thy powerful hand;
    Bread of heaven, Bread of Heaven,
    Feed me till I want no more.
    Feed me till I want no more

    Open now the crystal fountain,
    Whence the healing stream doth flow;
    let the fire and cloudy pillar
    Lead me all my journey through:
    Strong deliverer, Strong deliverer
    Be thou still my strength and shield.
    Be thou still my strength and shield

    When I tread the verge of Jordan,
    Bid my anxious fear subside;
    Death of death, and hell's destruction.
    Land me safe on Canaan's side:
    Songs of praises, songs of praises
    I will ever give to thee
    I will ever give to thee

    With 74,000 Welsh voices singing this at the Millennium Stadium, it makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. :lol:
     
  6. Oh Mr Fisherman, how are you?
    Have you got a lobster big enough for two?
    CHORUS
    Singing roll tiddly oll, sh1t or bust
    Never let your bo llocks dangle in the dust!

    Oh yes sir, yes sir, I have two
    The biggest of the bastards I will sell to you

    CHORUS

    I took the lobster home and I put it in a dish
    I put it in the place where the missus has a p1ss

    CHORUS

    In the middle of the night the missus gave a grunt
    There was the lobster hanging from her cnut

    CHORUS

    I grabbed the bog brush, the missus grabbed a broom
    We chased that ******* lobster round and round the room

    We hit it on the head and we hit it on the side
    We hit that fcuking lobster until the bastard died

    Now the moral of this story is very plain to see
    Always have a shufti before you have a pee

    That's the ending to this story and there is no more
    There's an apple up my arssehole - you can have the core

  8. Not quite sure where you got the "taboo tobollocky" thing, but if memory serves me right; it goe something like this...

    Verse 1:

    3 german officers crossed the line parlez vous?
    3 germans officers crossed the line parlez vous?
    3 german officers crossed the line, shagged the women and drank the wine, inky pinky parlez vous.

    Verse 2:

    They came across a wayside inn, parlez vous?
    They came across a wayside inn, parlez vouz?
    They came across a wayside inn, pissed on the mat and walked right in, inky pinky parlez vous.

    Verse 3:

    The landlord had a daughter fair, parlez vous?
    The landlord had a daughter fair, parlez vous?
    The landlord had a daugther fair, lily white tits and golden hair, inky pinky parlez vous.

    after the lord mayors show though, my memory fails me and I can't remember the other verses.

    If anyone can please fill in the blanks....?

  12. I have heard and sung both versions of "3 German Officers"

    One ( the taboo tabi tabollicky eye) version has what can be best described as a descending walking bassline

    Dum dum dum dum , dum dum dum dum

    3 German Officers crossed the rhine , taboo taboo
    3 German Officers crossed the rhine , taboo taboo
    3 German officers crossed the rhine, raped the women and drank the wine and they all went sieg heil tickle my balls taboo


    Also inserted at random intervals is the refrain

    "Nah nah nah nah weetabix everyday"

    but I really don't know why

    BTW the line "they came across in a tiger tank , one to drive and two to w*nk" used to crease me up


    Engineer song anyone ?

    Rayc RIP

    Anyone got the words of "Colonel Bogey"

    I think it went"

    Here comes the King of Norway
    shooting pellets up the elephant's doorway
    Hitler....he had just one big B***
    Himmler, he had something similar
    and Geobbel had no b**** at all

    or something like that.

    There is also another version

    Don't put the lights off, Sgt,
    Wait till I get to bed and scratch my boll ocks
    They are but only two
    Bollock
    They make a wonderful stew
    Bollocks

    Anyone has the words?
     
  14. The one I used to sing was:

    Three German soldiers crossed the Rhine, taboo taboo
    Three German soldiers crossed the Rhine, taboo taboo
    Three German soldiers crossed the Rhine, they fcuked the women and drank the wine, taboo tabye tabollockyeye tabollockyeye taboo
