A mammoth illustrated collection of more than 125 funny songs, mostly in the folk tradition, interlaced with a multitude of parodies, jokes, recitations and sayings collected by the author over a lifetime of performing. Each song has complete lyrics, melody line and suggested accompaniment chords. Included are Take My Bridgework Back To Mother, Send Me To Glory In a Glad Bag, The Housewife’s Lament and The Piddling Pup. The reading Why She Didn’t Become a Baptist leaves even church groups roaring in laughter.
