Title:Courtin' In The Kitchen (Traditional (arr. by Beatnik Turtle Music))
Related:Irish Songs, RPM Challenge Songs, Songs With Horns
Come single belle and beau, unto me pay attention
Don't ever fall in love, for it's the devil's own invention
For once I fell in love with a maiden so bewitching
Miss Henrietta Bell out in Captain Kelly's kitchen
At the age of seventeen I was 'prenticed to a grocer
Not far from Stephen's Green where Miss Henri' used to go sir
Her manners were sublime and she set me heart a-twitchin'
When she invited me to a hooley in the kitchen
Oh, next Sunday bein' the day that we were to have the flare-up
I dressed meself quite gay and I frizzed and oiled me hair up
The Captain had no wife and he had gone a-fishin'
And we kicked up high life down below stairs in the kitchen
With her arm around me waist, she slyly hinted marriage
To the door in dreadful haste came Captain Kelly's carriage
Her eyes were full of hate and poison she was spittin'
When the Captain at the door, walked right into the kitchen
When the Captain came downstairs, though he saw me situation
In despite of all me prayers I was marched off to the station
For me they'd take no bail, but to get home I was itchin'
And I had to tell the tale, how I came into the kitchen
Now, I said she did invite me, but she gave a flat denial
For assault she did indict me, and I was sent for trial
She swore I robbed the house and in spite of all her schreechin'
And I got six months hard time for me courtin' in the kitchen
Have you ever heard a traditional Irish folk song re-done as a ska song with a Spanish horn riff? Well, now you have! This week's song tells the story of an unfortunate guy who meets his loved one in her kitchen but when they are discovered by the Captain of the house, she accuses him of burglary! This is another track recorded as part of our RPM Challenge 2008 album, Sham Rock.
