THE MARROW SONG (OH WHAT A BEAUTY!) (Edrich Siebert) Billy Cotton & His Band (vocal; Alan Breeze) - 1952 Adge Cutler & The Wurzels - 1968 Joey Kaye (feat. in the film "Kes") - 1969 Mike Reid - 1973 Fantasy - 1973 Also recorded by: Ian Whitcomb As recorded by BILLY COTTON & HIS BAND: Down the road there lives a man I'd like you all to know He grew a great big marrow for the local flower show And when the story got around, they came from far and wide And when the people saw the marrow, everybody cried (Ooooh! What a beauty!), I've never seen one as big as that before (Ooooh! What a beauty!), It must be two feet long or even more It's such a lovely colour, and nice and round and fat I never thought a marrow could grow as big as that (Ooooh! What a beauty!), I've never seen one as big as that before (Oh-Oh-Ooooh! What a beauty!, we've never seen one as big as that before) He was leaning on the garden gate the other day And beckoned to a lady who lives just across the way He took her down the garden path and showed it her with pride And when she saw the size of it, the little lady sighed (Ooooh! What a beauty!), She'd never seen one as big as that before (Ooooh! What a beauty!), It must be two feet long or even more It's such a lovely colour, and nice and round and fat I never thought a marrow could grow as big as that (Ooooh! What a beauty!), I've never seen one as big as that before (It's stupendous!) (It's colossul!) (It's gigantic!) (It's bigger than that!) And then the flower show was held and everybody went To see the great big marrow, lying there inside the tent Soon the judges came along to give the prizes out They only took one look at it and then began to shout (Ooooh! What a beauty!, we've never seen one as big as that before) (Ooooh! What a beauty!, it must be two feet long or even more) It's such a lovely colour, and nice and round and fat I never thought a marrow could grow as big as that (Ooooh! What a beauty!, we've never seen one as big as that before Oooo-oooo-oooh! I've never seen one as big as that before (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - May 2011)
