MY BROTHER MAKES THE NOISES FOR THE TALKIES (Charles Amberg / Fred Raymond / Rudolf Bernauer) Albert Whelan - 1930 Jack Payne & The BBC Dance Orch. - 1930 Jack Hylton & His Orch. - 1931 The Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band - 1966 As recorded by ALBERT WHELAN: (Sound Effects) Ah, d'you hear that? My brother, he makes the noises for the talkies Listen (Sound Effects) Now, this is what I hear when I'm in bed A bang, a rattle, like thunder overhead Then cat's miaow, and dog's bow-wow The only sleep I'll get is when I'm dead A shot goes crack, a gale starts blowing A duck goes quack, a cock starts crowing Though you might think I'm kidding you Yet what I say is true, just listen, I'll explain to you My brother makes the noises for the talkies There's not a single noise that he can't do If you've forgotten what a parrot's squawk is Our Bill can illustrate that squawk to you He does the noise escaping from liners leaving dock He'll fake a razor scraping or else a cuckoo clock My brother makes the noises for the talkies There's not a single noise that he can't do Now I'll show you how good my brother is You just listen while he makes the noises It was a beautiful day (Sound Effects) Georgie arrived on his bicycle (Sound Effects) So Mary ran to meet him (Sound Effects) And then they kissed (Sound Effects) Three weeks later they got married Listen to the wedding bells (Sound Effects) Two years later, glorious peace and quiet in the home (Ma-ma, Da-da) Then Mary's mother arrived and got a warm welcome (Who asked you to come and stay here?) (Don't you speak to me like that!) (Yes, I will. Mind your own business. get out) (Ooh, ooh, oh!) And so they all lived very happily ever after (Gertcha!) Goodnight everybody He'll imitate a setter, a pheasant or a grouse But what's even better is his noise for Mickey Mouse My brother makes the noises for the talkies There's not a single noise that he can't do ******************** As recorded by JACK HYLTON & His Orch., with vocals by Pat O’Malley and Leslie Sarony, 2nd June 1931: Now, this is what I hear when I'm in bed A bang, a rattle, like thunder overhead Then cat's miaow, and dog's bow-wow The only sleep I'll get is when I'm dead A shot goes crack, a gale starts blowing A duck goes quack, a cock starts crowing Though you may think I'm kidding you Yet what I say is true, just listen, I'll explain to you My brother makes the noises for the talkies There's not a single noise that he can't do If you've forgotten what a parrot's squawk is Our Bill can illustrate that squawk to you He does the steam escaping liners leaving dock He'll fake a razor scraping or else a cuckoo clock My brother makes the noises for the talkies There's not a single noise that he can't do You'll know exactly what a popping cork is Well, Bill can pop a pretty cork to you He makes the noise that steers make When cowboys make a swoop He makes the noise that beards make When used for straining soup My brother's awfully clever, you know He can do anything in the world Except make two people sleep three in a bed, yes!
