Carl MacDougall/ Ron Clark

Oh, oh, Glory Hallelujah,
Cod Liver Oil and the Orange Juice.

Oot o the East there cam a hard man.
A’, A’, the way frae Brigton.

He went intae a pub an he cam oot paralytic.
Aw haw, V. P. an cider.

‘Does this bus go tae the Denny Palais,
Aw haw, I’m lookin for a lumber,’

In the Palais he met Hairy Mary,
Aw haw, the flo’er o the Calton. 

He says tae her : ‘Hey hen are ye dancing?’
‘Naw, naw, it’s just the way ah’m staunin.’

He says tae her : ‘Ye’re wan in a million.’
‘Aw, haw so’s yer chances.’

‘Can I run ye hame, I’ve gpt a pair o sannies.’
‘Aw haw, ye’re helluva funny.’

Up the back close an doon the dunny.
Naw, naw, it wisna for the first time.

Her mammy came oot tae go tae the didgy.
Aw haw, he buggered aff sharpish.

She tried tae find the hard man. He’d jined the Foreign Legion;
Aw haw, Sahara an the camels.

So Hairy Mary had a little baby.
Aw haw, its faither’s in the Airmy.

Footnote: A song long associated with the late, great Hamish Imlach (1940 - 1996), whose ‘evil’ laugh added immensely to the number. His recording of ‘Cod Liver Oil’ became the most requested song on British forces Radio. Hamish was probably the most popular and best loved singer/entertainer during the Scottish folk Revival. He is sadly missed.
