R AND R




Roll Me Over in the Clover

   "Roll Me Over in the Clover" was a randy little number that was hugely popular in England in 1944. The lyrics, for the time, were extremely racy and the subject matter was, well, sex.

   Here is one version of the lyrics (from Cantaria, an online library of bardic songs):

We've tried it once or twice
And found it rather nice

Chorus:
Roll me over lay me down and do it again
Roll me over in the clover, roll me over lay me down and do it again

Chorus

Oh this is number one
And the fun has just begun

Chorus

Oh this is number two,
Down in front he's comin through

Chorus

Oh this is number three
And his hand is on me knee

Chorus

Oh this is number four
And he's been there twice before

Chorus

Oh this is number five
I'm surprised I'm still alive

Chorus

Oh this is number six,
And he's got me doin tricks

Chorus

Well this is number seven,
And he took me straight to heaven

Chorus

Oh this is number eight,
He bent me o'er the garden gate

Chorus

Oh this is number nine,
And the baby's doin fine

Chorus

Oh this is number ten,
And when he's through we'll do it again

Chorus

Oh this is number eleven
and it's just like number seven

   Listen to one verse and chorus of the version above,performed by the The Sassy Lassies. (In RealAudio format.)

   Here is another version of the lyrics, reprinted from "Songs from the Front & Rear: Canadian Servicemen's Songs of the Second World War" (Anthony Hopkins, published by Hurtig, Edmonton, 1979):

Now, this is number one
And the fun has just begun.
Roll me over, lay me down,
And do it again.

[CHORUS]
Roll me over, in the clover,
Roll me over, lay me down,
And do it again.

Now, this is number two,
And he's got me in a stew.
Roll me over, lay me down,
And do it again.

[CHORUS]

Now, this is number three,
And his hand is on my knee.
Roll me over, lay me down,
And do it again.

[CHORUS]

Now, this is number four,
And he's got me on the floor.
Roll me over, lay me down,
And do it again.

[CHORUS]

Now, this is number five,
And his hand is on my thigh.
Roll me over, lay me down,
And do it again.

[CHORUS]

Now, this is number six,
And he's got me in a fix.
Roll me over, lay me down,
And do it again.

[CHORUS]

Now, this is number seven,
And it's just like being in heaven.
Roll me over, lay me down,
And do it again.

[CHORUS]

Now, this is number eight,
And the doctor's at the gate.
Roll me over, lay me down,
And do it again.

[CHORUS]

Now, this is number nine,
And the twins are doing fine.
Roll me over, lay me down,
And do it again.

[CHORUS]

Now, this is number ten,
And he's started once again.
Roll me over, lay me down,
And do it again.
