After the Ball Parody

An earlier post about a parody of a popular song brought in a number of responses. Gavin Atkin (now of Marden, Kent) sent me this one, which he remembers his father singing:

After the ball was over
She lay on the sofa and sighed
Put her false teeth in salt water
And took out her lovely glass eye
Propped up her leg in the corner
And hung up her wig on the door
And the rest of her went to by-byes
After the ball!

I've also been told that this was current in Herts/Cambridgeshire in the late 1970s/early 1980s. (I'll post the variant if I can get it taken down accurately).

I never tire of these parodies, and I also never tire of body-part songs, so expect more (and feel free to send me more).
