"Ag pleez daddy, won't you take me to the draaiv-in..."

For some or other unkown reason, I have this "song" in my head... ?!?!!

The problem is, I don't actually know the words to it, and I am probably going to go insane if I keep singing the first verse over and over again in my head.

Please help me to stop the insanity :D Does anybody know the words to this song?
:D

Heh heh heh... Thank you Tara: :D I can sleep peacefully tonight...


"Ag pleez deddy won't you take us to the drive-in
All six, seven of us, eight, nine, ten
We wanna see a flick about
Tarzan and the Ape-men
And when the show is over you can bring us back again

Chorus:
Popcorn, chewing gum, peanuts and bubble gum
Ice cream, candy floss and Eskimo Pie
Ag deddy how we miss
Nigger balls and liquorice
Pepsi Cola, ginger beer
and Canada Dry

Ag pleez deddy won't you take us to the fun-fair
We wanna have a ride on the bumper-cars
We'll buy a stick of candy floss
And eat it on the Octopus
Then we'll take the rocket ship that goes to Mars

Chorus

Ag pleez Deddy won't you take us to the wrestling
We wanna see an ou called Sky Hi Lee
When he fights Willie Liebenberg
There's gonna be a murder
'Cos Willie's gonna donner that blerrie yankee

Chorus

Ag pleez deddy won't you take us off to Durban
It's only eight hours in the Chevrolet
There's spans of sea and sand and sun
And fish in the aquarium
That's a lekker place for a holiday

Chorus

Ag Pleeeeeez Deddy - VOETSEK!

Ag sies deddy if we can't kraak to bioscope
Or go off to Durban, life's a henguva bore
If you won't take us to the zoo
Then what the heck else can we do
But go on out and **** all the outjies next door

Chorus

Written in 1962 and originally called Ballad of the Southern Suburbs, this song was banned (as were all of Jeremy Taylor's works) in South Africa , but managed to sell 75,000 and reach No. 1 on the charts thanks to LM Radio in Mozambique.

You'll probably find that it had a radio ban (and possibly play ban).

A song that has a radio ban may not be played on the airwaves but is allowed to be played in disco's and private functions. An example of this was Eddy Grant's "Gimme Hope Jo'anna"

A song with a play ban is not allowed to be played in public or at private functions.

A banned song is not allowed to be sold though I think it may be sold on import lp's (like The Specials were in the early 80's) whereas a totally banned song may not be imported - Like Marianne Faithfull's "Broken English" lp.

Sorry Joan, I should have enlarged on what I said. Jangar is quite right, it was a Radio ban. But of course they couldn't ban good old LM radio could they? I've been trying to rack my brains to remember the chap who was synonymous with LM radio back then. I remember when he retired from it and we were all in tears.

No, it wasn't David Davies. The chap I am thinking of had wavy brown hair, was very debonair with a roughish talking voice and he had oh such a way with the girls! :haha: ( Well, he thought he did anyway) ;)

Here are the rest of the presenters and I am very loathe to say that I was thinking of John Berks who, of course, became quite a big name on 702.

John Berks, Gary Edwards, Darryl Jooste, Evelyn Martin, Barry OÂ’Donnahue and Reg de Beer.

I did not know John Berks was on LM radio, I do remember Evelyn Martin with her smooth voice.

BTW....methinks we are hijacking a thread?????? :D

Good point Joan!

Let's ask Ed, it's his thread. I prefer to think of it as evolving, but of course if Ed objects then I think we should stop. Or start a new thread? :D or maybe Admin could split it if they think it necessary?

Yoo Hoo Admin?! :lovebuzz:

Hej Joan and Tara,

Personally I feel that this thread has not been hi-jacked but has evolved as Tara says in the post after the one I quote. Had you gone off the topic of music and started talking about the upcoming braai or your kids I am sure it would have been considered as a hi-jack and possibly edited.

So unless Edmonsta objects I'd like to see this thread remain as it is :)

One of you could however start a thread reminiscing about old RJ's (Radio Jocks) :D (I've not seen any posts in this section for a few hours so I don't know if someone has already started such a thread, I'd only just come online when a mail notice of a PM pointed me to this thread)

Here are the lyrics for Valarie Millers version:

Oh please daddy won't you take us to Inanda
All six, seven, of us. eight, nine, ten...
The Horsey boys will all be there
The Goodman brothers what a pair
and we can get our picure on the social page again...

Champagne, caviar, polo and Jaguars
Garden parties, debutants and French liquer
Life so boring for a gal who cannot join the social world
With first nights, dimple Hague and gowned by Dior

Oh please daddy won't you fly us of to London
First class of course in the 707
we're sure sure to make the Margret set
find some titled boyfriend yet
To dance at the Savoy will be positively Heaven

Champagne, caviar, polo and Jaguars
Garden parties, debutants and French liquer
Life so boring for a gal who cannot join the social world
With first nights, dimple Hague and gowned by Dior

Oh please daddy let's go skiing at Saint Morits
with Mary Lou and you know who and the upper 10
If we don't break our arms and necks we're sure to charm the other sex
and when the season's over we'll go Boeing back again

Champagne, caviar, polo and Jaguars
Graden parties, debutants and French liquer
Life so boring for a gal who cannot join the social world
With first nights, dimple Hague and gowned by Dior

Oh please daddy if we can't go off to London
or spend a month in Paris when the weather's fine
if we can't induldge in winter sports
or cruise around some foreign ports
won't you buy me just a teenie weenie diamond mine

Champagne, caviar, polo and Jaguars
Garden parties, debutants and French liquer
Life so boring for a gal who cannot join the social world
With first nights, dimple Hague and gowned by Dior

Oh please daddy...


Voertsek (- the r) !!!!!!


Ag sies Koekie
just cut out all that nagging
pasop now hey, just remember I'm your pa
I'm sommer fed up with your cheek
and that fancy way you speak
That blerrie school that finished you has finished you klaar

Popcorn chewing gum (chewing gum)
Peanuts and bubblegum (bubblegum)
Ice cream, candy floss (candy floss) and eskimo pie

Ag Daddy how we miss nigger balls, liquorice
pepsi cola, ginger beer and canada dry

Just right click on the link (title) between the two green arrows pointing downwards and choose "save target as". The "save target as" is the option / wording for Google Chrome, not sure what it's called in Firefox or I.E. but it'll be somthing similar.

Give me a shout if it doesn't work. :)
