Colonel Bogey March (1914) / Hitler Has Only Got One Ball (1939) / Charel ! (1955) / March From The River Kwai (1957) / Hello, Le Soleil Brille (1958)


Composed in 1914 by Kenneth J. Alford (alias for Frederick Joseph Ricketts)
published by Hawkes & Son, London

Lieutenant Frederick Ricketts was bandmaster for the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, and it is said he composed "Colonel Bogey" after playing golf with the colonel of his regiment at Fort St George in Scotland, where the regiment was based. Instead of shouting "Fore!", his commanding officer would loudly whistle two notes to those playing ahead. Ricketts added further notes and the tune was composed.
Since at that time service personnel were not encouraged to have professional lives outside the armed forces, Ricketts published "Colonel Bogey" and his other compositions under the pseudonym Kenneth Alford.

In fact there was no "real" Colonel Bogey. It was apparently the nick-name of the colonel with whom Lt. Ricketts played golf.
The name "Colonel Bogey" began in the later 19th century as the imaginary "standard opponent" of the Colonel Bogey scoring system, and by Edwardian times the Colonel had been adopted by the golfing world as the presiding spirit of the course.
Edwardian golfers on both sides of the Atlantic often played matches against "Colonel Bogey". Bogey is now a golfing term meaning "one over par".

At the start of World War II, "Colonel Bogey" became part of the British way of life when the tune was set to a popular song: "Hitler Has Only Got One Ball". Originally: "Göring Has Only Got One Ball" after the Luftwaffe leader suffered a grievous groin injury, but later reworded to suit the popular taste, with the tune becoming an unofficial national anthem to rudeness.

Bette Midler sang the song in the 1980 filmed version of her show, Divine Madness.

"Colonel Bogey" was used to great effect in the movie "The Bridge on the River Kwai"

The Colonel Bogey strain was accompanied by a counter-melody using the same chord progressions, then continued with film composer Malcolm Arnold's own composition, "The River Kwai March", played by the off-screen orchestra taking over from the whistlers, though Arnold's march was not heard in completion on the soundtrack.

LYRICS:

Kleine Jantje kreeg een vlieger
O, wat was dat ventje blij
Vader zei: ”t is morgen zondag
En dan gaan we naar de wei.
Omdat jij zo’n mooi rapportje
Van de meester hebt gehad,
Gaan we morgen met de vlieger
Fijn naar buiten, lieve schat.’

Refrein:
Dan gaat hij hoger, altijd hoger
Ik laat hem vliegen steeds maar weer.
Misschien komt hij wel in den Hemel
Heel hoog bij onzen lieven Heer.

Uren lag het ventje wakker
In z’n hoofdje rijpt een plan
Kinderlijk was het berekend
Eindelijk dacht hij: ‘Ja, dat kan’
En toen vader ‘s morgens opstond
Was z’n jongen al gekleed
En hij juigte bij ‘t vooruitzicht
Wat of straks de vlieger deed

Refrein

Vader keek of alles goed was
En daar zag hij aan den staart
Door een kinderhand beschreven
Goudversierde ansichtkaart
En met tranen in de ogen
Las hij: ‘Allerliefste moe,
‘k Stuur u voortaan iedere zondag
Een ansicht naar den Hemel toe

Refrein

LYRICS:

Jantje was een kleine kleuter, enigst kindje, teer verwend.
En op zeek’re dag zei moeder: “Hoor eens even lieve vent.
Als je zoet bent, komt er spoedig ’n zusje of een broertje bij.”
Nou dat was wat voor ons Jantje en het ventje zei toen blij
Wanneer er een klein zusje kwam, kreeg zij van mij wat moois, zeg mam.

Refrein
Dan gaat mijn spaarpot open, dan krijgt die schattebout
Een boeketje witte rozen, waar mam ook zo van houdt.

Toen de ooievaar verwacht werd, moest kleine Jan met tante mee.
En hij was daar voor een nachtje nu de vroolijke logé.
Voor het geld uit Jantjes spaarpot, alles wel tien keer nageteld,
was er in een bloemenwinkel gauw een lief boeket besteld.
En ’s nachts in bed, nog in zijn slaap, zei in zijn droom die lieve knaap

Refrein

De and're morgen bij zijn thuiskomst zei kleine Jan: "Wat vreemd vandaag
Kijk eens tante, de gordijnen zijn nog helemaal omlaag"
Snikkend sprak zijn vader: "Jantje nou heb je geen moesje meer
Zij ging vannacht met kleine zusje weg naar onze Lieve Heer"
En zachtjes legde Jan 't boeket aan het voeteneind op moeders bed

Refrein
En wenend zei toen Jantje ik bracht witte rozen mee.
Lieve mam, hier lief klein zusje, die zijn nu voor jullie twee.

Buzz Buzz Buzz (1945)


"Buzz-Buzz-Buzz" is a song written by John Gray and Bobby Day and performed by The Hollywood Flames. The lead vocals were by Earl Nelson, later of Bob & Earl. It reached #5 on the US R&B chart and #11 on the Billboard pop chart in 1957.
But "Buzz-Buzz-Buzz" is in fact a clever rewrite of a song from 1945 (written by Alice D. Simms, Al Trace and Jimmie Lunceford) with the same title: "Buzz-Buzz-Buzz".

The hymn was parodied by Joe Hill in 1906 as "The Preacher and the Slave", in which the phrase "pie in the sky" was coined as a satirical comment on the Christian conception of heavenly reward.
