hey georgia that was a great wee song heres another wan

In yonder green valley
there lived a wee tally
who gave me some biscuits
to start a wee shoap
and when the shoap started
the wee tally F--rted
and blew all my biscuits
away in the sky biggrin.gif

Over many oceans, over many seas,
Johnny broke a bottle and he blamed it on me,
I told my ma, my ma told my pa
And Johnny got a-lickin'
And he cried like a chicken...singing
1-2-3-a-larry
My husband's name is Harry
If you think it necessAry
Look it ujp in the dictionAry

BARLINNIE


In GLASGOWS fair city there stands a hotel
It takes in the lodgers and all the big swells
Theres bors on the windies
Theres bors on the door
Theres wee widden stairs leading up to a floor
You dont need your spade
Your porridge is made
You just need to rattle your tinny
For as sure as you live you will never be oot
Oh that big mansion hoose called barlinnie

Here's another wan


WEARY LIFE

My its a life its a weary weary life
Its better to be single than to be a merrit wife
When I wis single I used to comb ma hair
But noo am merrit a huvnae time to care
My its a life its a weary weary life
Its better to be single than to be a merrit wife
When I was single a used to have a drink
But noo am merrit it aw goes doon the sink
My its a life its a weary weary life
Its better to be single than to be a merrit wife
When I was single a used to have a jig
But noo am merrit an have myself two kids
One shouts Mammy help me oot the bed
The other shouts Daddy scratch ma widden leg
My its a life its a weary weary life
Its better to be single than to be a merrit wife

The version of Chookie Birdie in our house was:

Wee chookie birdie lo lo lo
Laid an egg on the sill
The window sill began to cry
And wee chookie birdie said bye bye!

Lucy Locket lost her pocket
Kitty Fisher found it
Nothing in it nothing on it
But the ribbon round it

We used to sing this rather depressing one when playing 'balls' on the wall:

The night was dark and the war was over
The battlefield was covered in blood
There I spied a wounded soldier
Lying, dying saying these words
Bless my home in Bonnie Scotland
Bless my wife and only child
Bless the men who fought this battle
La la la la la la la ???????? Can't remember the next bit!

It has been great to remember the old songs! (Why don't wee yins play baws anymore)

We are three wee gallius girls
Sailing oot tae sea
And if you pick the fairest one
Your sure to pick for me

Ah rishy tishy petticoat
Ah rishy tishy p
Ah rishy tishy petticoat
and your the one for me


Err and there is one my Dad's pals used to sing something about

Hilter has only baw
the other is in the Kelvinhall
....... goodness knows what the rest was - but they found it very funny!

Baws songs-

Horsey Horsey do not stop
Just let your feet go clippity clop
let your tail go swish and you wheels go road
Giddy up we home ward bound.

Those magnificant men in their flying machines
They go upperty up up
They go downtry down down
Up, down, flying around
Those magnificant men in their flying machines.

What was the ropes one that had various verse (incl Mary had a little lamb) and ended with

Here come <so and so> sliding on her
Ask no questions,
Tell no lies,
Sinbad was a sailor and he went to paradise.

Sinbad was a sailor,
his father was one too,
Sinbad went to heaven.
his father went to HELLsburgh castle high up on a rock
if you do not like it stick it up your ****tail ginger penny for a glass,
if you do not like it stick it up your ***k no questions,
tell no lies that's why Sinbad sailor went to paradise

Bit crude but funny.
There was a second verse something about a sheepdog - I'll try to remember it. smile.gif

Oh I am so glad I found this site, I know hundreds and hundreds of these...

Ahm a skyscraper wain, ah live on the nineteenth flair
And ahm nae goin oot tae play anymair
Cause since I moved tae Castlemilk Ahm wastin' away
Cause Ahm gettin' wan less meal everyday.

Oh ye cannie fling pieces oot a twenty storey flat
Seven hundred hungry wains will testify tae that.
If it's butter cheese or jeelly, if the breed be plain or pan,
The odds against it reachin' earth are ninety nine tae wan.

Oan the first day my ma flung me a piece of Hovis broon
It went flying oot the windae and went up instead of doon
Now every twenty-seven hoors it comes back intae sight
For ma piece went into orbit, and became a satellite

Chorus

On the second day my ma thought she'd try anither throw
But the Salvation Army Band was playing doon below
Onward Christian Soldiers was the tune they should have played
But the Omp-pah man was playing on a piece on marmalade

Chorus

On the third day ma mother thought that she'd try once again
But it went and hit the pilot of a fast low flying plane
As he scrapped off the window, shoutin' through the intercom
“Those Glasgae Reds have got me, with a breed and jelly bomb”

Chorus

So we're goin' up tae OxFam, tae try and get some aid
And all kids in Castle Milk have join a "piece" brigade
We're marching now to City Hall, demanding civil rights
Like nae mair housing, over piece flinging heights

If it wisnae fur yer wellys where wid ye be
you'd be in the hospital or infirmary
cause you'd have a dose ae the flu or even plurisee
if ye didnae have your feet in your wellys.

wellys they are wonderful
wellys they are swell cause they keep out the water
and they keep in the smell.
and when yur sittin' in a room
you can always tell when some bugger takes aff his wellys.

If it wisnae fur yer wellys where wid ye be
you'd be in the hospital or infirmary
cause you'd have a dose ae the flu or even plurisee
if ye didnae have your feet in your wellys.

Or when your out walkin' in the country wae a bird
and your strollin' over fields just like a farmers herd
and somebody shouts keep aff the grass
and you think how obsurd
and Squelch you find why farmers all wear wellys

If it wisnae fur yer wellys where wid ye be
you'd be in the hospital or infirmary
cause you'd have a dose ae the flu or even plurisee
if ye didnae have your feet in your wellys.

theres fishermen and firemen theres farmers an all
men out diggin' ditches and workin' in the snow
this country it wid grind to a halt and no a thing wid grow
if it wisnae fur the workers in their wellys.

If it wisnae fur yer wellys where wid ye be
you'd be in the hospital or infirmary
cause you'd have a dose ae the flu or even plurisee
if ye didnae have your feet in your wellys.

now Edward Heath and wilson
they hivnae made a hit
they are ruinin' this country
mare than just a bit
if they keep on the way their goin'
we'll all be in the sh!t
so you better git your feet in your wellys.

If it wisnae fur yer wellys where wid ye be
you'd be in the hospital or infirmary
cause you'd have a dose ae the flu or even plurisee
if ye didnae have your feet in your wellys.

link for billy connolly singing it

My mother told me if I was goodie
That she would buy me a rubber dolly
My auntie told her I kissed a soldier
So there's no rubber dolly for me.
