Does anyone remember this (my granny used to sing it I dont know where it came from);

I once had a dear old mother
Who was very kind to me
And when I was in trouble,
She sat me on her knee
One night as I was sleeping
Upon a feather bed
An angel came from heaven
And told me mum was dead

When I woke up in the morning
To see of it was true
And there was poor old mother
Upon the sky so blue
So children adore your parents
And do what you are told
Cos when you lose a mother
You lose a heart of gold!

Do's anyone know these:-

I see you said the blind man
your a lier said the dummy
I won the race said the man with no leg.

Fire Fire in the middle of the ocean
abaouldy man triped over his own hair and
fell down tghe stairs into a bath of Cold
Water and nearly scalded him self

the firebregade came round the corner
on wheels ran over a dead cat
and nearly killed it

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

Hi Agnesb,

Do you have any idea of the history of this song?

Cheers

I am searching for an old song my grandfather used to sing when I was a boy... it went something along the lines of

bonny laddie gang awa'...
there's nae loch ness monster there (ava)?...
for it's only old MacDougal....

it is a rather old song, perhaps the 20s or 30s... has anyone ever heard this before?

This reminds me of
Back to back they faced each other
Drew their swords and shot each other
The blind man saw it
The deaf man heard it
And the man wi nae legs ran to a phonebox
Dialed 666
And an upside Doon ambulance came fleeing roon the corner
And haulf killed a deid cat

Right in the belly
And knocked her Doon the sterr

My dad used to sing to me...

"Wee bad boy, he's no braw
He's got a face like a fitba baw
But never mind, his mother's is worse
She's got a face like a baw that's burst!"

I remember these:

Oor wee schools, the best wee school

The best wee school in Glesga

The only thing aboot it is the baldy heided maister

He goes tae the pub oan a Seterday night

He goes tae the church oan a Sunday

Tae pray tae God tae gie him strength

Tae belt the weans oan Monday



Wee Sam, a piece n Jam
Went tae London in a pram
The pram broke Whit a joke
Wee Sam, a piece n jam
