Subject: Lyr Req: Dinnae throw yir grannie off a bus ...
From: Robin

... yet another Glasgow song that doesn't seem to be on DT:

Dinnae throw yir grannie af a bus ...

    ...Ah went doon tae the cellar,
    A leak in the gas pipe tae see.
    I lighted a match fur tae aid me ...
    Oh bring back ma grannie tae me.

Anyone got the full lyrics for this?

Robin

I think you're mixing two songs here. The first, "YE CANNA SHOVE YER GRANNY" is in the DT, sung to the tune of "Comin' Round the Mountain".

The second, which I sang as a kid on the streets of Brooklyn, is a parody of "My Bonny Lies Over the Ocean", and is sung to that tune.A second verse was:

My Bonny had tu-berc-u-lo-sis
My Bonny is missing one lung
My Bonny can cough up an oyster
And rollit around on her tongue.

If you like that one, then look in the DT at "THE JEELIE PIECE SONG (Skyscraper Wean)" - "Oh, ye cannae fling pieces oot a twenty storey flat"

As sung by Robin Hall and Jimmie MacGregor, "Ye Canna Shove Yer Granny" goes like this:

Oh, ye canny shove yer granny off a bus,
Oh, ye canny shove yer granny off a bus,
Oh, ye canny shove yer granny,
Fer she's yer maither's mammy,
Oh, ye canny shove yer granny off a bus,

But,
Ye can shove yer aither granny off a bus,
Ye can shove yer aither granny off a bus,
Ye can shove yer aither granny,
Fer she's yer faither's mammy,
Ye can shove yer aither granny off a bus!

Subject: Lyr Add: YE CANNY KICK AROUND HERE
From: Cluin
Date: 29 Dec 02 - 02:44 AM

Oh, now Annie shoved her Granny off the bus,
Yes, oor Annie shoved her Granny off the bus,
Now when Annie shoved her Granny,
We all thought it uncanny,
But Annie shoved her granny off the bus!


Naw, we just sing the first verse. Then we follow it with (different tune but they go together well):

YE CANNY KICK AROUND HERE

When I was just a laddie, I went and asked my Ma
If I could hae a tanner, tae buy a tanner ba'
The tanner ba' she gave me, and I went out tae play
But everywhere I took it, I heard the Polis say...

(oh well)
Ye canny kick around here; no, ye canny kick around here
Ye canny kick around here; no, ye canny kick around here
Ye canny, canny, canny, ye couldna kick your granny
Ye canny, canny, canny, ye canny kick around here

Well, I played for the Rovers, and I felt very proud
When I rushed up the centre, ye should hae heard the crowd
I'd take a shot on goal and ye'd hear them roar and cheer
But when the ba' went past the post, this is whay ye'd hear...

(they'd yell)
CHORUS

Now my fitba' days are over, and I will play nae mair
I had tae see a doctor, because my leg was sair
He tried some embrocation, and gied ma leg a rub
But then he said "You'd better go and buy yourself a pub"

(because)
CHORUS

Then end by going back to "Kick yer Granny"

Thanks, everyone.

And yes, I was tangling up two separate songs.

i think as i remember it now, the gas quatrain ran:

Ma grannie went doon tae the celler
A leak in the gaspipe tae see
She lighted a match fur tae aid her --
   Oh bring back ma grannie tae me.

I seem to remember a jeely piece chucked out the tenement window joke from a Citizens'pantomime in the sixties.
