    When i was younger my dad used to have all sorts of daft songs he would sing, usually about food. These are a few of them.......

    "They're long and green and they look obscene and they always have me burpin, but i must confess what i like best is a great big pickled gerkin."

    "smack your chops, lick your lips, have a lovely bad of (blows rasberry) chipsticks."

    "Trebor mints are a minty bit stronger, stick em up yer bum and they last a bit longer"

    It has always amused me. Anyone else got a mad dad with daft songs??

    I remember two, one was a song, the other just a verse (perhaps someone's set it a tune at some time....

    The song was:
    "My mom told me not to put beans in my ears, beans in my ears,beans in my ears [repeat]"

    The verse:
    I eat my pease with honey
    I've done it all my life
    You may think that sounds funny
    but it keeps 'em on my knife!

    Can't help but grin recalling it.

    Steve used to entertain the kids in the car by making up silly songs. He'd get them to choose 3 words and would make a song using them.

    Hang on, what am I saying "used to". They still make up silly songs now! Big load of kids. Vicki has a couple of corkers. :rolleyes:

    My dear old grandad had loads, most of which are lost to my memory.
    The following, preferrably sung in an impenetrable Cork accent:
    "We're off, we're off
    We're off in a motor-car,
    Seventy cops are after us
    And we don't know where we are."
    was one we always had to sing when we went anywhere in the car with him. There was another one about a turkey, maybe Jessop-Smythe will remember that one better?

    And the second verse continues thus.....

    We turned round the corner eating apple pies
    The 70 cops that were after us,
    We threw it in their eyes!
    (I really don't know why that suddenly came back to me!)

    Yeah, well now you know why in Monty Python's Meaning of Life, Mr Creosote was reluctant for a final 'waffer thin mint'! ;)

    Erm...you might want to re-phrase that! :|

    Indeed, but for some reason all the songs I remember him singing were in an impenetrable Cork accent. Do you remember the turkey song or was it just me?
    (At least someone else remembers the cop song, hoorah!)
