    How about Aloutte? I can give you all the versus if you like. It's become one of our "anthems"! Or there's the rude version of Old MacDonald, the clean version of Ilkley Moor Ba'ht at? Loads of versus and loads of room for displaying "interesting" harmonies!

    We did once try to sing Ilkley Moor, but got told off by our resident Yorkshireman who came down the back of the bus and gave us a lesson in how to sing it "properly"...

    I liked that rude song about Yogi Bear, but I think Lil and Doug will tell us off again for corrupting Matty...

    Are there any words to Cock Up Your Beaver? I would search for it myself but I worry that our IT department will shut me down...

    My Best Bus Songs:
    Delilah (Tom Jones)
    The Day We Went to Bangor (or Blackpool)
    Red Fly The Banners-O
    Livin' Next Door to Alice (Macc Lads)
    Bohemian Rhapsody
    Hymn tunes in part-harmony
    I Get Knocked Down (Chumbawumba)
    Bad Bad Leroy Brown
    American Pie (Don Maclean)

    And for when you've lost appallingly, teh theme from M*A*S*H (Suicide is Painless)...

    Sometimes Bon Jovi or a Queen concert gets put in the DVD player on the bus and then everybody starts singing the songs, (usually after a few glasses of liquid refreshments tho!)

    Cant beat Livin' on a Prayer, tho some of the younger 1s havent heard of Bon Jovi yet!! :eek:

    Barnicle Bill, the Salior

    Everybody sing their own parts to the test piece, (sometimes sounds better than how you've actually played it but depends on the result and how much drink you've had!!)

    Or if your that desperate, try "the front of the bus cany sing, cany sing....."

    or "Stop the bus, I need a wee, wee, stop the bus..."

    sorry! ;)

    Seek and thee shall find

    Johnie lad, cock up your Beaver, Robert Burns

    When first my brave Johnie lad came to this town,
    He had a blue bonnet that wanted the crown;
    But now he has gotten a hat and a feather,
    Hey, brave Johnie lad, cock up your beaver!

    Cock up your beaver, and cock it fu' sprush,
    We'll over the border, and gie them a brush;
    There's somebody there we'll teach better behaviour,
    Hey, brave Johnie lad, cock up your beaver!
