Does anyone else remember this song?

'The egg went rolling down the hill, parlez vous,
The egg went rolling down the hill, parlez vous,
The egg went rolling down the hill ??????????? Inky binky parlez vous.

The egg went rolling down the street, parlez vous,
The egg went rolling down the street, parlez vous,
The egg went rolling down the street, knocked a copper off his feet,
Inky binky parlez vous.

And so on with lots of funny verses.

My mum's friend used to song it to me when I was little but can't find anything about it online.

I'm starting to think I made it up.

Never heard it sung about an egg, I only know the disgusting wartime trenches version about German officers and shagging.

Got slapped legs from Mater for being Rude.

Replace the 'egg' with 'fart' and that was the version we had..

The fart went rolling down his spine parlez vous
The fart went rolling down his spine parlez vous
The fart went rolling down his spine, knocked his goolies out of line,
Inky pinky parlez vous

So it's a song with many different made up lyrics?

My mum's friend must've been dying to sing a rude version but kept it sweetly about an egg for me grin

Definitely a fart, not an egg! Was egg the polite version?!

It was a bomb

The bomb went rolling down the street and knocked a copper off his feet

The copper got out his rusty whistle, the bomb went rolling onto Bristol

The people of Bristol were out at a dance, the bomb went rolling onto France

The people of France were not at home, the bomb went rolling onto Rome

Julius ceasar was drinking gin, he opened his gob and the bomb went in

The bomb exploded in julius ceasar and that was the end of the roman geezer

Inky pinky parlez vous-ooo-oo

Google 'inky pinky parlez vous' and you'll find several versions.

The fart which missed the loo and went rolling down the hill was the one i know...

Our version was a fart, not an egg, even though I've often thought that made no sense!
grin
The verses as I remember them from the Copper kicking the fart from here to Bristol.....
Bristol team were playing at home, kicked the fart from here to Rome...........
Julius Caesar drinking gin, opened his mouth and the fart flew in...........
The fart went rolling down his tongue, knocked his tonsils to his bum.........

grin
What a bizarre organ the brain is that it remembers this kind of shite from 30 odd years ago but not where I put my car keys earlier today

I only know the dirty version - 3 German Officers crossed the Rhine blush

Piscivorus Fri 07-Feb-14 00:12:36

I've never heard any of those versions but knew it as:
"Mademosielle from Armentieres, parlez vous
Mademosielle from Armentieres, parlez vous
Mademosielle from Armentieres, hasn't been kissed for fifty years
Inky pinky parlez vous"

I knew it was a wartime song but have no idea of anything more than that or any disgusting connotations of it
