I've never heard it before but god, it's hilarious grin

DS came back from school singing it and at first I thought his teacher must be quite odd, but it appears to be an actual song grin

Where have you been? Also on that vein, the worm song.

PaleBlueWatch Sat 17-Feb-18 19:42:04

Outer space, I think. DH was most disgusted that I don't know it.

What's the worm song?

Fekko Sat 17-Feb-18 19:45:00

I’m glad you asked...

Nobody likes me everybody hates me
I think I'll away and eat worms,
Big fat juicy ones, wee thin skinny ones
See how they wiggle and squirm
You bite off the heads, and you suck out the juice
And then throw the skins away,
Nobody knows how I can live on works three times a day

Oh ya canny push ya granny off a bus,
Oh ya canny push ye granny off a bus,
Oh ya canny push ya granny coz she's ya
Mammie's mammy.
Ya canny push ya granny off a bus.

My dd used to sing this in school. Brought back memories.

Did she get to the 'you can shove your other granny of the bus' verse?

Awwlookatmybabyspider Sat 17-Feb-18 19:47:09

OMG. The worm song

PaleBlueWatch Sat 17-Feb-18 19:49:04

I'm not as keen on the worms shock

Yes. Daddy's mammy can be shoved off the bus, but not mammy's mammy grin grin grin

Oh ye canny fling pieces oot a twenty storey flat
Seven hundred hungry weans will testify tae that
If it’s butter, cheese or jeely, if the breed be plain or pan
The odds against it reachin earth are ninety nine tae waaaaaaan

Grew up singing this. Strangely it was my dad who taught it to me.

Olddear Sat 17-Feb-18 19:51:36

Ye can shove yer other granny aff the bus
Ye can shove yer other granny aff the bus
Ye can shove yer other granny CIA she's yer
Daddy's mammy
Ye can shove yer other granny aff the bus!

Fekko Sat 17-Feb-18 19:51:45

Haha I remember that one too!

Olddear Sat 17-Feb-18 19:52:07

Not CIA!! Cos!!!!!

OP you need to get yourself a singing kettle dvd, im fond of 'the world must be coming to and end' and 'the wee kirkcubright centipede'. class.

ImperfectTents Sat 17-Feb-18 19:52:36

Should be the mumsnet official anthem

Snowydaysarehere Sat 17-Feb-18 19:54:40

Earl - the singing kettle is the best thing ever!

itsmeimcathyivecomehome Sat 17-Feb-18 19:55:30

Two of my friends regularly sing the theme tune to "supergran" and nearly wet themselves laughing every time.

They're 44.

A new twist on the MIL threads shock grin

InfiniteCurve Sat 17-Feb-18 19:57:14

Nobody likes me,everybody hates me,
I'm going down the garden to eat worms.
Long thin slimy ones,short fat fuzzy ones,
Gooey gooey gooey gooey worms!
Now the long thin slimy ones slide down easily,
the short fat fuzzy ones stick.....
The short fat fuzzy ones stick in your teeth
And the juice goes (slurpy sucky noise through teeth x3 grin)
Soooooo you cut off the heads and you cut off the tails andd you throw the skins away,
And nobody knows how I survive on a hundred worms a day!
Kent,circa 1969......

ImperfectTents Sat 17-Feb-18 19:58:03

Forget going no contact, just shove the fucker off the bus

DannyLaRuesBestFrock Sat 17-Feb-18 20:02:57

No ye cannae go NC with the MIL
No ye cannae go NC with the MIL
No ye cannae go NC
The DH will say No Way
No ye cannae go NC with the MIL

DannyLaRuesBestFrock Sat 17-Feb-18 20:06:06

That doesn't even rhyme does it 😄


Cookiefiend Sat 17-Feb-18 20:07:26

The second verse of the worms song is best though...

Everybody loves me, nobody hates me
I really shouldn't have eaten those worms.
Up comes the first worm, up comes the second worm see how they squiggle and squirm.

If you have Alexa it will play a singing kettle mix. Also love the train to Glasgow.

In my family's case it's daddy's mammy you cannae shove off a bus, cos she's too posh to take one!

GrannyGrissle Sat 17-Feb-18 21:47:34

DM DOES NOT approve of this song nor one that starts 'Granny's in the cellar, i'm surprised you cannae smell her...' (DP are Scotish).
