In a scottish accent

As I was walking doon the road
I saw a coo, a bull by goad!

Possibly the great McGonnigal but I couldn't swear to it.

As I was going by St Pauls
A woman grabbed me by the elbow
She said you look a man of pluck
Come inside and have a sandwich
There's some for a tanner and some for a bob
It all depends on the size of your sandwich

Doesn't realy rhyme very well does it?

Mmmmmm.

Between two hunks of bread.

i wandered lonely, drunk and proud
all floating by on valium pills
when all at once i thought out loud
and told the priest he made me ill.
besides that mate
beneath my knees
your frantic fumblings smell of cheese..

incontinent as his startled mind
that pickled up my silky stays
he retched in never ending whine
inciting me to drink and pay.
Ten thousand downed I at a glance
tossing the glasses at his pants.

he buckled over, screamed hooray
i tipped the oily knave in ghee
he said, "no thanks, I'm really gay"
and offered me a cup of tea.
My eyes were glazed, my mind distraught
for Brother Kev was such a sort.

Now oft, when in the vault I lie
in vacant or offensive mood
I know that brother Kev's a spy
for the Mafia or Rodney Rude
and then my heart with pleasure fills
and sublimates the daffy pills..

I'll hold your hand in mine dear,
I'll press it to my lips
And take a healthy bite from
Your dainty fingertips.

My joy would be complete, dear
If you were only here,
But still I have your hand as
A precious souvenir.

The night you died I cut it off
I really don't know why
For now each time I kiss it
I get bloodstains on my tie

I'm sorry now I killed you
Our love was something fine
And 'till they come to get me
I will hold your hand in mine

The best silly rhyme I know of was written by John Bellairs.

Swaddled in Byzantine
Pearl seeded robes,
Put out the eyes
Of his iconophical
Prelate, for piercing
His priestly ear lobes.

Two real classics from Spike Milligan:

The boy stood on the burning deck
Whence all but he had fled
Twit.

I must go down to the sea again
To the lonely sea and the sky
I left my shoes and socks down there, I wonder if they're dry?

And another;

Little Miss Muffet
Sat on her tuffet
Eating her Irish stew
Along came a spider and sat down beside her
And so she ate him up too.

As I woke one morning, when all sweet things are born,
A robin perched upon my sill,
To signal the coming morn,
He was so sweet and gentle and softly did he sing,
Sweet thoughts of love and happiness into my heart did spring,
He sang his song so gently....then as he paused a lull,
I quickly closed the window, and crushed his fucking skull.

The boy stood on the burning deck
His arse against the mast
He swore he would not move an inch
Till Montagu had passed
But Monty was a crafty man
He threw the boy a lighter
And as he bent to pick it up
He stuck it up his ******

This disgusting fragment has been around for over 50 years and the Montagu referred to was the then Lord Montagu who in 1954 was convicted along with at least 2 others of having homosexual relations with a young lad in an outbuilding on the family estate.

a dirhinous camel in Muharbia manic
with a woman was wandering in predictable panic
she was writing athesis on chamelon's cholic
but the ship of the desert was a sly alcoholic
He sucked Hashimayu to riddle his brains
and passed out beneath her berating the rains.
She needed some transport and went up Azrafa
she got it with minties and a sticky red jaffa
she rode past a minister with her bouncing giraffe
her nostrils were sinister and her comments a gaffe
"You meander steatopygously whither and thither
on a creature that elongates and undulates hither,
this life in the desert is a runcible rort
but the locals could tsujigirl such a cerebral sort"
He gazed at chameleons as she gave them quick-eze
in a slithered surrender he fell to his knees
with a barrage of groans about picking a box
he became Zoanthropic and dived for her socks
and rolling his eyeballs he coiled round her waisr
"You'll never thelypthorise me" she snapped with distate,
"You're a politician, not a lizard, go and write a new book"
she shuddered and ran as his tongue went kershlook
she anavanjeared him before he could leap
her aim was as sharp as his fervour was deep
the sounds of the desert blow in timeless ballet
O'er the skeletal charade of his shameless delay
She smiled as she gathered the scattered quick-eze
and road the giraffe with perambular ease
into the sunset and its apricot tones
never thinking to look back at poor Barry Jones...

Mary had a little lamb
Was given her to keep
It followed her around until
It died from lack of sleep.


Mary had a little lamb
With mint sauce, baked potatoes, peas and gravy.....


The boy stood in the banquet hall
When all but he had fled
He'd finished off the cakes and jam
And nearly done the bread.

"This is my thirteenth cup of tea!"
He cried in accents wild
"Just one more crust, before I ****"
(He was a vulgar child)

There came a burst of thunder sound
The boy, oh where was he?
Just ask the maids who swept him up
All cakes - and jam - and tea.

And stamped on her head.

No taller than the grass.
I'd climb up all the big oak trees,
And slide down on my hands and knees!
Yes it rhymes!

The cuckoo is a pretty bird,
As she sits in the grass.
With her wings by her side
and her head under them.
And in this position,
She can only say...."twit"

With a beak full of feathers.

The Pheasant Plucker's Song

Me husband is a keeper, he's a very busy man,
I try to understand him and I help him all I can,
But sometimes of an evening I feel a trifle dim,
All alone and plucking pheasants when I'd rather pluck with him.

I'm not the pheasant plucker,
I'm the pheasant plucker's mate
And I'm only plucking pheasants
Cause the pheasant plucker's late.

I'm not good at plucking pheasants, pheasant plucking I get stuck,
Though some peasants find it pleasant I'd much rather pluck a duck,
Oh, but plucking geese is gorgeous, I can pluck a goose with ease
But plucking pheasants is sheer torture, for they haven't any grease.

I'm not the pheasant plucker,
He has gone out on the tiles,
He only plucked one pheasant
And I'm sitting here with piles.

You have to pluck them fresh, if they're fresh it's not unpleasant,
I knew a man in Dunstable, could pluck a frozen pheasant.
They say the village constable has pheasant plucking sessions
With the vicar of a Sunday 'tween the first and second lessons.

I'm not the pheasant plucker,
I'm the pheasant plucker's son,
And I'm only plucking pheasants
Till the pheasant pluckers come.

My good friend Godfrey's most adept, he's really got the knack,
He likes to have a pheasant plucked before he hits the sack.
I try and lend a helping hand, I gather up the feathers,
It's really all this pheasant plucking keeps us here together.

I'm not the pheasant plucker,
I'm the pheasant plucker's friend,
And I'm only plucking pheasants
As a means unto an end.

Me husband's in the woods all day, a-banging with his gun,
If he could hear me heartfelt cries, then surely he would run,
For I've fluff in all me crannies and there's feathers up me nose,
And I'm itchin' in the kitchen' from me head down to me toes.

I'm not the pheasant plucker,
I'm the pheasant plucker's wife,
And when we pluck together
It's a pheasant plucking life!

The National Health Cow

I strolled into a farmyard
When no-one was about
Treading past the troubles
I raised my head to shout.

"Come out the Cow with glasses,"
I called and rolled my eye.
It ambled up toward me,
I milked it with a sigh.

"You're just in time" the cow said,
Its eyes were all aglaze,
"I'm feeling like an elephant,
I aren't been milked for days."

"Why is this?" I asked it,
tugging at its throttles.
"I don't know why, perhaps it's 'cause
MY milk comes out in bottles."

"That's handy for the government,"
I thought, and in a tick
the cow fell dead all sudden
(I'd smashed it with a brick).

I thought this was for silly rhymes.

There are some nice ones in Monty Python and the Holy Grail, in the Camelot Song.

Arthur: Knights, I bid you welcome to your new home. Let us ride... to CAMELOT!

CUT to Knights in castle
Knights (singing):

We're knights of the round table,
we dance whene're we're able.
We do routines, and border scenes,
with footwork imp-e-cable;
We dine well here in Camelot,
we eat ham and jam and spamalot.

We're knights of the round table,
our shows are for-mid-able
Though many times, we're given rhymes,
that are quite un-sing-able
We're not so bad in Camelot,
we sing from the Dia-phragm alot!
Though we're tough and able,
Quite in-de-fa-ti-gable,

Between our quests, we seek incest
and impersonate Clark Gable,
It's a busy life in Camelot:
I have to push the pram-a-lot!

CUT back to
Arthur: On second thought, let's not go to Camelot. It is a silly place.

There was a man sat on a hill,
If he's not gone he's there yet.


I wandered lonely as a clod
Picking up old rags and bottles,
When on the lonely road I plod
I saw a host of axolotls.
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
A sight to make a man's blood freeze.

Some had handles, some were plain-
they were orange, pink, and green, in the main.
My hair stood up, my blood ran cold.
I fled with fear upon my soul.
I find my solace now in bottles,
and I forget them axolotls.

The dog sat in the fog
The Cat sat on the mat
The mouse sat in the house......
Well, fancy that!

They walked down the lane together
The sky was covered in stars
They reached the gate in silence
And for her, he opened the bars.....
She neither smiled, not thanked him
For that, she knew not how
For he was only a farmer's son
And she was a jersy cow!

Mrs Brown went to town
With her knickers upside down
She did a fart behind a cart
And paralysed the pony
The cart went rolling down the street
And knocked a copper off his feet
Old Tom Brown was having a swim.......
He openeds his Gob and the fart went in.

(for the Americans ..... a copper is a policeman and a gob is a mouth.)

Not last night but the night before
Three little tom cats came knocking at the door
One had a fiddle
One had a drum
And the third had a pancake stuck to his bum.

Mary had a little sheep
With that sheep she went to sleep
The sheep turned out to be a ram.........
Mary had a little lamb!

..and from MY younger days.

"How odd of God
To choose the Jews"

"But not so odd
As those who choose
A Jewish God,
Yet spurn the Jews."

Mary had a little skirt
with splits right up the sides
and every time that Mary walked
the boys could see her Thighs
Mary had another skirt
twas split right up the front
but she didn't wear that one very often


Georgie porgie pudding and pie
kissed the girls and made them cry
when the boys came out to play
he kissed them too cause he is gay

Jack and Jill
Went up the hill
to have some hanky panky.
Silly Jill forgot her pill
And now there's little Franky

When I was a teenager, I worked for a summer on a construction site.
Humour was everywhere, though some was not that funny, and at times more crude than funny. Most were not remembered

Sometimes the humour made no sense at all. I recall one senseless rhyme I heard recited by a male worker walking by that I never forgotm for some odd reason: (maybe it was the humourous thought of guys making a jingling sound as they walked by):

"The hair grew so thick
between my ***hole and +++ck
that my balls wouldn't jingle nomore"

Jack and Jill went up the hill.
To fetch a pail of water,
Jill came down with half a crown,
But not for carrying water.

Maybe here before, but:


Little Miss Muffet sat on a tuffet
Eating her curds and whey,
Along came a spider,
Who sat down beside her
And said, "what's in the bowl bitch"?

Little Boy Blue, come blow up your horn -
The sheeps in the meadow, the cows in the corn.
Where's the little boy who looks after the sheep ?
He's under the haystack shagging BoPeep.

I never understood this one (below).
Now why in the world would anyone want
to bite such a lovely thing, a bird?

""The best thing I ever bit
The best thing it was a tit""

One I remember from many years ago (when I was at sea) If some one came in to the mess room after being on deck and said
" Its cold"
the deck crew would recite, in chorus, with suitable solemnity
" As cold as a frog in an ice-bound pool
as cold as the tip of an Eskimos tool
as cold as Charity, and thats Fuckin chilly
but it isn't as cold as our little Willie
'cos he's dead
Poor Bastard!"

The boy stood on the burning deck
picking his nose like mad
he rolled it into little balls
and threw it at his Dad.

My uncle Jack sat in the dock,
Picking his nose like fury,
Rolling it up in little balls,
And flicking it at the jury.

amen, Dave H

IF you are too lazy busy to read the entire thread, just hit "ctrl F" and enter a key word from your intended post, then go F3,F3,F3 to see if it has already been posted. Some of these items have been posted 3-4 times already.

(and I DO wonder why 'silly' to some means only naughty...)

Micca: Aliter:

I'm as cool as the tip of an Eskimo's tool,
I'm as cool as a fish in a frozen pool,
Cool as a pane of frosty glass,
Cool as the fringe round a polar bear's ass.
Cool.

Highly topical, in that the Canadians are about to send New England another of those air masses.
