For one reason or another I was reminded of this song today - it’s something we used to sing when I was a youngster and we were heading off on a schooltrip somewhere on a bus.

Haven’t a clue who wrote it or whether I’m infringing on some copyright issues by printing the lyrics here, but never mind…

It’s called Ye Cannae Shove Yer Granny and is sung to the tune of She’ll be Coming Round the Mountain :-

Oh ye cannae shove yer Granny aff a bus,
Oh ye cannae shove yer Granny aff a bus,
Ye cannae shove yer Granny
For she’s yer Mammie’s Mammie,
Ye canna shove yer Granny aff a bus.

Oh ye canna shove yer Granny aff a bus,
Oh ye canna shove yer Granny aff a bus,
Oh ye canna shove yer Granny
Cos she’s yer Mammie’s Mammie
Oh ye canna shove yer Granny aff a bus.

Ye can shove yer ither Granny aff a bus.
Ye can shove yer ither Granny aff a bus.
Ye can shove yer ither Granny
Cos she’s yer Faither’s Mammy
Ye can shove yer ither Granny aff a bus.

Ye can shove yer Uncle Wullie aff a bus.
Ye can shove yer Uncle Wullie aff a bus.
Uncle Wullie’s like yer Faither
A harum-scarum blether,
Ye can shove yer Uncle Wullie aff a bus.

Ye can shove yer Auntie Maggie aff a bus.
Ye can shove yer Auntie Maggie aff a bus.
Auntie Meg’s yer Faither’s sister,
She’s naethin’ but a twister,
Ye can shove yer Auntie Maggie aff a bus.

But ye canna shove yer Granny aff a bus.
Oh ye canna shove yer Granny aff a bus.
Oh ye canna shove yer Granny,
Cos she’s yer Mammy’s Mammy,
Oh ye canna shove yer Granny aff a bus.

Oh, happy days!!
