    By Spike Milligan


    On the Ning Nang Nong
    Where the Cows go Bong!
    And the Monkeys all say Boo!
    There’s a Nong Nang Ning
    Where the trees go Ping!
    And the tea pots Jibber Jabber Joo.
    On the Nong Ning Nang
    All the Mice go Clang!
    And you just can’t catch ‘em when they do!
    So it’s Ning Nang Nong!
    Cows go Bong!
    Nong Nang Ning!
    Trees go Ping!
    Nong Ning Nang!
    The mice go clang!
    What a noisy place to belong,
    Is the Ning Nang Ning Nang Nong!

    I wondered if you'd been on the wine??!!

    LOL only joking - love it and my son learnt it by heart as his "party piece" as I use to read it to them at bedtime ... with lots of emphasis.

    Aha. Spike! My Dad's favourite.

    This one was my party piece

    Bazonka

    Say Bazonka every day
    That's what my grandma used to say
    It keeps at bay the Asian Flu'
    And both your elbows free from glue.
    So say Bazonka every day
    (That's what my grandma used to say)

    Don't say it if your socks are dry!
    Or when the sun is in your eye!
    Never say it in the dark
    (The word you see emits a spark)
    Only say it in the day
    (That's what my grandma used to say)

    Young Tiny Tim took her advice
    He said it once, he said it twice
    he said it till the day he died
    And even after that he tried
    To say Bazonka! every day
    Just like my grandma used to say.

    Now folks around declare it's true
    That every night at half past two
    If you'll stand upon your head
    And shout Bazonka! from your bed
    You'll hear the word as clear as day
    Just like my grandma used to say!

    Lol! Sounds like a poem about verruca cream!

    This was my fave Spike M poem;


    Soldier Freddy

    Soldier Freddy
    Was never ready,
    But Soldier Neddy,
    Unlike Freddy
    Was always ready
    And steady.

    That's why,
    When soldier Neddy
    Is-outside-Buckingham-Palace-on-guard-in-the-pouring-wind-and-rain-being-steady-and-ready,
    Freddie-
    Is home in beddy.


    And this. Simple but brilliant;

    Rain

    There are holes in the sky where the rain gets in
    But they're ever so small
    That's why rain is thin.:D

    I think Spike was a favourite of many Dad's. My dad too!! I just phoned him and said them all down the phone. He was pleased :D - he says them all to his primary 2's.

    I think I shall be singing the Ning nang nong at my friends on the Moonwalk - Dad, Mum and I will probably be the only ones who know it. How come my generation has missed out on this???:confused: (apart from me) T'is very sad!!

    If I didn't know Ning Nang Nong I would definitely have thought you'd been at the absynth again young lady:D

    Love Spike Milligan and all the Goons the goon show was really funny. They don't make them like that anymore Neddy.

    For someone who suffered so much from depression he knew how to make people laugh.

    Yes, he suffered from Bipolar, which I get. Of course, in olden days, we were just manic depressives:rolleyes: (I was diagnosed some 30 years ago as MD)

    Now we have posh names, but it still feels the same;)

    I wonder if he ever wanted to lose it...be cured. Often I don't want to be. The highs can be so much 'fun' and the time when I'm at my most creative:D

    Then there's the lows :(.............
