If you were in need of Rats - go to the Quartermaster's Stores

There were Rats Rats big as Freaking Cats - in the stores in the stores
There were mice mice eating all the rice in the Quartermaster's Stores
My eyes are dim I cannot see
I have not brought my Spec's with me
I Have no-ot brought my specs with me

that goes back to the Second World war - 1939 - 1945 - but I cannot sing the rest - Children might be watching - I was seven - when a boy-friend of my Mama's taught me the "song" - I learned "the Old Bazaar in Cairo" from one of the others - now that my dear Sam may explain my weird sense of humour - you could Google for the Titles and certainly get one of the "Cleaned-Up" versions.
When I was in College (prior to finishing at UNI) I was the oldest student in class - and when one fellow pupil dismissed the war as history - a wee girl - half his size went for him - little vixen she were - "Don't dismiss it has history - Patti was part of it and got "Bombed Out" - those were the days - Being a child without a Teddy in those days is likely the reason I love the Wombles so much - I hope you do not mind Orinoco.

Bear in mind Sam my formula for reproving a person who calls you weird -

"Ok hon - if you are Normal - I'll take weird any day of the week"

I should have been with Nanny Ogg when she went on a Trip with Granny Weatherwax "~Witches Abroad" it was hysterical - I would have been Nanna Patti - who makes hideous things happen to wicked spiteful people

My Dad taught me to sing that one holiday, when we spent hours in the car, Patricia?!! - HA HA HA!!!

Ohhh dear?.....I guess that does explain why we do share the same 'weird' sense of humour then?!! :o>

Sure -it's great fun - I had the fun of learning the "Barrack-Room" version of it from my lovely husband - now he was another one - a crazy sense of humour

I too have a very "inconvenient" sense of humour having grown up in the 60s as the youngest of 10 with many older brothers, several in the Army in one capacity or another. They'd come home on leave and sit in the kitchen sipping coffee and swapping stories, and telling off colour jokes...woe is me, the day the 4 year old "got" the joke before anyone else...LOL
I don't mind being loved, Patti!

Bearman says:
I am an inappropriate laugher. MY boss always comments that she knows things are bad when I start giggling and laughing too much around the office. I can't help trying to lighten the mood in bad situations, even when its not the right thing to do in the circumstances.

Bet you are in hysterics then Bearman with the end of the world prophecy! I'll have to slap you with a wet lettuce leaf if you don't stop!xx

OK Pixie - I shall help - Thrash him with a handful of Cold Boiled Noodles - that'll larn him

My Dad's version wasn't very rude? - but it was very silly and always had me in hysterics.....

There were Eggs, Eggs, with short, fat hairy legs in the stores, in the stores,
There were Fleas, Fleas, a' nibblin' at your knees in the Quartermaster's stores!

There were Bats, Bats, as big as ruddy Cats, in the stores, in the stores,
There were Ants, Ants, wearing Grandad's underpants in the Quartermaster's stores!

Oh Splendid stuff - I love that version - it is fun to be silly sometimes - I try to do something daft every day

Ahhh memories! My Grandad always used to sit me on his knee and say this in a very deep scary voice? -

The Night was dark and stormy! - and the wind was blowing wild! And the Miller said to his daughter - I'll tell you a tale?.....And the tale went on like this, you know?!.....The Night was dark and stormy! - and the wind was blowing wild! And the Miller said to his daughter - I'll tell you a tale?.....And the tale went on like this, you know?!.....The Night was dark and stormy! - and the wind was blowing wild! And the Miller said to his daughter - I'll tell you a tale?.....And the tale went on like this, you know?!.....

Apparently, I used to start yelling at him at that point to stop being 'a naughty Grandy' and to tell it to me properly next time! - I was utterly convinced that he was doing it deliberately just to tease me, but it seems that he wouldn't, simply because he couldn't?! as that was all there was to it! - I've absolutely no idea where he got it from though?!.....Does anybody else know it? :o>

Oh we had one like that -

The Night was dark and stormy - and the wind howled in the Trees and as the men sat around the fire one of them said "Hey Cap'n tell us one of your stories - So The Cap'n began -

"The Night was Dark and stormy ...............

"My name is Yon Yonson, I live in Visconsin, I vork in de lumberyard dere. And when I walk down the street, all the people I meet, dey holler, "Vat's your name?" and I say: My name is Yon Yonson, I live..."

Ohhh brilliant!!!.....I usually get totally blank looks when I start reminiscing about stuff my Grandad told me, and sadly he died when I was eight, so I have never known where he picked at least half of it up? He was the one who gave me my family nickname of "suzysunshine". And he learnt to read and write only a few years before he died, after years of struggling and hiding his illiteracy from everyone, just so that he could read to me from my book of fairy stories? - he was a truly wonderful man.....x

Sometimes it ended Vid axe handle in mine HAND

Either way - it got round to saying
Ven I valk down de street good people I meet and me dey greet
"Who you bin" - and I say - my name it bane Yonson ..........

Oh my Mom's Daddy - Nonno (my Italian Grand-dad) I met him and he was lovely - talked like a Stage Italian - picking something up - saying
"Whose - a - belonga THIS" - it is not that he looked like Marlon Brando - but he Copied Don Corleone in his Autocratic manner
