The song is an oldish Scots one, possibly Music Hall and all I can remember is the first verse, any help. Greme
ALL OF A SUDDEN THE SKIN OF A PUDDIN' CAME FLYING THROUGH THE AIR
IT MISSED MA MITHER BIT HIT MA FAITHER AN KNOCKED HIM DOON THE STAIR.

To the tune of "Blaze Away". The (English) version I know included:

Never been pissed, never been kissed
He's the King of the Fairies

All of a sudden a little black pudding
Came flying through the air
It missed my Ma, and hit my Pa
And knocked him off his chair.

Mrs McVitie had only to only one titty
To feed the baby on
Poor little cripple, he's only one nipple
To gnash his teeth upon

Copied from the website of The Northern Echo and the Darlington & Stockton Times:

All of a sudden
A great big black puddin'
Came flying through the air.
Swift as an arrow
And fat as a marrow
And covered all over with hair.

If you know any ladies
Who want any babies,
Then bring them here to me;
Today's the day
We give 'em away
With half a pound of tea.

[If you can figure out how to use their search feature (I couldn't) you might find more info about that song at the above site.]

"The Northern Echo" printed the following one week earlier:

"Almost everyone will know the words, perhaps with slight variations; the tune may need no rehearsing either...:

All of a sudden
A dirty great puddin',
Came floating through the air.
It missed me mother
And hit me father
And knockeed him off his chair....

Are there any more verses to this North-East classic?..."

The tune is part one of "Blaze Away!" a "March and Two-Step" composed in 1901 by Abe Holzmann (and not, as is often assumed, by John Philip Sousa).

Me mother was drinking a bottle of Ushers very very fine beer, oh it did strike.. and she did sh*te right in the parsons ear.. Can't remember any more, and the above lyrics might not be exact, a scottish school friend from many moons ago used to sing it :)

All of a sudden a bloody great pudden
Came flying through the air
It missed me Ma, it hit me Pa\
And knocked him off the chair
And when the lights came on again
We found the old man on the job again
Working a way like man possessed
Starching the end of his Sunday best

What a man
What a knob
He's always on the job

We'll make a bonfire of our letters
And we'll watch them blaze away
And when they're gone we'll get some new ones
And then we'll use them - use them right away.

Hull, Yorkshire 1950s

All of a sudden a bloody rice puddin came flying through the air
It missed me ma and hit me pa and knocked him of his chair.
Me granny went crackers and stamped on his knackers and pissed all over the wall,
The dog went mad and bit me dad in his one-and-only ball.

As it seems to end there in our version I'm very tempted to add the 2 Ronnies chorus: (English comic duo on TV)
And then we all had a damn good time
On bangers and mash, and bottles o' wine
Oh yes we all had a damn good time,
Enough is enough, let's go and get stuffed.....to-gether
