GUEST,Granny in Wales What did your Dad used to sing? (206* d) RE: What did your Dad used to sing? 28 Jan 08

I don't know where this song came from but my Dad used to sing it - the scenario, presumably is that the rent-collector has come, mother has no money and he is issuing threats, one of the children sings:

Please don't burn our shit-house down
Mother has promised to pay
Father's away on the ocean blue
And sis in the family way
Brother dear has gonorrhea
O times is f***ing hard
So please don't burn our shit-house down
Or we'll have to shit in the yard.

RIP Ivor 10.1.22-28.5.07
