I used to have a tape of Alastair McDonald that had the song the day the cavemen came to Glasgow, sadly the tape is long gone but I would like to sing this for the twins(six years old) as I think they would love it as much as I did.
I do remember bits an pieces of it but not the correct order or indeed all the words.
The day the cavemen came to Glasgow
There was chaos in George Square
There were cavemen climbing statues
and pterodactyls zooming everywhere
another bit was something trying to get on the Gorbals caur
Jeanie the clippie she hid tae laugh
all she could say wis come oan get aff
It wis rare whit a tear
it wis better than Ayr at the fair.
there was a verse about something landing on washing with the hilarious phrase
It looks just like the bissim up oor stair
another about the drunk
? went tae the pub tae buy a hauf
and though he spent some umpteen shillings
we he came oot he sure wis feelin better aff
but when he got up tae his landin
something passed his understanding
laid across his doorway and it jist widny go away.
the last bit I remember was
If ye wanted ower tae Govan wie the very minimum o shovein
The council scrapped the wee clyde ferry cause it wisny nessesary
if ye wanted ower the river there wis a new exotic wey
Keep right on till as far as it goes
there at the waters edge
you'll surely sign the pledge
staunin there as though it didny care
there wis a great big brontosauras
stridin(lyin) ower frae bank tae bank
it hid its hied doon Cesnock subway
and its tail wis fankled
roon a Partick stank
Alpine stocks a tanner slide doon fur free the ither side.
can anyone help.

Hmmm My brain says it might have been called something like "The day the stone age came to Glasgow"
