I'm looking for some words I've forgotten...originally learned in the 60s whilst working in Edinburgh
Tune Is 'Bless 'em all'    Bits are
Chorus: Boomerang, boomerang, let's send 'em back where the belang
Alang wi' aud Ardenaur, Kennedys pal, Signore Fanfarny? and Charlie de Gaulle
For we dinna like gifts that gae bang,just try one and see if I'm wrang
The banners are wavin' wha's next for the shavin'
So open yer boom boomerang

Probably from the CND group called the Glasga Eskimos, who used kayaks to get into (US)Naval Bases and paint CND signs on the side of anchored warships

From previous Mudcat Thread:

BOOMERANG
(Morris Blythman / Matt McGinn)

Chorus:
Boomerang, boomerang, just send them back whaur they belang
Alang wi' auld Adenauer, Kennedy's pal
Signor Fanfani and Chairlie de Gaulle
For we dinnae like gifts that go bang
Just try one and see if I'm wrang
The banners are wavin', wha's next for the shavin'
So open the boom, boomerang

Noo they say that the arms ships doon at Dunnoon
Belang tae a big millionaire
Well, ah hope tae hell they get oot o' there soon
Afore we're all up in the air
For the fella that sent them's an awfy nice chap
He sent them out here as a gift
For he'd heard the hotels in Dunnoon were depressed
And he wanted tae gie them a lift

Well there's yobs and there's mugs and there's OAS thugs
And Nazis and Dutchmen(?) galore
A' fear'd frae the Reds crawlin' under their beds
And walkin'(?) behind every door
But we're no takin' orders frae Paris or Bonn
We're no takin' orders frae Rome
We're no goin' alang wi' that Washington gang
We're just tellin' the nutmeg, Go home

But you needn't suppose I'm a Communist
Just 'cause I don't want to die
'Cos' I think that I'm down on their little list
For action if they should come by
But the Russians are thousands of miles away
And the Yankees are just up the road
And no matter who starts it, we'll be the target
Why don't we lighten the load

They say that the Trident ships doon at Faslane
Are there to protect you and me
From strange evil forces that threaten oor land
But they don't say just who they might be
But Scotland's got nae need for Trident at all
Withoot them we're a' daein' fine
Tell Major tae stick a' his nuclear bombs
In a place where the sun doesnae shine


Mildly amusing, nonsensical song - misses the point that a nuclear free Scotland, whether part of a nuclear armed UK or not, is somewhat akin to having a "No Pissing" end of a public swimming pool.
