O ye canny shove yer granny aff the bus No ye canny shove yer granny aff the bus ye canny shove yer granny 'cos she's yer mammy's mammy No ye canny shove yer granny aff the bus

Singin' I will if you will, so will I Singin' I will if you will, so will I Singin' I will if you will, I will if you will I will if you will, so will I.

Ye can shove yer other granny aff the bus Ye can shove yer other granny aff the bus Ye can shove yer other granny 'cos she's yer daddy's mammy Ye can shove yer other granny aff the bus

The song goes on with other relatives/political figures etc as required - as far as I have ever known!

Ah cannae get ma granny aff the drugs
Oh ah cannae get ma grannie aff the drugs.
She's takin' speed an' jellies,
Stealing people's tellies,
Ah cannae get ma granny aff the drugs.

Chorus: Aye aye yippee etc Ma granny is a hippie, aye aye yippee ippy aye.

There's a short clip on Youtube of an Alternative Robert Burns' Night, and a ghastly raucous female bawls this out while banging at random on a flat drum thing (bodhran?)

The 'drugs' version was written by Vincent Kingston, well known singer and chimney sweep of Castle Douglas in Galloway, though not sure how to get in touch with him- yellow pages?

I started to type the name into Google, but the surname is Kingstree. Definitely chimney sweep in Castle Douglas!

Ah cannae get ma granny aff the drugs
Oh ah cannae get ma grannie aff the drugs.
She's takin' speed an' jellies,
Stealing people's tellies,
Ah cannae get ma granny aff the drugs.

Chorus: Aye aye yippee etc Ma granny is a hippie, aye aye yippee ippy aye.

Ah cannae get ma granny aff the drugs
Oh ah cannae get ma grannie aff the drugs.
I'm sure she'd pulled a swedgie
She's looking kind of edgy
Chorus: Aye aye yippee etc Ma granny is a hippie, aye aye yippee ippy aye.

Ah cannae get ma granny aff the drugs
Oh ah cannae get ma grannie aff the drugs.
She's taking loads of coppers
And selling loads of poppers.
Chorus: Aye aye yippee etc Ma granny is a hippie, aye aye yippee ippy aye.


Ah cannae get ma granny aff the drugs
Oh ah cannae get ma grannie aff the drugs.
She' stolen all ma hash
and taken all my cash
Chorus: Aye aye yippee etc Ma granny is a hippie, aye aye yippee ippy aye.
