Subject: Never hit your grandma with a shovel
From: Bob Schwarer
Date: 04 Nov 96 - 02:09 PM

this may be the title, or just one line. I would like the entire lyric if anyone knows it. "Never hit your grandma with a shovel. It leaves a bad impression on her mind." That's all I remember.

Thanks, Bob S.

Hi- Sorry, but I don't know it. If you find it, send it in!

How about:

Don't never t'run stones on yer mudder It isn't the right thing to do-- Don't never trun stones on yer mudder She never trun them on you.

Don't never trun stones on yer mudder Don't never trun stones on her head; Don't never trun stones on yer mudder Trun bricks on yer fadder instead!

My gradpa sings this one all the time... there is another verse but I only remember the first one:

Never hit your granny with a shovel,
it leaves a bad impression on her mind,
in some other way impart,
all the love that's in your heart,
and remember that she may retort in kind.

Hope you learn the rest of it... I'd love to know the rest of the words too!!

SECONF VERSE!!!!!

Remember Grandmas loved you since a baby,
And even though in fun t'would prove a shock
So respect her aged head
Stay the shovel and instead
Hit your sweet old, dear old, Grandma with a rock.

Does anyone know the TUNE?

Interesting! Paul Newman sang those two lines to Katherine Ross as he pedalled and performed for her around the barn on his "newfangled bi-cycle" in the movie "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" (circa 1969 maybe??) Paul Newman played Butch and Katherine Ross played Etta Place, Sundance's girlfriend. Robert Redford was The Sundance Kid. Still my favorite Western ever!!

You can sort of fit the words to Tom Paxton's "I Am changing my name to Chrysler".

Subject: Lyr Add: NEVER HIT YOUR GRANDMA WITH A SHOVEL
From: GUEST,P J Evans
Date: 16 Apr 08 - 04:33 PM

VERSE: A grandma and her grandchild sat by the kitchen door
Of a quaint old-fashioned house built long ago.
The little lass grew restless as on the evening wore,
For she felt that time was fleeting very slow.
'I must do something!' cried the girl, and seized a nearby spade,
But a passing stranger blocked her swing, whilst these wise words he said:

CHORUS: 'Never hit your grandma with a shovel,
For it makes a bad impression on her mind.
In a better way impart
All those love-things in your heart,
For it's possible she may retort in kind.
Remember Granny's known you since a baby,
And even though in fun, 'twould prove a shock.
So respect that aged head,
Stay that shovel and instead -
Paste your dear old, sweet old grandma with a rock!'

(I learned it from my mother, and have the songbook it's in.)

This is apparently a Spike Jones number, written by Felix Hanemann in 1942. Lots of Google hits, so no reason to post for lyrics here.

Back in the (gasp) 1930s, we sang:
Don't never trun rocks on your mudder
It isn't the right thing to do.
Don't never trun rocks on you mudder
She never trew none at you.
Don't never trun rocks on your mudder
Don't never trun rocks on her head
Don't never trun rocks on your mudder
Trun bricks on your fadder instead.

(with a strong Brooklyn accent.
