Wordy Wednesday

On the Ning Nang Nong - Spike Milligan

On the Ning Nang Nong
Where the Cows go Bong!
and the monkeys all say BOO!
There's a Nong Nang Ning
Where the trees go Ping!
And the tea pots jibber jabber joo.
On the Nong Ning Nang
All the mice go Clang
And you just can't catch 'em when they do!
So its Ning Nang Nong
Cows go Bong!
Nong Nang Ning
Trees go ping
Nong Ning Nang
The mice go Clang
What a noisy place to belong
is the Ning Nang Ning Nang Nong!!

My favourite Spike Milligan poem is


String is a
Very important thing
Rope is thicker
But string is quicker.

I have both his Silly Verse for Kids books. :)

My Dad used to read the ning, nang nong poem to me when I was little :)
Here's another favourite.

A baby sardine saw her first submarine.
She was scared and watched through a peephole.
Oh come, come, come, said the sardine's Mum.
It's only a tin full of people.

And not to forget of course.

I must go down to the sea again.
The lonely sea in the sky.
I left my vest and socks there.
I wonder if they're dry

- brilliant !!
