At my schools the Head teacher was "the Heidmaster" at Primary school, but "The Rector" at secondary school

This may have to be withdrawn because it is sectarian although as a child I didn't realise that

King Billy had an Orange cat,
it sat upon the fender
and every time it saw a mouse,
It shouted No Surrender

Says he to me "could ye go a pie?"
Says I "aye, quite shy, never thinkin"
The dirty way he did it!
He lifted up his walkin stick, N' walked on the bus!
When i cam aff the bus, who dae ye think wis standin there.... Him!

Says he to me "Is that you"?
Says I "Aye who"?
Says he "You"!
Says I "aye me"!
Says he "Aye"!
Says I "naw"!
Says he "Well it's somebody hellava like ye"!

My Mum still says it, she 82 and she can only say it really fast....we had such a laugh trying to write it down lol

Not the original, but my Mum used to say the second bit to us all the time, but slightly different..."awfy like ye" at the end for example. I have never heard the first bit before and I am not sure what it means at all!

Well it shows you how bad my memory is! I thought I'd have a look at this thread....and realised I had started it in 2005! i completely forgot.

But I also forgot that the song above was also discussed on the first couple of pages of the thread! So there's proof, my memory is no good!
