    Dont even know where it hails from but there's the black pudding song
    Sit the bairn sideways on your knees,"All of a sudden a big black puddin come flying the through the air,it missed me mam and hit me dad and KNOCKED him off his chair"
    On the knocked bit you open your legs and let the bairn fall through making a big fuss.
    My 12yr old son still asks for it !

    Tiddlywinks old man, get a woman if you can,
    If you can't get a woman get a canny old man,
    Do Your balls hang low, can you swing 'em to and fro?
    When you do a double shuffle do your balls hang low.

    TUNE: The Lambton Worm
    Written by Ernie Taylor union sec at Dawdon pit.

    Hush lads had thee gob ar'l tell yer arl an arful story
    Hush lads had thee gob an' ar'l tell yer aboot the mole.

    To Dawdon Colliery Thyssens came an' brung with 'em a mole
    Its an arful fearsome lukin' thing wi' which to drive a hole
    Thar's Jarmans, Welshmen, Yorkshire lads an' fella's off the dole
    Thats drivin' this monster oot te sea, towards war cokin' coal.

    Hush lad had thee gob ar'l tell yer arl an arful story
    Hush lads had thee gob an' ar'l tell yer aboot the mole.

    Noo Thyssens' men a' deem arl reet, they pay a lot o' tax
    Still they divvent get owt for nowt they nivver can relax
    An' if betimes they get oot o' line there's nee Depitation Agenda
    Disputes for them just don't exist they're settled by the nose benda.

    Hush lads had thee gob ar'l tell yer arl an arful story
    Hush lads had thee gob an' ar'l tell yer aboot the mole.

    Te these canny lads we'd like to give a wee bit o' advice
    Watch yersels, an' dee whats reet an' divvent be pit mice
    We waddent like te see any o' yer ivver cum te grief
    There's ne carl at arl te smash yersels or Rarfie's perminent Relief.

    Hush lad had thee gob ar'l tell yer an an arful story
    Hush lads had thee gob an' ar'l tell yen aboot the mole.

    Ye've a lang way to gan wi' that 12 foot span a churning oot that muck
    An' arl the bonnie Dawdon lads wish ye's the best o' luck
    Its up to ye's - but am warnin yer - ye'd better win the cup
    Or wor 'Monster' at bank an' the one below 'ill turn an' gobble yer up.

    Hush lads had thee gob ar'l tell yer arl an arful story
    Hush lads had thee gob an' an'l tell yer aboot the mole.

    In the early 70s, Dawdon pit hit bad times. Coal was a tad thin. There was vast reserves a few miles out in the North sea. Out of reach of the Doscoes, and Anderson Boyes roadheaders. Thysson were brought in to break through to reach the offshore reserves with 'the mole' Millions of££££ were spent but it only gave the pit 20 years.

  6. We fucking hate the mags
    We fucking hate the mags
    We fucking hate, we fucking hate the mags
    We fucking hate the mags
    We fucking hate the mags
    We fucking hate, we fucking hate the mags

    Kids love repetition in songs and it helps in getting across an important life lesson.

    If not this, then the Lambton Worm.

    I forgot to mention, there's a nice version of Dance To Thy Daddy with the original words here:

    this is the one I had on cassette
     
  13. When I went to university in Liverpool in the 90’s I remember one of our lecturers singing a load of NE folk songs on stage. ‘Wor Geordie lost his penkers’ sticks in my mind for some reason :lol:

    Reet, I've found the record. It's called 'Home Newcastle - The North East's Greatest Hits' and has the following mix of really nice and utter shite:

    1. I'm Coming Home, Newcastle - Busker
    2. Jarrow Song - Alan Price
    3. Water of Tyne - Prelude.
    4. Blaydon Races - Owen Brannigan. Bit of blurb: 'A version of the Geordie Anthem The Blaydon Races just had to be included and Owen Brannigan's rendition must surely be the most consistently popular. Owen signs here with Low Fell Ladies Choir, the Felling Male Voice Choir, BMC Concert Band, and plenty of gusto.'
    5. Geordie was a Clubman
    6. Durham Town - Roger Whittaker
    7. Fog on the Tyne - Lindisfarne.
    8. Dance ti this daddy - Alex Glasgow
    9. Geordie's Lost his Liggy - Geordie
    10. Geordie Sunday - JACK CHARLTON - a stunning piece of Geordie kitsch, you'll cry laughing.

    @wisemensaysteve Edit: the sleeve says the Blaydon Races is from the album 'Brannigan's Northumbria' - that's different from the one you posted.

    Good this, it's like detective work.
