Songs sung on couch trip outings in the 50's

Recommended Posts

Does anyone remember the people on retuning on coach trips singing and there songs on the way back home.

Run rabbit run

Old McDonald had a farm

Ten green bottles

We'll meet again

 

Usually on trips back from Blackpool illuminations

Back in the 50/60's coach trips or by car day outings to Bridlington.

 

Songs like, The Runaway Train, The Hippopotamus Song Mud Mud Glorious Mud, A Windmill In Old Amsterdam, Rag Time Cowboy Joe, Itsy Bitsy Teenie Yellow Polka Dot Bikini, Tulips From Amsterdam, Thumbelina, Soldier Will You Marry Me, Who’s Afraid Of The Big Bad Wolf, Donald Where’s Your Troosers, Wonderful Wonderful Copenhagen,The Ugly Duckling and then they passed the cap round for a collection for the coach driver, I wonder what today’s generation would sing.

And my favourite a twist on Ten Green Bottle’s

Ten sticks of dynamite sitting on a wall

Ten sticks of dynamite sitting on a wall

If one stick of dynamite should accidently fall

There would be no sticks of dynamite

And no b----y wall.

Tiptoe Through the sodding Tulips.

Praise the lord for the installation of radios on coaches.
