DUNDEE GANG KARAOKE - 1973

The 2 karaoke renditions below are to the tune of "This Old Man".
These chants were heard regularly in certain areas of Dundee back in the early 70's when teenagers were "mental" - and yet ruled!
The first, by the Fleet, I can remember being sung in and around Dens Park on match days.
The Toddy version was sung upstairs on the 26 bus and in Craigie High School playground.
Incidentally, MP George Galloway used to be in the Fleet.
He said in a radio interview that he recalled spraying "Lochee Fleet" on walls.
Nowadays he makes headlines in Fleet Street and puts the boot into politicians..!!

    ALONG CAME A MID BOY, AND ASKED MY NAME.
    I KICKED HIM IN THE BALLS,AND I KICKED HIM IN THE HEAD.
    NOW THAT MID BOY, IS DEAD.
    Another Dundee nursery rhyme of the period.
