Clive Dunn - Grandad [totp2]

"Aeroplanes tied up with string, flying". "Motor cars were funny things, frightening". As a railway enthusiast, another lyric that I think would not have been out of place would have been "Trains puffing steam, exciting".

Sorry for your loss Noodle , he must have been of a great age a ww2 veteran , 91 or 92 at least , always remember """ To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.” and this great poem Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there. I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow. I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain. I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning's hush I am the swift uplifting rush Of quiet birds in circled flight. I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry; I am not there. I did not die.

@Dow Page our grandparents were simply amazing and had amazing power and strength when alive. I believe in a better place after death, if you don't that's fine. But I do. Xx can you imagine all the hard times back in the older days and this generation can't even wait to get back to the pubs and stuff cos of Corona...no patience to try squash this virus. Makes me think what is the world going to be like 100years from now the people.....you grandad sounds very cool xx as was mine. Proper soldiers. Who had no choice but to go and be a man. Xx my grandad also fought on Normandy. Wow. What if they was friends. He was shot and saved x which is lucky for me or I wouldn't be here now

Clive was only 23 years old when this was filmed. By this stage his crack addiction was starting to get the better of him and trying to hold down the role of Cpl Jones in Dad's Army as well as his career as a hard core porn actor was just too much for the man to take. Something had to give. Such a shame.

Herbie Flowers wrote this song, which kept T Rex's Ride A White Swan at no.2 in January 1971. He later replaced Steve Currie in T Rex on bass. Flowers is known to have played bass on around 500 well known recordings, including Bowie's Space Oddity and Diamond Dogs. He played the famous bass line in Walk On the Wild Side by Lou Reed. He's also known for playing the tuba!

Lyrics for Grandad by Clive Dunn I've been sitting here all day thinking Same old thing ten years away thinking Now my days are gone, memories linger on Thoughts of when I was boy Pennyfarthings on the street riding Motorcars were funny things, frightning Bow and hoops and spinning tops Annie gretzel's lollipops Comic cuts, all different things Grandad, grandad you're lovely That's what we all think of you Grandad, grandad you're lovely That's what we all think of you Grandad grandad Areoplanes tied up with string flying Telephones and talking things sighing A radio and phonograph, Charlie Chaplin made us laugh Silently falling about Familiar things I keep around, near me Memories of my younger days, clearly Now it's in my mind? Everyday I find, thoughts of when I was boy Grandad, grandad you're lovely That's what we all think of you Grandad, grandad you're lovely That's what we all think of you Grandad, grandad Grandad, grandad Grandad, grandad
