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".
Sad. time pisses me off... Relentless bastard.
Had this played for my Granddad when we lost him
Was this old nonce the annoying, unfunny one in 'Dad's Army?'
THis song takes me right back back to the 1970's, and my distant schooldays in Manchester , and listening to it on the odd occasion now will always be one of my 'guilty pleasures'.
Clive would of been 100 this year RIP
IT'S FUCKING CHARLIE HARPER AND THE UK SUBS , ONLY 13 BUT OH SO SWEET !
Written by session bass player Herbie Flowers, the guy on Lou Reed’s Walk on the Wild Side.
my grandad died and everyone was so sad
I think he shits himself at 2.28
Wow xD funny 😂
Some Folk are Lovely
Ahhhh the 70s
My grandad had this played at his funeral 14th of june 2007 and it still makes me cry now because this was is song to all of us
This is so sweet and wonderful.
So sweet that this became No. 1 in the charts. When did the world get so serious?
Fantastic! For all the Grandad's .
Love Clive and dads army
Beautiful song love Clive Dunn
Shame about the recent comments. Mediocre record, but many liked it. It did well in the charts in the day. Why the calling and slag**ng of Clive ?
This held of Tr.Rex's White Swan from #1??? Jeesh!!!
wonder where those teenage girls are now
Dont panic dont panic...legend
Hey wiggy I added you on msn messenger around 9 years ago
The kids look soooo fucking bored. Staged maudlin shit for the mediocre dunn.
R.I.P my great grandad died 7th of January 2020 5 days after his birthday and he was in world war two 😭 I'm crying right now! I'm so upset this was played at his funeral
Sorry for your loss
@tc030564 good poem x
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
I know how you feel lost my grandad 10 years ago still hurts hold on to his advise.my grandad was also a ww2 vet fought on Normandy.best generation that ever lived
I remember a friend's well-meaning but totally dotty grandmother buying this as a Xmas stocking filler for my friend's elder teen brother who was into......... Hendrix and The Stones.
If he was into that drug addled overrated noise producer Dinny Tuneless Madheadrix his grandmother was telling him.that music needs a tune not a cacophony of bilge.
most of them were behind the scenes fluffing jimmy the perve
Someone else talking and thinking filth
They didn't like it up them did they
Don't panic Mr Manwering.
Clive dunn was a legend I still remember waiting for him to come on the television on top of the pops and it still brings a tear to my eye
Crap song that kept T.Rex off the No1spot, T.Rex also missed out when Benny Hill was number 1 with Ernie.
It was the best song ever
I'm here because Michael Mc Intyre narrates his a autobiography and he mentioned that, his dad produced this song.
This was my grandads funeral song
I hope to be something like this in 50 years....
I WAS 17 WHEN I HEARD THIS, AND I WONDERED WHAT IT WUD BE LIKE TO GET THAT OLD. HERE I AM 2019, AND HERE I AM A GRANDAD....OH MY GOOD GOWD! I LOVE IT! LOVE CLIVE AS WELL! AWESOME .
I was little younger.. Luckily im not a gramdad yet.. At 48 im near...
Hazza, do you sing this now ?
That comment soo applies to me! you're not on your own hazza, Im with ya! hee hee......agreed awesome song too....
i can only hope that the 200 thumbs down people , retract them as THEY get older , and turn into grand parents
The only song that makes this man cry. Used to sing it to my Grandad as a boy, but he couldn't hear us cos he was made deaf from being a naval gunner. He just used to smile politely bless him.
The year my mum died always remember this song . I was only 6 thanks for uploading .
Christ. Dad's Army was on TV yet again and I remembered this. Surely 0 ever recorded can match this in totally sick-making sentimentality? Of course, this was from a bygone age of innocence. Imagine the kids now singing, ''Grandad, Grandad, you're a pedo....that's what we all think of you....''
when thingswere so much better and people did not depend on phones
Nobody's getting replaced by devices!
I can feel a LOT of Happy Tears hitting a lot of sad cheeks during this lil feller .
Sounds abit like a day in the life by the Beatles
the six was a typing error.
could imagine jones doing Savile a lot of damage.
corporal jones clive dunn would have shoved his steel bayonet up jimmy saviles's arse and saying they6 don't like it up them they don't like it up them.
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.
@Kevin Stephenson Go fuck yourself
He was 51, you Ignorant bird brained moron..Keep your stupid thick mouth shut.
Great song very true often you think of things of when you were a child as you get older
For both my late grandads.... can’t wait to see you again xx
If you look in the Oxford English dictionary for 'dreadful' this video/song starts playing. It had some early 1970's charm though. It has to be said though - this was garbage beyond all words and comprehension.
@matthew findlay Oh please...this 'song' is pile of steaming shite. Almost as bad as that abortion the ghastly keith harris did with that fukcing orville creature.
I pity you,no sentiment or emotion,what a dull fucker you are.
Miss old Clive
This song is for my grandad who would of Been 87 today happy birthday
message to sky thanks guy i did not know my grand dad but why let true get in the way of a great advert. i am an adult i can choise to vote
I love this song, he looks just like my Grandad did when i was a kid, it brings back some happy memories for me.
Reminds me of when I was 5 years old sitting on my fathers lap, cheers Thomas Keddie Hunter in Tonge old Road in Bolton.
Played at my grandads funeral.. 4 years in june. Sleep tight.. miss you ❤️❤️
Well my miserable old git of great grandad hated this song 😂 but he always played it 😂 every morning for the passed 18years
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!
I remember this... I was only 4 or 5 at the time, how is that possible ?
Nostalgic song... just beautiful.
I love this song because it reminds me of my grandad who died 😢
no words breaks my heart
Clive Dunn died on November 6th 2012. I remember it.
My grandad was awesome ,fought in WW2 , a real nice gentleman ill miss and love him and gran forever
Number one in the UK on 09/01/1971. :-)
I sing this to my grandad every time he comes
Don't Panic, Don't Panic!
I only had one granny and she stunk of piss so I’m pleased I didn’t know the others 😂😂
He was actually just 51 when he sung this song. That's the same age I am now! And... just a few weeks ago I became a Grandad. I've been singing this almost every day since!
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
This song was my grandad song when he passed away he was the one I could ask for ROY JACKSON rip love from ru grandson

True gentleman ,bless his heart ....they dont like it up em !!!
This song was played at my grandad funeral and everyone who went to the funeral all commented on how the song was absolutly right about him. RIP Grandad
When u was young my granddad played this for me and I fell asleep on his lap but now when he puts it on I just sing along to the grandchild verse and he dose the granddad verse
Such à lovely song
I feel sorry for the.ones who had to sing to him
corporal jones would have shoved a bayonet up jimmy Savile's arse
this song is for all my wonderful gdads ll
In 1971 when I was 6 my parents divorced and I went to live with an aunt and uncle. Anyway they had this record by Clive Dunn. I remember the b side was I play the spoons.
permission to sing sir!
I have been singing that song, but instead of the word grandad, I sing teapot instead, sorry but I'm mad, it's just last year I was Nearly killed I had brain surgery spent over two months in hospital and I have a long scar on my head, And now I'm a teapot weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee,my brain is a bit faulty
Does he say " Common C-nts at 0.49 secs?
This was the song my grandad always sung, along with George Formby - Leaning on a Lampost... my grandad was and will always be my hero!!!!
