Ian left out one of the best verses:

I had a cold and ma nose was raw
I hadnae handkercheif ava'
So I lifted up ma kilt just tae give it a blaw
WHEW, DONALD WHERE'S YER TROOSERS?

You cannae shove your granny off the bus (OFF THE BUS)
You cannae shove your granny off the bus (OFF THE BUS)
you cannae shove your granny, 'cause she's your mammy's mammy,
You cannae shove your granny off the bus.

You can shove your other granny off the bus (HEAVE HO)
You can shove your other granny off the bus (HEAVE HO)
You can shove your other granny, 'cause she's your daddy's mammy,
You can shove your other granny off the bus.

Singin' I will if you will, so will I
Singin' I will if you will, so will I
Singin' I will if you will, I will if you will,
I will if you will, so will I.

Sung to the tune of "She'll be comin' round the mountain"
