  • (Alex Glasgow)

    Nigel -
    Get your finger out your nose
    Get your elbows off the table
    I wish you'd learn to brush your clothes
    Hurry up, your daddy's waiting

    Nigel -
    Drink your milk up nicely
    Sit up straight and stop that yawning
    Nigel -
    Leave that spoon alone
    Must I tell you every morning

    Nigel -
    Sometimes I despair
    Is that the way to treat your brother
    Stop wriggling in your chair
    Why don't you listen to your mother

    Off you go now, brush your teeth
    You've dirtied that clean shirt already
    Don't you talk to me like that
    Or I'll go and tell your daddy

    For Heaven's sake, child, hurry up
    Of course you don't need rubber boots
    It's sandals you'll need today
    Good gracious, child, you'll have me grey

    Button up now, blow your nose
    You're a most untidy child
    Behave yourself in school today
    And, Nigel -
    Why do you never, ever smile?

    (as sung by Iain MacKintosh)

Susannes Folksong-Notizen

  • [1988:] When I was a child I was always late for school. My mother was always angry at breakfast time, it was the least peaceful time of my day. I used to sing this as a children's song until I realised it isn't a children's song - it's a mothers' song. (Intro Iain MacKintosh)
