Song – On the Ning Nang Nong


One of our kids loves the poem ‘Ning Nang Nong’ by the wonderful Spike Milligan. Well, we read it once, and I thought that we could include the instruments.

On the Ning Nang Nong Where the Cows go Bong!  (DRUM)
and the monkeys all say BOO!
There’s a Nong Nang Ning
Where the trees go Ping!    (TRIANGLE)
And the tea pots jibber jabber joo.   (The instrument we call a ‘handbag’ because we don’t know the real name for it, it’s a long story)
On the Nong Ning Nang
All the mice go Clang   (CYMBALS)
And you just can’t catch ’em when they do!
So its Ning Nang Nong Cows go Bong!   (DRUM)
Nong Nang Ning Trees go ping    (TRIANGLE)
Nong Ning Nang The mice go Clang   (CYMBALS)
What a noisy place to belong   (ALL OF THE INSTRUMENTS TOGETHER)
is the Ning Nang Ning Nang Nong!!
