Spike Milligan

Terence Alan Milligan, known as 'Spike' (1918-2002) dedicated his life to making people laugh, through his performances on radio and television, through his poems and memoirs, and often just by being himself.In a BBC poll in 1999 he was voted "the funniest person of the last 1,000 years."

About the Poet

It blew on man, it blew on beastIt blew on nun, it blew on priestIt blew the wig off Auntie Fanny-But most of all, it blew on Granny!

All through the night the wind grew worseIt nearly made the vicar curseThe top had fallen off the steepleJust missing him (and other people)

Through every nook and every crannyThe wind blew in on poor old GRANNYAround her knees, into each ear(And up nose as well, I fear)

Spike was a complicated chap, completely bonkers! He could make people laugh, but also cry. He left us with the following words on his gravestone, I TOLD YOU I WAS ILL.

Cows go Bong!Nong Nang NingTrees go pingNong Ning NangThe mice go ClangWhat a noisy place to belongis the Ning Nang Ning Nang Nong!!

On the Ning Nang NongWhere the Cows go Bong!and the monkeys all say BOO!There's a Nong Nang NingWhere the trees go Ping!And the tea pots jibber jabber joo.On the Nong Ning NangAll the mice go ClangAnd you just can't catch 'em when they do!So its Ning Nang Nong
