Album: Complete Kids (1970). Charted: 1. Get the Sheet Music License This Song. Grandad" is possibly the cheesiest song ever, sung by (and written for) English actor Clive Dunn, who played Cpl. Jones in the BBC TV comedy series Dad's Army (character catchphrase: "Don't panic, Captain Mainwaring!" ). Dunn was actually in his forties then, but was very well known in the UK for his character roles playing men in their seventies. The story goes that Dunn met Flowers at a party and on learning that Flowers was a composer, Dunn challenged Flowers to write him a novelty song, hence "Grandad.

Grandad" is a popular song by Herbie Flowers and Kenny Pickett, and recorded by Clive Dunn. While starring in the long-running BBC situation comedy Dad's Army, Dunn met bassist Herbie Flowers at a party and on learning he was a songwriter challenged him to write a song for him. Flowers wrote "Grandad" with Creation vocalist Kenny Pickett

This song is by Clive Dunn and appears on the compilation Hello Children Everywhere! 60 Favourite Kids' Songs (2004). I've been sitting here all day thinkingSame old thing ten years away thinkingNow my days are gone, memories linger onThoughts of when I was boy. Pennyfarthings on the street ridingMotorcars were funny things, frightningBow and hoops and spinning topsAnnie gretzel's lollipopsComic cuts, all different things.
