On the Ning Nang Nong

For some reason this poem popped in to my head yesterday and I havent been able to get it out since.
I haven't got it memorised so I've been reciting it over and over to Oliver with complete nonsensical words in place of the ones I can't remember, just to make it rhyme. I know it doesnt make any sense with the right words anyway but that's why it's so great. You gotta love Spike Milligan. Oli seems to enjoy it too :)

I'd love to find the time to type it out nicely with some cool graphics and put it on his wall.

On the Ning Nang Nong
Where the Cows go Bong!
and the monkeys all say BOO!
There's a Nong Nang Ning
Where the trees go Ping!
And the tea pots jibber jabber joo.
On the Nong Ning Nang
All the mice go Clang
And you just can't catch 'em when they do!
So its Ning Nang Nong
Cows go Bong!
Nong Nang Ning
Trees go ping
Nong Ning Nang
The mice go Clang
What a noisy place to belong
is the Ning Nang Ning Nang Nong!!
