My ten year old son was saying his nine year old pal was singing the Warburton song on the way home from school the other day. When I asked if my son joined in he looked quite sheepish. I hear him chanting it in his room but missing out the, ahem, rude words. Not sure if he does so when heís with his mates!

Is there an age when you can and cannot sing it in all itís glory?!

16 - 24, assuming there are no children under 11 around you...

I don't think there's a age for kids. There's a place. The place is where parents or people who know their parents can't hear them 😄

It's one of those situations I'd probably feel compelled to say 'you don't use those words in public' but inside I'd be thinking 'that's my boy'.

My 6 year old son sings it and replaces the swearing by saying bleeping 😂

Well, I'm 65 and I'm pretty sure I'll be singing it in Melbourne next Wednesday at the Oz branch Burns Supper.

If my unborn children don't sing it at birth I will be disappointed.

Would be disrespectful for anyone younger than the club involved to sing it.

I don't think it should be sung below the age of 2.

Or older than 90. So that is 90+2 covered. :wink:

I long for the day when it is sung at the end of every school assembly.

As this old favourite shows there's no real issues for the older generation - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0SaUn6Xgmrk

So we really just need to make sure the younger generation don't miss out on the fun, maybe we could use the term Bowler hat? its still a ludicrously dated part of the hun culture / tradition or whatever they are currently calling it.

My laddie is 8 and sings Janny instead of f**ny, other poop like that, and need a magic wand in the last line. I'm pretty sure he sings the right version if Im not in earshot.

My lads I'm sure know the words. They are 8 and 5.

But Warbuton is a "silly" and he wears a "silly hat".

And when he finds out the type of wand he needs to win the Scottish Cup, he needs a "magic wand".

Should be part of the core curriculum in Edinburgh primary schools.

If my first born isn't whistling it when emerging from the womb he or she is getting disowned on the spot.

Pretty sure kids at 10 k ow and use all the swears in the playground, I know I did. Just had to be a bit more careful around the parents.
Not really an answer but kids are kids and will swear, even if they don't know the meaning.

Example is circa 95 I was 8 and a chant of 'pussay pussay pussay' was ailment a rousset, which I joined in and then stood up and said meaaaaw....actually confused me for a few years as I seen calling him a cat as good thing 😂

I wouldn't be happy hearing my child use the "f" word until around the age of about 14 or 15 and even then it would only be at the football.

9 is far too young IMO but each to their own.

If they are old enough to speak they are old enough to sing the Warburton song.

My daughetr replaces the f word with a different word each week. I told her Fanny was American for bum so she is good to go. The Halliday song is sung to mucked it up.

Surely kids are encouraged to shout about the truth. Sing louder.

My daughter's words are

Warburton's a fanny
He wears a fanny's hat
It works against Dumbarton and other crap like that
But when he played the Hibees
and suddenly it dawned
To win the Scottish Cup he need a big, big wand

Fanny's all over the world are actually objecting to being referred to as a Warburton.

Sanitised version

The acceptable age to sing the Warburton song is whatever age you currently are.

What age ? Normally I'd be cautious but as it's Warburton I reckon it should be somewhere between the ages from no hair to grey hair.

Surely 16-90?
