England swings

England swings like a pendulum do,

Bobbies on bicycles, two by two,
Westminster Abbey the tower of Big Ben,
The rosy red cheeks of the little children.

Now, if you huff and puff and you fina'lly save enough
Money up to take your family on a trip across the sea,
Take a tip before you take your trip; let me tell you where to go,
Go to Engeland, Oh;

Mama's old pajamas and your papa's mustache,
Falling out the window sill, frolic in the grass,
Tryin' to mock the way they talk fun but all in vain,
Gaping at the dapper men with derby hats and canes...

  1. What a perky post! I feel a bit better just looking at the photo!

  2. UNBELIEVABLE!!!...because I did not even scroll down when I said that yesterday...I just came to your Friday's post straight from my "dashboard" and I don't even think the others were on the page. That's just a little weird. I'm scaring myself. But funny, nevertheless! LOVE the pic! AND the song. I guess I've been humming it every since I commented.
    ;^) Thanks for obliging my thought processes, CJ.
