England Swings (Like a Pendulum Do) - Roger Miller/Patty Duke/The Robert DeCormier Singers/The Village Stompers/Connie Francis/Bobby Brooks

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 England, 'cause


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, oh
