Petula Clark – England Swings lyrics

(Roger Miller)

Chorus:
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 fin'ly 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

Chorus

Mummy's old pajamas and your daddy's mustache
Falling out the windowsill, 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

Chorus
(repeat and fade out)
