England Swings

England Swings
(Roger Miller)

CHO: 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 finally 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 ya where to go. Go to England. Oh

Mama's old pajamas and your papa's mustache.
Fallin' out the windowsill, frolic in the grass.
Tryin' to mock the way they talk, fun, but all in vain.
Gapin' at the dapper men with derby hats and cane.
