England Swings...

Here's a blast from the past

England Swings by Roger Miller
Why am I playing this on a Saturday?

Yesterday, in town waiting for a bus to bring me home, I saw two of our Adelaide Police Officers, in full uniform, with helmets, riding bicycles along King William Street.
Cops on the beat, an easily seen police presence, that's what I like to see.
Anyway, seeing them straight away brought "bobbies on bicycles two by two" to mind and the song is still rocking around in my head.
So I thought I'd share this earworm with you all. 😎

  1. Definite ear worm - as soon as I saw the title of the post in my feed I started singing this song, and there it was - GMTA (Ing-a ling swings...)

  6. Earworm time. But a good earworm. And how nice to see police on the beat. And not just doing drive-bys.

    1. Elephant's Child; I imagine the drive-bys will be back in winter, now I think they may just be because of all the extra people here for the February Fringe Festival then the Mad March things in town. But I hope they see it is a good thing to have more police on the beat and keep it up.
      Roger Miller is an easy earworm, better than something you hate being in your head.

    1. Andrew; I'm glad you remember this. I like my songs on the short side, too many these days just go on and on.

  8. Roger Miller. Amen. I used to know every word of King of the Road, and belt it at the top of my lungs.

    1. Joanne; I used to sing along, but I've never belted anything at the top of my lungs. I don't seem to be able to, not without a coughing fit. Probably for the best, no one needs to hear my screeching.

  9. I agree more cops on the beat are needed.
    I like the song too.

    1. Merle; definitely need more cops on the beat. Remember way back when we were kids and there'd be cops walking in pairs around the city? And in suburbs too. That's what we need again.
