Billy the Bus Lyr Req: Boomps-a-Daisy (Annette Mills) (36) Lyr Add: BOOMPS-A-DAISY 06 Jul 04

G'day GUEST Pete,

I guess the song you are looking for is Hands knees and Boomps-a-Daisy. I remember doing the song and dance when I was a kid in the 50s, but though the tune is still with me, my lonely brain cell can't recall the details. A Google search on "Boomps-a-Daisy" brought up sevral discographis with the song included, and the following verse.

Hands knees and Boomps-a-Daisy!
I like a bustle that bends
Hands knees and Boomps-a-Daisy!
What is a boomp between friends?
Hands knees now don't be lazy
let's make the party a WoW!
And it's hands knees and Boomps-a-Daisy!
Turn to your partner and bow - Bow Wow!

Alas, the 'intermediate' lines don't ring a bell, or prtod my memory - but it does fit the tune and theme I remember. All I recall of the dance is on HANDS you clap, on KNEES slap said item of anaotmy on BOOMPS bend over, sticking your bottom out as far as possible.

Undoubtedly some of our more erudite 'Catters' will come up with more help.

Cheers - Sam
