GUEST,CJB ADD: Round & Round Went Great Big Wheel- Engineer (13) Lyr Add: Round And Round Went The Great Big Wheel 17 Jul 17


Funny how you stumble upon a gem ...

Researching missing eps of Dad's Army this site

http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Series/DadsArmy

has a reference to an ep. entitled:

"Round And Round Went The Great Big Wheel"

* Getting Crap Past the [Beeb's] Radar: Barely even trying. In the episode "The Four-and-a-Half Feathers", Jones describes his patrol in the Sudan encountering an elderly fakir (a sort of monk, pronounced "fa-keer"). Jones constantly refers to him as the "Old Fakir" (pronouncing it as "fak-er"). Say it out loud and wonder how that made it past the censors...

** And at least one episode title. "Round And Round Went The Great Big Wheel" is a quote from a really filthy song.

This is it ...

But what's the tune, and does anyone perform it?!!!
