Welcome to Teapot Tuesday
the Sisterhood of the Traveling Teaparty
and challenge #245
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 fina'lly 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 Engeland, Oh;
Mama's old pajamas and your papa's mustache,
Falling out the window sill, 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
Listen for the surprise lyrics...

Did you hear them?
April 9th celebrates Winston Churchill as the First Honorary US Citizen and so we are celebrating everything British.
Bring anything British: London Bridge, English gardens, tea, crumpets, fancy hats, castles, or Beatles but if you bring Mamas in pajamas it's the back door for you.
if you bring dancing Bobbies.
