Rolling Around Piccadilly-1926
 Edison Bell/Winner 4437 Hargreaves/Damerell

Now I have got a story, and believe me folks it's true
So if you listen for a while, Ill tell my tale to you.
Now if you go to London, there's a thing you mustn't miss.
Its quite a simple matter, all you have to do is this.

Go running round the fountains in Trafalgar Square
That's the thing that everybody's doing down there.
Just take a peep into the Palace yard
Youll find all the gates are locked and barred.
And the soldiers that should be on guard
Are running round the fountains in Trafalgar Square.

And then theres Madam Tussauds, thats a well-known waxworks show
Now thats the place where all the country trippers like to go.
The figures that you heard about now theyre no longer there.
There's only one place you will find them, I will tell you, where

They're running round the fountains in Trafalgar Square
That's the thing that everybody's doing down there.
Henry the Eighth, chasing Anne Boleyn
Old Dr. Crippin looking haggard and thin.
And Charlie Peace with his old violin
Are running round the fountains in Trafalgar Square.

Now when I took a trip to London some few weeks ago
To see the House of Parliament, thought Id like to go
The Speaker simply looked at me with such an icy stare
I said, "Wheres the others?" and he said "Ill tell you where,
Theyre running round the fountains in Trafalgar Square.

That's the thing that everybody's doing down there.
Lloyd George, Baldwin, dear old Ramsey Mac
Early every morning you will find them on the track
With Lady Astor, June and Amy Johnson at the back
Theyre running round the fountains in Trafalgar Square.

Running round the fountains in Trafalgar Square
That's the thing that everybody's doing down there.
Its the finest sport in all the land, when youve tried it youll understand.
Thats why Jack Hylton and his band
Go running round the fountains in Trafalgar Square.
