Thread Name: BS: Origin and meaning of 'swanging'
Subject: RE: BS: Origin and meaning of 'swanging'
The Rollers!!! Thanks for the blast from the past. Maybe it does just mean swinging, could it be the scottish accent?
But lest not forget they also gave us the "shang-a-lang", I don't think that meant anything too precise.
They were produced, in part by the acclaimed Phil Coulter, think he also wrote a couple for them...but not sure on that one.
Having spent alot of my pre-pubescent years with a tartan scarf dangling from my arm, I am intrigued as to why you have mentioned them?
