Does anyone know the rest of this song, or its title?:

"There is a stream where the swans do glide, I go there every day, and watch the last little one lag behind who has not felt that way"

I taped it from the radio some years ago and have since mangled the tape. It was sung by a group with a fairly fast, lively tempo.

Thank you.

Down the stream the swans all glide,
It's quite the cheapest way to ride.
Their legs get wet,
Their tummies wetter;
I think after all
The bus is better.

Spike Milligan.

No?

I've un-mangled some of the tape to be able find this - does it ring any bells with anyone?

White Swans on the River

There is a stream where the swans do glide, I go there every day
And watch the last little one that lags behind who has not felt that way
And if its time to fly, to fly, its time to fly, to fly
Hey swan, which one, that's to fly, that's to fly today.

Chorus

White swans on the river, the river's running to the sea
If God gave me a pair of wings I would fly away, I would fly away


Unkind sadness is more or less, a now and then thing
So if I float on a happy note xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx
Since you life has crossed with mine and I sure could use some of your time
Hey, hey which way shall we fly,shall we fly today


And one morning I will awake to find they've flown away
A south direction will carry their white wings, the winds will carry their white way
Xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx xxxx
Hey swan, which one, that's to fly, that's to fly today.

Thanks,

Ralph.

"White Swans" is by the band Frogmorton, and is in the album At Last.

I found a few cuts from the Frogmorton At Last album on YouTube, but not "White Swans." Can anybody find it?

Wow, we partially taped this song from the radio late one night in the 70s but have never been able to identity it. THANK YOU!!
