SWINGING ON A GATE (Harry Hemsley) Harry Hemsley (as the voice of Winnie) - c.1934 I wish I was a little boy But then you see I'm not I'm very fond of little boys I know an awful lot I like the sort of games they play I think they're really great But the game that I like playing best Is swinging on a gate Swinging on a gate With a lot of boys Swinging on the gate Don't we make a noise Nurse is very cross 'Cause I come home late Says I is a naughty girl ("Winnie! Winnie") For swinging on a gate CHILDREN's VOICES: ("Hello - here's a gate") ("Ooh it's a bit like...........isn't it") ("I'm on first") ("No, no, I'm on first") ("Don't push") ("I'm not pushing") ("Now we're off!") MAN'S VOICE: ("Oi! Get off that gate, do you hear me?") I don't care much for little girls They never make a noise I like to shout and holler out That's why I'm with the boys I hold right on climbing trees And bird-nesting I hate The game that I like playing best Is swinging on a gate Swinging on a gate With a lot of boys Swinging on the gate Don't we make a noise Nurse is very cross 'Cause I come home late Says I is a naughty girl ("Winnie! Winnie") For swinging on a gate (Instrumental Break) Swinging on a gate With a lot of boys Swinging on the gate Don't we make a noise Nurse is very cross 'Cause I come home late Says I is a naughty girl ("Winnie! Winnie") For swinging on a gate TRIVIA: "Winnie" in the song is one of his imaginary family that featured in Harry Hemsley's BBC Radio broadcasts.
