Culture Notes

Peeking at the internet, I am surprised to learn that the lyrics for You Need Feet, the urbane and sophisticated Bernard Bresslaw song, are hard to find .

So, here is the song's chorus. :)

You need feet to stand up straight with
You need feet to kick your friends
You need feet to keep your socks on
...and stop your legs from fraying at the end!

You need feet to walk to Scunthorpe
Or to dance the Hootchy-Koo
Yes, the whole world needs feet for something
--And I need feet to run away from you!

"Yes folks, feet are not to be sniffed at!"

Amazingly, it seems that the Beach Boys may have done a partial cover of the song.
