  1. My understanding was that it was “loop-de-loo”. Mists of time now, so not insisting on it.

  2. I was an adult by the time that these were created. I gave away my TV in 1965 so that my children were not subjected to BBC and ITV propaganda. {I could see, then, how things were going.}

  4. "The chorus of the song is taken almost in whole from the popular folk song or children's song, known by many variant names, including 'Here we go Loop de Loop.' A version the folk song appeared as early as 1849 in James Orchard Halliwell-Phillipps' Popular Rhymes and Nursery Tales, as 'Dancing Looby.'"
