Just shows how long ago I lived in the country. The bench seat at the back 
was the best place! The conductors always visted upstairs in case there was 
under-age smoking on the upper deck!

(All this will be strange to our American cousins who will have never enjoyed 
the delights of double decker buses with 4-person bench seats upstairs.)

Musical content:- "Don't Do That To The Poor Puss Cat"  - Leslie Sarony 1928

Musical question:- Are our American cousins the only people who could combine 
"The Birdie Song" and 'God Bless America' into the same medley as witnessed 
during my Floridian trip?
