I'm Walking Backwards (2008 vs 1956)

This video reminded me of The Goons:

Spike Milligan (comedian, and member of The Goon Show with Peter Sellers and Harry Secombe) had an amusing ditty that would sometimes be played between acts in the radio show. I sometimes sing it to myself as I trudge to work. It went something like this:

I'm walking backwards for Christmas,
Across the Irish Sea,
I'm walking backwards for Christmas,
It's the only thing for me.

I've tried walking sideways,
And walking to the front,
But people just look at me,
And say it's a publicity stunt.
