TOWN OF WOY WOY



Spike Milligan lived in Woy Woy (south of Newcastle). He was a star of the Goon Show (BBC).
From his book of Silly Verse for Kids:
In the Land of Bumbley Boo You can buy Lemon pie at the Zoo;
They give away Foxes
In little Pink Boxes
And bottles of Dandylion Stew....
Puffin Books 1968.
