Subject: RE: Which BBC Schools Broadcast around 1966
I have known the tune since the early 50's ? when another song was popular with a chorus of:

I want to be near you. You're the one for me, for me.
I want to be near you. You're the one for me

It is now apparently quite commonly played with a "singing call" for square dances.
