Description

This bit of pop nonsense was released in Australia in April 1968 on a Festival 45, FK2281.
It was, in fact, buried away as the flip side of "Hector The Trash Collector", which I've also uploaded to YouTube.
This side is a parody of the Napoleon XIV novelty classic, "They're Coming To Take Me Away".
The A side briefly charted in Frankie's home town of Melbourne, but I don't recall ever hearing this side on the radio...in fact, it came as a nice surprise when I found it tucked away as a B. side.
Now it's here for you to enjoy, as well.
NOTE: At the time of uploading, I don't have access to the 45, so I've used a label scan of the NZ release, courtesy of 45Cat.
