La La

Single on Columbia, May 1969.

The Flying Circus: Sydney band, formed in 1968, that also worked in Canada from the early 70s (not to be confused, though, with the Canadian band called The Flying Circus).

No connection with Monty Python's Flying Circus: the name appears to be a coincidence.

The Flying Circus also had a hit with Hayride, also written by Buzz Cason & Mac Gayden.
