Up and down for the roundabout rabbit
- Up and down --> to bob = to move up and down --> Bob
- Roundabout Rabbit --> The Magic Roundabout was a tv show for kids --> there's a rabbit in it and it's called Dylan in the English version ;)
So, Bob Dylan ;)

Yes, it's got to be Lily Allen, brilliant!
(And to think I [!] failed to come up with "lily"... *headdesk(again)*)

But I don't get
3 Carry on at a Scottish dance = Reel 2 Real
"Reel" because of the Carry On movies?
erm, anyone care to explain the second part?

The only thing I could come up with that it could be something-"Fling"-something (I just googled "The Reel Fling" and it seems to be a local Glaswegian Ceilidh band, lol, so "Reel 2 Real" is more likely, I guess?)

P.S.:
38 Initial state of exalted feeling - The Rapture???

A Scottish Dance can be a "Reel" (often put together with Jig, Jigs & Reels) if you are carrying on you could be going from one reel to the next, i.e going from Reel to Reel, is my thinking, wasn't too sure of the spelling think they had a hit with "I like to move it"
