Ah. So, not the '80s singer. Good, because now "Goody Two Shoes" is stuck in my head. AAAAGH.

No, c_b, take a look at 82's link :)I am now, however, going to be earwormed for quite a while. Naturally.
Sarra... do you mean the '80s singer? Isn't it Adam Ant? (formerly Adam and the Ants)
I was going to mention Atom Ant, too!

agreed with rolig here. I'd use at 'em rather than adam.Ha--interesting thread popped up when I searched the web for "up and adam" as a phrase:http://www.phrases.org.uk/bulletin_board/19/messages/169.html

Shouldn't this be "up and at 'em"? At least that is how I have always heard it.
