Thank you very much.

0:01:530:01:56

-Thank you.

-Thank you.

0:01:560:01:59

-Good evening.

-Thank you.

-Good evening.

0:01:590:02:05

-Thank you very much.

-Welcome to the Morecambe and Wise Christmas show.

0:02:050:02:10

-First, we'd like to wish you all a very merry Christmas. Eric...

-Very, very, very merry Christmas.

0:02:100:02:18

-We've got a wonderful show for you.

-All the names up in lights.

-Wonderful scenery, costumes...

0:02:180:02:25

beautiful dancing girls. I've written a special play which I'm sure you'll enjoy.

0:02:250:02:32

-My play has glamour...

-Excuse me.

-Yes?

0:02:320:02:37

-One moment.

-Yes?

-Who's Mr Recambe?

0:02:370:02:41

-I haven't met Mr Recambe. Who's Mr Recambe, please?

-That's you.

0:02:410:02:48

But I'm not all there.

0:02:480:02:51

We all know that!

0:02:510:02:53

-Where's the "MO"?

-Why? Aren't you feeling very well?

0:02:550:03:00

-You know, MO - medical officer.

-Yes.

0:03:000:03:04

-It's that.

-Oh, I know what you mean!

-It's my name.

-You can see all mine.

-We won't go into that.

0:03:040:03:11

-It's a good job my name isn't Sussex.

-Why?

-It would have been Sex and Wise.

-Leave it to me.

0:03:110:03:19

I've never worked alone before.

0:03:190:03:22

-There you are.

-That'll do fine.

0:03:230:03:26

-MBE and Wise.

-I got an OBE, not an MBE.

-That's true.

-I'll do it.

0:03:260:03:33

Yeah, you fix it. I've never worked alone, you know.

0:03:330:03:38

-Ah, that's much better. Wait. There's one thing wrong.

-What?

0:03:380:03:43

There you are. Morecambe and Wiser because I am.

0:03:460:03:51

-You've almost got it right.

-Almost?

0:03:510:03:55

There we are.

0:03:550:03:58

APPLAUSE DROWNS HIS WORDS

0:04:020:04:06

Thank you.

0:04:070:04:10

-Well, it's lovely to be here. What guest stars do we have on the show?

-None.

-None?

0:04:100:04:17

-None.

-No guest stars at all?

-Nobody will work with us any more.

0:04:170:04:22

-There must be somebody needs the money.

-There's one fellow who'll work with us.

-Who?

-Elephant John.

0:04:220:04:30

-You mean ELTON John.

-Him. He was on our last Christmas show. He sang "All Sentimental" and got laughs.

0:04:300:04:37

-We don't want him. And he's too expensive.

-Yeah.

-How much does he want?

-£35 and two Luton players.

0:04:370:04:45

That's almost £50!

0:04:450:04:47

-No, we can't afford him.

-No.

0:04:490:04:52

-Anyway, I've fixed everything.

-Will you get rid of him?

-He won't be on the show.

-Let's get on.

-Wait.

0:04:520:04:59

-What?

-You mentioned Christmas.

-Yes.

-Well?

-What?

-Where's my little...?

0:04:590:05:05

-Oh, you mean, you want a Christmas present?

-If it's ready.

-All right.

0:05:050:05:10

-There's my credit card. You can have it for ten minutes.

-The shops are closed!

-Suit yourself!

0:05:100:05:18

-Hello.

-Hello.

-I'm Elton John. I'm here to do the Morecambe and Wise Show.

-They told me to give you this.

0:05:320:05:40

Oh. Thank you.

0:05:400:05:43

"Dear Elephant, Please go to..." Elephant?

0:05:430:05:48

"Please go to room 405."

0:05:480:05:51

Hm, 405.

0:05:510:05:53

-That's the fourth floor.

-Thank you.

0:05:530:05:56

LAUGHTER

0:06:090:06:11

Ladies and gentlemen, it's a time of change and change means progress.

0:06:120:06:18

What better time to change than the year of the Silver Jubilee.

0:06:180:06:23

Eric says it's 25 years since I opened my wallet!

0:06:230:06:27

-I've got a surprise for you...

-< Aw-w!

0:06:270:06:31

Aw-w!

0:06:310:06:34

-What?

-What's that?

-Ernie?

-Yeah?

0:06:340:06:37

-Have I ever told you a lie?

-No, never.

-It's a kitten.

0:06:370:06:42

-That's the first lie I've ever told you.

-No, it's a puppy. Is it a Christmas present?

0:06:420:06:49

-No, I got it from Multi-Coloured Swap Shop.

-A children's programme?

0:06:490:06:54

-I gave my wrong age over the phone.

-You swapped something for the puppy?

-Yes. I'll miss the wife.

0:06:540:07:02

We don't need jokes, you see, because everybody will go, "Ah-h!"

0:07:020:07:08

-Lovely little thing.

-Ah-h, yes. Is it a boy-dog?

-How can you tell?

0:07:080:07:13

-Don't you know?

-No.

-It's very simple. All you do is...

0:07:140:07:19

I've just had me tea!

0:07:210:07:23

-I'll do it if you will.

-I'm not going to do it.

-Let's have a look together.

-OK.

0:07:230:07:30

-Male.

-Female.

0:07:320:07:34

-Are you sure?

-No, I'm not.

-We'll have to wait another couple of months to find out.

0:07:350:07:43

-Well, this could be a long spot.

-What kind of a dog is it?

0:07:430:07:48

-A special one.

-Oh?

-A cross between a cocker spaniel and a poodle.

-What's that?

-A cock-a-doodle.

0:07:480:07:55

-If you analyse that one, it doesn't make sense.

-Could I...?

-What?

0:07:550:08:00

Certainly. There we are.

0:08:000:08:03

-Beautiful little thing, isn't it?

-Oh, lovely! Soft, warm tummy.

0:08:030:08:08

It's your age.

0:08:080:08:11

-You'd better take him back.

-Why?

-I'll get bitten all over.

-I thought we were staying at the same hotel.

0:08:110:08:19

Shall I get his trainer on? Young man, here we are.

0:08:190:08:24

-Thank you.

-Would you like to stroke it?

-Yes. Give him the dog.

0:08:240:08:29

Thank you very much.

0:08:290:08:32

And finally, the Department of the Environment has given the go-ahead for a group of students

0:08:380:08:45

to mount a major study into the lifestyle of the dolphin,

0:08:450:08:50

and one dolphin in particular called Beaky.

0:08:500:08:54

Over the last few years, scientists have become increasingly convinced

0:08:540:08:59

that it's the dolphin, not the ape, that bears the closest similarity to the intelligence of the human being.

0:08:590:09:07

That's it for now. I'll be back at 9 o'clock with the News At Ten. Oh!

0:09:070:09:12

APPLAUSE

0:09:130:09:15

-Thank you.

-Thank you very much.

0:09:190:09:22

-Now it's my great pleasure to introduce you to our guest star.

-A famous name?

-Yes.

-Let me guess.

0:09:230:09:31

-Give me a clue... The initials?

-AR.

0:09:310:09:34

-AR.

-AR.

0:09:340:09:36

-Got it.

-What?

-Arthur Askey.

0:09:360:09:39

-You're on, Arthur.

-No, don't be silly! It's a beautiful young lady.

0:09:400:09:45

She's been entertaining millions of viewers every Sunday night on television.

0:09:450:09:52

From Poldark, Angharad Rees.

0:09:520:09:55

APPLAUSE

0:09:550:09:57

Don't hang about, love. We're waiting for Angharad Rees to come on.

0:10:100:10:13

Angharad! Lovely to see you. Wonderful! Look at Eric. He's absolutely shattered.

0:10:140:10:21

-You're one of his favourites.

-Am I, Eric? I didn't know that.

0:10:210:10:27

-Good Lord.

-He's completely nonplussed. He's all embarrassed.

0:10:270:10:32

-It's lovely to have you on the show, Angharad.

-Thank you.

-Eric.

-Yes?

-Your hand.

-I've got another one here.

0:10:320:10:39

He's watched all of your series.

0:10:390:10:42

-I didn't know you were a fan, Eric.

-(Excuse me.)

0:10:420:10:46

I'll tell you something, Hand-grenade...

0:10:460:10:50

I was thrilled when I realised that you had escaped.

0:10:500:10:55

-Escaped?

-From Colditz.

0:10:550:10:58

-You blacked up and jumped over that fence.

-No, POLDARK.

0:10:580:11:03

-Oh. Poldark.

-So you watched every episode, Eric?

-Every one. With envy.

0:11:030:11:08

-Envy?

-I was envious of the man who played the part of your husband.

0:11:080:11:14

-Oh, you mean Ross.

-Yes, Ross. How is Edmundo, these days?

0:11:140:11:19

-The last time I saw him he had his maracas up in the air...

-That's not something to say to a lady.

0:11:190:11:26

-How about you, Ernie? Did you watch Cowpark?

-Coalpit.

-Poldark. NOT any more.

0:11:260:11:33

I saw one episode and I was deeply shocked to see you, a married woman, doing kissing with another man.

0:11:340:11:42

I was only acting.

0:11:420:11:45

They all say that.

0:11:450:11:48

-Let me try and explain.

-What?

-What?

0:11:480:11:52

-He went to war and came back injured. He was in the navy.

-I saw that part. He was a deck-hand on a submarine.

0:11:520:12:00

-But he went down well.

-Oh, good.

0:12:000:12:03

-He was in need of comfort so I put my arms around him like this.

-Yes?

0:12:030:12:09

And I ran my fingers through his hair like this.

0:12:090:12:14

Go on.

0:12:200:12:23

-I felt so sorry for him I held him close like this.

-Yes.

-Then I pressed my lips to his neck like this.

0:12:230:12:30

-Oh, yab-a-dab-a-doo! And then what happened?

-Nothing.

-They went into a cave.

-They didn't.

0:12:300:12:38

We always had a soft spot for sailors.

0:12:380:12:42

Ah-ha-ha!

0:12:420:12:44

There was a young sailor from Preston who ran down the M1 with no vest on.

0:12:440:12:51

-He was just outside Stoke when the big hairy blokes...

-That's not necessary.

-Right.

0:12:510:12:58

Miss Hang-glider...if you'd get changed for your part.

0:12:580:13:03

-Do I have something pretty to wear?

-If you like wellingtons, yes.

-There's a blue dress and a red one.

0:13:030:13:11

-Which one do I wear?

-The blue one. The red one's his.

0:13:110:13:15

Come back here!

0:13:160:13:19

Come back, you.

0:13:190:13:22

-She's beautiful.

-Oh, beautiful.

0:13:230:13:26

-Absolutely gorgeous.

-Well?

0:13:260:13:29

-I want to know...

-Yes?

-We're doing a scene with her?

-Yes.

-I get her in the end?

-You have your way with her.

0:13:290:13:37

-It's all yours.

-Yes.

-She's madly in love with you. All you do is come on when I give you the cue.

0:13:370:13:44

And the cue is?

0:13:440:13:47

What was the cue?

0:13:470:13:50

I didn't hear the flaming cue, Ern!

0:13:500:13:52

Ah, my dear.

0:14:130:14:16

-Some tulips for you.

-Oh, thank you!

0:14:160:14:19

You must be freezing. I'll just give it a bit of a puff.

0:14:190:14:24

-I'll go and pour you a nice warm drink, my dear.

-Thank you.

0:14:240:14:29

Oh, the weather!

0:14:350:14:38

Oh, it's cold. This'll warm the cockles of ye heart.

0:14:400:14:45

But ye don't want to catch a cold.

0:14:450:14:47

AH-H-TCHOO !

0:14:480:14:51

I'm sorry about that. I didn't realise your cat had been run over.

0:14:510:14:56

-What are you doing here? I wish to be alone with this young lady.

-Sire, it be FREEZING out there.

0:14:560:15:04

-We know how to keep one another warm.

-But I need a YOUNG man.

-He's well past his sell-by date.

0:15:040:15:11

-Would you please get out?

-Sire,

0:15:110:15:13

it's so cold out there, they're laying men off at the brass foundry.

0:15:130:15:20

-And I must get to Truro.

-You cannot go to Scotland in this weather.

0:15:200:15:25

-YOU are going out in that snow and you're going out there NOW.

-Scotland?

0:15:250:15:32

Oh, Eve, never leave.

0:15:340:15:37

What are you...?!

0:15:370:15:40

-I do get her in the end, don't I?

-You make love to her when I give you the cue.

-And the cue is?

0:15:400:15:48

-MUMBLES SOMETHING

-You sound foreign to me!

0:15:480:15:52

-My dear, would you care to sit down?

-Thank you.

0:15:550:15:59

How would you like a romantic interlope with the most beautiful, handsome, virile lover

0:16:060:16:13

in the whole of Cornshire?

0:16:130:16:16

-OK. But if he's not here in ten minutes, I'm leaving.

-Please!

0:16:160:16:21

BAND PLAYS INTRODUCTION TO A SONG

ORCHESTRA PLAYS "That's Entertainment"

0:17:530:17:58

Tea, Ern.

0:19:090:19:12

Tea-urn! That's a belter, that. I haven't done that one for years.

0:19:150:19:20

-That's one for the archives, that.

-It should be IN the archives.

0:19:200:19:25

You've done it for a million years.

0:19:250:19:28

That's the job finished now.

0:19:290:19:32

Just the one wallet in that crate, is there?

0:19:320:19:36

-Do we have to leave?

-We have to progress in this world.

0:19:390:19:44

The new place is beautiful. It's better than here and much cheaper than this dump.

0:19:440:19:52

Is it?

0:19:520:19:54

-When will the van be here?

-Soon as the doctor's signed the certificate.

0:19:540:19:59

-Tell you what.

-What?

-We've had a few laughs here.

-We have.

0:19:590:20:04

-Remember we used to talk about Aston Street school.

-I forget.

0:20:040:20:10

You always said that when I said Aston Street school. Was that on account of...Miss?

0:20:100:20:18

Nothing to do with Miss.

0:20:180:20:21

Nothing at all.

0:20:210:20:24

You never did tell me. Why did she keep you in?

0:20:240:20:29

-Every night she kept you in after school.

-Forget it!

0:20:290:20:32

Tell me. Go on. I'm your friend.

0:20:330:20:36

If you think I'm gonna stand here and talk about such a little thing, you're mistaken.

0:20:360:20:43

I don't want to know what she said, just why she kept you in.

0:20:430:20:48

-I was only ten. How do you expect me to remember what happened 20 years ago?

-I shouldn't have asked.

0:20:480:20:56

-We must look to the future today, not the past. We must progress.

-SIREN

0:20:560:21:02

-Is that an ambulance?

-No, it was Shaw Taylor going home for lunch.

0:21:020:21:08

-Hey, I remember the first time you ever stuck your head out this window.

-When was that?

0:21:100:21:17

It was blowing a gale. It blew your wig off.

0:21:170:21:23

It landed in that garden. An old lady gave it a saucer of milk.

0:21:230:21:29

I remember that.

0:21:290:21:31

Will you come away from that window? People'll think we've got double-glazing.

0:21:310:21:38

-Eric?

-You've got a good memory for names.

0:21:410:21:45

I'll talk to you.

0:21:450:21:48

-I've known you a long time.

-I know.

-And I know what's worrying you.

-What?

-Fear.

0:21:480:21:55

-Fear?

-Yes.

-Fear of what?

-Fear of change.

-I'm not frightened of change.

-You're not?

0:21:550:22:02

-I watch News at Ten.

-What?

-I like to see Reginald Bosanquet's hair change colour after the commercial.

0:22:020:22:10

-Do we have to leave, Ern?

-The new place is much better and cheaper.

0:22:100:22:16

Cast your baby-blue eyes over that, my boy.

0:22:180:22:23

-It's a beautiful home.

-Yes.

-Whose is it?

-Ours! That's the one we're getting.

-Do me a favour!

0:22:230:22:30

-Yeah!

-That's almost a stately home.

-Built by Wren.

-Eh?

-Built by Wren.

0:22:300:22:36

How a tiny little bird can carry all these bricks I'll never know.

0:22:360:22:41

-Lord Nel...

-Hey.

-What?

-What?

-Lord Nelson stayed there.

-With David Hamilton?

0:22:410:22:48

-LADY Hamilton.

-Is there a difference?

0:22:480:22:53

-Look at that!

-Yeah.

-It's got a TV aerial.

-Lord Nelson had it rewired before he left.

0:22:530:23:00

Oh.

0:23:000:23:02

-It's built in the classical style.

Be careful with him. He's in there.

0:23:390:23:42

Thanks a lot, boys. There'll be no tips. You've been warned, have you?

0:23:420:23:47

-Thank you very much.

-Oh, he got a pat on the back, did he?

-Yeah.

0:23:470:23:53

-Ah, well, that's it, then.

-Yeah. But don't upset yourself.

0:23:540:24:00

-Don't upset yourself. You'll get me going.

-I think the car's arrived. Shall I wait for you downstairs?

0:24:010:24:09

-Tell you what, you wait for me downstairs.

-OK.

0:24:090:24:13

-Oh, a knock-out, that.

0:33:410:33:48

-You play Cyrano de Bergerac.

-Thanks a lot.

-This is what I want you to do.

0:33:480:33:55

-LAUGHTER

-What?

0:33:550:33:59

You've got to learn a lot of poetry. "I am Cyrano de Bergerac. I've got this big nose."

0:33:590:34:06

-Ladies and gentlemen!

-Ladies and gentlemen, I can't believe it.

0:34:060:34:12

-Good Lord! Isn't this wonderful!

-Your friend and mine, Mr Francis Matthews!

0:34:120:34:19

-Are you looking forward to the show?

-Oh, immensely!

-Good.

0:34:190:34:23

-Well, I'm looking forward to it.

-Good.

-ERIC SNORES

0:34:230:34:29

-Well, I'm looking.

-Yes.

-I need the money.

-Well, you play Count de Basie.

0:34:290:34:36

-A one-two-three-four.

-I think he'll be very good.

-One of the finest men you've had.

-He'll be excellent.

0:34:360:34:43

-Eric!

-Yes?

-Are you partaking of intoxicating liquor?

-No. Rheumatism. I can't bend my elbow.

0:34:430:34:51

-I can't do that. Not with that arm.

-No.

-I can't with that arm either.

0:34:510:34:56

-Francis, have you read my play?

-No. My wife read it to me in bed.

0:34:560:35:01

It's funny you should say that. My wife and I have reached that stage as well.

0:35:010:35:08

-You can't have everything in life...and I never did.

-What did your wife...?

0:35:080:35:15

-What did...?

-That was an extra one.

-Did your wife like my play?

0:35:150:35:20

-She said if I took part in it I'd be demeaning myself.

-Isn't that nice?

-He's doing it again!

0:35:200:35:28

-Francis, are you a hard drinker?

-No, I find it very easy.

-I wish I'd thought of that.

0:35:280:35:35

-If I could tell you about my play. It's an historical play.

-Why are we doing it on a...?

-Why is your speech slurred?

-The floor's slippery.

-This is not a revolving stage!

-It feels like it.

0:35:510:35:58

-Slippery! Did you hear that? Hello!

-Let me get on.

-I'm ready when you are.

-That's the spirit.

Penelope, it's great to have you on the show. We're really thrilled, aren't we, Eric?

0:37:020:37:09

Thank you very much, Kermit.

0:37:090:37:12

It's like being on the puppet show.

0:37:150:37:18

Muppet!

0:37:190:37:21

No, dear, puppet.

0:37:210:37:24

-Penelope, it is a unique honour...

-I'd rather you didn't kiss my hand. It's frightfully unhygienic.

0:37:240:37:31

Well, that's put the blocks on what I had in mind.

0:37:310:37:36

If you do this show, if you do his play, you would end up in the series.

0:37:370:37:44

-I'm in a series.

-Two minutes with me and you've got your own series! Can I introduce you...?

-I know him.

0:37:440:37:52

How are you, Derek?

0:37:520:37:54

-About your play, Mr Wise...

-Ah, yes. It's a sad, romantic play.

0:37:570:38:02

-It's about the beautiful Roxanne and a poet who's madly in love with her, a fellow with a big hooter.

-Ah.

0:38:020:38:10

That part's going to be played by Derek?

0:38:100:38:14

-She keeps calling me Derek!

-It will be an honour to work with you, Derek.

0:38:140:38:19

It's a pleasure and an honour to work with you, Penelope.

0:38:190:38:24

-Have you seen any of my plays on television?

-I did once catch a tiny glimpse of one of your plays.

0:38:240:38:32

-I'm afraid I found it rather violent.

-Violent ?!

0:38:320:38:37

-What do you mean?

-It was just a tiny glimpse, you see, and all I saw was this.

0:38:370:38:44

-HE does that to ME.

-Oh, yes.

0:38:460:38:49

I see. So perhaps... had some meaning, Derek?

0:38:490:38:53

She's hitting me and calling me Derek now.

0:38:530:38:57

-I couldn't understand what slapping Derek's face had to do with the play.

-My name is Eric.

0:38:570:39:05

Oh, I AM sorry, Mr Moron. All I saw was...

0:39:050:39:09

-Don't! No!

-You could be right.

-Be nice to the lady.

0:39:120:39:16

-Be nice and charming. She's a lady.

-I will.

-About my play, Penelope...

-I don't want to do it.

0:39:160:39:24

You don't want to...

0:39:270:39:29

-I want to do what the other lady stars did, like Vanessa Redgrave and Glenda Jackson.

-We're past that age.

0:39:290:39:37

-My legs have gone.

-His legs have gone.

-No...

-Well, one of them has.

0:39:370:39:42

-I want to walk down a staircase, a very glamorous staircase.

-Ah!

-Ah!

-That could be.

-No.

0:39:420:39:49

-Have we got a cairstase?

-We haven't got a staircase.

-We could get you a staircase later.

-It can be arranged.

0:39:490:39:57

If you will do my play, then you can walk down the stairs like the Hollywood stars. OK?

0:39:570:40:04

-If I do your play, it will cost you extra money.

-Ah.

-It's a bit difficult.

-Got some up there?

-No.

0:40:040:40:11

-Extra money, well... You see this fiver?

-Yes.

-After you've done my play, I'll show it to you again.

0:40:110:40:19

-We can't be fairer than that.

-Then I walk down the staircase?

-Ready when you are.

-Come this way.

0:40:190:40:26

Come along, Derek.

-I don't like him.

-No.

-He made fun of my nose.

-Don't let him do that.

0:43:070:43:12

If it wasn't for this I'd be able to tell Roxanne how much I love her.

0:43:120:43:19

-I can't believe it. He also loves Roxanne.

-Yes, I know.

0:43:190:43:26

-Go and get the tickets.

-Leave him alone.

0:43:270:43:32

What have you got for me?

0:43:330:43:36

-I've got two in the circle.

-I had noticed.

0:43:360:43:40

-I could let you have one in the stalls.

-They all say that!

0:43:400:43:45

-I can give you two in a box.

-There's a novelty.

-Hurry up!

My words give the ladies a thrill. And now I'd like your assistance 'cos my nose is stuck in this grill.

0:43:570:44:04

Then why has he shoved it up his bugle?

-It is a French horn. He 'as to play it with 'is 'and up it.

-Oh, I see.

0:44:590:45:04

-I'm not the meter reader. Remember, I was at the theatre last night?

-Mademoiselle, I don't know how to say I love you!

-Try.

-Try?

-I love Roxanne! I'll have your life.

0:47:140:47:22

You won't. I haven't finished with it yet!

Madame, you're beautiful.

0:48:330:48:35

Just how did your nose get so long?

0:48:400:48:43

It was where my nanny used to lift me out of the bath.

0:48:430:48:48

It could have been worse.

0:48:480:48:50

Or better.

0:48:550:48:58

-I'm ready when you are, Mr Wilkinson.

0:49:180:49:26

-You long-nosed fool!

-NOBODY calls me a long-nosed fool.

-Don't let him insult your conk.

0:49:260:49:33

-Nobody insults this and gets away with it.

-NOBODY makes nasty remarks about his snitch.

-Yes.

0:49:330:49:40

-You must have satisfaction.

-You're very kind but I'll see to him first.

-I'll deal with this Nancy-boy.

0:49:400:49:47

-Certainly.

0:50:120:50:15

Oh-h!

0:50:150:50:17

-Mademoiselle, I throw myself at your feet.

-I should like that.

0:50:190:50:24

It's not fair. He'd be there before me.

0:50:240:50:27

-Are you looking at my legs?

-No. I'm above that.

0:50:270:50:32

-You're too late.

-They've all gone. The show's over. The one with the glasses was marvellous!

1:01:481:01:55

I liked the little one. They didn't do one joke about Des O'Connor.

1:01:551:02:00

-But they promised me I was going to be on the show.

-Oh, well, take it up with them.

1:02:001:02:07

-I was going to do a new song.

-Really?

1:02:071:02:11

-They wouldn't do that to me, would they?

-I don't know them that well.

-We just clean, you see.

1:02:111:02:18

Well, I might as well do it. Do you want to hear a song?

1:02:181:02:23

-I've been all over the place.

1:03:101:03:18

-#

-But as hard as I try

1:04:061:04:13

1:04:161:04:22

-#

-That I've seen in your eyes

1:04:221:04:27

-Though we took our love so daringly

1:05:001:05:05

-#

-And gave it up uncaringly

1:05:051:05:11
