0:36:200:36:22

Ahem!

0:36:250:36:27

# When Haggen Schmidt ran second in the Derby last July

0:36:290:36:32

# I was standing at the corner of the street

0:36:320:36:36

# And a fellow dressed in uniform could easily see that I

0:36:360:36:39

# Was standing at the corner of the street

0:36:390:36:42

# He treated me and told me that the country needed men

0:36:420:36:46

# In lifeguard's clothes, he said I'd look a treat

0:36:460:36:49

# And he gave to me a shilling so I signed my name and then

0:36:490:36:53

# I was standing at the corner of the street

0:36:530:36:55

# And for standing at the corner of the street

0:36:560:37:00

# They dressed me up with spurs upon my feet

0:37:000:37:02

# They put me on this horse's back to teach me 'ow to ride

0:37:040:37:07

# When I fell off, the riding master came to me and cried

0:37:070:37:11

# "However did you come to be a soldier?" I replied,

0:37:110:37:14

# "I was standing at the corner of the street"

0:37:140:37:17

# Now once when I was quite a lad, instead of going to school, I was...

0:37:220:37:25

-AUDIENCE:

-# Standing at the corner of the street

0:37:250:37:28

# I landed there at ten o'clock I'd made it quite a rule to be...

0:37:300:37:34

# Standing at the corner of the street

0:37:340:37:36

# One day, my teacher caught me I fair trembled at the knees

0:37:360:37:40

# "You're late again!" Then he kicked me with 'is feet

0:37:400:37:43

# "Pray, tell me the reason"

0:37:440:37:45

# So, I of course replied

0:37:450:37:47

# "I was standing at the corner of the street"

0:37:470:37:51

# And for standing at the corner of the street

0:37:510:37:54

# "In store for you, me lad, you've got a treat"

0:37:550:37:57

# Then 'e laid me on a form and with his cane, he gave a frown

0:37:590:38:02

# He put some stripes across me pants

0:38:020:38:04

# They were pink, red, white and brown

0:38:040:38:06

# And after that, for many a day, instead of sitting down

0:38:060:38:09

# I was standing at the corner of the street. #

0:38:090:38:12

Right!

0:38:120:38:14

# Now, the other day, as usual, instead of going a walk, I was...

0:38:170:38:20

# Standing at the corner of the street

0:38:200:38:22

# And two men come running up to me, their faces white as chalk, I was...

0:38:240:38:28

# Standing at the corner of the street

0:38:280:38:30

# They said a bull has just escaped He's absolutely mad

0:38:310:38:35

# He's knocked a dozen policemen off their feet

0:38:350:38:38

# There's only one man strong enough to catch that bull, they cried

0:38:380:38:41

# And he's

0:38:410:38:43

# Standing at the corner of the street

0:38:430:38:46

# Well, I was standing at the corner of the street

0:38:460:38:49

# I said, "We'll soon stop his retreat"

0:38:500:38:52

# Now one of you stand 'ere like this and show him something red

0:38:540:38:57

# The other one must grab 'is horns and 'old on to 'is 'ead

0:38:570:39:01

# They both said, "Where will you be?" so I turned round and said,

0:39:010:39:05

# "I'll be standing at the corner of the street." #

0:39:490:39:51

# Down the street there lives a man I'd like you all to know

0:39:560:39:59

# He grew a great big marrow for the local flower show

0:39:590:40:03

# When the story got around, they came from far and wide

0:40:030:40:06

# And when the people saw the marrow, everybody cried

0:40:060:40:11

0:40:450:40:50

Put me off my stroke there with my dainty footwork.

0:40:510:40:53

# He was leaning on the garden gate the other day

0:40:560:40:59

# And he beckoned to a lady who lived just across the way

0:40:590:41:03

# He took her down the garden path and showed it her with pride

0:41:030:41:06

-# And when she saw the size of it...

-THEY LAUGH
