# I wonder why I always sigh the way I do

0:03:150:03:21

# And now it seems that all my dreams are all of you

0:03:210:03:25

# You used to be so nice to me in days gone by

0:03:270:03:31

# But all that now has changed somehow

0:03:310:03:36

# I wonder why

0:03:360:03:41

# You called me Baby Doll a year ago

0:03:410:03:47

# You told me I was very nice to know

0:03:500:03:55

# I soon learned what love was

0:03:560:04:00

# I thought I knew

0:04:000:04:04

# But all I've learned has only taught me how to love you

0:04:040:04:11

# You made me think you loved me in return

0:04:130:04:19

# Don't tell me you were fooling after all

0:04:190:04:26

# For if you go away

0:04:260:04:30

# You'll be sorry someday

0:04:300:04:35

# You left behind a broken doll

0:04:350:04:43

# You called me Baby Doll a year ago

0:04:470:04:52

# Year ago, year ago, year ago

0:04:520:04:55

0:05:000:05:03

# I soon learned what love was

0:05:030:05:07

0:05:170:05:23

# In return, in return, in return

0:05:230:05:27

# Don't tell me you were fooling after all

0:05:270:05:34

# For if you go away

0:05:340:05:38

# Jere-Jeremiah, my heart is on fire

0:05:510:05:58

# Play again that sweet refrain

0:05:580:06:01

# Um-tarara, um-tarara

0:06:010:06:05

# Jere-Jeremiah, it's the finest tune I've known

0:06:050:06:12

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:06:580:07:05

Ladies and gentlemen, polyglottally...

0:07:150:07:19

AUDIENCE: Oh!

0:07:190:07:22

For your gratification, Mr John Bouchier.

0:07:230:07:28

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:07:280:07:33

Thank you very much indeed, Mr Chairman

0:07:350:07:37

for that very nice introduction.

0:07:370:07:39

Very nice? You didn't understand a word of it!

0:07:390:07:41

LAUGHTER

0:07:410:07:42

-Yes, I did.

-Well, I didn't.

0:07:420:07:44

That's because you're not very well educated

0:07:440:07:46

and without education you'll never be able to work.

0:07:460:07:49

I was working all last summer. I was a lifeguard on the beach all summer.

0:07:490:07:53

-Oh!

-Saving the girls.

0:07:530:07:54

-What for?

-The winter.

0:07:540:07:56

LAUGHTER

0:07:560:07:58

-What's that thing?

-That's got nothing whatever to do with you,

0:07:580:08:00

but as you mention it, I'd like to show the ladies and gentleman.

0:08:000:08:03

You sit down for a bit and I'll show them.

0:08:030:08:05

In fact, you sit over here like this. That's the idea.

0:08:050:08:08

You just sit there.

0:08:080:08:09

And you can turn your head round like that. Good.

0:08:090:08:13

LAUGHTER

0:08:130:08:17

A little girl came up to me and said, "Would you do me a favour?"

0:08:170:08:19

I said certainly. She said, "Could you mend my dolly for me?"

0:08:190:08:22

I said, "Yes, if you've got the parts". So she gave me the body.

0:08:220:08:25

I said, is there any more? She said, "No."

0:08:250:08:27

I thought, well, it needs a head so I got a sort of a tennis ball,

0:08:270:08:29

cut it in half, painted it so it would look like a face

0:08:290:08:32

and placed it on the back of my hand like this with a piece of elastic.

0:08:320:08:36

HE COUGHS

0:08:360:08:37

-Excuse me.

-HE COUGHS

0:08:370:08:39

-My throat needs clearing.

-Needs cutting!

0:08:390:08:42

LAUGHTER

0:08:420:08:45

-That wasn't very polite.

-No, but it was sincere.

0:08:470:08:50

LAUGHTER

0:08:500:08:52

I said, "How's that?" She said, "That's fine."

0:08:520:08:54

APPLAUSE

0:08:540:08:59

-Hello, Andy.

-Hello.

0:09:000:09:02

-How are you?

-Very well, thank you.

0:09:020:09:05

Good, I'm very pleased to hear that. Tell me, do you go to school?

0:09:050:09:09

-I go to two schools.

-Oh, two schools.

0:09:090:09:11

-Weekday school.

-Yeah.

-And Sunday school.

0:09:110:09:13

-Oh, and which school do you like best?

-Sunday school.

0:09:130:09:16

-Why is that?

-Only go once a week.

0:09:160:09:19

LAUGHTER

0:09:190:09:21

-Do you mind if I smoke?

-Don't care if you burn.

-Well that's very...

0:09:210:09:24

LAUGHTER

0:09:240:09:26

That's nice coming from a little boy. Tell me, how old are you?

0:09:260:09:30

-Four years old.

-Four years old and you say something like that.

0:09:300:09:33

-When will you be five?

-On my birthday.

0:09:330:09:36

LAUGHTER

0:09:360:09:37

-Do you mind if I smoke?

-No, can I smoke?

-No, you're too young.

0:09:370:09:40

A little boy like you should be learning to sing, not smoke.

0:09:400:09:43

-Can you sing?

-I can do the scales.

0:09:430:09:45

All right, do the scales for me.

0:09:450:09:47

# Do re mi fa so la ti do.

0:09:470:09:51

That's not bad, but you must learn to hold a note.

0:09:510:09:53

-Could you hold a note?

-Certainly.

-How long for?

-As long as you can.

0:09:530:09:57

LAUGHTER

0:09:590:10:00

Well, I...

0:10:000:10:02

APPLAUSE

0:10:020:10:05

I tell you what, we'll have a little practice,

0:10:050:10:07

see if you can hold a note for everybody here.

0:10:070:10:09

-Now?

-Yes, now.

-OK.

0:10:090:10:11

LONG, HIGH-PITCHED NOTE

0:10:130:10:21

NOTE DESCENDS

0:10:220:10:29

-OK?

-That's fine.

0:10:290:10:31

APPLAUSE

0:10:310:10:38

-Listen, what have you been doing today?

-I went fishing.

0:10:380:10:41

-Did you catch anything?

-Caught something you've never seen before.

0:10:410:10:43

Can you bring that fish on I caught this afternoon, please?

0:10:430:10:47

Here she comes.

0:10:470:10:48

AUDIENCE: Oh!

0:10:480:10:51

Lovely. Thank you very much. Get a few chips.

0:10:510:10:53

-We can have a little fish supper after.

-This is fantastic, isn't it?

0:10:530:10:58

Very nice indeed, yeah. 36, 24 and three and six a pound.

0:10:580:11:03

LAUGHTER

0:11:030:11:06

-Where did you find it?

-I didn't. I'm still looking for it.

0:11:060:11:08

I can't find it.

0:11:080:11:10

I think you're very lovely.

0:11:130:11:15

Mmm!

0:11:150:11:16

But I think you have to go back.

0:11:180:11:19

-Tell me, did you have a mother and father?

-No.

-No.

0:11:190:11:22

No, she's an act of cod.

0:11:220:11:24

LAUGHTER

0:11:240:11:27

And thereby hangs a tale and all!

0:11:270:11:30

-John?

-Yes.

-I like you.

0:11:300:11:34

-Oh, thank you very much.

-I think you're rather good-looking.

0:11:340:11:37

-Oh! Now, you're only saying that!

-No, you're saying it, mate!

0:11:390:11:43

LAUGHTER

0:11:430:11:45

He's the only one who does and all, aren't you?

0:11:450:11:47

-I also like the chairman.

-You like the chairman?

0:11:470:11:50

AUDIENCE: Whoa!

0:11:500:11:53

-What's his name?

-His name is Leonard.

-Leonard.

0:11:530:11:57

No, not Leonard.

0:12:000:12:01

LAUGHTER

0:12:010:12:05

Just Leonard.

0:12:050:12:06

Leh-nerd.

0:12:070:12:09

LAUGHTER

0:12:090:12:10

-Has she got a bone in her throat or something?

-I don't know.

0:12:100:12:13

I think it's your fault really

0:12:130:12:14

because you're ven-treacle-twist, aren't you?

0:12:140:12:17

-I'm a ventriloquist.

-Ven-trickle-ist.

0:12:190:12:23

Ventriloquist!

0:12:230:12:25

How come she can say it and I can't?

0:12:250:12:28

LAUGHTER

0:12:280:12:29

I really have no idea, but I think we've all said too much already

0:12:290:12:32

so I'd like you to say goodnight to everybody.

0:12:320:12:34

From me, Charlie, goodnight.

0:12:340:12:36

From me, goodnight, Mr Chairman.

0:12:360:12:37

0:36:070:36:10

You don't get a chance to play to millionaires every day

0:36:100:36:13

of the week and just coming here and seeing all the quality.

0:36:130:36:15

I think I look back to my start in showbiz and realise I owe it all

0:36:150:36:18

to one little old basket.

0:36:180:36:22

Here it is, ladies and gentlemen. The one little old basket.

0:36:220:36:25

It's all in here. My little old prop basket. By Jove!

0:36:250:36:28

Now this is an interesting one, here. This little...

0:36:280:36:32

This little cane with arthritis...

0:36:320:36:35

And this little hat on there. Now, who does that remind you of?

0:36:370:36:40

There we are, there we are. By Jove!

0:36:400:36:42

One of the greatest of our music hall comedians today,

0:36:420:36:46

Mr George Robey.

0:36:460:36:47

I like to go out walking alone by myself.

0:36:510:36:54

Tis merely for exercise.

0:36:540:36:56

I wonder around like a mischievous elf, for I always expect a surprise.

0:36:560:37:01

T'other day...

0:37:010:37:04

Desist, temper your frivolity with a modicum of decorum.

0:37:050:37:08

T'other day, I was walking alongside a hedge

0:37:110:37:13

and the hedge was apropos of some trees.

0:37:130:37:16

I got my surprise as I walked along the edge as a sound

0:37:190:37:23

wafted my way on the breeze.

0:37:230:37:25

So I stopped and I looked and I listened,

0:37:260:37:30

and I tried to locate the sound.

0:37:300:37:33

First, I thought it was there, then I thought it was there,

0:37:330:37:37

a most peculiar sound I really declare.

0:37:370:37:40

I'd heard it before but I cannot say where,

0:37:400:37:43

so I thought that the sound must be found.

0:37:430:37:45

So I stopped and I looked and I listened

0:37:460:37:50

and the sound seemed to come from the ground.

0:37:500:37:53

Someone said, "Do." Someone said, "Don't."

0:37:550:38:00

Someone said, "Will."

0:38:000:38:02

Someone said, "Won't."

0:38:040:38:07

So I stopped and I looked and I left.

0:38:070:38:11

APPLAUSE

0:38:140:38:17

Ah! Ah! Here's a little friend of mine, ladies and gentlemen.

0:38:230:38:27

-A little friend of mine all the way from Knotty Ash. Aren't you?

-Yes.

0:38:270:38:32

-You've walked all the way?

-Yes.

-You must be very tired.

-Yes.

0:38:320:38:36

-But you are glad to be here?

-Yes.

-Can you say anything else but, yes?

0:38:370:38:41

-Yes.

-What's that?

-No.

0:38:410:38:43

-I believe your name is Dicky Mint.

-Yes, cock.

0:38:440:38:47

-Pardon?

-Yes, cock.

-When you talk to me, you must say, "Sir."

0:38:490:38:52

-Sir?

-Yes.

-Yes, sir, cock.

0:38:520:38:54

It's good stuff this, you know, not ruggish.

0:38:560:38:59

I mean rubbish.

0:38:590:39:00

Well if you've walked all the way from Knotty Ash,

0:39:030:39:05

-you must be very thirsty.

-Yes.

0:39:050:39:07

So would you like a big bottle of brown beer.

0:39:070:39:10

A big bottle of brown beer and some brown bread and butter

0:39:100:39:13

-or a shandy.

-Shandy.

-Good, now...

0:39:160:39:18

Right.

0:39:180:39:19

Ah, this is it.

0:39:230:39:25

This is the most valuable thing I have in my little basket,

0:39:250:39:29

ladies and gentlemen. Music.

0:39:290:39:31

If music be the food of love, give us a thrill with your sausage roll.

0:39:310:39:36

Shakespeare. Shakespeare said that just before they took him away.

0:39:360:39:40

I love Handel's Largo. It refreshes the parts that cocoa cannot reach.
