# Shout hurrah with a motorcar

0:01:180:01:20

0:01:360:01:37

# There's a lovely girl named Florrie

0:01:390:01:43

# But for short we call her Flo

0:01:430:01:47

# And she really feels quite sorry

0:01:470:01:51

# The boys all love her so

0:01:510:01:55

# She's a neat little, sweet little icicle

0:01:550:01:59

# Her heart must be made of snow

0:01:590:02:03

# She once used to ride on a bicycle

0:02:030:02:08

# But now she prefers to go

0:02:080:02:11

# On a motorcar

0:02:110:02:16

# Oh, Flo, why do you go

0:02:160:02:20

# Singular

0:02:280:02:30

# So you are

0:02:300:02:31

# Oh, Flo, do let me go

0:02:310:02:35

# I'll be your guiding star

0:02:350:02:39

0:02:410:02:42

# Johnny O'Connor bought an automobile

0:02:590:03:02

# He took his sweetheart for a ride one Sunday

0:03:020:03:05

# Johnny was dressed up in his best Sunday clothes

0:03:050:03:08

# She nestled close to his side

0:03:080:03:12

# Things went just dandy till they got down the road

0:03:120:03:15

# Then something happened to the old machinery

0:03:150:03:18

# That engine got his goat

0:03:180:03:19

# Off went his hat and coat

0:03:190:03:21

# Everything needed repair

0:03:210:03:24

# He'd have to get under

0:03:240:03:25

# Get out and get under

0:03:250:03:27

# To fix his little machine

0:03:270:03:30

# He was just dying to cuddle his queen

0:03:300:03:33

# But every minute

0:03:330:03:35

# When he'd begin it

0:03:350:03:36

# He'd have to get under

0:03:360:03:38

# Get out and get under

0:03:380:03:40

# Then he'd get back at the wheel

0:03:400:03:42

# A dozen times they'd start to hug and kiss

0:03:420:03:45

# And then the darned old engine it would miss

0:03:450:03:48

# And then he'd have to get under

0:03:480:03:50

# Get out and get under

0:03:500:03:52

# And fix up his automobile

0:03:520:03:55

# He'd have to get under

0:04:010:04:03

# Get out and get under

0:04:030:04:04

# To fix up his automobile. #

0:04:040:04:10

Of course you're quite right, sir - I heard you say it -

0:04:210:04:24

the really dangerous job is for that man who has to go in front

0:04:240:04:27

with the red flag, isn't it?

0:04:270:04:29

Now, from France...

# Jeremiah Jones

0:07:300:07:32

# A ladies' man was he

0:07:320:07:33

# With every pretty girl he loved to spoon

0:07:330:07:36

# Till he found a wife

0:07:370:07:39

# And down beside the sea

0:07:390:07:41

# They went to Margate for their honeymoon

0:07:410:07:43

# And as they strolled along the promenade

0:07:430:07:47

# With his little wife just newly wed

0:07:470:07:51

# He got an awful scare

0:07:510:07:53

# When someone walking there

0:07:530:07:55

# Came up to him and winked and said

0:07:550:07:59

# Hello, hello

0:07:590:08:01

# Who's your lady friend

0:08:010:08:02

# Who's the little girlie by your side

0:08:020:08:06

# I've seen you with a girl or two

0:08:060:08:10

# Oh, oh, oh, I am surprised at you

0:08:100:08:13

# Hello, hello

0:08:130:08:15

# What's your little game

0:08:150:08:17

# Don't you think your ways you ought to mend

0:08:170:08:21

# It wasn't the girl I saw you with at Brighton

0:08:210:08:24

# So who, who, who's your lady friend?

0:08:240:08:27

# Jeremiah now has settled down in life

0:08:350:08:39

# Said goodbye to frills and furbelows

0:08:390:08:42

# Never thinks of girls except his darling wife

0:08:420:08:46

# Always takes her everywhere he goes, by Jove

0:08:460:08:49

# Now there he is the naughty boy

0:08:490:08:53

# With a lady too you're rather free

0:08:530:08:57

# I'll bet you'll stake your life

0:08:570:08:59

# That lady is your wife

0:08:590:09:01

# So tell us on the strict Q...

0:10:310:10:33

# Growing through the crevices

0:10:340:10:38

# By some London railing

0:10:380:10:41

# Though it has a Latin name

0:10:410:10:45

# In town and countryside

0:10:450:10:49

# We in England call it

0:10:500:10:53

0:10:540:10:57

# With the fruit piled high

0:11:290:11:32

I promise you, you will have Miss Georgia back,

0:13:360:13:39

once again, later on in the programme,

0:13:390:13:40

but, next time, without that tiny marabou tippet.

0:13:400:13:44

And now, ladies and gentlemen,

0:13:440:13:46

born in Leeds...

0:13:460:13:49

CHEERING

0:13:490:13:52

..now a lustrous London luminary...

AUDIENCE BOOS

0:13:550:13:57

..inimitable,

0:13:570:13:58

incomparable,

0:13:580:14:01

audaciously...

0:14:010:14:02

..irrepressible,

0:14:030:14:05

Mr Barry Cryer!

0:14:050:14:08

# La-la-la, la-la-la

0:14:140:14:16

# La, la, la-la-la, la

0:14:160:14:20

# Two young fellas were talking about their

0:14:200:14:24

# Girls, girls, girls

0:14:240:14:26

# Sweethearts for whom they pined

0:14:280:14:30

# Sweethearts they'd left behind

0:14:310:14:34

# One said my little shy little lass

0:14:350:14:38

# Has a waist so trim and small

0:14:380:14:41

# Grey are her eyes so bright

0:14:420:14:46

# But best, best of all

0:14:460:14:49

# My girl's a Yorkshire girl

0:14:500:14:54

# Yorkshire through and through

0:14:540:14:56

# My girl's a Yorkshire girl

0:14:580:15:01

# Ee! By gum, she's a champion

0:15:010:15:05

# Though she's a factory lass

0:15:050:15:08

# And wears no fancy clothes

0:15:080:15:13

# I've a sort of a Yorkshire relish

0:15:130:15:16

# For my little Yorkshire Rose. #

0:15:160:15:20

I never knew I could sing like that.

0:15:200:15:21

I never knew anybody could sing like that!

0:15:230:15:26

How are you?

0:15:260:15:27

-ALL:

-How are you?

0:15:270:15:28

-Are you enjoying yourselves?

-Yes!

0:15:280:15:30

Why? What are you doing?

0:15:300:15:33

Had a marvellous day, marvellous day here.

0:15:330:15:35

Mr Colehan, the producer...

0:15:350:15:37

Mr Colehan, the producer...

0:15:370:15:40

took me on one side - he had a word with me.

0:15:400:15:42

Well, actually he had two words with me...

0:15:420:15:45

but I'm still here.

0:15:450:15:46

Let's, let's get back to the plot.

0:15:490:15:51

Let's go back to Rose.

0:15:510:15:53

I met her on a 42 bus, you know?

0:15:530:15:55

I used to see her on the bus, regularly, every morning.

0:15:550:15:57

Every weekday, she was an early morning workman's,

0:15:570:16:00

and she was a shilling all day Sunday, and I...

0:16:000:16:03

Very reasonable! Very reasonable!

0:16:050:16:08

So I plucked up courage, one morning -

0:16:090:16:11

we were on the bus together, you know?

0:16:110:16:12

I plucked up courage to speak to her and she had a word with me...

0:16:120:16:16

She actually had two words with me...

0:16:160:16:20

"Still here" - that's right, love!

0:16:200:16:22

God bless you, love. Move about a bit.

0:16:240:16:26

Anyway, I plucked up courage. I said, "Do you like dancing?"

0:16:290:16:32

And she said, "Yes,

0:16:320:16:33

"do you want to get off, or shall we do it here?"

0:16:330:16:36

Funny woman. Funny woman.

0:16:370:16:40

So we had a, you know, a quick Veleta...

0:16:400:16:42

Nothing ambitious - just as far as the stairs and back, you know?

0:16:440:16:48

Then I kissed her under the "no spitting" sign.

0:16:480:16:50

It was wonderful. Wonderful.

0:16:500:16:53

Golden moment. Golden moment.

0:16:530:16:55

Then we started going out together. It was very romantic, you know?

0:16:560:16:59

Little restaurant, locally - candlelight, a bottle of wine...

0:16:590:17:03

She went Tuesdays, I went Fridays.

0:17:030:17:05

But I determined I was going to get me feet under the table.

0:17:070:17:09

You know what I mean?

0:17:090:17:11

Go home and meet the parents - that's the thing, isn't it?

0:17:110:17:13

So she took me home to meet her mum and dad, you see?

0:17:130:17:16

And I walked in - a lovely couple...

0:17:160:17:18

Mother was in the corner, plucking the cat.

0:17:180:17:22

Seeing this family scene, you know, it really did something to me.

0:17:220:17:27

So I said, "Where is it?" And her father...

0:17:270:17:29

I don't know why I'm shouting - I've got the job. But her father...

0:17:350:17:40

Her father said "the bottom of the garden", you see?

0:17:400:17:42

So I popped down to the bottom of the garden. I came back...

0:17:420:17:46

He said, "Have you pulled t'string?" I said, "Yes."

0:17:460:17:49

He said, "Bloody hell - he's let all me pigeons out!"

0:17:490:17:52

Anyway...

0:18:010:18:02

Good evening. Anyway, I thought...

0:18:030:18:05

You're a neglected minority, up there, aren't you?

0:18:050:18:08

Anyway, I thought I'd better get to terms with him, so I suggested a drink.

0:18:080:18:11

He said yes - he usually got up about opening time.

0:18:110:18:14

And so we're in the snug, you see?

0:18:140:18:16

We're in the snug and he said, "Are your intentions honourable or not?"

0:18:160:18:20

And I said I didn't know I had the choice!

0:18:200:18:23

I thought I'd get to the point quickly.

0:18:230:18:24

I said, "I want your daughter for my wife."

0:18:240:18:26

And he said, "What the hell's your wife going to do with my daughter?"

0:18:260:18:31

Anyway, at that moment...

0:18:310:18:33

You'll not believe this, cos it's not true...

0:18:330:18:35

At that moment...

0:18:350:18:37

The door opened...

0:18:370:18:38

Picture the scene.

0:18:380:18:39

The door opened - in walked a pig.

0:18:390:18:42

In walked a pig, into this pub. Straight up to the bar,

0:18:420:18:45

put his little trotters on the bar,

0:18:450:18:48

and Big Ethel - you know Big Ethel? The barmaid, there.

0:18:480:18:51

She was drying her nails, and...

0:18:570:18:59

..this little pig ordered a pint of bitter, you see?

0:19:010:19:03

And he ordered and drank 12 pints of bitter in 10 minutes.

0:19:030:19:06

Now Ethel, being a compassionate soul, as we all know...

0:19:060:19:09

said, "You're only a little pig - you shouldn't drink that much."

0:19:090:19:12

And he said, "No, it's all right - I'm the little pig that goes

0:19:120:19:15

"wee, wee, wee..."

0:19:150:19:16

Wasn't true. I made that bit up, actually.

0:19:260:19:29

It was a donkey.

0:19:290:19:30

And it all started from there. We've been together ever since.

0:19:320:19:35

Seven very happy years.

0:19:350:19:36

7 out of 28 isn't bad.

0:19:360:19:38

She said, "Do you regret it?"

0:19:390:19:41

I said, "Not a minute. Not a minute of all those years."

0:19:410:19:45

And she said, "Why?"

0:19:450:19:46

I said, "Why?

0:19:460:19:47

"Because..."

# My girl's a Yorkshire girl

0:19:510:19:54

# Yorkshire through and through

0:19:540:19:58

# My girl's a Yorkshire girl

0:19:580:20:02

# Ee! By gum, she's a champion

0:20:020:20:06

# Though she's a factory lass

0:20:060:20:09

# And wears no fancy clothes

0:20:090:20:13

# I've a sort of a Yorkshire relish

0:20:130:20:16

# For my little Yorkshire Rose. #

0:20:160:20:21

illimitably,

0:20:510:20:53

lilting in Lehar.

0:20:530:20:55

Will you give your warmest welcome

0:20:550:20:57

to the newcomer, to the stranger in our midst...

0:20:570:21:00

Now, ladies and gentlemen,

0:26:340:26:36

hotfoot in Herculean haste...

0:26:360:26:39

..from Augustus Daly's latest pantomime

0:26:400:26:44

munificent in...

0:26:440:26:48

Boo!

0:26:480:26:49

No goose here.

0:26:510:26:53

Munificent in muscular

0:26:530:26:56

masculinity,

0:26:560:26:59

and vertiginous versatility

0:26:590:27:04

and virility,

0:27:040:27:06

Mr John Inman

0:27:060:27:07

and Mr Barry Howard!

0:27:070:27:10

# They tried to tell us pantomime had ended

0:27:460:27:49

# They said come put away that old glass shoe

0:27:490:27:53

# They said our charms were waning

0:27:530:27:55

# But we've got to go on reigning

0:27:550:27:58

# What's a couple of regal boys to do

0:27:580:28:01

# We can't go back to being just plain misses

0:28:010:28:05

# When we've been called

0:28:050:28:07

# Your Majesty

0:28:070:28:08

# And sire

0:28:080:28:09

# Life would lose its flavour... #

0:28:110:28:13

Outside, you!

0:28:140:28:15

# Without our grace and favour

0:28:190:28:22

# And mincing as we do around the shire. #

0:28:220:28:25

Two, three, four.

0:28:250:28:27

Hup!

0:28:270:28:28

# We used to love the royal entertaining

0:28:410:28:45

# Our waltz and our gavotte were all the gear

0:28:450:28:49

# It does seem such a shame

0:28:490:28:51

# Cos they met with much acclaim

0:28:510:28:54

# And our dances got bigger every year

0:28:540:28:58

# We can't go back to being in the chorus

0:28:590:29:03

# When we've woken Sleeping Beauty with a kiss

0:29:030:29:07

# I've been a Whittington named Dick

0:29:070:29:10

# I've even trimmed Aladdin's wick

0:29:130:29:15

# And you should see us up a beanstalk dressed like this

0:29:170:29:20

# I used to love the blackouts with Man Friday. #

0:29:280:29:31

Oh, she did! She did!

0:29:310:29:33

# When the lights went up I went a shade of puce. #

0:29:330:29:36

Tell 'em, girl.

0:29:360:29:38

# I shall miss my name in lights

0:29:380:29:40

# And I'll miss my legs in tights. #

0:29:400:29:42

Ooh, that does hurt!

0:29:430:29:45

# But most we'll miss the goose from Mother Goose

0:29:450:29:50

# What shall we do when we're thrown on the scrapheap

0:29:500:29:54

# It seems our lives have been but just a farce. #

0:29:540:29:58

Who said that?

0:30:020:30:03

W...

0:30:080:30:09

# Why we've recently been seen

0:30:110:30:13

# By Her Majesty the Queen

0:30:130:30:16

# Oh, please! Oh, please! Don't put us out to grass

0:30:160:30:19

# We're not for grazing

0:30:190:30:20

# Oh, must there be an end to pantomime

0:30:200:30:23

# Without our trousers

0:30:230:30:24

# Oh, must there be an end

0:30:240:30:27

# To pantomime? #

0:30:270:30:30

# Put me amongst the girls

0:30:410:30:45

# Put me amongst the girls

0:30:450:30:48

# Do me a favour, do

0:30:480:30:52

# You know I'd do the same for you

0:30:520:30:55

# Put me amongst the girls

0:30:550:30:59

# Those with the curly curls

0:30:590:31:03

# They'll enjoy themselves and so shall I

0:31:030:31:05

# If you put me amongst the girls. #

0:31:060:31:09

Now, perhaps you can guess what I meant by "versatility".

0:31:240:31:28

From Denmark...

0:31:290:31:31

..tornadic in tripartite,

0:31:330:31:36

He's going to put that on his feet.

Ursula and John are going to go into their high-speed skating,
