Once again, good evening, ladies and gentlemen!

0:01:020:01:10

How about polysyllabic...

0:01:130:01:16

in plethoric prolixity...

0:01:160:01:20

extolling inaugurally.

0:01:200:01:23

The exquisite Miss Jacquie Tuoys,

0:01:230:01:26

plus the exemplary expertise of the Players Theatre.

# Where the boys and girls are found

0:01:410:01:43

# A hop and a skip and round and round.

0:01:430:01:44

# When they started dancing, they never know when to stop.

0:01:440:01:48

# It's aye, aye, up in the legs And, ah, hippety-hop

0:01:480:01:51

# Where the boys and girls are found

0:01:550:01:57

# A hop and a skip and you're round and round

0:01:570:01:59

# When they started dancing, they never know when to stop

0:01:590:02:02

# It's aye, aye, up with the legs and, ah, hippety-hop

0:02:020:02:06

# Aye, aye, up with the legs, up with the legs, up with the legs

0:02:060:02:10

# Casey would waltz with a strawberry blonde

0:02:130:02:16

# And the band played on

0:02:160:02:21

# He'd glide 'cross the floor with the girl he adored

0:02:210:02:24

# And the band played on

0:02:240:02:28

# His brain was so loaded it nearly exploded

0:02:280:02:33

# The poor girl would shake with alarm

0:02:330:02:36

# He'd ne'er leave the girl with the strawberry curl

0:02:360:02:40

# And the band played on

0:02:400:02:45

# Folks in Georgia's 'bout to go insane

0:02:450:02:49

# Since that new dance down in Georgia came

0:02:490:02:53

# I'm the only person who's to blame

0:02:530:02:57

# I'm the party introduced it there

0:02:570:03:00

# So give me credit to know a thing or two

0:03:000:03:05

# Give me credit for springing something new

0:03:050:03:08

# I will show this little dance to you

0:03:080:03:12

# When I do you'll say that it's a bear!

0:03:120:03:16

# First you put your two knees close up tight

0:03:160:03:20

# Then you sway 'em to the left, and you sway 'em to the right

0:03:200:03:24

# Step around the floor kind of nice and light

0:03:240:03:27

# Then you twist around

0:03:270:03:29

# And twist around with all of your might

0:03:290:03:32

# Spread your lovin' arms way out in space

0:03:320:03:35

# Then you do the Eagle Rock with style and grace

0:03:350:03:39

# Swing your foot way 'round then bring it back

0:03:390:03:43

# And that's what I call Ballin' the Jack

0:03:430:03:47

# And that's what I call the Ballin' the Jack

0:04:330:04:37

# And that's what we call the Wibbley Wobbley walk

0:04:370:04:41

# And we all walk the Wibbley Wobbley walk

0:04:410:04:45

# All talk the Wibbley Wobbley talk

0:04:450:04:48

# All wear Wibbley Wobbley ties

0:04:480:04:52

# And wink at the pretty girls with Wibbley Wobbley thighs

0:04:520:04:55

# And we all smile the Wibbley Wobbley smile

0:04:550:04:58

# When the day is dawning

0:04:590:05:03

# And all through the Wibbley Wobbley walk

0:05:030:05:06

# We get a Wibbley Wobbley feeling in the morning

0:05:060:05:10

# And we all walk the Wibbley Wobbley walk

0:05:100:05:14

# All talk the Wibbley Wobbley talk

0:05:140:05:17

0:05:310:05:34

# We get a Wibbley Wobbley feeling

0:05:340:05:37

# A Wibbley Wobbley feeling

0:05:380:05:41

Whoo!

0:05:450:05:46

APPLAUSE

0:05:460:05:48

We leave...

0:06:020:06:03

We leave, as you know, no stone unturned

overrehearsed to the perilous peak

0:06:180:06:23

of unpredictability.

0:06:230:06:26

Ladies and gentlemen, aiming for perfection for your delight,

0:06:260:06:32

Mr Harry Towb and Mr Joe Melia.

0:06:320:06:36

Ladies and gentlemen, a recitation...

0:06:420:06:44

a recitation entitled Don't Go Down The Mine, Daddy,

0:06:440:06:47

Somebody's Nicked All The Coal.

0:06:470:06:48

A bunch of the boys were whooping it up in the Malamute saloon;

0:06:490:06:52

The kid that handles the music-box was hitting a rag-time tune;

0:06:520:06:55

Back of the bar, in a solo game, sat Dangerous Dan McGrew,

0:06:550:06:59

And watching his luck was his light-o'-love, the lad that's known as Lou.

0:06:590:07:03

-You've got it wrong.

-I beg your pardon?

0:07:030:07:06

You've got it wrong.

0:07:080:07:09

It's lady.

0:07:090:07:11

That's no lady, that's Mr Herman.

0:07:110:07:12

-Lou.

-Who?

-Lou.

0:07:150:07:16

You should have gone before you came on.

0:07:160:07:18

The lady that's known as Lou.

0:07:200:07:22

No, you have to go to the other one, unless my eyes deceive me.

0:07:220:07:25

Please forgive this crass ignoramus.

0:07:250:07:28

You're very kind.

0:07:280:07:29

Ladies and gentleman...

0:07:330:07:34

Dear old Joe, he was one of the best,

0:07:340:07:36

and everyone's pal without doubt.

0:07:360:07:38

The sort of chap that would give you his boots and swear he's want better.

0:07:380:07:41

Get out.

0:07:410:07:42

I beg your pardon?

0:07:430:07:45

How dare you come on in the middle of my act.

0:07:450:07:46

-Can't you see what I'm trying to do?

-No.

0:07:460:07:49

I thought maybe you'd forgotten your lines.

0:07:510:07:54

Me? Me forgotten my lines?

0:07:540:07:57

I've been in this business eight months.

0:07:570:07:59

I never forget my lines, never.

0:08:010:08:02

0:08:090:08:11

Shall we do the song now?

0:08:110:08:12

It's not. It's a little recitation called... Should we do the song now?

0:08:120:08:16

If you please, Mrs Herman.

..masculinity...

0:12:440:12:46

..rhapsodically resplendant in Stuart regalia.

0:12:470:12:51

Yes, ladies,

0:12:530:12:55

ravishing in a kilt,

0:12:560:13:00

Mr Stuart Gillies.

0:13:010:13:04

# Step we gaily on we go

0:13:080:13:11

# Heel for heel and toe for toe

0:13:110:13:13

# Arm and arm and row and row

0:13:130:13:16

# All for Marie's wedding

0:13:160:13:18

# Bright her cheeks as Rowan's are Bright her eye as any star

0:13:180:13:23

# Fairest of them all by far is our darling Marie

0:13:230:13:27

# Step we gaily on we go

0:13:270:13:29

# Heel for heel and toe for toe

0:13:290:13:32

# Arm and arm and row and row

0:13:320:13:34

# All for Marie's wedding

0:13:340:13:43

# I sing of a river I'm happy beside

0:13:470:13:49

# The song that I sing is the song of the Clyde

0:13:490:13:55

# Of all Scottish rivers it's dearest tae me

0:13:550:13:59

# It flows from Leadhills all the way to the sea

0:13:590:14:02

# It borders the orchards of Lanark so fair

0:14:020:14:07

# Meanders through meadows with sheep grazing there

0:14:070:14:11

# But from Glasgow to Greenock - that's towns on each side -

0:14:110:14:15

# The hammers ding-dong It's the song of the Clyde

0:14:150:14:19

# Oh the river Clyde the wonderful Clyde

0:14:190:14:23

# The name of it thrills me and fills me with pride

0:14:230:14:27

# And I'm satisfied whate'er may betide

0:14:270:14:31

# The sweetest of songs is the song of the Clyde

0:14:310:14:36

# The sweetest of songs

0:14:360:14:40

# Is the song of the Clyde. #

0:14:400:14:50

Ladies and gentlemen, it's just great for me to be here singing for you

0:14:580:15:02

for the first time at the City Varieties, here in Leeds.

0:15:020:15:05

That last song, as you know, was called The Song of the Clyde,

0:15:050:15:07

and of course who better to sing it than me,

0:15:070:15:09

coming from Clydebank in Scotland?

0:15:090:15:11

Anyway, another little song for you now, one of my favourites.

0:15:110:15:14

I hope you like it, it's called The Heather On The Hill.

0:15:140:15:18

# Can't we two go walking together

0:15:280:15:34

# Out beyond the valley of trees?

0:15:340:15:39

# Out where there's a hillside of heather

0:15:390:15:45

# Gently swaying in the breeze

0:15:450:15:52

# That's what I'd like to do

0:15:520:15:57

# See the heather but with you

0:15:570:16:03

# The mist of May is in the gloaming

0:16:060:16:13

# And all the clouds are holding still

0:16:130:16:18

# If you're not there I won't go roaming

0:16:180:16:23

# Through the heather on the hill

0:16:230:16:29

# The morning dew is blinking yonder

0:16:290:16:35

# There's lazy music in the rill

0:16:350:16:41

# Yet all I want to do is wander

0:16:410:16:46

# Through the heather on the hill

0:16:460:16:51

# There may be other days as rich and rare

0:16:510:16:57

# There may be other springs as full and fair

0:16:570:17:01

# But they won't be the same

0:17:010:17:04

# They'll come and go

0:17:040:17:07

# For this I know

0:17:070:17:13

# That when the mist is in the gloaming

0:17:140:17:19

# And all the clouds are holding still

0:17:200:17:25

# If you're not there I won't go roaming

0:17:250:17:29

# Through the heather on the hill

0:17:300:17:36

# The heather on the hill

0:17:360:17:51

Thank you.

0:17:550:17:58

Are you ready?

0:18:010:18:02

# Well, I love a lassie, a bonnie, bonnie lassie,

0:18:020:18:07

# She's as pure as the lily in the dell

0:18:070:18:11

# She's as sweet the heather, the bonnie blooming heather

0:18:110:18:14

# Mary, my Scots bluebell... #

0:18:140:18:18

Come on, let me hear you this time.

0:18:180:18:20

# I love a lassie A bonnie, bonnie lassie

0:18:200:18:25

# She's as pure as the lily in the dell,

0:18:250:18:28

# She's as sweet the heather

0:18:280:18:30

# The bonnie blooming heather

0:18:300:18:33

# Mary, my Scots bluebell

0:18:330:18:36

# By yon bonnie banks And by yon bonnie braes

0:18:380:18:46

# Where the sun shines bright on Loch Lomond

0:18:460:18:52

# Where me and my true love will never want again

0:18:520:18:59

# On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond

0:18:590:19:07

# Oh, ye'll tak' the high road and I'll tak' the low road

0:19:070:19:13

# And I'll be in Scotland afore ye

0:19:130:19:18

# But me and my true love will never meet again

0:19:180:19:24

# On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond

0:19:240:19:30

# Oh, ye'll tak' the high road and I'll tak' the low road

0:19:300:19:35

# And I'll be in Scotland afore ye

0:19:350:19:40

# But me and my true love will never meet again

0:19:400:19:46

# On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond. #

0:19:460:19:56

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:19:560:20:01

Now you know, my dears in the front rows...

0:20:150:20:18

..why your seats are so much more expensive.

0:20:200:20:23

Egregiously, ingratiating...

0:20:250:20:29

..gratuitously engaging in facetious fatuities...

0:20:300:20:36

a friendly funnyman,

0:20:360:20:39

Mr Ken Goodwin.

0:20:390:20:42

Hello, hello.

0:20:530:20:56

How are you doing?

0:20:560:20:59

Thank you very much, ha!

0:21:020:21:05

I bet you thought I was going to dance then, didn't you?

0:21:120:21:14

Well, it's nice to see you.

0:21:160:21:18

-How are you, all right?

-Yes.

-That's it. How about that, all right?

0:21:180:21:23

Have you come on your own?

0:21:260:21:29

I don't want you to shout too loud up there cos the plaster's crumbling!

0:21:300:21:34

Hey, I've got super digs.

0:21:360:21:38

I don't know where I'm stopping but it's someplace up at

0:21:380:21:41

the Park Road in Leeds, and I knocked on the door

0:21:410:21:45

and I walked in and...

0:21:450:21:49

I said, "I've come to stop with you."

0:21:520:21:54

She said, "You'll have to make your own bed."

0:21:560:21:59

I said, "That's all right." She said, "Here's a hammer and nails."

0:21:590:22:01

Do you get it?

0:22:030:22:05

I just come right out with that one, didn't I?

0:22:100:22:14

I went upstairs and...

0:22:150:22:17

I went upstairs and as I was going upstairs she came with me,

0:22:170:22:22

and... Ha-ha!

0:22:220:22:24

..and she said, "Have you got a good memory for faces?"

0:22:240:22:27

I said, "Yes." She said, "There's no mirror in the bathroom."

0:22:270:22:31

I said, "I say, I can't stand all those mice."

0:22:390:22:42

She said, "Well, sort out the ones

0:22:420:22:44

"you don't like and we'll get rid of them, then!"

0:22:440:22:46

This is the first time I've wore one of these, you know.

0:22:530:22:56

I don't know.

0:22:560:22:58

And I've had trouble with it because I went to the doctors and I said,

0:22:580:23:01

I keep hearing music.

0:23:010:23:03

So he said, give us your hat, so I gave it him.

0:23:050:23:08

He said, now try it on.

0:23:080:23:10

I said, that's smashing, it's stopped.

0:23:120:23:15

He said, I've took the band out.

0:23:150:23:17

Took the band out!

0:23:170:23:19

Got them all written down on here.

0:23:290:23:31

Bailiffs went to this house on this estate and pushed the summons under

0:23:380:23:41

the door and this fellow was stood at the other side with a pair of

0:23:410:23:44

bellows blowing it back.

0:23:440:23:46

When they went back to court the judge said,

0:23:510:23:52

"Did they pay their summons?"

0:23:520:23:54

He said "No, and I wouldn't in a draughty house like that!"

0:23:540:23:57

I don't think I'll stick it out here in these digs, because I stopped there last time I came.

0:24:050:24:10

We had fish Monday, fish Tuesday and fish Wednesday,

0:24:100:24:12

and Thursday she was setting the table and she dropped a knife.

0:24:120:24:16

And she said "A stranger's coming to tea."

0:24:160:24:18

I said, "I hope it's the butcher."

0:24:200:24:22

Anyway, I'm not stopping any longer, cos I get fed up after a bit.

0:24:320:24:36

No, I don't, really, cos I think you're rotten smashing, I do.

0:24:380:24:41

And I'm going to sing a song now and I don't know why because you haven't

0:24:420:24:46

done anything to upset me.

0:24:460:24:47

And this is a request from someone that's just gone out.

0:24:530:24:57

There's a woman down there, she just went like...

0:25:020:25:05

HE TUTS

0:25:050:25:07

I'm not scared of her.

0:25:150:25:17
