# It's the Soldiers of the Queen, my lads

0:01:520:01:55

# Who've been my lads Who've seen my lads

0:01:550:01:59

# In the fight for England's glory, lads

0:01:590:02:03

# Of its worldwide glory let us sing

0:02:030:02:06

# And when we say we've always won

0:02:060:02:10

# And when they ask us how it's done

0:02:100:02:13

# We'll proudly point to ev'ry one

0:02:130:02:16

# Of England's soldiers of the Queen! #

0:02:160:02:21

# Tell me, pretty maiden, are there any more at home like you?

0:02:210:02:26

# There are a few, kind sir but simple girls, and proper too

0:02:260:02:32

# Then tell me, pretty maiden, what these very simple girlies do?

0:02:320:02:38

# Kind sir, their manners are perfection

0:02:380:02:41

# And the opposite of mine

0:02:410:02:44

# Then take a little walk with me and then you will see

0:02:440:02:47

# What a most particular girl should be

0:02:470:02:50

# I may love you too well to let you go

0:02:500:02:53

# And flirt with those at home, you know

0:02:530:02:56

# Well, don't mind, little girl

0:02:560:02:59

# You'll see I'll only want but you

0:02:590:03:03

# It's not quite fair to them if you told them that you were true

0:03:030:03:09

# I won't care a pin for your sisters if you love me

0:03:090:03:12

# What would you say if I said I liked you well?

0:03:120:03:14

# I'd vow to you

0:03:140:03:18

# On bended knee?

0:03:180:03:20

# On bended knee

0:03:200:03:23

# If I loved you

0:03:230:03:27

# Would you tell me what I ought to do

0:03:270:03:29

# To keep you all mine alone to always be true to me?

0:03:290:03:37

# If I loved you would it be a silly thing to do?

0:03:370:03:41

# For I must love someone

0:03:410:03:45

# Then why not me?

0:03:450:03:48

# Yes, I must love someone really

0:03:480:03:51

# And it might as well be you. #

0:03:510:03:56

# Far away on the ocean of sunshine and foam

0:03:590:04:08

# Sailed one day little Cupid in search of a home

0:04:080:04:17

# Paused to hark to the sound of the murmuring dove

0:04:170:04:25

# On his barque to that wonderful island of love. #

0:04:250:04:34

# I may be crazy

0:04:340:04:39

# But I love you

0:04:390:04:41

# I'll do and dare, oh

0:04:410:04:43

# I'm smart vaquero

0:04:430:04:45

# You may be shady, but I love you

0:04:450:04:49

# So won't you come right here and say goodbye

0:04:490:04:54

# Because you may not see me any more

0:04:540:04:58

# She's my lady love

0:05:190:05:23

# She is my dove, my baby love

0:05:230:05:27

# She's no girl for sittin' down to dream

0:05:270:05:31

# She's the only queen Laguna knows

0:05:310:05:35

# I know she likes me

0:05:350:05:38

# I know she likes me because she said so

0:05:380:05:42

we modulate to the imponderable...

0:06:540:06:58

..improprieties

0:07:000:07:03

of a metropolitan nocturnal assignation.

APPLAUSE

0:07:150:07:20

SLURRING: # Everybody loves a baby

0:07:280:07:30

# But I'd sooner have a pint

0:07:320:07:34

# How's your father?

0:07:370:07:39

HE GRUMBLES

0:07:400:07:42

Me foot's gone dead.

0:07:420:07:44

Not working well.

0:07:470:07:48

Ah! Sweet mystery of life.

0:07:500:07:53

The greatest mistake...

0:07:570:07:59

Arrgghh!

0:08:050:08:08

I thought me tongue was hanging out.

0:08:080:08:10

HE MUTTERS

0:08:130:08:15

Bend, bend! Come on, bend.

0:08:170:08:19

Bend, you bugger, bend, bend, bend.

0:08:190:08:21

So, you won't bend, then.

0:08:230:08:25

Then n-necess-essity...

0:08:250:08:27

..is the mother...

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:08:340:08:37

Stay there.

0:08:560:08:57

I'm going back, too, Mother.

0:08:580:09:01

Ahem...

0:09:010:09:02

HE COUGHS LOUDLY

0:09:020:09:04

# Have you got a light, boy?

0:09:070:09:08

Just...just a minute. I've got me finger stuck in this f...

0:09:100:09:15

Can you get a good grip?

0:09:150:09:17

That's it.

0:09:270:09:28

I opened it about half an hour, it's just so happens...

0:09:280:09:31

Hang on.

0:09:310:09:33

APPLAUSE

0:09:420:09:44

I can't see anybody.

0:10:010:10:03

There's not nobody there.

0:10:060:10:08

Wh-What do you mean? Why?

0:10:080:10:11

Oh, yes, yes, yes.

0:10:110:10:14

Yes.

0:10:140:10:16

Four.

0:10:160:10:17

No way, mate. Not four, not for that, no.

0:10:230:10:28

Two? Do you accept two?

0:10:280:10:30

Right.

0:10:300:10:32

Do you want to buy a ferret?

0:10:340:10:36

Hey! Down, down, down!

0:10:400:10:42

Stay! Ha!

0:10:420:10:43

I use it as a guard dog.

0:10:430:10:45

Thank you very much, that's one.

0:10:470:10:48

Hang on...

0:10:480:10:50

And another one makes two. Beautifully, thank you very much.

0:10:510:10:56

APPLAUSE

0:11:020:11:05

Now you've learnt something.

0:11:220:11:25

# The kids sang "ring-a-roses"

0:14:150:14:19

# "Brooklyn Bridge is falling down"

0:14:190:14:23

# Boys and girls together

# With a Dixie melody. #

0:15:440:15:54

APPLAUSE

0:15:540:15:56

In a melodic miscellany

0:16:090:16:15

commingling titillant terpsichorean corybantics...

0:16:150:16:23

..singing and dancing,

0:16:270:16:30

Mr Peter Gale!

0:16:300:16:33

# All men sing their best beside the old domestic hearth

0:16:390:16:44

# Along the garden path and in the morning bath

0:16:440:16:50

# Just rejoice and try the voice

0:16:500:16:53

# Let the note resound

0:16:530:16:57

# Don't forget it's melody

0:16:570:17:00

# That makes this world go round

0:17:000:17:06

# Never forget that one good tune deserves another

0:17:060:17:09

# This is a song we can sing

0:17:090:17:13

# Feeling like a nightingale upon the wing

0:17:130:17:16

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

0:17:160:17:21

# I only know I never want to hear another

0:17:210:17:24

This is the one that will cling

0:17:240:17:28

# Like the story of the roses and the ring... #

0:17:280:17:31

All together.

0:17:310:17:32

# La-la-la-la-la-la... #

0:17:320:17:34

Very nice.

0:17:340:17:36

# It would a sheer delight on the phone

0:17:360:17:39

# Or trombone, xylophone

0:17:390:17:43

# I could dance to it all night on my own

0:17:430:17:47

# To a lone saxophone

0:17:470:17:50

# Never forget that one good tune deserves another

0:17:500:17:54

# This is a song we can sing

0:17:540:17:58

# Feeling like a nightingale upon the wing... #

0:17:580:18:00

All together.

0:18:000:18:02

# La-la-la-la-la-la. #

0:18:020:18:04

Very good.

0:18:040:18:05

# There's always tomorrow to bring us a smile

0:18:080:18:13

# Maybe we should borrow this thought for a while

0:18:130:18:18

# For then we'll both remember that life is but a game

0:18:180:18:24

# We'll fan the dying ember and coax it into flame

0:18:240:18:29

# Tomorrow we'll borrow this thought from a song

0:18:290:18:35

# To capture the rapture of days that are gone

0:18:350:18:40

# For when we're reunited

0:18:400:18:44

# We'll have but this to say

0:18:440:18:49

# Tomorrow was yesterday. #

0:18:490:18:57

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

0:19:030:19:07

# Now is the time to say farewell

0:19:070:19:11

# Goodnight, Vienna

0:19:110:19:18

# You city of a million melodies

0:19:180:19:22

# Our hearts are thrilling to the strings that you play

0:19:220:19:26

# From dawn till the daylight dies

0:19:260:19:31

# Goodnight, Vienna

0:19:310:19:35

# Now lovers kiss beneath your linden trees

0:19:350:19:39

# The world is waiting on the edge of the day

0:19:390:19:42

# Just waiting to say

0:19:420:19:46

# Good night. #

0:19:460:19:52

APPLAUSE

0:19:530:19:56

# Who means my happiness?

0:20:150:20:19

# Who would I answer yes to?

0:20:190:20:26

# Well, you ought to guess who

0:20:260:20:29

# Who

0:20:290:20:32

# No-one but you. #

0:20:320:20:39

APPLAUSE

0:20:390:20:41

Incorrigibly gregarious

0:20:530:20:57

in inexhaustible garrulity,

0:20:570:21:03

uninhibited in Hibernicism...

0:21:030:21:06

Irishness.

0:21:080:21:10

Mr Frank Carson!

0:21:100:21:13

Hi, lads! My, what a fantastic...

0:21:200:21:23

Hi!

0:21:230:21:24

HE LAUGHS

0:21:240:21:26

LAUGHTER

0:21:260:21:28

Was it something I said?

0:21:330:21:35

Well, I must say, once again, I'd like to thank the staff

0:21:370:21:40

here at the city varieties for the lovely lodgings.

0:21:400:21:43

A beautiful 29-bedroom, semidetached slum.

0:21:450:21:47

I knew it was semidetached

0:21:510:21:53

because it was moving away from the rest of the street.

0:21:530:21:55

A knock the door and it was an old Irish lady who came to the door.

0:21:580:22:01

79 years old.

0:22:010:22:03

Big, long, green dress, beautiful white hair

0:22:030:22:05

and one of the softest Irish accidents I've ever heard.

0:22:050:22:08

She said...

0:22:080:22:09

"What the hell d'you want, what are you doing here?!

0:22:090:22:12

"What the hell d'you want?"

0:22:120:22:13

I said, "Do you think the lady next door would give me a glass of water?"

0:22:190:22:23

HE LAUGHS

0:22:240:22:26

You see me laughing - I've heard them before.

0:22:260:22:29

Good comedian, me.

0:22:300:22:31

She said, "Come in to the dining room.

0:22:330:22:36

"I've prepared a running buffet."

0:22:360:22:38

Epsom salt sandwiches.

0:22:420:22:44

I was going up to the bathroom.

0:22:510:22:52

She says, "Have you a good memory for faces?"

0:22:570:23:00

I said, "I have - why?"

0:23:000:23:01

She says, "There's no mirror up there."

0:23:010:23:03

The old gags are the best, aren't they?

0:23:080:23:10

It's the way I tell them.

0:23:100:23:13

Her husband was a nice fella.

0:23:130:23:15

He was lying in bed, looking for work.

0:23:150:23:17

He got a card from the dole to go about a job

0:23:230:23:25

and he brought it to the police.

0:23:250:23:28

He said somebody had sent him a threatening letter.

0:23:280:23:31

I said, "Can you not get a job?"

0:23:320:23:36

He said, "There's no work at my trade."

0:23:360:23:38

I said, "What's your trade?"

0:23:400:23:42

He said, "I'm a coronation-flag seller."

0:23:420:23:44

I called into the bedroom.

0:23:500:23:52

I said, "I couldn't sleep in that bed last night.

0:23:520:23:54

"There was a dead flea in the bed."

0:23:540:23:57

She says, "A dead flea will do you no harm."

0:23:570:23:59

I said, "I know that, but there was 40,000 came to the funeral."

0:23:590:24:03

LAUGHTER AND APPLAUSE

0:24:030:24:06

She said, "This is a five-star hotel."

0:24:120:24:16

I said, "I know, I counted them through the slates in the roof."

0:24:160:24:20

And I said, "I'd like to talk to you about the ceiling in my bedroom.

0:24:200:24:24

She says, "What about it?"

0:24:240:24:26

I says, "I'd like one."

0:24:260:24:27

She says, "You needn't worry,

0:24:310:24:32

"cos the people upstairs won't walk about much.

0:24:320:24:37

"But they'll drop in now and again."

0:24:370:24:39

They had a funny way of dividing the chicken.

0:24:470:24:50

She said to the fellow, "What football team do you support?"

0:24:510:24:54

He said, "Scunthorpe." She gave him a left leg.

0:24:540:24:57

She says to the fella, "What team do you support?"

0:24:570:24:59

He said, "Cleethorpes." She gave him a right leg.

0:24:590:25:01

She says to me, "What team do you support?"

0:25:010:25:03

I said, "Arsenal, but I'm not hungry."

0:31:040:31:07

LAUGHTER

0:31:210:31:23

Well, I'm worn out before I start.

0:31:230:31:26

Do you know, I stand here like this, but I'm in a terrible agony.

0:31:260:31:30

-Aren't I? Speak.

-Yes.

0:31:300:31:32

He's as common as dirt. Do you know...

0:31:320:31:35

LAUGHTER

0:31:350:31:37

I stand up with all this damp weather...

0:31:370:31:40

I'm riddled with arthritis. I'm riddled.

0:31:400:31:42

-AUDIENCE:

-Aww...

-Yes, I am!

0:31:420:31:45

What a common audience.

0:31:450:31:47

The other day I was at home and, of course,

0:31:500:31:52

I don't get up too early, you know.

0:31:520:31:54

I've never been an early riser.

0:31:540:31:56

LAUGHTER

0:31:560:31:59

Isn't it funny? You always get the common lot on this side.

0:32:000:32:03

There came this knock on my door. I think, "Who could it be?" I thought.

0:32:060:32:09

Is it the postman - Pop-It-In Pete?

0:32:090:32:11

LAUGHTER

0:32:110:32:13

"Come in," I cried. It was Apricot Lil.

0:32:170:32:19

She came rushing in. I said, "Sit down, Lil," I said.

0:32:210:32:23

I've just got to do me legs.

0:32:230:32:26

She said... Listen, she said...

0:32:260:32:29

"Have you heard about the vicar?" I said, "What's he been up to now?"

0:32:290:32:32

She said, "Oh, terrible," she said.

0:32:320:32:34

She said, "Well, he was coming down the hillock the other day

0:32:340:32:37

"and he caught his surplus in the spokes."

0:32:370:32:40

And he'd thrown himself off, you see,

0:32:400:32:41

and he was going to sell his bicycle.

0:32:410:32:43

She said, "Now, you get around there as quick as you can, go round

0:32:430:32:46

"as quick as you can," she said, "and make him an offer he can't refuse."

0:32:460:32:49

Well, I said... LAUGHTER

0:32:490:32:51

I said, "What would I want a bicycle for?" I said.

0:32:560:32:59

"Everard and I have got the tandem."

0:32:590:33:03

She said, "Be independent. Because Brenda Allcock..."

0:33:030:33:07

She said, "She's just started a cycling club called

0:33:090:33:12

"the Wobbly Wheelers."

0:33:120:33:14

He said, "If you buy the vicar's bicycle, you can join us."

0:33:140:33:18

I said, "I'd like to feel a bit of freedom and it does me

0:33:180:33:21

"good to get me legs working, you know.

0:33:210:33:23

"This last few months I haven't felt so limp as I usually do."

0:33:230:33:26

You know.

0:33:260:33:28

Anyway, so I got myself all ready,

0:33:280:33:30

we met outside at ten o'clock on the Sunday morning. Everybody came.

0:33:300:33:34

There was Slack Alice, Apricot Lil, Easy Edna...

0:33:340:33:37

Once-A-Week Nora.

0:33:370:33:40

They were all there and, of course, Slack,

0:33:400:33:43

though she slept in a hedge all night,

0:33:430:33:45

she brought a packed lunch -

0:33:450:33:47

bottle of vodka and a banana.

0:33:470:33:49

LAUGHTER

0:33:490:33:51

He's anybody's for a doughnut.

0:33:560:33:58

UPROARIOUS LAUGHTER

0:33:580:34:00

I got on, you see, I was all right, I was comfortable,

0:34:060:34:09

I'd talcced the saddle.

0:34:090:34:10

And then...

0:34:100:34:12

They said, "Here we go."

0:34:130:34:14

Well, down we went, down through the lanes, through the field

0:34:140:34:17

and I was peddling, I was freewheeling, backpedalling,

0:34:170:34:20

doing the lot and then going down this hillock...

0:34:200:34:22

Do you know, I go cold when I think about it.

0:34:250:34:27

..this vision passed me doing about 90mph.

0:34:280:34:33

It was Slack Alice.

0:34:330:34:35

Her mouth was open, she was trying to say something.

0:34:360:34:40

Like, "Help."

0:34:400:34:42

Well...

0:34:460:34:47

I could see her going down.

0:34:550:34:57

Is he with you?

0:34:590:35:00

I could see her...

0:35:000:35:01

And I could see her going down the hillock and she turned

0:35:020:35:05

and she went into a farmyard.

0:35:050:35:07

I have never seen so many feathers in my life.

0:35:090:35:12

It's the first time I've seen chickens go up in the air

0:35:120:35:16

and come down plucked.

0:35:160:35:18

It's the truth.

0:35:240:35:26

We couldn't find her for an hour.

0:35:260:35:28

And when we found her, she was on top of the haystack.

0:35:280:35:31

I thought it was a scarecrow.

0:35:310:35:33

She got all straw stuck in her ears, she thought she'd gone deaf.

0:35:330:35:37

Anyway, it's the last time she went on her bicycle,

0:35:370:35:40

so we had a whip around, all of us, we had a whip around

0:35:400:35:42

and we bought her a tricycle now, so she'll be safe on that.

0:35:420:35:45

So if you see her out on a Sunday morning,

0:35:450:35:48

give her a wave and shout, "What a gay day!"

0:35:480:35:50

She'll always come back with two words for you, but...

0:35:520:35:55

Mind you, I've been very fortunate because, you see... Me legs,

0:35:570:36:00

you know, I mean, I get it all down, terrible...

0:36:000:36:03

-AUDIENCE:

-Aww.

-Oh, I do. Do you get it?

0:36:030:36:05
