# Oh, they say some people long ago

0:25:200:25:28

# Were searching for a different tune

0:25:280:25:31

# One that they could croon

0:25:310:25:33

# As only they can

0:25:330:25:38

# They only had the rhythm, so

0:25:420:25:47

# They started swaying to and fro

0:25:480:25:53

# They didn't know just what to use

0:25:530:25:56

# This is how the blues

0:25:560:25:59

# Really began

0:25:590:26:04

# They heard the trees in the breeze

0:26:080:26:14

# Singing weird melodies

0:26:140:26:19

# And they made that

0:26:190:26:21

# The start of the blues

0:26:230:26:25

# And from a jail

0:26:270:26:30

# Came a wail

0:26:300:26:33

# Of a down-hearted frail

0:26:330:26:37

# And they made that

0:26:370:26:41

# As a part of the blues

0:26:410:26:44

# From a whippoorwill

0:26:460:26:49

# Way high on a hill

0:26:490:26:51

# They took a new note

0:26:510:26:53

# Oh, they pushed it through a horn

0:26:550:26:57

# Until it was born

0:26:570:27:00

# Into a blue note

0:27:000:27:02

# And there they nursed it

0:27:040:27:07

# Rehearsed it

0:27:080:27:10

# And they gave out the news

0:27:100:27:14

# That the Southland

0:27:140:27:18

# Gave birth to the blues, oh!

0:27:180:27:21

Don't ever let it be said that I tell Irish gags, because I do not.

0:35:490:35:53

DISBELIEVING LAUGHTER

0:35:530:35:54

The Irish are not thick, they're unlucky.

0:35:540:35:57

Do you realise, in 1704, the Irish invented the toilet seat

0:35:570:36:02

and, in 1705, the English put a hole in it?

0:36:020:36:05

Unlucky!

0:36:050:36:06

No, it's all aggravation nowadays. I don't know.

0:36:100:36:13

I used to like the papers. I don't have them any more now.

0:36:130:36:15

The only thing I used to like reading was the obituary column.

0:36:150:36:18

Always amazes me how people die in alphabetical order.

0:36:180:36:22

My old grandad, you know, my old grandad was in the Army.

0:36:280:36:32

Do you know, he had over 300 German heads to his credit.

0:36:320:36:35

And he had his own little way of doing it.

0:36:350:36:37

He'd get the rifle on top of the trench with

0:36:370:36:39

the telescopic sights, and he used to go, "Oi, Fritz!"

0:36:390:36:43

"Ja?"

0:36:430:36:44

Ping!

0:36:440:36:46

The German general come along, he said,

0:36:460:36:48

"Vot is ze matter with you idiots?

0:36:480:36:50

"Zis Englischer is shouting out, 'Hoi, Fritz.'

0:36:500:36:53

"You, like a doughnut, stick your head up...

0:36:530:36:56

"and getting the ping in the here!

0:36:560:36:57

"Vy don't you do ze same as him? Call out, 'Hi, Tommy.'

0:36:570:37:00

"Ven he sticks his head up, you ping him!"

0:37:000:37:03

"Ja, mein General, I try zis.

0:37:030:37:05

"Hello, Tommy!"

0:37:050:37:07

"Is that you, Fritz?"

Do you know, ladies and gentlemen, many, many times,

0:37:180:37:21

when I go in clubs and places like that,

0:37:210:37:23

I'm always talking about my old missus, you know,

0:37:230:37:25

always having a little pop at her, but I tell you something.

0:37:250:37:28

I really love that old girl of mine, I do.

0:37:280:37:30

And if I may, just tonight,

0:37:300:37:32

I'd like to tell you how much I think about her.

0:37:320:37:34

Maestro? BAND STRIKES UP

0:37:340:37:36

HE CLEARS HIS THROAT

0:37:360:37:38

You know, I've got a pal

0:37:430:37:45

A regular out-and-outer

0:37:450:37:48

And she's a dear, good old girl

0:37:480:37:50

And I'll tell you all about her

0:37:500:37:53

You know, it's many years since first we met

0:37:530:37:57

And her hair was then as black as jet

0:37:570:38:00

It's whiter now, but she don't fret

0:38:000:38:03

Not my old girl.

0:38:040:38:06

# We've been together now

0:38:090:38:13

# For 40 years

0:38:130:38:15

# And it don't seem a day too much

0:38:170:38:21

# Cos there ain't a lady living in the land

0:38:220:38:28

# That I'd swap for my dear old dutch

0:38:300:38:34

# There ain't a lady living in the land

0:38:350:38:41

# As I'd swap for my dear old dutch... #

0:38:420:38:46

You know, I calls her Sal

0:38:520:38:55

But her proper name is Sarah

0:38:560:38:59

And you may find a girl, well, as you consider fairer

0:38:590:39:04

I tell you what, she ain't an angel

0:39:040:39:07

Gawd, she could start a-jawin' till it makes you smart

0:39:070:39:12

Well, she's just a woman

0:39:120:39:14

That's all right

0:39:140:39:16

That's my old girl.

0:39:170:39:19
