# Now, when I was a boy, me mother's pride and joy

0:04:320:04:35

# She gave me a whistle, this is it

0:04:350:04:39

# And no matter where I go, land of hope or picture show

0:04:390:04:43

# Me little whistle always makes a hit

0:04:430:04:47

# It's been a pal to me, it's as easy as can be

0:04:470:04:51

# To blow it doesn't use up any gristle

0:04:510:04:55

# A lady came to tea, and when she smiled at me

0:04:550:04:59

# I blew a little blast on me whistle

0:04:590:05:03

# Once in a country lane, while sheltering from the rain

0:05:030:05:07

# I soon found out I was not alone

0:05:070:05:11

# I heard a sound like this

0:05:110:05:14

# It must have been a kiss

0:05:140:05:16

# Two lovers thinking they were on their own

0:05:160:05:20

# They carried on disgraceful, I went all goosey like

0:05:200:05:24

# But when the lady shouted, "Stop it, Cecil!"

0:05:240:05:28

# I took it for a hint, I had a little squint

0:05:280:05:32

# And I couldn't blow a blast on me whistle

0:05:320:05:36

# Well, I'm married now, I really don't know how

0:05:360:05:40

# To tell you of the news that came today

0:05:400:05:44

# I've a little son and heir

0:05:440:05:46

# Just one, no, not a pair

0:05:460:05:49

0:05:490:05:51

# I'm feeling very proud, but I mustn't talk so loud

0:05:530:05:56

# I've been celebrating at the Rose and Thistle

0:05:560:06:00

# He's a lovely little kid and the first thing that he did

0:06:000:06:05

# Was to blow a little blast on his whistle. #

0:06:050:06:08

Oh, you want more?

0:06:170:06:19

Well, you are a lovely audience,

0:06:300:06:32

I'll sing the verse and you can all join in the chorus. Off we go, Bert.

0:06:320:06:35

# I'm leaning on a lamp

0:06:380:06:42

# Maybe you think I look a tramp

0:06:420:06:47

# Maybe you think I'm hanging round to steal a car

0:06:470:06:52

# But, no, I'm not a crook

0:06:560:07:00

# And if you think that's what I look

0:07:000:07:04

# I'll tell you why I'm here and what my motives are... #

0:07:040:07:10

Come on, you all know it, let's hear you sing.

HE SCATS

0:07:490:07:51

# There's no other girl I would wait for

0:07:510:07:55

# But this one, I'd break any date for

0:07:550:08:00

# I won't have to ask what she's late for... #

0:08:000:08:04

Your turn.

0:08:040:08:05

# She wouldn't leave me flat, she's not a girl like that

0:08:050:08:09

# Now, she is absolutely wonderful and marvellous and beautiful

0:08:090:08:14

# And everyone can understand why

0:08:140:08:18

# I'm leaning on a lamppost at the corner of the street

0:08:180:08:22

0:34:310:34:36

That's great(!)

0:34:580:35:01

Well, I must say it is great to be appearing here.

0:35:480:35:51

I have to get out of this lot. Well done, Albert.

0:35:530:35:56

Have we got everything here? Sorry about that, ladies and gentlemen.

0:35:560:36:00

Sorry about that.

0:36:000:36:02

I did so want to make a good entrance, too.

0:36:020:36:07

Because tonight I have a duty to perform, ladies and gentlemen.

0:36:080:36:11

A duty that I feel should have been performed many, many years ago.

0:36:110:36:15

I do feel that this should have been performed many years ago and

0:36:150:36:22

I'm going to perform it now.

0:36:220:36:24

That's why I brought this.

0:36:270:36:29

HE PLAYS FANFARE

0:36:290:36:32

There has never been a tribute to our Leonard.

0:36:400:36:44

APPLAUSE

0:36:470:36:50

Stalwart of The Good Old Days for years.

0:36:580:37:02

His intellect and poignant sense of humour can only be compared

0:37:020:37:08

to Will Shakespeare's.

0:37:080:37:10

His dextrous handling of the English language leaves giants

0:37:140:37:19

clawing helpless in the wake

0:37:190:37:23

with words like interdecontaminationallyistical.

0:37:230:37:28

There is no-one else the challenge up will take.

0:37:300:37:33

Not even Shake.

0:37:380:37:40

Sartorially his garmenture is perfect.

0:37:420:37:46

His coiffeur is flawless to a hair.

0:37:470:37:50

His manicure defies deluxe description.

0:37:500:37:54

But he's got a shiny bottom on his chair.

0:37:540:37:56

As he sits there behind lumined candle,

0:38:010:38:05

his career we can finally unravel.

0:38:050:38:08

Who would think that he once wrote to Barney Coleham,

0:38:090:38:13

"Am available, have gavel and will travel."

0:38:130:38:16

And there he's sat for many generations...

0:38:270:38:30

LAUGHTER It's true.

0:38:330:38:35

But one point I am rather loathe to push, the reason Barney

0:38:380:38:43

has kept there for eons,

0:38:430:38:45

to give him time to learn the words to Bull And Bush.

0:38:450:38:48

The white gloves we tend to take for granted,

0:38:550:38:59

we notice not the laundered musketeer.

0:38:590:39:03

Unblemished shirt front and a rigid collar,

0:39:060:39:09

we forget the shiny bottom on the chair.

0:39:090:39:12

But now it is time to recognise allegiance, devotion,

0:39:150:39:20

in heterogeneous ways. Yes.

0:39:200:39:23

A long overdue tribute to our Leonard.

0:39:240:39:27

Without him, there'd be no good in Good Old Days.

0:39:270:39:33

Come on, Albert.

0:39:340:39:36

There we are, thank you very much, Albert.

0:39:430:39:46

My final rendering tonight, I think we should attempt some

0:40:030:40:07

form of record and for this I'm going to give you a medley.

0:40:070:40:11

There are plenty of singalongs and swimalongs and all kinds

0:40:110:40:14

of things but this is a medley called Singalong If You Can.

0:40:140:40:18

The idea is as soon as one song reminds you of another one, you have

0:40:180:40:21

to switch to the new song.

0:40:210:40:24

The idea is something like...

0:40:240:40:26

# On a wonderful day like today...

0:40:260:40:28

# Daisy, Daisy. #

0:40:280:40:30

See what I mean? There is only one rule.

0:40:300:40:33

We're not allowed to repeat any song. Nothing must be repeated.

0:40:330:40:37

Thank you, Mr Pianist.

0:40:370:40:39

# On a wonderful day like today

0:40:400:40:44
