Can't you see I am singing? Can't you see I am singing?

0:05:440:05:47

Excuse me, sir. I have technical difficulties...

0:05:470:05:50

a broken cable, and now everything is frozen up.

0:05:500:05:54

-Everything is frozen up?

-Yes.

0:05:540:05:56

I think you made a mistake in coming here. This is a smart room.

0:05:560:05:59

This is the very last thing what I ask of you.

0:05:590:06:01

-You go back to your business...

-Offstage.

-..whatever to do.

0:06:010:06:04

-Keep your hands there.

-Here?

0:06:040:06:06

Ma guarda un po cosa vi succede! Che maleducato!

0:06:060:06:10

Suppose we meet some day in a swimming pool for these experiments?

0:06:140:06:18

-No, no, we must do it here.

-Do it here.

0:06:180:06:20

Impossible to play the serious music!

0:07:210:07:24

I would like to conclude this recital with a very serious performance

0:07:240:07:28

which I think no other tenor has done before.

0:07:280:07:31

I will sing for you the famous Italian romance

0:07:310:07:34

Non Ti Scordar Di Me, La Vita Mia Legata A Te,

0:07:340:07:37

which means in English

0:07:370:07:38

"Mama...

0:07:380:07:39

"Mama, you work so hard all your life for me.

0:07:410:07:43

"Now that you are old you can work for yourself."

Maestro, prego.

0:11:160:11:20

Ah! I'm going to...

0:11:200:11:23

It's a very cheeky question, really, isn't it,

0:11:230:11:26

"Who were you with last night?"?

0:11:260:11:29

Could get you into trouble!

0:11:290:11:31

Mind you, I'm not much of a judge about men,

0:11:310:11:33

because I haven't had many chaps in my life.

0:11:330:11:36

-AUDIENCE:

-Awww!

-No, honestly! No, no!

0:11:360:11:39

I can be honest with you now. My whole life, I've had three fellas.

0:11:390:11:43

-AUDIENCE:

-Oh...

0:11:430:11:44

No, no! No, I tell a lie.

0:11:440:11:46

I've had 82.

0:11:460:11:48

Yeah, I forgot that weekend at Batley.

0:11:510:11:54

But we were... Harold and I... I've gone off the subject.

0:11:570:12:01

Harold and I were in the public park.

0:12:010:12:03

We were the only couple there, I think.

0:12:030:12:05

And we were on the verge.

0:12:050:12:08

Well, it's more comfortable than that wooden bench.

0:12:080:12:11

And he grabbed hold of me and he said,

0:12:110:12:14

"Beryl, where do we go from here?"

0:12:140:12:18

"Nowhere," I said, removing his hands.

0:12:180:12:20

"You've reached the three-mile limit."

0:12:200:12:23

I thought, "Well, there must be something better for me

0:12:230:12:25

"than Harold and the recreation ground,"

0:12:250:12:28

and next morning, when I was reading the Tory Times, there it was.

0:12:280:12:33

There was an advertisement that said,

0:12:330:12:36

"Wanted - parlourmaid with breeding.

0:12:360:12:38

"Apply Gaylord Havisham,

0:12:380:12:41

"The Grange, Turnham Green."

0:12:410:12:44

Well, it was marvellous!

0:12:440:12:46

It could have been aimed at me, the breeding bit, you know.

0:12:460:12:49

Cos I speak two languages.

0:12:500:12:52

I'm what you could call bifocal.

0:12:520:12:55

And so I applied for the job personally,

0:12:550:12:59

and I was ushered in, and there was Gaylord Havisham.

0:12:590:13:02

Oh, he was wonderful! He was loaded with culture.

0:13:020:13:07

Mostly physical...

0:13:070:13:09

..I'm glad to say.

0:13:100:13:12

And, erm, he said, "How would you like to be

0:13:120:13:17

"the mistress of this house?"

0:13:170:13:19

I said, "How dare you?!"

0:13:190:13:22

Well, I thought that was something between a master

0:13:220:13:25

and a mattress, you see.

0:13:250:13:26

APPLAUSE

0:13:270:13:29

"No, you've mistaken me. I want you to be my wife.

0:13:310:13:34

"If I kiss you, will you reciprocate?"

0:13:340:13:38

Well, I hadn't got me dictionary with me, you see, so I...

0:13:380:13:41

Well, I got carried away then, and I couldn't help but accept,

0:13:420:13:46

and of course there was only one thing left for him to say.

0:13:460:13:49

And, being a perfect gentleman, he said it so beautifully.
