# When Hackenschmidt ran second in the Derby last July

0:34:200:34:24

# I was standing on the corner of the street

0:34:240:34:28

# And a fellow dressed in uniform could easily see that I

0:34:280:34:32

# Was standing at the corner of the street

0:34:320:34:36

# He treated me and told me that the country needed men

0:34:360:34:39

# In Life Guards clothes he said I'd look a treat

0:34:390:34:43

# And he gave to me a shilling and I signed my name and then

0:34:430:34:47

# I was standing at the corner of the street

0:34:470:34:51

# And for standing at the corner of the street

0:34:510:34:54

# They dressed me up with spurs upon me feet

0:34:540:34:58

# They put me on a horse's back to teach me how to ride

0:34:580:35:01

# When I fell off the riding master came to me and cried

0:35:010:35:06

# However did you come to be a soldier?!

0:35:060:35:09

# I replied...

0:35:090:35:11

# I was standing at the corner of the street... #

0:35:110:35:14

-Silly question, really, wasn't it?

-LAUGHTER

0:35:140:35:17

# Now years ago when just a lad instead of going to school

0:35:180:35:22

# I was

0:35:220:35:23

# Standing at the corner of the street... #

0:35:230:35:26

-How quick you are.

-LAUGHTER

0:35:260:35:27

# I landed there at ten o'clock I made it quite a rule to be

0:35:290:35:32

# Standing at the corner of the street

0:35:320:35:35

# Well, the teacher came and caught me

0:35:350:35:37

# I fair trembled at the knees

0:35:370:35:39

# You're late again! Then he kicked me with his feet... #

0:35:390:35:43

-WOMAN:

-A shame.

0:35:430:35:44

LAUGHTER

0:35:440:35:46

# He said pray tell me the reason

0:35:460:35:48

# I was

0:35:500:35:52

# Standing at the corner of the street

0:35:520:35:54

# And for standing at the corner of the street

0:35:540:35:57

# In store for you he said, I've got a treat

0:35:570:36:01

# Then he laid me on a form and with his cane he gave a frown

0:36:010:36:05

# He put some stripes upon my pants

0:36:050:36:08

# They were pink, red, white and brown

0:36:080:36:11

# And after that for many a day instead of sitting down

0:36:110:36:14

# I was

0:36:140:36:16

# Standing at the corner of the street. #

0:36:160:36:18

I've just recovered, actually.

0:36:210:36:22

LAUGHTER

0:36:220:36:23

# Now the other day as usual instead of going a walk I was

0:36:230:36:28

# Standing at the corner of the street

0:36:280:36:31

# And two men came running up to me with faces white as chalk

0:36:310:36:35

# I was standing at the corner of the street

0:36:350:36:38

# They said a bull has just escaped He's absolutely mad

0:36:380:36:42

# He's knocked a dozen policemen off their feet

0:36:420:36:46

# And there's only one man strong enough

0:36:460:36:48

# To catch that bull they cried And he is

0:36:480:36:50

# Standing at the corner of the street

0:36:500:36:54

# Well, I was standing at the corner of the street... #

0:36:540:36:57

LAUGHTER

0:36:570:36:58

# And I said to them we'll soon stop his retreat

0:36:580:37:02

# Now one of you stand here like this

0:37:020:37:05

# And show him something red

0:37:050:37:07

# The other one must grab his horns

0:37:070:37:10

# And hold on to his head... #

0:37:100:37:11

LAUGHTER

0:37:110:37:12

# They both said where will you be?

0:37:120:37:15

# I turned round and said

0:37:150:37:18

# I'll be standing at the corner of the street. #

0:37:180:37:22

Now, it seems to me,

0:37:340:37:36

Mr Chairman, they're in the mood for a nice, rousing chorus number.

0:37:360:37:39

-Would you agree?

-I agree ho...wholeheartedly.

0:37:390:37:42

-Oh.

0:37:420:37:44

That's nice, isn't it?

0:37:460:37:47

Ho-ho-heartedly, yes. Very good, yes.

0:37:470:37:49

Well, I would like you to approach this with gay abandonment,

0:37:490:37:52

-if that's all right?

-WOLF WHISTLE FROM AUDIENCE

0:37:520:37:54

Should be easy for you two, cos you look a bit gay,

0:37:540:37:56

and I think she's been abandoned.

0:37:560:37:57

-LAUGHTER

-Listen.

0:38:190:38:22

# He grew a great big marrow for the local flower show

0:38:220:38:26

# And when the story got around they came from far and wide

0:38:260:38:30

# And when they saw the size of it everybody cried

0:38:300:38:35

# Ooooh! What a beauty!

0:38:350:38:39

# I never seen one as big as that before

0:38:390:38:42

# Ooooh! What a beauty!

0:38:420:38:46

# It must be two feet long or even more

0:38:460:38:50

# It's such a lovely colour and nice and round and fat

0:38:500:38:54

# I never thought a marrow could grow as big as that

0:38:540:38:57

# What a beauty!

0:38:590:39:01

# I never seen one as big as that before

0:39:010:39:03

# Now he was leaning on the garden gate the other day

0:39:070:39:10

# And he beckoned to a lady who lived just across the way

0:39:100:39:14

# He took her down the garden and he showed it her with pride

0:39:140:39:18

# And when she saw the size of it...

0:39:180:39:20

# The little lady sighed

0:39:200:39:25

-# Ooooh! What a beauty... #

-Come on!

# Well, then the flower show was held

0:39:570:39:58

# And everybody went

0:39:580:40:00

# To see the great big marrow lying there inside the tent

0:40:000:40:03

# And then judges came along to give the prizes out

0:40:030:40:07

# They only took one look at it and they began to shout

0:40:070:40:13

# Ooooh! What a beauty!
