Austerity?

I don't think so.

0:08:190:08:21

I don't think so.

0:08:210:08:23

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:09:350:09:37

Thank you very much, yeah.

0:09:400:09:42

Before I was rudely interrupted by Chris, our guitarist,

0:09:440:09:47

when we started the band in 1946-47,

0:09:470:09:50

just after the Second World War...

0:09:500:09:53

..we used to rehearse in Monsieur Barso's bedroom.

0:09:550:09:58

CHEERING

0:09:580:10:00

Unsung hero. Look at him.

0:10:020:10:04

He's glowing with pride.

0:10:040:10:06

Who could have imagined?

0:10:080:10:10

I remember one time we were playing this song

0:10:110:10:13

and I thought, that ain't bad.

0:10:130:10:15

And...

0:10:180:10:19

# My girl's mad at me

0:10:370:10:39

# I didn't want to see the film tonight

0:10:420:10:44

# I found it hard to say

0:10:460:10:47

# She thought I'd had enough of her

0:10:490:10:52

# Why can't she see

0:10:530:10:55

# She's lovely to me

0:10:570:10:59

# But I like to stay in

0:11:010:11:03

# And watch TV on my own

0:11:030:11:07

# Every now and then

0:11:070:11:09

Not the football again!

0:11:090:11:11

# My girl's mad at me

0:11:130:11:15

# Been on the telephone for an hour

0:11:170:11:19

# And we hardly said a word

0:11:210:11:23

# I tried and tried but I could not be heard

0:11:250:11:28

# Why can't I explain

0:11:280:11:30

# Why do I feel this pain

0:11:320:11:34

# Cos everything I say

0:11:360:11:38

# She doesn't understand

0:11:380:11:40

# She doesn't realise

0:11:400:11:42

# And takes it all the wrong way

0:11:420:11:44

Hey, Monsieur Barso!

0:11:440:11:47

KEYBOARD SOLO

0:11:490:11:51

# My girl's mad at me

0:12:040:12:06

# We argued just the other night

0:12:080:12:10

# I thought we'd got it straight

0:12:120:12:14

# We talked and talked until it was light

0:12:160:12:18

# And I thought we'd agreed

0:12:200:12:22

# I thought we'd talked it out

0:12:230:12:25

# Now when I try to speak

0:12:270:12:29

# She says that I don't care

0:12:290:12:31

# She says I'm unaware

0:12:310:12:33

# And then she says I'm weak. #

0:12:330:12:35

CHEERING AND APPLAUSE

0:12:480:12:51

I dedicate this to Chris. It's his favourite song.

0:12:550:12:58

He never tires of playing this one.

0:13:000:13:02

# I tell you I didn't do it

0:13:150:13:18

# Cos I wasn't there

0:13:180:13:19

# Don't blame me, it just isn't fair

0:13:190:13:22

# You listened to their side Now listen to mine

0:13:220:13:25

# Can't think of a story

0:13:250:13:27

# Sure you'll find me some time

0:13:270:13:29

# Now pass the blame and don't blame me

0:13:290:13:32

# Just close your eyes and count to three

0:13:360:13:39

Come on!

0:13:390:13:40

One, two, three!

0:13:400:13:43

# Then I'll be gone and you'll forget

0:13:430:13:45

# The broken window, TV set

0:13:490:13:52

# Well, it wasn't me either I'm just his mate

0:13:540:13:58

# He told me to stand here and watch the gate

0:13:580:14:01

# I've got a wife and three kids, you know

0:14:010:14:04

# They'll tell you I'm straight, at least I think so

0:14:050:14:08

# I'm as honest as the day is long

0:14:080:14:10

# The longer the daylight, the less I do wrong

0:14:100:14:14

# Now pass the blame and don't blame me

0:14:150:14:18

# Just close your eyes and count to three

0:14:210:14:24

One, two, three!

0:14:260:14:28

# Then I'll be gone and I'll forget

0:15:330:15:36

# That what you give is what you get. #

0:15:390:15:42

Unfortunately.

0:15:430:15:45

What you give is what you get.
