  • Steve from Wakefield, United KingdomThe song is a parody of Frank Gallop's 'Ballad Of Irving' which made number 34 on the Billboard chart in 1966. Strangely, this song had also been a parody of Lorne Greene's 'Ringo' of 2 years previous. A parody of a parody one would say?
  • Mark from Byrdstown, TnWow I love Benny Hill.He was very talented and very funny.He wrote most of the witty songs on his shows.Long Live Benny Hill!
