  • Lester from New York City, NyI believe the lyrics speak for themselves
  • Denise from Midland, MiThis song and skit combined for one of the biggest laughs I've ever had. If anyone knows where I might be able to get a copy of the video, or under what name the skit might list, I'd be very appreciative of the information.
  • Pete from Nowra, Australiawell they don't write them like that anymore ...... maybe thats a good thing..different though
  • Gavin from Dundee, ScotlandThe music is from the Gracie Fields song (and film) Sing As We Go. It's difficult trying to explain to some elderly parents why you're laughing at Gracie Fields singing :-)
  • Josh from Plainview, NyThis song was performed at "Concert for George". After the song was over they mooned the audience. Not a pleasant site, but it was still funny
  • Patrick from Boston, MaThis song is also on the CD "Monty Python Sings" (cat. # 86253 - 1992). This is a great compilation of the Pythons' songs from the Flying Circus and Movies.
