  • Isn't it awfully nice to have a penis
    Isn't it frightfully good to have a dong
    It's swell to have a stiffy
    It's divine to own a dick
    From the tiniest little tadger
    To the world's biggest prick
    So, three cheers for your Willy or John Thomas
    Hooray for your one-eyed trouser snake
    Your piece of pork, your wife's best friend
    Your Percy, or your cock
    You can wrap it up in ribbons
    You can slip it in your sock
    But don't take it out in public
    Or they will stick you in the dock
    And you won't come about

  • Musicmama from New York, NyGood one, Pete. And, yes, Monty Python is/were the greatest comics of the last 50 or so years.

    I used to be a man. But as a woman, I find this song even funnier than I did before!
  • Hatty from Harrogate, EnglandThis is so funny It's unbelievable
