‘This Be The Verse’: Eric Morecambe Edition
They bring you sunshine, M. and Wise:
They may not mean to, but they do.
They give all gags the script supplies
And add some extra, just for you.
But they were scripted overall
By blokes with hats and smoker-wheeze,
Who half the time were Music Hall
Man/piano (it’s plays-what-he-wrotes):
Though Previn says it’s not thus scored. Ah!
He’s playing all of the right notes,
Though not necessarily in the right order.
