Brilliant, though I did see a documentary of his life that suggested he was not the nicest of men.

That's normally the way with funny people Rebbonk seldom are they nice to live with too. Who ever wrote it was a genius.

Funnily enough I was thinking about the song only yesterday. I finally realised that when he said "Do you want it pasteurised?" she thought he said "Do you want it past your eyes?"! :lol:

Incidentally there was a live studio version of the song in which he dressed as a cowboy and has never been repeated on television. Rumour has it Benny was sued by Frank Gallop for copying Irving: The Hundred and Forty-Second Fastest Gun in the West and as part of the settlement Benny agreed never to perform the song again.

I'm not 100% certain this is the version I saw either:
