It's A Right Carry On...



Sid James laughs at his own funny daydream
then his face goes as crinkly as a sock,
the 'Party 7' has a punctured seam,
Sid James laughs at his own funny daydream.
Lager goes flying out in a jet-stream,
he wipes his right eye and says "oh 'eck cock."
Sid James laughs at his own funny daydream,
then his face goes as crinkly as a sock.

Kenneth Williams is frying fish tonight,
chips and baked beans are on the menu too,
he shrieks for matron's wonderful insight,
Kenneth Williams is frying fish tonight.
He'll be doing it under the moonlight,
eat and be merry but please do not spew.
Kenneth Williams is frying fish tonight,
chips and baked beans are on the menu too.

Babs Windsor gets them out for all the lads,
her baps are legendary, to die for,
all of the jokers nudge and wink like cads,
Babs Windsor gets them out for all the lads.
Salt and pepper giggles sprinkle the scads,
she smiles brightly because she knows the score,
Babs Windsor gets them out for all the lads,
her baps are legendary, to die for.
