TC7his song can be found on the CD "The World of Benny Hill - Benny Hill Sings?" which includes 25 of his comedy classics. It also appeared on an old vinyl recording, "The Golden Hour of Benny Hill." Incidentally, C///\ = C chord strummed down three times and up once.

Now it was CChristmas Day in the jailhouse, the Fold man sat in his G7cell, "CPut out your pudding, for trico," he Fheard the warden G7yell, "If you want Ctrico on your Fpudding, put it Cout without deFlay." The Cold man put out his pudding, and the G7warden took it aCway.

Chorus

What a G7world, (what a world) what a Cplace, (what a place) Ain't you Fglad you're a member G7of the human Crace. G7 Now the Cfolksinger came from America to Fsing at the Albert G7Hall, He Csang his songs of protest and Ffairer shares for G7all, He Csang how the poor were Fmuch too poor and the Crich too rich by Ffar, Then Che drove back to his penthouse in his G7brand new Rolls Royce Ccar.

Chorus

CHer brother Jackie's in prison doing Fthree years for forgeG7ry, Her Csister Josie's in FHolloway, in CDockmoor is her Uncle FJim, And her Cdad runs a pirate radio ship, but G7she never talks about Chim.

Chorus

G7 Now Cthree old maids had a she-cat, Fkept her indoors night and G7day, CKept her away from the he-cats, thought she'd Flike it better that G7way, Then Cone old maid went and got Fmarried, the next Cmorning she hastened to Fwrite, A Cnote to the others which simply said, "Let G7kitty out toCnight."

Chorus

G7 Now the Cbutton was pressed, the world destroyed leaving Fjust one solitary G7man, And at the Ctop of the Empire State Building his Flonely existance beG7gan, But his Cloneliness was too Fmuch so he jumped and he Cfell like a bird with one Fwing, And Cas he passed the seventh floor, G7 he heard the telephone Cring.

Chorus

PS- I don't know what 'trico' is, or if it's spelled correctly, but that's just the way it sounds. (c: This is one in a series of Benny Hill songs I've learned by ear. Most of these songs have only three chords which makes it easy figure them out. I might have missed some chords or put the wrong ones down, but the basic structure is there at any rate. I welcome any comments, corrections or suggestions for improvement.
