All the world's a stage they say
And I've seen many things
Standing with my little ukulele in the wings

I've seen bearded ladies
And strong men with iron bars
I've seen cheeky chorus girls
Hob-nobbing with the stars
Yes all the world's a stage they say
And I've seen many things
Standing with my little ukulele in the wings

Once a leading lady
Was clearly in distress
She asked if I could help her
With the fasteners on her dress
You should have seen the outcome
I almost broke me strings
Standing with my little ukulele in the wings

I've seen song and dance men
Being heckled by cat-calls
And a buxom bareback rider
Make a juggler drop his clubs
Yes all the world's a stage
And you won't believe the things
I've seen standing with my little
Standing with my little
Standing with my little ukulele in the wings

Weh-heh-heh-hell standing-a
With-a my little-a
Ukuleleinthewi-ings-AH!

    General CommentI believe this is Neil Innes solo, but regardless - clearly a George Formby parody/homage...
