THE RASPBERRY SONG (Milligan) The Goons - 1978 Harry Secombe as SECOMBE Spike Milligan as ECCLES & MORIARTY Peter Sellers as BLOODNOK & BLUEBOTTLE (Moriarty) Oh, oh! Let me out -- my only crime is eating (Secombe) Don't worry -- I'll give the screws a song. The warden won't mind (Bloodnok) No -- he's doing bird as well. Maestro (Moriarty) Take your partners for the ball and chain one step. One, two, three (Bloodnok) May I have this dance warden, you can hold my ball (Secombe) In a little prison where I'm locked in there is a most pecular fellow His name is Eccles and he's is in cell nine But his voice is soft and mellow He keeps a fruit cart in his cell, and all the convicts knows it He doesn't sing or rave about his fruit -- he simply blows it (Bloodnok) He's doing it all night long (Secombe) It's better than any song No, it isn't very pretty, but you've got to admit its cute (Bloodnok) Never, never (Secombe) So all together let it go -- eat more fruit! (Bloodnok) Don't tell me he's come to stay (Secombe) Let the wardens here him say Fruit's in season! Let's be merry! Apples, plums and the old raspberry Everything is fresh today (Bloodnok) Don't let him get near me, please! (Secombe) Every Friday night when work is done He does not wastes a minute To the prison warden he hurries 'round where he sings just like a linnet To hear him blow a melody its great, you can't deny it And if you've nothing else to do, we'd like the screws to try it (Bloodnok) No more, please! (Secombe) Get ready and do it now (Eccles) The crazy man, you know how (Bloodnok) God knows it isn't very pretty (Secombe) You've got to admit it's cute (Bloodnok) Well.... (Secombe) All together let it go -- eat more fruit (Bloodnok) There isn't a cure they say! (Secombe) Let the screws all hear him say: (Eccles) Don't eat farm laid [wow!] (Secombe) Every thing is fresh today (Bluebottle) Hello everybody, remember me, Bluebottle? I'm fourteen now and I have got boils....... Though I don't look very pretty, I'm wearing my new brown suit. The only trouble with it is when I go outside I'm struck by fruit. (Bloodnok) Don't point him at him I say (Secombe) It's a treat to hear him play Fruit's in season, plums and berries Apples, pears and the old raspberry (All) Everything is fresh to day (Bloodnok) Someone open a window, please! ***** EVERYTHING IS FRESH TODAY Jack Hodges (with Sid Geening & His Band) In a little town where I belong There's a most accomplished fellow He's the leader of the village choir And his voice is warm and mellow He drives a fruit cart around the street And everybody knows it He doesn't sing or rave about his fruit He simply blows it (Comical noise) He's doing it all day long (Comical noise) It's better than any song Though it isn't very pretty You've got to admit it's cute So, all together, let it go (Comical noise) Eat more fruit (Comical Noise) It's certainly come to stay (Comical Noise) It's a treat to hear him say Hey, fruit's in season, plenty berries Apples, plums and the old raspberries (Comical noise) Everything is fresh today Every Friday night when work is done He never wastes a minute To the village hall he hurries 'round Where he sings just like a linnet To hear him blow a melody It's great, you can't deny it And if you've nothing else to do I'd like you all to try it (Comical noise) Get ready and do it now (Comical noise) It's easy when you know how Though it isn't very pretty You've got to admit it's cute So, all together, let it go (Comical noise) Eat more fruit (Comical Noise) It's certainly come to stay (Comical Noise) It's a treat to hear him say Hey, do-te-la-so-fa-me-re-do (Comical noise) Everything is fresh today (Comical Noise) It's certainly come to stay (Comical Noise) It's a treat to hear him say Hey, fruit's in season, plenty berries Apples, plums and the old raspberries (Comical noise) Everything is fresh today (Comical noise) (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - November 2005) *****
