Thanks for that, Ross. I regard this as amongst Mr Baxter's masterworks, all the more so as the entire notion of Folk Parody itself becomes parodied to quite sublime, and unsettling, effect. In recent performances at he's rendered the ending as:

Who'll go to Morecambe? Who'll go to Morecambe?
Who'll go to Morecambe, to Morecambe with me?
"O I will" said that young man, in the Care of the Community!
"I`ll go to Morecambe, to Morecambe with thee!"
