Hi,

I am wondering does anybody have the tune or an MP3 of a song by Ronnie Barker called: "Not Too Tall and Not Too Short"? Any help would be appreciated.

Well, Curious Clouseau, you're in luck.

It was part of "Lines From My Grandfather's Forehead" on Radio 4 Extra about 1/2 hour ago. Get it on "Listen again". It's brilliant and always makes me smile.

Best

Is that the song that goes

Not too tall,
Not too short,
Not too thick or thin.
She must go out where she should go out,
And go in where she should go in.
She musn't have much too much behind,
Or much too little in front.
If ever I have a girl again,
That's the girl I want.

If so, I've been after it for years!!

"Lines From My Grandfather's Forehead" is also available on CD see, for example,

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ronnie-Barkers-Grandfathers-Forehead-Classic/dp/1408467380/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1371035450&sr=1-1&keywords=%22Lines+From+My+Grandfather%27s+Forehead%22

Not Too Tall is track 17 on CD2 of this set.

The full lyrics are in Ronnie Barkers' book "All I Ever Wrote": 600+ pages of all his scripts, songs, plays etc. Well worth the price
