Does anyone have the full lyrics to the following song. I heard it been sung by Kenneth Williams on television a number of years ago.

I'm out with me barrow on the streets all day
Hawking me greens about
Nice cauliflowers you can be ours
You will hear me shout (I'm here girls)
Nice French beans, curly little greens
And your spuds all nice and brown
And if you boil them half an hour, they're like a ball of flower
And me rhubarb is the best in all the town

I Googled with several phrases from your quote, and came up with nothing. Looking up information about Kenneth Williams didn't help either.

At least this will serve to refresh the thread.

Well, now I know who Kenneth Williams is.

There are a few words I hear differently:

I'm out with me barrow on the streets all day,
Hawkin' me greens about.
Nice cauliflowers, you can't beat ours.
You will hear me shout: "I'm here, girls!"
Nice French beans, curly little greens,
And your spuds all nice and brown,
And if you boil 'em half an hour,
They're like a bowl of flour,
And me rhubarb is the best in all the town.

Here are the full lyrics as found on Round the Horn Vol 10 C. 1h39.45min


I'M OUT WITH ME BARROW ON THE STREETS

You may think me job is a dull one
I'm a Greengrocer what is on wheels
But I wouldn't swap with a bloke in the shop
What I serve makes much better meals.
I've learned quite a lot as I push round the street
A-selling the old fashioned way
They tell me they'd miss me if they didn't see me
Coming around every day.

I'm out with me barrow on the streets all day
Hawking me greens about.
Nice cauliflowers
You can't beat ours
You can hear me shout "I'm here girls"
Nice French beans
Curly little greens
And me spuds all nice and brown
And if you boil 'em half an hour
They're like a bowl of flour
And me rhubarb is the best in all the town!

I don't sell no rubbish on me barrow
And I don't serve it in no fancy pack
But they takes what they wants
And they pays when they can
And I don't 'ave 'em bring nothing back.
I know all me customers, their trouble and strife
I know all their 'opes and their fears
I ain't missed a day of me round all me life
I've served 'em for thirty-five years

How Long?
Thirty-Five Years!

I'm out with me barrow on the streets all day
Hawing me greens about.
Nice cauliflowers
You can't beat ours
You can hear me shout "I'm 'ere girls"
Nice french beans
Curly little greens
And me spuds all nice and brown
And if you boil 'em half an hour
They're like a bowl of flour
And me rhubarb is...
Me rhubarb is...
Me rhubarb is the best... in... all... the... town!

One verse of this song appeared in the 1942 film "I was a Fireman" sung by the character Johnny Daniels whilst driving to a fire during the Blitz.
