I had a record a long time ago by Kenneth Williams which disapeared somehow. I would like to find some digital recordings of his work as Rambling Sid as I would like to get a small act together, the lyrics would be handy, but it is the asides that go with them that are very entertaining and are a good buildup to the actual song. Can anybody help.

The works of Kenneth Williams are still broadcast from time to time on BBC Radio 7. See IPlayer to listen to recent broadcasts. Round the Horne and whatever any other K W programme was should still be available as CD from BBC Enterprises or whatever they call their commercial arm.

There's a fair bit on YouTube.

As for gettihg an act together...he was very much "of his time" I reckon, and I'm not convinced there'd be much demand. The days when merely saying the words "cordwangler" or "throbbing me nurkers" could reduce an audience to helpless hysterics are (sadly, or perhaps not!) long gone.

Except for a certain generation?

I didn't even understand most of it first time round.

Joe, he was a young cordwangler,
Munging greebles he did go,
And he loved a bogler's daughter
By the name of Chiswick Flo.

Vain she was and like a grusset
Though her gander parts were fine,
But she sneered at his cordwangle
As it hung upon the line.

So he stole a woggler's mooly
For to make a wedding ring,
But the Bow Street Runners caught him
And the judge said "He will swing."

Oh, they hung him by the postern,
Nailed his mooly to the fence
For to warn all young cordwanglers
That it was a grave offence.

There's a moral to this story,
Though your cordwangle be poor,
Keep your hands off other's moolies,
For it is against the law.
