I just happened upon this web page, and recalled that someone had been enquiring about a song from Bagpuss. There is a CD available of music from Bagpuss. For info click here!
I hope that you spot the revived thread and can make use of the link!
Quack!
GtD.

The Bony King of Nowhere
The bony king of Nowhere/He sat upon his throne/He didn't much like sitting there/Because his throne was (diddle-dee-dee)/His throne was made of stone/
His throne was made of marble white/Its feet were made of gold/It was a royal throne all right/But oh dear, it was (diddle-dee-dee)/It was extremely cold/
That skinny king of Nowhere/Was feeling very chilly/He said to go on sitting there/Was really very (diddle-dee-dee)/And also very chilly/
He jumped up on the teatable/And said "Please will you find/A seat that's soft and suitable/To warm a king's be-(diddle-dee-dee)/Just see what you can find"/
They fetched him up a hammock/But they couldn't keep it still/They put him on a rocking horse/But rocking made him (diddle-dee-dee)/It made him very ill/
They sat him on a woolsack/But that rubbed up his knees/They rolled him on a feather bed/But that just made him (diddle-dee-dee)/It simply made him sneeze/
That poor old king of Nowhere/Just sat there looking sad/He said "If you could help me/I'd be very very (diddle-dee-dee)/Particularly glad"/
Two mice came up from somewhere/Behind their royal chum/They said "Dear king, here is a thing/To warm the royal (diddle-dee-dee)/And stop you feeling numb"/
The thing, it was a cushion bright/Of silk and gold brocade/So square and soft and small and light/And very neatly (diddle-dee-dee)/Of silk and gold brocade.
Now the happy king of Nowhere/Is smiling on his throne/His smile is rosy/His seat is cosy/Although his throne is stone, is stone/The mice have made it nice, so nice/He is a happy king!

The file I linked to is long gone, though I've seen some recordings on Youtube and Facebook lately.

The singer would presumably have been John Faulkner - who, as it happens, is now a neighbour and good friend of mine!

Thanks, Martin.

I'd never seen a player piano with organ pipes on top before.
