There Once was a girls' school at Penwortham
And Mr & Mrs Ransborrom thought
That young Albert should go there an all
===
When asked about teachers and subjects he remarked that they were OK
And the last line was about sports ....
===
And Albert remarked "But the showers were cowd."

Does anyone have the words to Albert Ramsbottom when he got sent to a girls school in Penwortham. When asked how he liked it he said something like it was OK, but after a sports event he found that "the showers were cold."

Never mind about Albert Ramsbottom, or Sam Small for that matter; Who knows the words of the monologue about a butler? viz:

"It was ver 'ard wok in the pantry,
Polishing silver all day.
They made me polish, an' polish 'an polish
Till I rubbed 'L.M.S.' clean away!"

I guess the answer to my own question above is that it doesn't. When I made the link it had the URL down twice. I pasted it into an e-mail that I sent myself and the link came up twice, and both of them worked. But it straightened itself out in the message...oh me of little faith!

Part of the site is here
http://www.btinternet.com/~p.wilkinson2000/Albert_and_the_Lion.htm
(Why does the linkmaker make two links?)

Unfortunately only the first six or seven monologues come up if you click on them.

I can't open any of Paul's monologues - clicking on his blue clickies only gives me the 'page cannot be opened message' and refers me to the now-defunct www.monologues site. Wonder if this is a problem with my broadband that I've recently installed. Shame really, as I'm off to a folk club tonight I fancied trying one of the new monologues...

I have PMed Paul asking about his site. It seems as though www.monologues.co.uk has now been aquired by "The Hosting Company for one of it's clients".

I wonder if Max would be interested in hosting it - in the same way that he provided Dick with a home for the DT when the owners of it's previous home got worried about copyright considerations.

Tom Gilfellon has recorded it on The Middle of the Tune, and I am sure it was discussed here quite recently. It is of recent origin, as it refers to the moon landing in 1969. Uncle Alberts last heroic farewell.. or something like that

I've got your site bookmarked, Paul, and really enjoy it (I never knew that Bernard Wrigley had written sequals to "Knocking Nelly"...)

Do you have the words to "There's a stain on the floor of the barroom..."? Since I've only ever heard Lou Killen do this tragic tale of a darts contest and don't know the title or author, it might be on your site under its real name...

Subject: 'ALBERT RAMSBOTTOM' monologues...
From: Paul

Most people will be familiar with the 'Albert Ramsbottom' monologues, popularised by Marriott Edgar and Stanley Holloway from the 30's to the 70's. It appears that people are still writing the occasional 'Albert' monologue which I would very much like to add to my growing collection.
I'm searching, in particular, for 'Albert And The Outside Privy' and 'Albert And The Vampire'... plus any others that follow the original 'Marriott Edgar' style.
Can anyone help?...

The following are available at my site...

Marriott Edgar :
The Lion And Albert
Albert And His Savings
Albert And The 'Eadsman
Albert's Return
The Jubilee Sov'reign
Recumbent Posture
The Runcorn Ferry

Stanley Holloway :
Albert Evacuated

Albert's Reunion

And the tradition continues with :
Son Of Albert (Captures the style very well!)
Tail End Albert Albert as a Tail Gunner)
Albert And The Vindaloo (Very Funny!)
Albert At Sellafield
Albert And The Monkey (A 'Discword' version)
Albert And The Computer
Albert And The Whorehouse (Not uploaded because of younger visitors)
