Does any one recall Jack Lee from the Fisherman folk club Hollingworth England reciting the "Phantom Crapper"? I remember the early 70's visiting the lakeside club which Jack and Mavis ran so well. The venue was great for a brisk walk around the lake shore to sober up before you got in the Ford-pop to drive home!! The monologue was fair side splitting; Jack would time it to perfection, building up the scene with rich innuendo. Monologue request anyone?.

Benny Hill did a routine about "The Phantom Raspberry Blower of Old London Town" which was about a Phantom Farter... :-)

Just came across this site ......Jack and Mavis Lee are still running a Country Music club called the Hobo's Retreat at The Reform Club,Heywood, every Thursday. At 80+years Jack still does 'a spot' of his monologues ie. The Old Dun Cow,Julius Ceasar,The Farting Contest and of course the one you are talking about is The Phantom of Balderstone Mill. I hope this now sheds some light on the whereabouts of the great couple....and of course Jack is still performing !!!!!!

Jack Lee's CD "Live at the Servite Folk Club" includes a recitation of THE PHANTOM OF BALDERSTONE MILL. There's a 30-second sample on this page but his accent (or should I call it a dialect?) combined with the poor sound quality make it very difficult for me to understand.

I went once to the Fishermans Folk club in the early 70's and heard (it must have been) Jack Lee singing a song about a lighthouse keeper or sailor who had the choice of sleeping with two mermaid sisters.
Two of the lines went;
"The top half it was ugly fish
But the bottom half was girl!"

Anyone got any idea of the lyrics and tune?

No that was The Two Ronnies.

Who shat in the lodger's clog?

Not I said the vicar,
mine's browner and thicker.
