I Googled The Two Ronnies, their site has DVD's available. One of them has, The St Botolph's County Dance Team sketch. Could that be The Morris dancer sketch you are wondering of?

Guest Diane;

'tis the one me thinks - there's a few threads as well on the song

BOLD SIR JOHN

Now Bold Sir John was young at heart,
And Bold Sir John was gay;
He strolled the woods, the fields all round,
A-heeding Mother Nature's sounds;
The twittering of the birds all day,
The bumblebees at play.
The Twit! The Twit! The Twit! The twit!
The twittering of the birds all day;
The Bum! The Bum! The Bum! The Bum!
The bumblebees at play.

As Bold Sir John continued on,
A-viewing natures ways;
He asked the Lord, "Come tell me pray,
Why elephants live so long, they say;
Your flies live but a day then they,
Drop dead upon the ground".
Your Flies! Your Flies! Your Flies! Your Flies!
Your flies live but a day then they;
Drop Dead! Drop Dead! Drop Dead! Drop Dead!
Drop dead upon the ground.

As Bold Sir John walked on afar,
He spied a maiden fair;
"I beg you sir don't come too near,
For I've seen many a maiden here;
Get lost amongst the new mown hay,
So doff your hat I pray".
Get lost! Get lost! Get lost! Get lost!
Get lost amongst the new mown hay.
Sod off! Sod off! Sod off! Sod off!
So doff your hat I pray.

When Bold Sir John return'ed home,
They gave him gin to try;
"Don't fill me with strong liquor up,
Nor give me grape nor grain to sup;
Pour cowslips dew into my cup,
A Puritan am I".
Poor Cow! Poor Cow! Poor Cow! Poor Cow!
Pour cowslips dew into my cup.
Up You! Up You! Up You! Up You!
A Puritan am I.

This reminds me of a song which was a multi part pseudo Madrigal (possibly by P. D. Q. Bach - that seems an association, but might be spurious) which when the parts were combined went

Look Up - Her Dress - etc.
