Testo harold the barrel - genesis

News:

A well-known Bognor restaurant-owner disappeared early this morning

Last seen in a mouse-brown overcoat
suitably camouflaged

They saw him catch the train



Man-in-the-street:

Father of three it's disgusting


Such a horrible thing to do


Harold the Barrel cut off his toes and he served them all for tea

He can't go far


He can't go far


Hasn't got a leg to stand on


He can't go far




Man-on-the-spot:

I'm standing in a doorway on the main square tension is mounting

There's a restless crowd of angry people



Man-on-the-council:

More than we've ever seen - had to tighten up security




Over to the scene at the town hall

The Lord Mayor's ready to speak



Lord Mayor:

Man of suspicion, you can't last long

When the British Public is on your side




British Public:

You can't last long


You can't last long


Said you couldn't trust him, his brother was just the same


You can't last long




Harold:

If I was many miles from here

I'd be sailing in an open boat on the sea

Instead I'm on this window ledge

With the whole world below

Up at the window

Look at the window



Mr. Plod:

We can help you




Plod's Chorus:

We can help you




Mr. Plod:

We're all your friends if you come on down and talk to us son




Harold:

You must be joking

Take a running jump



The crowd was getting stronger and our Harold getting weaker

Forwards
backwards
swaying side to side

Fearing the very worst

They called his mother to the site

Up on the ledge beside him

His mother made a last request



67
Mrs. Barrel:

Come off the ledge - if your father were alive he'd be very, very, very upset


Just can't jump, you just can't jump


Your shirt's all dirty and there's a man here from the BBC


You just can't jump




Mr. Plod:

We can help you




Plod's Chorus:

We can help you




Mr. Plod:

We're all your friends if you come on down and talk to us Harry




Harold:

You must be joking

Take a running jump
