Harry Champion, that famous cockney comedian, delights us with more of
his songs. His final (and complete) version of Any Old Iron
starts the proceedings. His topics include many tales about trousers -
darning them, losing them, and keeping your wife out of the pockets.
Difficulties with a coconut also feature.
To complete the entertainment, Harry visits a
marriage agency in Any Old Thing will do whilst in My
Wife's Sister's Pussy Cat the cat rapidly loses his nine
lives. Great delivery at breakneck speed.
