Track Name: Dudley and his Magic Pants
At the Corner Pin pub in Stubbins
Near the village of Ramsbottom
A ceremony's held
In memory of times forgotten

Sitting on a plinth
There sits a Yorkshire Pud
And it must be dislodges
By throwing another pudding made of blood

Many men had tried and failed
But no-one stood a chance
And then a man called Dudley Red stepped up
And he was wearing magic pants, oh

Dudley! (Dudley!) Dudley! (Dudley!)
Dudley and his magic pants
Dudley! (Dudley!) Dudley! (Dudley!)
The other pudding throwers do not stand a chance

Other black pudding throwers
Were dressed up to the hilt
There was a man in a bus conductor's cap
And another in a blood-stained kilt

There was a man in frog-emblazoned boxer shorts
That he had borrowed from a friend
But none of them could hit that Yorkshire pud
And it was driving them round the bend, oh

Dudley! (Dudley!) Dudley! (Dudley!)
Dudley and his magic pants
Dudley! (Dudley!) Dudley! (Dudley!)
The winner's been determined in advance

Dudley aimed his black pudding
In his eyes a valiant glimmer
He knocked the Yorkshire pud right off that plinth
And he was declared the winner!

He looked down to pat himself on the pants
But when he saw them he shouted "gosh!
This is a different pair of pants,
The magic ones must be in the wash!"

Oh you don't need magic, Dudley
You don't need technology or wealth
Yes you can achieve anything you want
If you believe in yourself, oh

Dudley! (Dudley!) Dudley! (Dudley!)
Take your pants off and throw them away
Dudley! (Dudley!) Dudley! (Dudley!)
Run around without your pants on today

Take your pants off etc

Dudley! (Dudley!) Dudley! (Dudley!)
Dudley and his magic pants
Dudley! (Dudley!) Dudley! (Dudley!)
Dudley and his magic pants
Oh Dudley!
Track Name: Bad Joke
Why did I cross the road?
There was nothing on the other side.
Why must every hand that I shake explode?
And every face be custard-pied?

It's just a bad joke
Just a bad joke

So why such a long face?
I'm sure you've heard how this one goes:
I sent a dozen roses to my ex's place
But she hasn't got a nose

I feel like I've been set-up, just to be punched down
And since I walked into that bar, with the rabbi and that priest, I've felt like such a clown.

So take my life, no seriously,
Just take it
Take my life, no seriously just take it

Who moved the manhole cover?
No one said my laces were undone.
How many women does it take to screw me over?
Just the one.

I'll always be the straight man
Never be the other half
I'll never have a mother-in-law
And there'll be no-one there to laugh

So take my life, no seriously,
Just take it
Take my life, no seriously just take it

Ha ha ha haha ha ha ha haha ha ha ha haha
Ha ha ha haha ha ha ha haha ha ha ha haha
