Bio[]

Suitcase on the Train is a musical ballad Benny Hill performs in the opening on October 28, 1970. It was performed on stage without vocal back-up and was used to open the thread of Look #7 quickies that followed.

Lyrics[]

Now, the train pulled out of Houston,
George got aboard all right.
But when he saw the seat he had reserved,
He suddenly went white.
In it was a great big suitcase,
It was battered as can be.
Next to it was a hippie who was humming happily

(As the hippie, Benny scats a bit, removes an imaginary cigarette and waves good-bye)

George said, "Look I'm not unreasonable, intolerant or hard,
"But if you don't remove that suitcase.
"I'm gonna fetch the guard."

(As the hippie, Benny scats a bit, removes an imaginary cigarette and waves good-bye again)

Suit01


"Look, here, I reserved that window seat,
"That window seat is mine.
"If you don't remove that suitcase,
"I'm going to throw it out on the line."

(As the hippie, Benny blows the same tune again through his lips to imitate a trumpet, removes an imaginary cigarette and waves good-bye again.)

So George picked up the suitcase,
And he threw it out on the track
He said, "There you long-haied layabout,
"What do you say to that?"

(As the hippie, Benny scats a bit again before responding.")

"It's not my bloody case."
