For those unfamiliar with the duo, let Wikipedia enlighten you: "Flanders and Swann were a British comedy duo. Lyricist, actor, and singer Michael Flanders (1922-1975) and composer and pianist Donald Swann (1923-1994) collaborated in writing and performing comic songs. They first worked together at a school revue in 1939 and eventually wrote more than a hundred comic songs together.1
Between 1956 and 1967, Flanders and Swann performed some of their songs, interspersed with comic monologues, in their long-running two-man revues At the Drop of a Hat and At the Drop of Another Hat, which they toured in Britain and abroad. Both revues were recorded in concert, and the duo also made several studio recordings." As the late Sir Ken Dodd might have said, "Come and give your chuckle muscles a workout!"
