Red Collar Rat


Water Rat 092

a comic singer who was often billed as 'The Prince of the Red Nosed Comedians'. He sang songs about drink and drunks. He would dress in top hat and tails and his lyrics usually parodied the leisured classes. He hiccuped as he sang, claiming that "... it must have been the lobster I've eaten as I've hardly drunk enough to drown a fly!". He is most famous for his number 'If you want to know the time...ask a policeman', which was a satire of the well known fact that if arrested for drunkenness, your watch would probably 'vanish' during your time inside the police station.
