FATHER: My son, you will follow in my footsteps. One day, lad, all this will be yours ... All that ... (indicates the vista from the window) all that you can see, stretched out over the hills and valleys ... the mighty rivers of British Columbia! The Fir! The Larch! The Redwood! The mighty Scots Pine! As far as the eye can see and beyond ... that'll be your forest, lad.
PRINCE: But, Mother ...
FATHER: Father, lad.
PRINCE: But, Father, I don't really want any to be a lumberjack. I'd rather ... just ... sing ...
enter lumberjack chorus
CHORUS: He's a lumberjack and he's OK, he sleeps all night and he works all day.
PRINCE: I'm not a lumberjack. I'm not a lumberjack.
HEAD of CHORUS: But you are dressed as one.
PRINCE He dressed me up like this.
FATHER: I didn't, I didn't!
PRINCE: This isn't my axe, It is a false one.
HoC: Well?
FATHER ... Well, I did do the axe.
HoC: The axe?
FATHER: And the checked shirt. But he is a lumberjack.
CHORUS: Burn the lumberjack! Burn him!
prince swoons
FATHER: My son!
HoC: What's wrong with him?
FATHER: I'll tell you what's wrong with him. 'E's dead, that's what's wrong with him!
HoC: No, no, 'e's uh,...he's resting.
HoC kicks prince
HoC: There, he moved!
FATHER: No, he didn't, that was you kicking him!
HoC: I never!!
FATHER: Yes, you did!
HoC: I never, never did anything...
Enter man with cart
MAN WITH CART: Bring out your dead!
LESSOR CHORUS MAN: Here's one!
MwC: Ninepence.
FATHER: He's not dead!
MwC: What?
PRINCE: seeing a way out of life as a lumberjack Nothing... There's your ninepence.
FATHER: He's not dead!
MwC: 'Ere. He says you're not dead.
PRINCE: Yes I am.
FATHER: He's not!
MwC: You're not.
PRINCE: Look, I will be eventually. Guarenteed 100% mortality rate.
MwC: I can't take you like this. It's against regulations.
LCM: Just get on with it!
MwC: Oh, OK
MwC very swiftly brings up a club and hits the PRINCE, drags him into the cart and exits

(and like all monty python things, the ending is weak...)

Yay!

You could go from the against regulations bit to the madness of the forms from the cooker sketch. Pink form from Reading.

You know I did the lumberjack thing at one of the choir dinners at Pembroke? We were supposed to provide some 'entertainment' so there was a group of us that pretended to be about to sing Somewhere Over the Rainbow quite badly and then I came out as being a lumberjack.

I did the same thing at Unite FoR Peace - a peace group Elly and I go to sometimes. They thought I was having a breakdown or something - oops. Perhaps I should do the lumberjack thing at work...

It's fun to charter an accountant, and sail the wide accountancy...

The lumberjack song ended up (slightly edited) in my version of Little Red Riding Hood too :-)

They thought I was having a breakdown or something - oops
