Viva Hooky Street
|Mr John Sullivan, ace comedy writer and author of Only Fools and Horses – possibly the funniest ever British TV comedy – has sadly died all too young.
He wrote and sang the theme song for OFH.
Here is the end song performed.
Here are the lyrics.
We’ve got some half price cracked ice and miles and miles of carpet tiles, T.V.s, deep freeze and David Bowie L.P.s,
Ball games, gold chains, whatsnames, pictures frames and leather goods, And Trevor Francis track suits from a mush in Shepherds Bush, Bush, bush, bush, bush, bush, bush, bush …
No income tax, no V.A.T., No money back, no guarantee, Black or white, rich or poor, We’ll cut prices at a stroke……
God bless Hooky Street, Viva Hooky Street, Long live Hooky Street, C’est magnifique, Hooky Street, Magnifique, Hooky Street,
Hooky Street (to fade)
The Memories of John Sullivan’s work will never fade for me.
