O Gina, o Vikram, Oh Norris and Gail
Oh Audrey and Ashley and Vera
Our Peter, Our Rita Our Toyah and Roy
Only room for one Les around here

And that's Les Battersby not much for flattery
Sometimes a scoundrel's just misunderstood
But not Les Battersby, mad as a Hatter
Les is a scoundrel for good

the ballad of les battersbyWell his mate's name was Dennis And his wife's name was Janice
Till Dennis his pennis in Janice he placed
And so Les tried to end it but he ended his friend instead
Dennis he drove himself out of the race

Because of Les Battersby drunk as a rat was he
That fateful night and so many more
Give us more Les Battersby mad as a hatter
Les is a bounder for good

Oh Duckworth Oh Baldwin Oh Peacock and Platt
Oh Allahan Elliot and Barlow
Up Chippy, down Rovers, in Cafe or flat
He's the man for our time and tomorrow

Give us Les Battersby that's what this country needs
Handsomest man in all Weatherfield
Give us more Les Battersby, mad as a Hatter
Les is a scoundrel for good

Give us Les Battersby more of Les that's what we need
He's the handsomest man in all Weatherfield
Give us more Les Battersby, practically royalty
Les is a scoundrel for good
