Urban Freeflow - Tea running (a funny Parkour commercial)

RIGHT SAID FRED (Performed by Bernard Cribbins)

Right said Fred, both of us together, one each end and steady as we go
Tried to to shift it, couldn't even lift it, we was getting nowhere
And so, we, had a cup of tea
Right said Fred, give a shout to Charlie, up comes Charlie from the floor below
After straining, heaving and complaining, we was getting nowhere
And so, we, had a cup of tea
Charlie had a think and he thought we ought to take off all the handles
And the things that held the candles - but it did no good (well I never thought it would!)
Right said Fred, have to take the feet off, to get them feet off wouldn't take a mo...
Took its feet off, even took the seat off, should have got us somewhere, but no!
So Fred said let's have another cup of tea, and we said "right-oh!"

The song is about 3 piano movers trying to move a piano!
heave = raise, lift
strain = pull
mo = moment
right-oh! = an expression of cheerful agreement
