The Ups and Downs of a Handyman

Synopsis: A young handyman and his wife (Barry Stokes, Penny Meredith) move to a small village and set up business. There, the handyman encounters numerous strange characters, including a local constable (Chic Murray) more inept than a squadcar full of Keystone Kops; an elderly magistrate (Bob Todd) whose primary passion is spanking young women; a schoolmistress (Sue Lloyd) with a closetful of kinks; and more predatory housewives than the young man can handle.

Cryin' with jealousy

I can make you feel good

Or I can make you feel bad

But there ain't no good in tryin'

Giving back what I've had

The ups and downs of a handyman

Livin' my life the best I can

Up and down all over town

I can make you smile I can make you frown

Oh, don't you know

There's just one way to go

Oh, don't you know

You know you want to go

Wouldn't you like to be me

Look me over and see

Look at all of your faces

Cryin' with jealousy

I can make you feel good

I can make you feel bad

But there ain't no good in tryin'

Giving back what I've had

The ups and downs of a handyman

Livin' my life the best I can

Up and down all over town

I can make you smile I can make you frown

The ups and downs of a handyman

Livin' my life the best I can

Up and down all over town

I can make you smile

I can make you frown

All right, there we go.

the trick and I get

some interesting jobs, eh?

- See ya, don't work too hard,

yet, anyway.

(gasp)

(light romantic music)

- Good morning, madam.

- Good morning, um I wonder if I could

place this card in your window.

- Why, certainly, madam.

Thank you, oh, I see

you're a teacher, then.

A very attractive one,

too, if I may say so.

- Ooh (laughing),

you may, thank you.

- Oxford, Harrow,

lot of experience, then.

Are you a blue?

- Well, I could be, if
