"In The First Place"

The Remo Four! George Harrison.

Day begins to crumble.

Can't believe my eyes.

Falling down and down and down.

It comes as no surprise.

I begin to stumble.

Losing my control.

Feeling like a blind man.

Who is searching for his soul.

Never be the same.

Never be the same again.

Will it ever be the same again.

As it was in the first place.

I've been feeling humble.

Since you went away.

Now I feel there's nothing left.

That's right for me to say.

Never be the same.

Never be the same again.

Will it ever be the same again.

As it was in the first place.

Never be the same.

Never be the same again...


Have a nice weekend, Mr. Collins.

Same to you, my dear Perkins.

Goodnight, Mr. Collins.

Have a nice weekend.

Have a nice weekend,

Mrs. Charmer.

"Check everything into order.

Return subject of experiment

to morgue.

Cheese to mice."



"Electricity off."

Goodnight. Have a nice weekend.

Yes, I know it is. But it's not

Do you hear that sound?



Static electricity.

The air is full of it. Look.

Oh, I see.

- But I still think it isn't enough.

- Oh, it's more than enough.

I'm telling you straight,

Mr. Collins, it ain't.


Oh, Mr. Collins!

- Well, I must do it once a month, sir.

But it's only been

three weeks and a half.

No, dear, four.

Four weeks, Mr. Collins.

Oh, that's not right, Mrs. Peurofoy.

I'm behind my work.

No more hovering today,

Mrs. Peurofoy, please. Now go now.

But I've only done

the hour and a half.

That's all right. I'll pay you

Oh, dear!

I don't think I got any change...

Oh, that's all right.

Take the lot. And just go.

Thank you very much, sir.

Sorry about the change.

By the way, is your daughter

Oh... Well, we shall all be married

sooner or later, eh, Mrs. Peurofoy?

Says you.
