Does Any One Remeber


Bruce Forsyth During his period as host on Sunday Night at the London Palladium, one of hes catchphrases was "I'm in charge".

one of the viewers sent him a poem which was maade up of programs of the day

Bronco Layne had a pain so they sent for Wagon Train
Wagon Train was no good so they sent for Robin Hood
Robin Hood lost his bow so they sent for Ivanhoe
Ivanhoe killed a man so they sent for Cheyenne
Cheyenne was having tea so they sent for Laramie
Laramie lost its cargo so they sent for Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo lost its hunter so they sent for Billy Bunter
Billy Bunter was too large so they sent for - I'm in charge

Either the next or within a very few weeks some sent a letter in adding some more lines.

Does any one remember the above or what the next lines are or even character where that were in the next lines?

That was a catch prase for Bruce Forsyth who used to host the show.

Ops forgot to add that I linked from an other thread taking about him.

I'm afraid I don't even though I can see Brucie as Steptoe in mymindseye, you did remind me of this though which at school the following day were were all reciting.
