The Monkees – “Randy Scouse Git” – ORIGINAL VIDEO – ’67

…not mentioned ANYWHERE in the song, this was the epithet used to describe the character played by Tony Booth – later, the father of British Prime Minister Tony Blair’s wife – in the British TV series, “Till Death Us Do Part” (later done in America as “All In The Family”). Randy means aroused – a Scouse is a Liverpudlian (person from Liverpool) and Git is short for illegitimate. And so the title was CHANGED in Britain to “Alternate Title” – ironic, given only British people would UNDERSTAND the expression!
