It went to number one in the UK charts one Christmas - 1968 I think.

The Scaffold were Roger McGough, Liverpool poet; John Gorman, who went on to appear on Saturday morning Kids TV (TISWAS?); and Mike McGear, whose claim to fame was being Paul McCartney's kid brother.

Here's an ABC of the tune as I remember it.
