Hawks started out as a songwriter but was not successful, and instead became a comedian and writer. However, it was when he turned to comedy that he achieved a hit with "Stutter Rap (No Sleep Til Bedtime)", reaching No. 4 in the UK Singles Chart, No. 14 in Canada and No. 2 in Australia. Although written by Hawks, it was performed by him along with two others, as Morris Minor and the Majors. In the video for the song, John Deacon (of Queen) makes an appearance, wearing a blue wig and playing guitar. The single also featured the song "Another Boring B-Side", whose chorus simply repeated the line: "Very very very very very very boring".
