Death and GloryEdit

for Nezukou and his family

When Margoletta refused at Pete's command
To move from out the coot's domain
To move to move to move from out the coot's domain,
This noisy charter boat soon parted from the land
And gaudy hullabaloos soon heard this refrain:

Chorus:

Death and Glory! Wherever she maurauds
Coots for ever and ever rule the Broads!
Death and Glory! Wherever she maurauds
Coots for ever and ever rule the Broads!
With turbans, patches on the eyes, they play the pirate lark,
You can't expect them to be bird protecting all the time
You can't expect them to be bird protecting all the time.
But when it comes to salvage, they beat any Yarmouth shark
And rescued the Margoletta from Breydon's slime

(chorus)

This old black boat ain't the fastest on the Bure;
Unless Joe has got an easterly in his pockut
Unless unless unless Joe has got an easterly in his pockut.
With sail and two engines, each hauling on an oar
This old boat, she fare to go like a blooming rockut!

(chorus)

The Bird Protection Society nests shall guard:
All George Owdon's attempts to bring them down
All George Owdon's attempts to bring them down
Will but arouse the team of Scotland Yard
To work his woe and their renown.

(chorus)

In Jonnatt's cruiser the Pirates escaped:
Who could resist the Bonnka's tempting call?
Who could, who could, resist the Bonnka's tempting call?
Then rescured the Houseboat from the narrowest of scrapes:
"Gee whizz! Maybe salvage ain't so bad after all!"

(chorus)

The Salvage Company can still be found,
So happy to do boat repairs
So happy happy happy to do boat repairs
Blessed land of Norfolk! Where matchless birds abound
And manly hearts to guard nesting pairs!

(chorus)

(Tokyo, 1997)
