Wonder if this will reach the 1000 replies that Webcraft received for his farewell?

Guys, I wish I could have made it. Good luck.

TCM, para,LJS and Paddy went to sea
In a beautiful pea green boat,
They took some honey, and plenty of money,
Wrapped up in a five pound note.
TCM looked up to the stars above,
And sang to a small guitar,
'O lovely Para! O Para my love,
What a beautiful Para you are,
You are,
You are!
What a beautiful Para you are!'




Paddy said to TCM, 'You ignorant knave!
How alarmingly sweet you howl!
O let us have dinner! too long we have hungered:
But what shall we do for a meal?'
They sailed away, for a year and a day,
To the land where the Pong-tree grows
And there in a wood a Piggy-wig stood
With a bung stuffed up his nose,
His nose,
His nose,
With a bung stuffed up his nose.




'Dear pig, are you willing to sell for one shilling
Your bung?' Said the Piggy, 'I will.'
So they took it away, and were fed next day
By the Turkey owning the handle of LJS.
They dined on pork, and Bentosses Fray,
Which they ate with a runcible spoon;
And hand in hand, on the edge of the sand,
They danced by the light of the moon,
The moon,
The moon,
They danced by the light of the moon.


Fair winds!

Ah, I recognise the source of that...

About a boat I’ll sing a song,
Sing rickety-tickety-tin
About a boat I’ll sing a song,
It had two hulls and was fairly long,
With sails and engines and full air-con…
And plenty of pies in a tin, a tin,
And plenty of pies in a tin.

The skipper was a Yorkshireman
Sing rickety-tickety-tin
The skipper was a Yorkshireman
He didn’t believe in a passage plan
“The longer the voyage, the better the tan”
He announced with a hideous grin, a grin
He announced with a hideous grin.

One of the crew was named ljs
Sing rickety-tickety-tin
One of the crew was named ljs
His manners were terrible, I confess
He left the galley in quite a mess….
‘Cos he’d drunk several bottles of gin, of gin
‘Cos he’d drunk several bottles of gin.

Another had worked in the pensions trade
Sing rickety-tickety-tin
Another had worked in the pensions trade
And some predictions he had made
Of how the crew would be dismayed
When they sailed from Saint Martin, Martin
When they sailed from Saint Martin.

The last aboard was a Paddywack
Sing rickety-tickety-tin
The last aboard was a Paddywack
Of sailing he had got the knack
By hitting pontoons with an awful crack
And making a terrible din, a din
And making a terrible din.

This motley crew set sail at last
Sing rickety-tickety-tin
This motley crew set sail at last
By hauling the washing up the mast
But sadly the boat it did not go fast
‘Cos none of the crew were thin, were thin
‘Cos none of the crew were thin.

And so my song to an end must come
Sing rickety-tickety-tin
And so my song to an end must come
And if you think I should have kept mum
Stick yer head up yer whingeing bum…
You should never have let me begin, begin
You should never have let me begin!

I recognise the source of that one, too...

Erm, as far as I'm aware, he's not late, just getting on a bit.

Presumably the last line aided recognition?

[/ QUOTE ] That's really odd. I was convinced that he died a couple of years ago but can't find a reference to his demise anywhere, so I reckon you must be right.

Excellent news!
