"What A Bringdown" as written by and Peter Edward Baker....
Dainties in a jam-jar parson's colour in the sky.
Water in a fountain doesn't get me very high.
Moby Dick and Albert making out with Captain Bligh.
So you know what you know in your head.
Will you, won't you, do you, don't you know when a head's dead?
What a bringdown!

Winter leader Lou is growin' 'Ampsteads in the North.
Betty B's been wearin' daisies since the twenty-fourth.
Wears a gunner when there's one more coming forth.
And you know what you know in your head.
Will you, won't you, do you, don't you want to go to bed?
What a bringdown!

There's a tea-leaf about in the family,
Full of nothin' their fairy tale.
There's a tea-leaf a-floatin' now for Rosalie,
They'll believe in ding-dong bell.

Take a butchers at the dodginesses of old Bill.
Aristotle's orchestra are living on the pill.
One of them gets very very prickly when he's ill.
And you know what you know in your head.
Will you, won't you, do you, don't you want to make more bread?
What a bringdown!

    General CommentSorry, but the lyric is: Little Leta Lou's been growing hampsteads in the north (she's growing nuggies, what with being a teen and all that). Nettie Bea's been wearing daisies since the twenty-fourth (need no for explanation, we all know what it means when a young lady wears daisies). Where's it gonna end, there's one more coming forth (Ginger's son, who was yet to be born). Thank you for attention to this, and for "Od's sake get it right!
