Full speed ahead, Mr Cohen!

Up, up, up your premium
Up, up, up your premium (Scribble away!)
Up, up, up your premium (And balance the books)
Up, up, up your premium (Scribble away!)
Up, up, up your premium (But balance the books)
Up, up, up

It's fun to charter an accountant
And sail the wide accountancy,
To find, explore the funds offshore
And skirt the shoals of bankruptcy!

It can be manly in insurance
We'll up your premium semi-annually
It's all tax deductible
We're fairly incorruptible
We're sailing on the wide accountancy!

Oh, this is fun, Mr Cohen, fetch me another exotic cheroot

Up, up, up your premium
Up, up, up your premium (Scribble away!)
Up, up, up your premium (And balance the books)
Up, up, up your premium (Scribble away!)
Up, up, up your premium (But balance the books)

To port! Bring her port to sherry!
And the medium guys sherry to port!
Balance the books
Bring me another small cheroot, Mr Cohen

    General CommentMy best female friend got a degree in accounting, and hated it- she likened it to the lion tamer sketch.
    She became a programmer, and loves her job more than accounting.

    I'm proud of her.
