""RIP RP"" as written by Judith Abbott, Neil Ferguson, Louise Watts and Allan Whalley....
Goodbye RP Let our words go free
Coo and howl Lay flat your vowels
Ah ay ee Goodbye RP
Tongue uncross your t's
Slang and slur Bah and burr They thy thee
Goodbye RP Teachered tyranny
Speed this end Our ows to bend Who were he wi'?
