A Fishy Anthem
« on: 25 April, 2003, 11:20:24 pm »
If it pleases your maj,

"HAIL TO THE TROUT"
(Robustly, on the command "Sing peasants", to the tune of 'Hail to the Chief')

Hail to the trout,
He's the one we all say hail to,
He's just the right size,
Not thin or fat or stout.

Hail to the trout,
He's the one we all say hail to,
He's got a nice smile,
Not a grin or sneer or pout.

Hail to the trout,
He's the one we all say hail to,
He's a real gent,
Not a hooligan, thug or lout.

Hail to the trout,
He's the one we all say hail to,
He's got a nice teapot,
With a lovely, shiny spout.

Hail to the trout,
He's the one you better say hail to,
Otherwise Torturer Mal,
Will make you bawl and scream and shout.

Hooray! Well done, my loyal bard!

(Sadly, I am stout, I do sneer and and, although I do have a lovely teapot, it doesn't have a shiny spout.)

But the sentiment is excellent!

ALL HAIL ME, VERY VERY LOUDLY!

Curses! My web-fu has failed me!
That wasn't nearly loud enough...

I pass the bardly baton back to the Captain Zeep as I fear his Song-Fu is the greater.

Though at this rate we could get the King Trout songbook worked up in no time.

I shall stick to bads jokes and verse for the time being.

Yes and they are getting verse and verse by the minute.

HAIL TO THE TROUT

sire may i humbly suggest,we should have the name of thetune which some pretender used for his own ends.that this is to be sang too.

should it be some boy band anthem,something with  eighties style.heavy rock???LULU???

i am sorry to have to ask but the local authorties will be so embarrassed to have the entire nation
singing in perfect harmony to the wrong tune.to commerate your visit to this humble land.

LONG LIVE THE TROUT.

I AM VERY BUSY!
PJ Maybe and I use the same dictionary, live with it.

NO 2000ad no life!

Yay, a song with me in it. How in the name of foosh did I miss that.

But I have to say, It's more moan and scream and thrash.
