Summer Caving

September 1, 2013

We are proud to announce that the following poem was voted the winner in this competition.http://charioteers.org/2013/08/31/and-the-winner-is/

There was some debate over whether the words scanned correctly. I put it to the judge that versatile singers would be able to cram the excess language into the line. It’s not hard. This thing about not being able to put square pegs in round holes is nonsense. Brute force wins the day every time.

Grease was the word then, and the Neutron Bomb, while being older than we imagined, did it for us.

Summer Caving

Summer caving, had us a whack
Summer caving, me, Debbie and Jack Black
We got fed up with the beach
So we went somewhere out of reach
Summer caving, in the depths
To, uh oh, those summer caves

Well-a, well-a, well-a, uh!
Tell me more, tell me more
Did you get very far?
Tell me more, tell me more
How good is the acoustics for a guitar?

Ship-a-ba, ship-a- ba, ship-a-ba-baaaaaa

We were in floods, we got crabs
We crawled through holes, hurting our a-a-abs
We battled through Guano and ducked stalactites
Debbie laddered her tights on the stalagmites
Summer cave, oh what a rave
But, uh oh, those summer caves

Well-a, well-a, well-a, uh!
Tell me more, tell me more
Was it exciting to explore
Tell me more, tell me more
Cause it sounds like a bore

doobie-doobie-do do,do do,do do,do
Scooby-doobie doooooooo

It got cold, it ends in dejection
Jack got a cave dust infection
We swore we’d never go back
He is now called One-eyed Jack Black
Summer caves seem like a dream
But, oh, those summer caves
