there’s no cannibalism in the royal navy

 

We’re the salty dogs of mo-der-ni-ty,

Robot starfish programmed so expertly

(And we’d like to state most em-phat-ic-ly

There’s no cannibalism in the Royal Navy.)

 

As we sail the blue waters virtually,

There’s a thigh for you and a femur for me

(Just a wee little joke, as you can plainly see;

There’s no cannibalism in the Royal Navy.)

 

We sing along to Yanni and John Tesh

Though we’d prefer to have them in the flesh

(It’s their haunting tunes we find quite tasty;

There’s no cannibalism in the Royal Navy.)

 

We serve the nation and prove our worth,

Map the sewers of Brixton, gnaw on Colin Firth

(He treads the boards in-spi-ray-shun-ly;

There’s no cannibalism in the Royal Navy.)

 

When our duty’s done and the day is through

We have a most proper naval bar-be-cue

(Though we replace officers most fre-quent-ly

There’s no cannibalism in the Royal Navy.)

 

 
(Submitted with my apologies for this Toad prompting, though it’s more of a nod to this with a bit of this as well. Obviously, if I ever attempt to secure a MacArthur Grant, this won’t be included in the application packet.)
