A Dramatic Dialogue
|Champion||Today we have the bad news.
Today we have the sad news.
Today we have the dreaded news.
I fear to tell youse, for am I so sick:
But Sir Winston Cuckoo is dead -
... dead with holes in him!
|Champion||With all mine five ribs do I grieve!
So weep ye for old Winston
Whose dark days shone in 18 ninety 7
For ... all I see now is holes, in him
And maggots up his widely-sniffing nose.
|Chorus||Poor Winston Poor old Winston|
|Champion||We acknowledged him (sob)
---Winny Apple Less---
And now to sing his funeral song
|Chorus||"Little Winnie's dead
So shove him in the coffin
For you dont get the chance
Of a funeral often."
|Chorus and Champion together||"Little Winnie's dead
So hurry up and bury him
Bear him off to Heaven
To be eaten by the seraphim."
|Chorus|| "Catch a Winston £@%=£@ ⅞ $$
Wash him in some +&=?⅞ $
Hang him on a line to dry."
hath the death of Winston.
O Winnie was our big fat king.
Now he is dead.
|Champion||When young, I used to play London Buses with him. I would be the driver, he the conductor. O what sad, sad, sad memories!
Winnie where are you?
Winnie, where is the lighthouse of your cigarette end?
|Champion||Sēe mēe wēep, Winestone!|
