Verse 1.
Semi-Chorus A—
Opah, dreaded bureaucrat,
Semi-Chorus B—
O, Egypt's God, great black sacred cat,

Our offerings receive.
Semi-Chorus A—
Opah, here are strawberries
Whose tints outvie cubists dauberies.

Lord, hear our cry,
Look spry,
Our woes relieve.

Semi-Chorus A—
Oaths have we taken,
Flags we've saluted,
Naught has it booted,
Opah, awaken !
We need new temples,
No more old tin-sheds
Grimy, wind-shaken
Blimy, we'll turn Reds,
True-blue Bob Semples.
