Opening Chorus Of Villagers—Act I., Scene 1.
"Chuck the Cabbage."
Chuck the cabbage: toss the turnip: sling the sportive spud in glee
At the rat traps of them bounders, as have prigged our property
And have pinched our goods and chattels;
And our spoons and babies' rattles:
Even boned our loose spondulix—
Oh, gol darn 'em, and their fool tricks—
We will teach the blighters manners, as have sneaked our L.S.D.
A tomato, soft and squashy, is the finest antidote
For all blokes, wot pinches nose rags—Sunday papers kindly note—
So come on shake a leg: lets do it;
Heave a chunk of half cooked suet;
Or bananas, or pigs' trotters;
Shake the tar out of the rotters.
Biff your eggs completely rotten. Let 'em bust against their throat.
