You know you want to sing along

Postby Spooky » 08 Feb 2014, 12:56

Gimme a B,
B!
Gimme a I,
I!
Gimme a G,
G!
Gimme a G,
G!
Gimme a L,
L!
Gimme a E,
E!
Gimme a S,
S!
yaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy ... BIGGLES!

CHORUS:

We are the Biggles-o-maniacs
All of us are wearing our anoraks
No Hun is gonna get us in an aerial attack
'cause Squadron 2-6-6 is covering our backs


We love to read and talk about our action hero
How he uses words like ejaculate and cheero
How he shot down a Rumpler or a Japanese Zero
And how he won the war while Von Stalhein played Nero

<REPEAT CHORUS>

We speak of Algy and Ginger and Bertie
Of how they never seem to get older than thirty
How they rarely meet women and never get flirty
But don't question their persuasions or we'll all get shirty

<REPEAT CHORUS>

We talk of planes and ships and submarines
Of crocs and decapods and all that's in between
Of exotic locations to which we have never been
And some, due to fog, were unable to be seen

<REPEAT CHORUS>

When speaking of Biggles, the baddies get a mention
Putting Eric in the story was WEJ's great invention
For when Von Stalhein's in the story there is plenty of tension
Will he ever defeat Biggles by the time he claims the pension?

<REPEAT CHORUS>

To collect all his books is part of our mission
Some look for readers and some for first editions
The books vary in quality and it is our admission
That some are not so good and you would be better off going fishin'

<REPEAT CHORUS>

Some of us have passions in collating all statistics
How many times a word appears, its really masochistic
Don't ever rubbish Algy or some will go ballistic
You'll cop a wet noodle or a thrashing with a big stick

<REPEAT CHORUS>

We use the internet and we meet in cyberspace
'cause us maniacs come from all over the place
There are representatives from every corner of the hum an race
What a party it will be if we ever meet face to face

<REPEAT CHORUS>

Ahhh....music to my ears! It's been a long time since I played this on the stereo & heard those dulcet tones. :banana:
They've been working together for so long that each seems to know by a sort of telepathy when another is in trouble. One never seems to get them together. Get one & the others come after him. To give the devil his due they make a formidable team.
