The RA was not popular ...

... but when has that worried him?

Not really leaving home, Subby

Pecker tells of hogsheads of real fire

Ringer welcomed the circle with:
We're Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
We hope you will enjoy the run
We're Sgt. Pepper's Wet and Lonely Hearts Club Band
On on and have some evening fun

Capt F looked at the hash, he knew it was good and sang:
Lend me your ears and I'll sing you a song
And I'll try not to sing out of key
Oh I get by with a little help from my friends
Mm I get high with a little help from my friends
Mm gonna run with a little help from my friends

Depth Charge thought of naming his daughter as he mused:
Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes

Then Rapid stepped forward to regret the weather in song:
Me used to be angry young man
Me hiding me head from the sun
You made me RA, it's raining again
I'm doing the best that I can
But you must admit it's getting better (better)

Edwina was a bit worried about the convertible's roof:
I'm fixing a hole where the rain gets in
And stops my mind from wandering
Where it will go

As she arrives Subby is heard singing:
Leaving the note that she hoped would say more
She goes downstairs to the kitchen clutching her handkerchief
Quietly turning the backdoor key
Stepping outside she is .. late

On the trail Pecker and Tia went for it:
Over men and horses hoops and garters
Lastly through a hogshead of real fire!
In this way Pecker and Tia challenge the world!

Clap Trap snuck off early but left us with:
Try to realise it's all within yourself
No one else can make you change
And to see you're really only very small
And life flows on within you and without me

It was The Count's Anniversary and he wondered:
When I get older losing my hair
Many years from now
Will you still be sending me a valentine
Most important, bottle of wine?

But Lady P remembered when they met:
Got the bill and Roadkill paid it
Took him home I nearly made it
Sitting on the sofa with a sister or two

Blow Felt was there to greet us with:
Go to a run you hope she goes
I've got nothing to say but where's yer cash
Good morning, good morning, good
Good morning, good morning, good

Atomic Titten thought it time to wind up with:
We're Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band
We hope you have enjoyed the run
Sgt. Pepper's Wet and Lonely Hearts Club Band
We're sorry but the circle's done

But Double Entry still had time to chortle:
Ah I read the news today, oh boy
Four hundred runs from Blunham, Bedfordshire
And though the runs were rather slow
I had to Count them all
Now they know how many runs it takes to fill the Albert Hall

I'd love to turn you on

Must have been some wacky stuff in that IPA Reserve
On On to Polluxhill
Count and Lady P
