Oh no, it must be (among many others):
"Go around the Canterbury ring-road, avoiding earthworks at Avebury"...
"Ox-carts, nose-to-tail from here to the coast"...

"The umpire upon whom the sun never sets..."

"So watch the wall my darling, while the bedstead men go by."

They're such good songs. And observations on life - whether Australian
television, or flying when in a wheelchair (my father has indeed been
through the kitchen entrance on a fork lift - very stately). Or of course:
"120 pounds excess baggage. In the end we had to leave her behind. What was
she called again? La belle dame sans merci - the beautiful woman who never
says thankyou."

I have to stop. Usually I collar people, sit them down and make them listen
to the whole lot. I am creating a race of zombies who cannot here "Come and
GET it," without instantly joining in. Bwahaha.
