Okay, here's a link to "Land of Hope and Glory". I do of course know the
tune, though only the chorus, as "Pomp and Circumstance". The ferret song
methinks sits better on the verse.

And here's a link to "Someone's in the Kitchen with Dinah", #6 on the list:

And here are the lyrics again, if you don't know them by heart yet:

>>> I had a bottle of ferrets,
>>> Which was otherwise filled with gin,
>>> I had a bottle of ferrets
>>> And the ferrets wuz livin' in sin.
>>> Every ferret was male*,
>>> Every ferret was tail,
>>> Nine ferrets in a bottle,
>>> And they wuz livin' in sin.
>>> (Alternate version: every ferret fe-male, every ferret be tail, if
>>> you like)
