The Lyrics

What If... Fred had been a manager at British Nuclear Fuels? This was written just after there had been a break-in and one of the fuel arms was damaged.
Shite said Fred
Look at all the gauges
They've been red for ages
Don't know what to do
Sometime later
Falsified the data
Hoped it would go nowhere
And so we sent out a press release and

Shite said Fred
Here's the situation
Lots of radiation
In the Irish Sea
But we backed each other up
Organized a cover up
Hoped it would go nowhere
And so we sent out a press release but

Thought we'd hushed it up
But the Japanese were told of it
And how the French got hold of it
But the worst news of the week
Was a radiation leak


Shite said Fred
Now look what's occuring
Had a saboteur in
And he's broke an arm
Not his own Fred
Don't be such a bonehead
One that moves the fuel rods
And so
Fred said let's send out another press release
And I said

Just took a trip down memory lane. You did a good job rearranging the lyrics. Worked a treat.
