The Lyrics

To all you lovers of perfect poetic metre and rhythm!
(sing tune) I'd rather be
(talk quickly in Mexican accent) El Condor Wot Passa Overhead than a guy that's underneath and wearing his wedding suit
(sing) Yes I would, if I could, I surely would.

(sing) I'd rather n't be a marrow than a
(talk) 'person wot carves faces into vegetables'
(sing) No I wouldn't, I deaf nittly wouldn't, I surely wouldn't

(sing) Away I'd rather sail away
And be a dot
All in my yacht (talk) or any seaworthy vessel that floats and has a suitable method of propulsion
(sing) A man gets tied up to the ground, (talk) especially if he's one of those blokes in one of those prisoner of war films where he gets staked out in the midday sun without any water…..
(sing) He gives to them the saddest sound, the saddest sound.(gasping sounds)

(sing) I'd rather be a florist,
(talk) or in fact any horticulturist or purveyor of plants with petals and blossom for herbaceous borders or nurseries, vases and hats… (sing) than a flower
Yes I would, if I could, I surely would

(sing) I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet, (talk) except when I'm on a particularly long walking holiday and I've got blisters which might lead to the necessity of painful surgery and even incarceration in hospital while I recover.
(sing) Yes I would, if I could, I surely would.

(sing) Away I'd rather sail away
Like my hair that's here and gone.
A man gets tied up or….
(talk speeding up) sometimes thrown in dungeons, or off a cliff or often you see them being put in remand centres or places of detention like Wan Hunnimo Bay or Colditz (sound fades away) or some other unpleasant place that's not nice at all…..and probably wouldn't be very healthy, especially etc etc.
