The Lyrics

Meriadoc update: Merry is now safely ensconced back in her native Ohio. No net access for the immediate future. In the meantime, here's the only one we prepared earlier. The song title may lead you to think it's about something else...! A low-bitrate mp3 of the song can be found here.
My doom I have been told, but then
I’d rather have been elsewhere when
They binded me quite hard
Well, I was hung
And then I swung

We clothes in worst launderette did spin
Dryer’s broke so home I go then
And on rope strung in yard
There I was hung

When I was hung, caused an ‘unconversance’
Dialtones sounder, yeah
When I was hung
Up, I was hung

A group of one less than thirteen
I sat down and endlessly convened
But I got quite deadlocked, then I was hung
Well, I was hung

Well I oft hung, I’m a chiroptera
Slumber caveful
Nappin’ upsider, yeah
When I am hung
At night I’m hung

My mates, was so much longer than
Had to heave my swelling gland
For I was named John Holmes, and man!...
Well, I was hung
Well, I was hung
Well, I was hung
Well, I was hung

I would have commented earlier but my computer got hung. Fine write you two. You have nearly exhausted the use of the word "hung".

Thanks all. Guy, we identified computers (and paintings) as things that also got hung. But we ran out of verses (I blame Eric Burdon)!
