The Lyrics

A reality check.
In the town where I was born
is a naval base next to sea
One of ships that you might know
has quite high visibility -

While the normal warships are
all painted in camouflage
Submarine that particular
has outré, so to say, visage -

"We all live in a yellow submarine
we want to paint her grey - we hate this colour scheme
We all live in a yellow submarine
her colour makes us sick - why cannot she be green?"

When her crew is all aboard
Colour makes them puke - it's abhorred
But happy is the enemy
She's a target they sure can see -

"We all live in a yellow submarine
we want to paint her grey - we hate this colour scheme
We all live in a yellow submarine
her colour makes us sick - why cannot she be green?"

So they go beneath the waves
in their yellow-painted sub, those braves
On heavy use is the latrine
in that yellow submarine...

"We all live in a yellow submarine
we want to paint her grey - we hate this colour scheme
We all live in a yellow submarine
her colour makes us sick - why cannot she be green?"

"We all live in a yellow submarine
we want to paint her grey - we hate this colour scheme
We all live in a yellow submarine
her colour makes us sick - why cannot she be green?"

Sweeeet way to use the OS lyrics, Susan! Colour me green ; )

Only thing worse would be to install screen doors.

Cute song-555! You could recycle the OS title as "Finnish War Machine" :)

Fun treatment, especially like the verses. But quite a few extra syllables. Keep 'em coming, Susanna.
Gray or green - or gray-green. How about purple with orange stripes, or just black stripes on the yellow. Or polkadots - where's your psychedelic imagination? The Beatles would be ashamed of you. The enemy can't see you under the waves anyway.

Wow! Thank you all for your votes and comments.

Rob, I'm not good on military parodies - I rather do historical stuff - could you try doing "Finnish War Machine" to this tune?

Susanna - Delightful romp. Even Lennon and McCartney would enjoy it. ;D
