The Lyrics

Guess what I was doing this weekend - this one is a true story. I've written it as "Patayo" for anyone who doesn't know the original song, it's always sung "Tokayo".

Quick note for our friends on the other side of the pond is that a "pony" is slang for 100
Working in the morning sun
Faces sweating every one
That's right, I have a weekender's mission
Oh why did I have to start

Re-laying the patayo, oh why, oh please?
Re-laying the patayo - it's 94 degrees...

Spending a pony or more
Buying the wrong kind of hard core
Yeah, that's more than two tons of sand
Oh, now I'm going grey

Re-laying the patayo, I think it's insane
Re-laying the patayo - Time to pray for rai-ain

But I'm at home and I... I just need a rest

And now I've worn through my gardening gloves
And the cement has made my hands all rough..

Soon I shall work out how much left to do
There's way too much work for a day (or two)

Now it looks like it'll rain
Get that plastic sheet again
If it rains, I think I'll expire
But now it's... dry

Re-laying the patayo, it's way too big
Re-laying the patayo, I'm sweating like a pi-ig

Re-laying the patayo, is not much fun
Re-laying the patayo, now it is just half done...

Re-laying the patayo
(repeat till totally and utterly fu.. er, tired out)

Clever idea. (The parody, not the patio). :-)
