The Lyrics

Ham Radio version
I knew a man Boat Anchors
And he'd call for you
With worn out tubes

With matted hair and
Sweaty hat and baggy shorts
He'd call the old CQ

He said QSY,
But he never came down

Mister Boat Anchors,
Mister Boat Anchors,

I met him in a Rad Shack
While collecting parts,
I was running out.

He looked at me to be
A geezer age,
As he stood right out.

He mocked the staff,
Mocked the staff,
He laughed, snapped his Credit Card in half.

Mister Boat Anchors,
Mister Boat Anchors,

He told me of the time he spent
At ham swap meets
Throughout the South

He spoke with tears
Of fifteen years
How his rig and he
Trundled about

His rig up and died
Up and died,
After 20 years it just receives

Mister Boat Anchors,
Mister Boat Anchors,

He said, "I QSO every
Chance I get on Echolink,
And IRLP"...

"But most the time I clean behind
These grimy parts,
You see, it stinks a bit"

He shook his head
Lord he shook his head
And he went QRT

Mister Boat Anchors,
Mister Boat Anchors,

This is original and refreshing. Good job. You really Hammed this one up, and that's good.
