"A British Bar"

Parody Written by:

The Lyrics

This is from a complete parody of "The H.M.S. Pinafore". The concept is the whole thing takes place in a bar like "Cheers" And Yes, it took a lot of beer to write it.
TRIO (DICK, RALF, GUTT):

A british bar is a boring hole
That's filled with a bunch of guys
But you can get a beer
If you let one bend your ear
And tell you a pack of lies

His nose gets long as he spouts his verse
His breath is bad and his armpits worse
His voice is loud with a slurring drawl
And his fist be ever ready for a barroom brawl

So should you meet this British bore
A man who has nothing to say
Just act dumb and meek
Till he has to take a leak
Then slip out the alleyway

When he comes back and he finds you've gone
He won't care less, he'll still ramble on
He'll find another to bore to tears
And this he'll do forever and a dozen years

A dozen years, a dozen years......

This would have made no sense if I hadn't seen Picard, Worf and Data singing the original in "Star Trek: Insurrection." Rest in peace, my cybernetic friend.
