The Halibut Swears To Attack

Majestic as a pikestaff was old Jim, [Apsley]

None of the other fleas was quite like him [Roland]

None of the other fleas knew how to swim [Dassn't Say]

In his wee tuxedo he looked so trim [F]

(The result of months spent at the gym) [Beefy ]

Horrific as an ogre was old Max [F]

He used to stuff the fleas in tiny sacks [Beefy ]

And sell them to the circus across the tracks [Irene Adler]

Where their names were branded on their backs [Ethetran]

And their hairs were tortured off with wax [Dassn't Say]

As caustic as a viper was old Dave [Beefy ]

At once his fellow fleas he vowed to save [Ethetran]

He called on Jim to lead the first great wave [Irene Adler]

to murder Max with Burma-Shave [Kevin Andrew Murphy]

And send him to an early grave [Irene Adler]
