"Richard Crossman the well-known privy, / Cheekily queries her Majesty's divi, / 'Look
at her personal lolly' - saith he - / Rubbing his hands with usurious glee - / 'Tax her assets,
every dime - / As long as they keep their paws off mine!' 'Hot pants are out' - the Hon-sec said,
/ Our tweedier members are seeing red / Faintin' in bunkers with loud cries and snorts / at the
sight of you dollies in very short shorts - / What's that you said - the Walker Cup's won? /Then
grab me a waistful and let's have some fun!" Up on the fence Harold settles his rump, / Wond'ring
just which way he should jump - / 'Sunny-Jim's jumped, he's nobody's fool - / Shouting what about
Itchen, Bromsgrove and Goole! / But, devious Harold's a wilier squawker - / he's remembering
Smethwick and Pat Gordon-Walker."
