The Verger

Up in the belfry the verger stands
Pullin' on his chopper with his bloody great hands,
Parson from the pulpit loudly yells,
"Stop pullin' puddin' -- pull f***in' bells!'

cho:  Ring the bell, verger, ring the bell, ring.
      Perhaps the congregation will condescend to sing.
      Up in the belfry the verger stands,
      Pullin' on his chopper with his bloody great hands.

Ocean liner ten days late,
Stoker busy f***in' mate,
From the bridge the captain wires,
"Stop pokin' mate -- poke f***in' fires!"

Down in the garage the chauffeur lies,
Master's daughter between his thighs;
Master bellows from afar,
"Stop f***in' daughter -- start f***in' car!"

Down in the kitchen the butler and the cook
Are having fun in a cosy nook;
From the parlour comes a squeal:
"Stop f***in' cook -- cook f***in' meal!"

That's all I can remember right now.  (Got in the Royal Navy
1952.) MS
Another heard around then is:

     Ring that bell you bastard,
     Ring that f***ing bell!
     Four hours on watch
     Is a bloody long spell;
     Tired out and hungry,
     Bloody choked as well,
     So you bootneck leatherneck Royal Marine bastard,
     Ring that f***ing bell!

The tune seems to be a variant of A Wee Deoch-an-Dorus.
Got in the navy, 1952.
Tune is that of a hymn, "Take my life and let it be", the
tune name being St. Bees. MS
note: A couple more parodies of "Strike the Bell" RG
