I once was happy as could be

A branch upon a mighty tree

The Canadian Rockies were my home

From which I thought Iíd never roam.


Then one day, I think in May

Three lumberjacks strolled along

With hairy chests in dirty vests,

Singing a Python song.


The girly one, they called him Sue

Cried "Look Iím sure this one will doĒ

Swung a blow with his mighty chopper

OMG it was a whopper.


All too soon we were bits of tree

For England bound across the sea

Shaped, chiselled and sandpapered down

Brought to a Grog shop in old Camden Town.


Oh! Lordy the sights I was to see

In this awful den of iniquity

A hooker and a cross-eyed bloke

Were supping lamp oil laced with coke.


While an ancient craggy faced old doll

Was gyrating round an upright pole

The rumour was, or so they say

He had come ashore that very day.


My fate was sealed, the die was cast

I had found my future home at last

Please forgive my shame I beg

Cos now Iím Long Johnís wooden leg.
