The Lyrics

Set in a South African library

She said I must obey
Rules that are on display
I said, “Okay, I agree”
I've had ten beers or so
An’ that was a while ago
So now I’d better have a pee
I spot some chick I’d do
Big tits an’ low IQ
“Hey, wanna drink? Wha’d’ya think? Fancy a brew?”

(Library staff) & head librarian

Oi, no
Oi, no
Oi, no, no, no, no, no
(Remember) talkin’ here is banned
(Remember) fine is eighty Rand
(Remember) you’re here for some perusin’
(Remember) not for girlie cruisin’
(Remember) told you not to speak
(Remember) nothin’ from your lips
Stop it…stop it, don’t look at my nips


Into a rage she flew
She hit me with a shoe
An’ now my nose is askew
Called her a stupid moo
She said the fuzz are due
I’m in a stew, what a cow!

(Library staff) & head librarian

(Remember) I can have you banned
(Remember) I play underhand
(Remember) I’ll say that you were stealin’
(Remember) or maybe you were dealin’
(Remember) now you’re up the creek
(Remember) I know all the cops
(Remember) fear me…

Well, that was different! I wasn't aware of that song by the Shangri-La's, so an education for me. I am spotting a certain theme in your parodies, Andy :) Tell me though, was it set in South Africa so 'rand' would fit, or have I missed something?

Cheers Pip. Surprised you didn't know it. Absolutely so 'Rand' would fit
