The Lyrics

Thanks to Andy Primus for the idea.
Stuck in a swelt’ring flue
in Queen Vic times.

You know what you would have to do?
Get to climbing
inside there,
griming.

Though you couldn’t stand it,
you’d have to go down
into that firebrand pit,
scrub out nasty creosote, gray-brown
caked in that swelt’ring flue.
You, caked with slimy grime.

In the flue:
stuck there, you
Soot makes you
go “Achoo!” from your snout
Not fun in there;
it’s claustrophoby,
so you want out—
and quickly.

But in that hellish flue
you spend your time.

LOL at "Soot makes you go “Achoo!” from your snout".

See if any of these take your fancy - "I Have A Swell IQ", "Stuck In A Portaloo", "I'm Gonna Tell On You", "My Burger's Kangaroo" & "I Trod In Shih Tzu Poo". Also, I notice from a scan of the index that you haven't done a title ending in rendezvous.
