It's time to get out fishing, for fishing it is time
Red Leader said get on the pole, Vimesy said rod and line
Pompous git was balling in, babbies heads and Jaffa's
Neil o the Nene was potting tight, with groundbait bought from Adsa's

the snow was laying white and crisp the bankside was all slippy
the moderators all stood by, in case anyone got lippy
The politics room was getting warm, all that hot air was frightening
the Tory bods and Labour lot were setting up for fighting

Santa's sleigh landed hard, upon the website servers
the site went down and all around the Drowners all got nervous
but all was saved you'll be amazed, you'll never guess the hero
he jiggled the plug cos he's no mug, yes it was UKZero

they carried him at shoulder height, on the bankside they did run
Lads will have their laughs Dave thought, and Idly scratched his bum
the snow was falling hard now, the temperature was droppin'
but he hadn't had a single bite and his brow he was a-moppin

the moderators all cried out, "watch out there lads its slippy"
but in they went, the ice was rent, and 'eee by gum it were nippy
they staggered out all dripping wet, off to the clubhouse they all staggered
where they found Red Leader's wallet and the lot of em got *ankered

This going "sticky" ....... best post of the year (y):blahblah::blahblah:

It actually sounds ok if you sing it to King Wenceslas, doesn't quite fit but with a bit of tweaking you can get it thereabouts ;)

Good king Webster last logged on saw the site was swinging.

Geoff P moaning Trogg was calm, wise owl he was singing.

Mick the chippy looking out just to see who’s swearing, Peter with a pound off Dave said he is past caring.

The Xmas draw was getting near who will get the Banker.

It won’t be Dam cos he is banned for calling boss a W.nker

Happy Xmas one and all the time to be all merry, watch what ya post during this time if Geoff’s bin on the sherry??

Ivan Heaphurst first looked out
To see the rain a falling
Ivan Heaphurst went back to bed
Even though the fish were calling

Ivan has done going out in weather
He did that when a nipper
Stays tucked up with his lovely wife
Enjoying the benifits of married life


To the tune of Good King Wensalass

Oh Christmas tree oh Christmas tree
My feeders in your branches
Oh Christmas tree oh Christmas tree
What were the efing chances
A gust of wind it blew so strong my cast it went off course
My feeder veered from left to right into your thick concourse.

Sung to the tune of a spaceman came travelling - un-poetic licence taken where it doesn't rhyme.

A Drowner came travelling in his car from afar
'Twas before daylight since his mission did start
And by the Trent, he halted his craft
And it sat on the bank light up like a star, just like a star

He followed the way and came down to a peg
Where he knew the barbel were lying there
A bright light of silver shone from his head torch
And he had the face of an angler and the barbel were afraid.

Then the drowner spoke, he said, we’ll have some out of here
I come from a place a long way from here
And I bring a message for you fishes to hear
And suddenly the sweetest music filled the air
And it went la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la la

Peace and goodwill to all men and love for the barbel
La la la la la la la la la, la la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la la, oh
This lovely music went trembling through the ground
And many fish began to feed, on hearing that sound

And just before dawn at the paling of the sky
The drowner packed up and said, now I must fly
When twelve months of your time has gone by
This song will begin once again to a feeder’s flight.

And it went la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la la
This song will begin once again to a feeder’s flight
And it goes la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la la la la

Peace and goodwill to all drowners and love for the fish
Oh the whole world is waiting, waiting to hear the song again (la la la la la la la la la)
There are thousands standing on the edge of the river (la la la la la la la la la)
And the rod is moving somewhere, the time is nearly here (la la la la la la la la la)
This song will begin once again to a feeder’s flight

Hark now hear The Drowners sing ?
World sea fishing ran away ?
Anglers net, is dead for sure ?
The posters stay away. ?
