lyrics

A large world of wonders, in one closet shut
What other professor than nature is met?
John Hunter’s collection
The Evelyn tables
Moved to South Ken from the Barber surgeons
Every tool has two ends working - One on the man and one on the specimen

Ga coffins in Ghana
Expaptation
Ellis Inhalor
Chris Curry versus Clive Sinclair, at the Baron of Beef

Bairstow was too perfectionist to publish
Stuck in a diving suit, he walked up Knightsbridge to seek help
Polite and moustached
Filing string too small to use
Peter Purves survived a fall into the stripping tank when drunk
Led the Tetrapod Club to the Goat pub

Peter Whitehead was full of fish bile, but seduced each and every girl
Breakfast from beyond Oxford, in first class
Took his brother to court for the Lordship and wrote a satire on the corporate masters
Discovered a lost Mozart score
Disappeared to die in Mexico with a beautiful girl
Heron Alan the violin maker and flowery novelist
Persian linguist
Keeper of the cursed, baleful amethyst

Alan Hart’s cast of the Koh-i-Noor
Never throw a thing away
Digging the guru of the bones out of Lincoln’s Inn fray
Towers of NHM are the furthust reaches of Gormenghast
You could go mad Lankester
Man on the Clapham omnibus

Gavin de Beers - fleeing burning breakfasts, as they say
A collapse of stout party, recorded by Richard Fortey

Denis Tucker was fired for Nessie
Anagram ploy

I was into Touchstone and Magenta a lot (although they are cheesy)
Ha ha thisaway, ha ha thataway,ha ha thisaway, my oh my!
