Thread Name: Lyr Req: There's a Long, Long Trail (parodies)
Subject: RE: Gene? Long. Long Trail Awinding
A somg about a endanged species of snail threatened by a by-pass.

Written by Joy Rutherford, (see The Bold Librarian in the DB)
I'll try to get the lyrics when I next see her.
The chorus goes something like this:-

Chorus:

We are the Valiant Snails of England,
sliding along the by-pass.
Leaving silvery trails behind us,
on the wet, green grass.
And we have no hooves to trample,
and no wings for to fly.
Only our houses on our shoulders,
and our horns held on high.
