Subject: RE: Learning and remembering the words..
Thanks everyone for the ideas - and the laughs. Laughter came up as the 'getout' a few times so maybe there's something in there worth considering, perhaps just substite the odd verse for a bout of giggling. McGrath of Harlow - thanks for great idea about learning the song backwards - flawless logic, Think I'll try it for starters.

First outing with new ideas will be next weekend so if you see someone singing a shopping list backwards, shouting 'Tooroo la addio diddle dee - BUGGER' as a fill-in you'll know I've listened. Still wondering how "Whose bum is that upon the bed?" will work in the middle of 'Shipyard apprentice' though.
