Adjusting previous post:

Greensleeves is a boring song,
Gree-eenslee-eeves goes on and on,
and on and on
and on and on
And that's why no one here will sing Greensleeves.

The Green Stamps song runs

I found my love in a grocery shop,
Selling pickles and egg-plants and bottles of pop;
She asked me to try her asparagus tips,
And I fell for the smile on her ruby red lips.

Chorus:
Green stamps were all she gave,
Green stamps were all I took,
Green stamps were all I saved,
So I pasted them all in my green stamp book.

I'd go every day just to gaze at her face,
And in no time at all I had bought out the place.
Though ne'er did I e'er taste her ruby red lips,
I own four thousand cans of asparagus tips.

Whenever I'm lonely or tired or blue,
I go to my bookshelf and here's what I do:
I reach for that book and then with loving care,
I count every green stamp that's pasted in there.

Cameronís Lament (Greensleeves parody)

Alas! The press has done me wrong,
And treated me discourteously,
Greensill should have made me rich,
I had shares in the company.

Chorus
Greensill was all my joy,
Greensill was my delight,
Greensill was my purse of gold,
And whoíd make me rich but Greensill?


In my shepherdís hut I dreamed of wealth,
I lobbied for contracts extensively,
The Chancellor and Minister of Health,
Sunak and Hancock listened to me.

Alas! My dreams were all in vain,
Now Greensill lies in bankruptcy,
Iíve reflected on my conduct again,
And Iím sure I acted honestly.

Iíve kept my silence for so long,
I hope you wonít think ill of me,
Iím sure I never have done wrong
I acted for chumocracy.

Matthew Edwards 13 April 2021

The Greensill references are to a British political affair involving the former UK Prime Minister, David Cameron, who lobbied ministers on behalf of Greensill Bank which has gone bankrupt. Greensill Lobbying Scandal
