Eric the Viking Lyr Req: Bloody Orkney Reply (30) Lyr Add: THE KIRKWALLIAN'S LAMENT 20 Dec 09


THE KIRKWALLIAN'S LAMENT-was an indignant (and anonymous reply) Published in the Orkney blast

This bloody war's a bloody cuss
For what it's bought to bloody us
Such bloody trouble, bloody fuss
Oh bloody, bloody

The navy takes the bloody bun
With gold braid by the bloody ton
This bloody town they try to run
Oh bloody, bloody

They commandeer each bloody hall
And at their bloody beck and call
They want us one and bloody all
Oh bloody, bloody

Strutting round like bloody hens
Supercilious bloody wrens
Can scarcely push their bloody pens
Oh bloody, bloody

Our so called soldiers bloody gay
With two and bloody six a day
Their bloody looks keep Huns away
Oh bloody, bloody

Brass-hats by the bloody score
Drink their pay and shout for more
No wonder Tommy's bloody sore
Oh bloody, bloody

Immaculate bloody glamour boys
In smoky blue, like bloody toys
Parade with studied bloody poise
Oh bloody, bloody

Despite all benefits bestowed
These bloody forces write an ode
To ridicule our loved abode
Oh bloody, bloody

Wish this bloody war was o'er
We'll hound them from our bloody shore
And live in peace for evermore
Oh bloody, bloody


And that, including my earlier stuff, is everything I can find that connects to "Bloody Orkney"

I can understand completely why it was written. If someone can post them in the DT I'll be grateful. There should be an exclamation mark at the end of each verse as there level of frustration grows!!
Merry Christmas from snowy, and cold (at the moment) Orkney
