ACCOUNTANCY SHANTY
Monty Python


LEAD PIRATE:

Full speed ahead, Mr. Cohen!


CHORUS:

Up, up, up your premium. Up, up, up your premium.

PIRATE:

Scribble away!

CHORUS:

Up, up, up your premium.

PIRATE:

And balance the books.

CHORUS:

Up, up, up your premium.

PIRATE:

Scribble away!

CHORUS:

Up, up, up your premium.

PIRATE:

But manage the books.

CHORUS:

Up, up, up.


PIRATES:

It's fun to charter an accountant

And sail the wide accountancy,

To find, explore the funds offshore

And skirt the shoals of bankruptcy!


It can be manly in insurance.

We'll up your premium semi-annually.

It's all tax deductible.

We're fairly incorruptible,

We're sailing on the wide accountancy!


LEAD PIRATE:

Oh, this is fun, Mr. Cohen!

PIRATE:

Sail away!...

CHORUS:

Up, up, up...

LEAD PIRATE:

Fetch me another exotic salute. To port! Bring her port to shell out! And the medium guys shell out to port! Balance the books! Bring me another small shellfish, Mr. Cohen...
