After: "For riches and rank I do not long" from Iolanthe
- Solo and chorus: Cally and crew
I want to fight troopers and smash the State
I'm appalled by its perfidy
Yet each time we've a foe to obliterate
I'm the one who's left getting the tea
My people to me have this saying taught
Beware an Auron who's feeling fraught
My true vocation
Don't tell me to handle teleport!
I've had it with aliens in my head
And endless Monopoly
Life's not what I'd hoped for, I've been misled
With vendettas I don't agree
I can see that Avon is resolute
This Shrinker he means to execute
The crew's regressing
It's so depressing
For the Cause they just do not give a hoot.
I've had enough, I'm saying ciao!
As if you care.
I plan the struggle to resume
That's my affair.
I've had my combat trousers pressed
A view I share.
Of my comp'ny, Franton would be glad
Just going spare.
We fear the lady's serious
Or possibly delirious
Sympathy she elicits
But where's our tea and biscuits?
You can ask her, if you dare
If you dare.
