About That Big (England) Job

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 I’ve done some ‘big-jobs’ in my time
upon the field and ground
by birth-right I am Scottish
and in the West I’m found
when last the post was offered
like lamps on any street
I raised a leg and cocked my head
but at the end was beat

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 they know me as the terrier
I’m dashing debonaire
when Fawlty Towers was on the screen
my name was everywhere
I think you get the picture
the missing wheel and cog
my name is Basil Westy
I’m Stroud’s poetic dog

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 I’m tempted by the media
the money it means nought
for unlike cats with their own flaps
I cannot just nip out
a faithful friend a chaser
a man of pride and rage
that’s me the white and fluffy one
right here on this home page

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 it might be risky to apply
it could end in disaster
but it’s not really down to me
you’ll’ have to ask my master …



as in Master Stuart Butler!
right..less than sad 2 minutes..no wonder….how sad though would Martin O’Neill feel if it got down to being between him and a dog..
