Thread Name: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Subject: RE: BS: The Mother of all BS threads
Me mother was a BS thread
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
With rings of fancies 'round her head!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

She was mighty long and awful tall
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
And she moved around like a cannon-ball!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

Me mother she had twenty kids,
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
An' never minded what they did!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

She kept them clothed and kept them fed
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
And laid belying bars to their heads!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

And though this made their puir heads sore.
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
She says we often asked for more
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

One night when I my watch did stand
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
I felt me Mother's ghostly hand!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

"What has of all my young became?"
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
Her spirit whispered in my brain.
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

Oh, one has joined a band of cooks
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
And another trawls among old books!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

And several more have gone a stray
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
ANd never write from day to day!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

And one, the most contrarian
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
Says he is now a librarian!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

Me mother's spirit wept and wailed
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
And swore as Mom she'd surely failed!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

She cussed and swore and wept her tears
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
ANd suddenly, she disappeared!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

And to the day I do confess
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
I miss my Mom of All BS
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line

Me mother was a BS thread
Heave and haul, my bully boys!
With rings of fancies 'round her head!
Oh, heave and haul on the BS line
