Subject: RE: Origins: Soldier and the Sailor (Soldier's Prayer)
I'm with Helen and Bugsy on Hamish's version, almost.....

"That wonderful, handsome, great smiling plook..."

"Plook / pluke" however you spell it means a pimple, or if you prefer, a "zit".

... and it was "May the bastard go baldy, said the Sailor, Amen"

Hamish would also on occasion change the towns or countries in the 3rd last line, depending on what was taking place in the world at the time. I distinctly remember Belfast being included on at least one occasion.
