Has anyone got the alternative lyrics to Gaudete. I think Les Barker might have done it. Mentions things like St Pancreas

Sounds typically Les!

John Kirkpatrick included this between verses in his 'Carolling and Crumpets' from the album of the same name...

Cows eat hay, but today it's juiced tomatoes
Eggs for tea the turkey lay yesterday...

Not what you're looking for, but on the same theme!

Found it here, and it seems Sid Kipper (alias Chris Sugden) is responsible:

Awayday
(Sid Kipper)

Chorus
Away day, away day, loco in transit
Omnibus, St pancreas, away day
Away day, away day, loco in transit
Omnibus, St pancreas, away day

Cleopatra virginae, terra incognito
in loco parentis caesar mutlio calcutta

Chorus

Troyalus et Cressida, con Homo erectus
Strangulated hernia, coitus interruptus

Chorus

Romulus et Remus, in flagrante delicto
Honi soit qui mal y pense, Harry Belafontee

Chorus

Gina Lollobrigida, Osteo Arthritis
In vino veritas, Peter Dominicus

Chorus

Non compos mentis, continuo ad nauseam
Ad lib, et cetera, quod erat demonstrandum

Chorus repeat

I heard at Bedworth last weekend another parody with chorus something like

  Gaudy tree, gaudy tree is part of Christmas
  Bring us beer and put the rum in the tea



I don't know if it's derived from or separate from this local parody:
Gaudy tree in Christmas Parodies thread

Yes, that particular Gaudy Tree was credited by one of the group who sang it at Bedworth (Thrup'nny Bits) as having been writ by Norman Wheatley of Warwick Folk Club.
Another for the collection...!
