Waterboys – Burlington Bertie & Accrington Stanley lyrics

Said burlington bertie to accrington stanley I do not like that andy pandy,
He fancies himself as a regular dandy - lets take him down a stitch

But unbeknown to accrington stanley and burlington bertie namby pamby was
Sucking a stick of cinnamon candy and watching from a ditch.

Said namby pamby to andy pandy let us tell mahatma ghandhi that burlington
Bertie and accrington stanley are up to dirty deeds.

Said mahatma ghandhi to namby pamby you and I and andy pandy must enlist the
Aid of para handy - he's the fella we need.

So away they rode - andy pandy, mahatma ghandhi and namby pamby - to the home
Of para handy beyond the western wall.

Said para handy to mahatma ghandhi I'll summon the brothers handy andy,
Dandy jim and tony pandy - experts one and all

Said tony pandy to para handy me and dandy jim and handy andy will bring you
The head of accrington stanley if it be your wish.

Said mahatma ghandhi to tony pandy, dandy jim and handy andy brin me the
Head of accrinton stanley on a silver dish.

So handy andy and tony pandy, dandy jim and para handy caught the villinous
Accrington stanley in his pants and vest.

Said accrington stanley youve caught me red-handed, Im trounced and im
Trumped, Im stumped and Im stranded. but before you go and do something
Outlandish grant me one request.

Said para handy to accrington stanley make it quick and make it handy. in 30
Seconds handy andy will remove your wicked head.

Said accrington stanley before you count 30 I'll swear on the grave of my
Great-aunt gerdie. the man you seek is burlington bertie - remove his

But para handy and tony pandy, dandy jim and handy andy, andy pandy and
Mahatma ghandhi (not to mention namby pamby) paid no attention to accrington
Stanley and beheaded him - dead!
