Eight men (Dunleavy)

To the tune of Three Lions (Baddiel & Skinner & Lightning Seeds). A video is available, courtesy of Neil Copland. It is around 60MB, so may take a while to download. Lovers of music or technology are strongly advised not to watch it.

Chris: Caius II look pretty good, so I would imagine they would bump up and get FaT II on the first day. FaT II have looked pretty ordinary recently.

Seb: They're going down, they're going down, they're going
FaT 2's going down

All: We're staying up, we're staying up, we're staying
FaT 2's staying up

Seb: They're going down, they're going down, they're going
FaT 2's going down

All: We're staying up, we're staying up, we're staying
FaT 2's staying up

Everyone seems to know the score
They've seen it on the message boards
They just know, they're so sure
That First and Third are gonna get spoons
And be bumped by Caius 2, but I know they can row
Cos Seb's in Granta

Eight men in a boat
Footplates keep on cracking
Six long weeks of hurt
Almost stopped us spacking

So many boats for us to break
The bathtub and the slinky
when you're down, past the lock
and little Tom is weighing us down
Albert's wrist is still limp, with a midget at five
But Seb's in Granta

Eight men in a boat
Balls as hard as nails
One week left til Bumps
Gregor's left the country

Wound it to forty off the start
We just took Caius apart
Then we stormed, through the Gut
And Selwyn's cox is screwing it up
They just can't hold us back, and we're going to bump
Cos Seb's in Granta

Eight men in a boat
Thought we had it covered
One long year of hurt
We'll be back to get them

Chris: First and Third have done it, on the exit of Grassy!

And Caius have produced a storming performance; Caius have bumped First and Third on the last day of the May Bumps. Looks like it won't be a fairytale ending after all for FaT M2.

We're staying up, we're staying up, we're staying
We are staying up

They're going down, they're going down, they're going
Selwyn's going down

We're staying up, we're staying up, we're staying
We are staying up

They're going down, they're going down, they're going
Selwyn's going down
