Hold It Up Buttercup

To the tune of The Foundation's Build Me Up Buttercup

Why did you hold it up, (hold it up), take a look, Downing,
Just to bump us down, (bump us down), and mess us around?
And then worst of all, (worst of all),
Corpus came charging and we almost spooned, (almost spooned),
Without the full crew.
We need you, (we need you), more than anyone, Thornton.
You know that we have a huge start
So wind it up, (wind it up), Jonathan; up the Bumps chart.

Sparring in Ely, we can win easily,
Oh but no, the train won't let us on.
We lost Ben, he's sore, he can't row anymore,
Without Ben, we need a sub again.

(Hey, hey, hey) Ian, baby, push us out
(Hey, hey, hey) Bow pair a tap, to make the chain taut
(Hey, hey, hey) We'll be sat,
we will bury our blades waiting for Go
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo

Why did you hold it up, (hold it up), take a look, Downing,
Just to bump us down, (bump us down), and mess us around?
And then worst of all, (worst of all),
Corpus came charging and we almost spooned, (almost spooned),
Without the full crew.
We need you, (we need you), more than anyone, Thornton.
You know that we have a huge start
So wind it up, (wind it up), Jonathan; up the Bumps chart.

"I'll be over in ten," said Petr time and again,
But he's late! We waited in the boat.
We trained for the Bumps with Jirka's glorious guns,
And now we're here, Emily's ready to steer.

(Hey, hey, hey) Ian, baby, push us out
(Hey, hey, hey) Bow pair a tap, to make the chain taut
(Hey, hey, hey) We'll be sat,
we will bury our blades waiting for Go
Ooo-oo-ooo, ooo-oo-ooo

Why did you hold it up, (hold it up), take a look, Downing,
Just to bump us down, (bump us down), and mess us around?
And then worst of all, (worst of all),
Corpus came charging and we almost spooned, (almost spooned),
Without the full crew.
We need you, (we need you), more than anyone, Thornton.
You know that we have a huge start
So wind it up, (wind it up), Jonathan; up the Bumps chart.

We need you, (we need you), more than anyone, Thornton.
You know that we have a huge start
So wind it up, (wind it up), Jonathan; up the Bumps chart.
