Heading
McCullough And Guinea

Everyday we went to the amusement arcade and sank the General Belgrano for 5p a go. One day we'll do it for real.

McCullough and Guinea and I
Sat in the sail as the harbour swept by
Waving life in Faslane goodbye
We slammed the hatch at the order to dive
And I wink my invisible eye
As I steer through a hole in the water in search of a sign
I'll give you the earth and the sky

With idles and all on parade
The southern Atlantic our destiny made
With torpedoes and sonar arrayed
We whipped up the turbines and sped for the cape
Off the Straits of Confusion we lay
And there in our sights was the flagship steering away
I thanked God for making my day

The attack was timed
The latitude lines and slide rules mapped out the facts and figures
The arrowhead tips and the bowstrings quivered
And when the fax arrived the tracks aligned
Pac Man screamed as I squeezed the trigger
The Rubicon crossed was just a river

The most senior of services we
With weevils and biscuits and rum in our tea
On half-rations of mutton and beans
With vectors detectors and video screens
A total command of the sea
Her capes her trenches her stacks her shoals and her reefs
Will ours to administer be

Then McCullough and Guinea and I
Switched off the Gameboy sat back and sighed
With relief with exhaustion with pride
We lit up our Woodbines placidly smiled
And we took to our quarters that night
Lulled by the rock and roll of Antarctica's tides
While in the water our enemies died

McCullough and Guinea and I
Sat in the sail as the harbour swept by
Waving life in Faslane goodbye
We slammed the hatch at the order to dive
And I wink my invisible eye
As I steer through a hole in the water in search of a sign
I'll give you the earth and the sky
