Queues, Lists and Ladders (Sam Whimpenny)

When I was young the way was clear to me
Waste tax payers’ money at a University
Get top class grades and a Master’s Degree
And go in half way up
To make it to the silver lining at the top of the tree

But sadly I got slowly disillusioned with this
The striving for chains and stabilised bliss
I laughed at their petty idiosyncrasies
Oh yes I know my vocabulary
Antidisestablishmentarianism me

Queues, Lists and ladders
Your face is looking slightly battered
Did you have a fight with your Secretary?
Or was it that you couldn’t get free?

Queues lists and ladders
The time it takes will make you madder
Don’t become the bore on the factory floor
Let your thoughts rise the midnight sky

The kids on the street have no more glamour than the elite
But they’re striving for a far different goal
If you ask for my advice I’ll say gladly to you:
Don’t let the other man win
Stop him even if you have to use a rolling pin

Queues lists and ladders
You’re the only one that matters
You call the cards and it’s hard to resist
You’ll soon be writing the lists
