Ian Dury - Poo-poo in the prawn

Tekst piosenki:

   I took a sudden notion
  To go down to the ocean
  I'd got my sun-tan lotion
  My flippers and my mask
  In proper distribution
  Of fully-formed ablutions
  Formed an ocean of pollution
  In which I daredn't bask
  Some turds were teeny-tiny
  And some were big and shiny
  But they all fucked up the briney
  In which I dipped my toe
  If you go swimming in the shite-us
  You'll get worse than dermititis
  From the sea of grey detritus
  Where the sewage ebbs and flows
  There's no respite
  From the cess-pit
  No shelter from the pong
  The poor old ocean
  Is full of motions
  Where the hell did we go wrong?
  Like a lamb off to the slaughter
  Pored myself a glass of water
  I failed to spot I'd caught a
  Little creature in my cup
  I was well and truly bolleaux-ed
  From the fires of hell that followed
  T’was the cup of life I'd swallowed
  And it almost did me up
  Something coming
  Through the plumbing
  That should not be there at all
  The glass is brimming
  And things are swimming
  And quite frankly, I'm appalled
  I was a very hungry fella
  I defrosted my paella
  Came down with Salmonella
  Three weeks intensive care
  They failed to send technicians in
  To check the air-conditioning
  Which was unfortunately transmissioning
  A case of Legionnaires
  There's a malaise
  In the mayonnaise
  There's a poo-poo in the prawn
  Where we missed them
  In the system
  Little germs are being born
  There's no respite
  From the cess-pit
  There's no shelter from the pong
  Where the hell did we go wrong?
