  • Song Lyrics:
    Look, up in the trees! Accountants. The long day's accounts are done and they gather here in the Reigate Woods to sing accountancy shanties.

    'Twas in my youth I ran away
    To accountancy one day
    With pen and paper collar and stud
    Accountancy was in my blood
    I'll scribble away and balance the books and sing an accountancy shanty!
    I chartered an accountant at the age of twenty-one
    I'll scribble away and balance the books and sing an accountancy shanty!
    So raise a glass of medium-dry sherry
    To the golden age of VAT
    I'll scribble away and balance the books and sing an accountancy shanty!

    Ah, it's a rare sight for this part of Reigate....
    (Stavro Arrgolus)
