Bo Dudley (Shave and a haircut, two bits)

I talk forty-seven types of hogwash

I spend a million pounds on my necktie

I got a brand new island in Bermuda

Made out of cancer cells

I got a brand new bung going forward

Made from investors’ skins

Now come and take a little walk, Aberdeen,

Tell me, What’s not to love?

 

What’s not to love?
What’s not to love?
What’s not to love?
What’s not to love?
What’s not to love?

 

Gemstone hands and an oil-slick mind

Just sixty-one and I don’t mind flying

 

What’s not to love?
What’s not to love?
What’s not to love?
What’s not to love?
What’s not to love?

 

I’m barrels of laughs when the profits dip

Discretionary bonus, doncha give me no lip

 

What’s not to love?
What’s not to love?
What’s not to love?
What’s not to love?
What’s not to love?

Oil is black, bank balance too

Do I pay tax? Aw hell do you?

I’m a man on fire, far as I’m concerned

You couldn’t dream what I just earned

What’s not to love?
What’s not to love?
What’s not to love?
What’s not to love?
What’s not to love?

 

Aberdeen took me by my wad

And she said Ooo-wee, Bo, You sure are God

With apologies to Bo Diddley (d. 2008) whose beneficiaries are currently taking legal action against Diddley’s Trust’s accountant.
