bilby commented on the word precious possessions
Ohhhh 'Twas in the month of November
In Nineteen Forty Three
That the officers' mess caught fire,
Oh dearie dearie me.
And into that terrible fire
Major Jenkins did rush in
To save his precious possessions,
His wig, his teeth, his gin.
But as he threw his treasures out
Gunner Pills committed a sin,
For as fast as the Major threw them out
He threw them all back in.
