  •  The Duke of Plaza-Toro (2+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:
    QuoVadis, Clem Yeobright

    Chickenharks have been around for quite some time:

    In enterprise of martial kind,
    When there was any fighting,
    He led his regiment from behind
    (He found it less exciting).
    But when away his regiment ran,
    His place was at the fore, O-
    That celebrated,
    Cultivated,
    Underrated
    Nobleman,
    The Duke of Plaza-Toro!
    In the first and foremost flight, ha, ha!
    You always found that knight, ha, ha!
    That celebrated,
    Cultivated,
    Underrated
    Nobleman,
    The Duke of Plaza-Toro!
    (from the poem by William S. Sullivan)

      Bravely bold Sir Robin rode forth from Camelot
      He was not afraid to die, O brave Sir Robin
      He was not at all afraid to be killed in nasty ways
      Brave, brave, brave, brave Sir Robin

      He was not in the least bit scared to be mashed into a pulp
      Or to have his eyes gouged out and his elbows broken
      To have his kneecaps split and his body burned away
      And his limbs all hacked and mangled, brave Sir Robin

      His head smashed in and his heart cut out
      And his liver removed and his bowels unplugged
      And his nostrils raped and his bottom burnt off
      And his penis...
        (Well that's enough music for now, lads...)

      Brave Sir Robin ran away - No!
      Bravely ran away, away - I didn't!
      When danger reared its ugly head
      He bravely turned his tail and fled - No!
      Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about
      And gallantly he chickened out
      Bravely taking to his feet
      He beat a very brave retreat
      Bravest of the brave, Sir Robin
