Mad Dogs and Englishmen

garryblGarrybl on 10/02/2006

MadDogsandEnglishmen Photo Im sure there would be no agreement as to the funniest song ever written in English. However it would be hard to deny that over the course of his career Noel Coward wrote some of the wittiest songs. A quintessential Englishman, he skewered the foibles of the ruling class. His masterpiece was called Mad Dogs and Englishmen, referring to their habit of braving the heat when sensible people would be having a siesta. Im going to quote the full lyrics of the song but until you hear him sing it (it is readily available on the Internet) you wont get the full charm of it.
Whenever I leave a blank, all you have to do is fill it in.

To get you started, here is the first verse.

"In tropical climes there are certain times of day
When all the citizens retire to tear their clothes off and perspire.
It's one of the rules that the greatest fools obey,
Because the sun is much too sultry
And one must avoid its ultry-violet ray.
The natives grieve when the white men leave their huts,
Because they're obviously, definitely nuts!"
