Hurry and see, hurry and see the ship trapped in the ice!

I plan to write a review of Andy Partridge's Fuzzy Warbles series later. For now, I must inflict on my friends list this track, which has surely got to be the catchiest song on the whole ding-dong:

Ship Trapped In The Ice


Hurry and see, hurry and see the ship trapped in the ice.
Hurry and see, hurry and see, the frost on the rigging's superficially nice.
The captain sold his marbles and the crew lost theirs at dice.
Hurry and see, hurry and see the ship trapped in the ice.

How can we free, how can we free the ship trapped in the ice?
How can we free, how can we free? They sailed in the shallows, now they're paying the price.
The captain drank the champagne but it tasted like Old Spice.
How can we free, how can we free the ship trapped in the ice?

And I can only see this wreck with the aid of a drink and a mirror.
She may look scenic from the shore but you don't want to come any nearer.

[Instrumental]

The captain's box of butterflies have all hatched out as lice.
Hurry and see, hurry and see the ship trapped in the ice.

And I can only see this wreck with the aid of a drink and a mirror.
She may look scenic from the shore but you don't want to come any nearer.

How can this be, how can this be the ship trapped in the ice?
How can this be, how can this be? The frozen contract's got 'em gripped like a vise.
The captain dreams of flying but he's oh so scared of heights!
How can this be? 'Cause Mama, it's me!
The ship trapped in... the ice.
