Lyrics — “Gnome Overboard”

Three men and a gnome went out to sea

to slay the mighty whale

but they never came home to kiss their wives

for their ship went down in a gale

as they floated on down to their watery graves

to make the seabed their home

Tim Flannery Hall turned to his two friends

and said, “Just blame the gnome!”

Five curses and spite live in each gnome

this truth can’t be ignored

The best way to get rid of a gnome

is to throw that gnome overboard.

Their souls were taken by the judge of the deep

Old Roper was his name

Said the judge to the four, as was his want

which one of you is to blame?

The men did discuss, quite fast and quick,

with a grunt, a grumble and a groan

Said John McNash, with a finger upraised

It was that grat bloitting gnome!”

Five curses and spite live in each gnome

this truth can’t be ignored

The best way to get rid of a gnome

is to throw that gnome overboard.

The men went to heaven and the gnome to hell

As Roper justly decreed

And the men sat looking down on the gnome

just watching his spirit bleed.

When an angel with a rock came floating by

and said “What should we do with this stone?

Pat Callaghan laughed and pointed at hell

and said “Let’s all stone the gnome!”

Five curses and spite live in each gnome

this truth can’t be ignored

The best way to get rid of a gnome

is to throw that gnome overboard.
