    The Nigel is screaming and the Eaton is howling, way down in Holwell
    tonight.

    There's a Z on its stand with its tank on the shelf and the cams shining
    oh so bright

    There's spanners on the floor and feelers in the head, and a bloody
    useless magnet-onna-stick

    Oh, and down in the tunnel where the camchain is rising, I swear I saw a
    valve shim, stuck in a crevice, it was saying to him "God, what a
    dick...."



    Oh camshims are the only thing in this old barge
    that're round and flat and thin
    and wherever you block and whatever you wedge
    they're always gonna find a way in

    But you gotta get it out, gotta take it out now
    before the final valve is done
    so you gotta make the most of your one sump together
    when it's open you know
    you'll both be so undone




    He's gonna hit the Blinger with a battering ram
    And an angle grinder wielded right
    Plus a bloody big hammer, and a grab-onna-stick and a little fibre
    optic light
    It's never gonna roll till he delves into that hole
    And pulls the little fucker out
    If he hits the starter now, there'll be a bloody big "Ka-pow!"
    And he'll never have to worry, no he'll never have to worry,
    About the tappets being five thou over-tight....



    Like a shim outa Hell it'll be gone when the morning comes
    When the engine turns over
    That shim out of Hell will be gone, gone, gone

    Like a shim outa Hell it'll be gone when the morning comes
    When the stripdown's done
    And the shim's fished out
    And the crankshaft shining through
    And like a shimmer before the camchain tunnel
    I'll come shimming on back to you



    And he knows that he's blinged if it never gets out
    And maybe he's blinged if it do
    But with any other heap he'd have let it fall apart
    And now he'd prob'ly be reaching for glue

    If he gotta be blinged you know he wanna be blinged
    Searching for the shim he knew
    If he gotta be blinged you know he wanna be blinged
    Gotta be blinged you know heanna be blinged
    If he gotta be blinged you know he wanna be blinged

    Searching for the shim
    Searching for the shim
    Searching for the shim
    Searching for the shim he knew



    It was a hot summer night and the crank was turning
    There was a engine oil all over your hand
    When you lifted off the cam you saw the sprocket turning
    Then the bastard shim was
    Falling through your trembling hands

    You were squinting your eyes with your maglite shining
    It would turn the engine's contents to paste
    It was lying all hidden in the crankcase lining
    By the light of the torch
    You know there's not another moment
    Not another moment
    Not another moment to waste

    The engine's so heavy that your knees grow weak
    It weighs in at three hundred pound'
    You're straining your back but no matter what you do
    You just can't seem to get it off the ground

    And then you dropped the shim right into your sump
    Oh it must have been while you were making tea
    You dropped the shim right into your sump
    And you swear it's true
    You were gonna get someone to do it.
    And then you dropped the shim right into your sump
    Oh it must have been while you were making tea
    You dropped the shim right into your sump
    And you swear it's true
    You were gonna get someone to do it.

    Now your body is shaking like a cat on a hotplate
    And you guess that you're beginning to fizz
    Oooh, you're finally alone and you can do what you want to
    The night is young
    And you still don't know where
    Still don't know where
    Still don't know where it is.
