Ode to a well-known ukrmer...

Discussion in 'UK Motorcycles' started by Darren Robinson, Jun 13, 2004.

  1. ....to the tune of "My Darling Clementine".

    In a semi, down in Surrey,
    Waiting for a 419
    Dwelt a journo, Mr. Murray,
    And his shite old bikes so fine.

    Oh my spammer, oh my spammer ,
    Oh my spammer, 419!
    Gonna make you wish you'd never
    Sent that email, 419.

    His Ducati, seven fifty,
    Spark plugs were DPR9,
    Didn't run though, quite so nifty
    With one missing at the time.

    Oh my spark plug, oh my spark plug,
    NGK DPR9!
    Only one went in the engine
    Hold the ferry, Stena Line.

    Bought a little Kawasaki
    Quite a rare one so I'm told,
    Broke it up to sell the pieces,
    Was a model from a mould.

    Oh my Z1, oh my Z1,
    Of the small, replica sort!
    You were worth more disassembled
    Than you were when you were bought.

    Has a habit, finding loonies
    Makes them perforate their spleen,
    When they say they're going to kill him
    Cuts a notch beside his screen.

    Oh my death threat, oh my death threat,
    That the best that you can do?
    Heard them all a million times,
    I'm quite sure, I'll outlive you.

    Has a blind faith, pure and trusting
    In a Honda known to all,
    Makes a sign of benediction,
    Every time its name is called.

    Holy Pushrods, Holy Pushrods,
    Make this engine come alive,
    Make the Sign of Holy Pushrods
    Honda CG 125.

    10% was the going rate, IIRC.

    Funny you should say that. I approached various well-known UKRMers over
    whether they were happy to have the piss taken out of them in one of my

    Bear was happy to have the piss taken out of him.

    Charders was happy to have the piss taken out of ther.

    ToG was happy to have the piss taken out of him, but wanted a percentage
    of any money we might make.

  12. You lying toad! You had me racking my brain there, because I thought:
    "You know, I might have done...."

    The Older Gentleman says...
    So chaps and chapesses of ukrm, who do we believe? On one side we have
    Mr Wizard, general nice guy and all round honest good egg. On the other
    we have Mr TOG, a journalist of all things with money making tendencies.

    The choice is yours :)
    Lozzo, Jun 14, 2004
  14. You sod. Actually, I was recalling the original exchange, and I do
    remember making the demand, but assumed that it would be taken in jest.

    (Of course, if there are royalties floating around.....)
