Score of Down Below
The BEC web site has a version of this song which I have never heard before but if you are interested in the words you can get them here. The verses I know consist of only four which Andy Nicol claims to have written and we certainly did sing at the Hunters. The tune and lyrics are based on the well known Irish song "The Wild Rover" which the Dubliners group made famous in the 1960's.

I've been a hard caver for manys the year,
And I've spend all my money on caving and beer,
And now I'm returning with bruises galore,
Sure I never will play the hard caver no more.

CHORUS:
And its no nay never,
No nay never no more,
Will I play the hard caver,
No never no more.

We decided one morning to bottom Car Pot,
And at once half the members were off like a shot,
We took a poor novice through babtistry crawls,
If the bastard gets out kick him right in the balls.

CHORUS:
I took from my pocket two gelegnite sticks,
Saying Babtistry crawl I will fix in two ticks,
I let off the charge with a fucking great bang,
And I found myself back on the surface again.

CHORUS:
I'll go down to Mendip and Swildons at last,
And I'll end all my caving in one mighty blast,
I'll do the Blue Pencil and swim through to five,
And I hope that I'll come out of Swildons alive.

CHORUS:
