Four caving verses have been added to this bawdy song but I have included as many of the original bawdy verses as I can remember. There are others so if you can remember them please email me. A boulder ruckle is a heap of boulders, usually at the bottom of a chamber, through which one can often find a route. Fault planes and jointing are geological terms for limestone strata. Dave Berry and George Pointing used to prop up the Hunters bar. Oliver Lloyd also composed caving songs.

There were three whores from Plymouth town, drinking the red red wine,
And the gist of the conversation was is yours as big as mine,
Is yours as big as mine me boys, is yours as big as mine,
And the gist of the conversation was is yours as big as mine,
CHORUS:
She had a dark and roving eye and a whizz bang up her jacksie,
She was one of the dark eyed whores, one of the old brigade.
Then up then spoke the cavers wife and she did wear a buckle,
And in one corner of her ct she had a boulder ruckle,
She had a boulder ruckle boys, the boulders and the scree,
And in the other corner, she had the B.E.C.
