  • Of trouble on horizon
    By my remarks I was certain
    I was destined persecution

    But then I took a chase after the Bournemouth Runner!
    Bournemouth Runner!
    C-c-could dare
    Bournemouth Runner!
    First night

    Bournemouth Runner!
    He was a Bournemouth Runner!

    Bournemouth Runner!
    Didn't get far
    Bournemouth Runner!
    First night
    Bournemouth Runner!
    But the second night
    He got away with our guiding light

    Was chilled to the bone
    At 8am
    On a Bournemouth morn
    There was a drum deck
    Outside [Route/room] 51
    Two nights before
    Bristol ball
    A runner took backdrop, exit hall


    Bournemouth Runner!
    Raced a couple of hundred yards
    Bournemouth Runner!
    Barman clipped his ears
    Bournemouth Runner!
    Spitted and shifted
    Bournemouth Runner!
    Backdrop dissipated
    Bournemouth Runner!
    He was the Bournemouth Runner!

    How could we now it was the Bournemouth Runner?

    Bournemouth Runner!
    Raced a couple of hundred yards
    Bournemouth Runner!
    Barman clipped his ears
    Bournemouth Runner!
    Spitted and shifted
    Bournemouth Runner!
    Backdrop dissipated
    Bournemouth Runner!
    He was the Bournemouth Runner!

    Took away our guiding light


    Our backdrop was friendly, heavy
    Often it would rumble into hotel
    And partake with us
    In diluted drink and dogmeat
    Of RAC recommended hostelry

    Bournemouth Runner!
    Shifted and twisted
    Bournemouth Runner!
    On beach sand sifted
    Bournemouth Runner!
    In the best home
    Bournemouth Runner!
    Locks picked
    Bournemouth Runner!

    Should've known better
    Than to underrate
    Bournemouth sucker
    Took away our guiding light

    Bournemouth Runner!
    Calendar
    Bournemouth Runner!
    I'v forgotten the date
    Bournemouth Runner!
    No plot
    Bournemouth Runner!
    You're welcome
    Bournemouth Runner!
    It was coated in poison
    Bournemouth Runner!


    Have to buy a new one.......
