The Tot Song

To the tune of "The times they are a changing" - Bob Dylan

Come gather Submariners throughout all the land,
You're going to hear something you won't understand,
They're stopping our tot, so say high command,
Times have started a changing,
It's one and one now, but it'll be lemonade,
For the times they are a changing.

They once gave us baccie on which we could chew,
And issued it out to me and to you,
But that soon got changed, they found something new,
Times had started a changing,
It's one and one now, but it'll be lemonade,
For the times they are a changing.

They invented the ciggie with the famous blue line,
And issued them out 300 a time,
To last you a month, that was their design,
Things just keep on a changing,
It's one and one now, but it'll be lemonade,
For the times they are a changing.

The first day of August is one that we fear,
Farewell dear old bubbly, hello cans of beer,
This Navy requires a head that is clear,
We think it's them that need changing,
It's one and one now, but it'll be lemonade,
For the times they are a changing.

Written circa July 1970 (rum ration issued for the last time on 31st July 1970) by "Sticky" Hartley HMS/M Sealion
