Sir Learie Constantine has declined to stand for Parliament for the constituency of Nelson and Colne, where he used to be the cricket profes- sional, but has been elected Rector of St Andrews University.
He liked Nelson a lot, When he used to play cricket.
Blind eyes saw no blot.
He liked Nelson a lot, But Parliament's not Quite a cricketer's ticket.
He liked Nelson a lot When he used to play cricket.
The students in red Have elected Sir Learie. At St Andrews, it's said, Students' gowns are all red— But they play golf instead— Which he tends to find dreary. The students in red - Have elected Sir Learie.
