The TUC! The TUC!

Has been a busy little bee, Working for resolutions hard By votes upon a Union card Believing wages should be free Of any controls stAtutory, But having to keep up with Jones, In spite of many moans and groans From bumbling, furry, little Clive Buzzing around inside the hive, Sternly rebuked by Queen Marie, Who said that wages should be free; Freely controlled to stop a rise Above a mystic, sixy, size.

When Hugh cried, "That's duplicity!", Marie said, "No. Tucissity!

It was devised by Jack and Len, And written with a split-quill pen."

It's been a busy little bee, The TUC! The TUC!
