I'm sure this was flat when it left the factory.

Arguably the best version of this song....

It only cost £1, so the fact that it kinda doesn't work (yet) is not a problem.

I was just reminded of this old chestnut... I've heard various versions, but I think this one is the best....


Everybody, Anybody, Somebody, Nobody and Someone Else

Let me tell you the story
Of four young lads by the name
Of Tom, Dick, Harry and Joe.
Their full names in fact were as such;

Tom Somebody,
Dick Everybody,
Harry Anybody,
and Joe Nobody.
Together they were the best of friends,
But I must confess
when to came to a task they weren't very good.

You see when ever they were given a job
They all began to fight.
Because this is how it always went;
Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it,
And Anyone could have done it
But in the end Nobody always ended up with the task.

When Nobody did it,
Somebody was angry because it was Everybody's job.
But Everybody thought that Somebody would do it instead.
Now Nobody realized that Nobody would do it.
So consequently Everybody blamed Somebody
When Nobody did what Anybody could have done
In the first place.

Now don't start arguing yet
because I have another story
of these friends to tell

Now as you may have guessed
these four were fun, active, busy people
But what they accomplished was a shame and Everyone knew it.
You see Everybody had a good idea,
But Everybody thought Somebody would follow it through,
However Somebody thought Anybody would work on it.
And Anybody thought Everybody should do it.

So Nobody ended up working on it...AGAIN!

Now one day a contest was announced,
All the boys were sent to enter.
Now Everybody thought Anybody could win the prize.
Anybody thought Somebody would win.
And Somebody thought Everybody would get a prize.
Nobody was the smartest of the four.
And Nobody was very faithful.
Nobody worked very hard.
Thus Nobody won the prize!

No I have one more tale to tell you
of another friend of the four
this is a sad sad tale of the death of
a man called Someone Else;

You see all the boys work at a firm
and at this firm worked Someone Else.
Now the four were greatly saddened
to learn of the death of one of the most
valuable member - Someone Else.

Someone's passing created a vacancy
that will be difficult to fill.
He had been around for years and for
everyone of those years,
Someone did far more that a normal person's
share of work.
Whenever Anybody mentioned leadership,
Somebody always looked to this wonderful
person for inspiration and results;
"Someone Else can do that job!"

When there was a job to do, a need to be filled
or a place of leadership, one name was always given....
....Someone Else.
Everyone knew Someone else was the largest giver
of time and money.
Whenever there was a financial need,
Everybody, Anybody and Somebody always
assumed that Someone Else would make up the difference.
Now Someone Else is gone.
And the boys all wonder what they will do,
No longer can they utter the words;
"Let Someone Else do it"
If it is going to be done, one of them
will have to do it....And I guess most of the time
it will be Nobody.

Good value. Well built, but don't poke it with more than 240V AC, 'cos that input protection looks a little bit wimpy.
