You have taken far too much trouble over your opera. Here in England that is mere waste of time. What the English like is something that they can beat time to, something that hits them straight on the drum of the ear.
Well it's long overdue there/
ain't nothing better to do/
Now we are hipper we been thru the trip/
We can fly right on thru, there's nothing on earth we can do/
Fish or cut bait it's our future/
e're making all together now pull the chain!/
We don't want no pig brother scene
I would like to like to make one thing clear at the very outset and that is, when you speak of a train robbery, this involved no loss of train, merely what I like to call the contents of the train, which were pilfered. We haven't lost a train since 1946, I believe it was - the year of the great snows when we mislaid a small one.
