David. You are a horrid man. I have lots of things I should have been doing! But...
 
 
 
On the first day of Christmas my clubmates all watched me,
Misjudge the height of a tree.

On the second day of Christmas my clubmates all watched me,

Deadstick miles downwind
And misjudge the height of a tree.

On the third day of Christmas my clubmates all watched me,

Lose orientation
Deadstick miles downwind
And misjudge the height of a tree.


<snip/>

On the twelveth day of Christmas my clubmates all watched me,

Laugh at their misfortunes
Dowse myself with glow-fuel
Try to scrounge a glowplug
Do a cartwheel landing
Tip my chair o'er backwards
Drop sandwich in to cowpat
Smash my favourite thermos
Bring the wrong wings
Tip the nose on takeoff
Lose orientation
Deadstick miles downwind
And misjudge the height of a tree.

Hopefully the last verse will suffice:
 
On the twelfth day of Christmas,
my true love sent to me
Twelve fuel pumps pumping,
Eleven yards of piping,
Ten fuel tanks leaking,
Nine timings advancing,
Eight maidens a-waiting,
Seven snakes a-slipping,
Six kit pieces a-laying,
Five broken piston rings,
Four profane words,
Three big ends,
Two hurtling shoves,
And a parked plane in a pear tree!

(it was seven snakes a sliding but Olly beat me to that one!)|
