I am the very model

to the tune of 'A modern major general'
I am the very model of a modern summer Harrier,
I sail in lots of sailing boats which in comfort can carry yer.
The lack of winds upon the Broads is certainly no barrier,
For I'm the very model of a modern summer Harrier.

Our shooting of the bridges: Potter, Ludham, is dramatical,
When skipper Delbert takes the helm, beware - he is fanatical.
And taught by Andy Reid we've learnt sailing skills mathematical.
But when he falls into the the Broads the crew are all ecstatical.

When coming down the river Ant we tack with such a style
We send the cruisers scattering; they cannot stand the trial.
The fishermen they see us coming grab their rods - but we just wave and smile
For we're just perfect models of modern summer Harriers.

And every day you see I'm getting redder and bedraggelder,
When I get home, my friends will say I've gotten even madderer,
But I'll be back next year, you mustn't let that worry - yer,
For I'm the very model of the modern summer Harrier.
