"When I, good friends, was called to the bar,
I'd an appetite fresh and hearty,
But I was, as most young barristers are,
An impecunious party.
I'd a swallowtail coat of beautiful blue,
And a brief I'd bought off a booby,
And a couple shirts, and a collar or two,
And a ring that looked like a ruby."
(the inimitable Gilbert and Sullivan, from "Trial by Jury"; you can see the full lyrics and the video clip of the song here, at my journal: http://med-cat.livejournal.com/630687.html
