And ex King Phillip grunt "Morbleu!" &nbsp; &nbsp; Here goes to raise a shout or two For Brummy. The primest whip, that leaves our town-- No matter whether up or down-- He's just the chap to do things brown-- Our Brummy. When first I went my seat to book, Whose jolly phiz and waggish look My right good-will and fancy took? &nbsp; Why Brummy's. Who drove me off in flanking style, Nor let me feel a tedious mile, His jokes did so the time beguile? Why Brummy. When piercing through the haze of morn, With prancing, smoking unicorn, Who'll rouse one with the bugle horn Like Brummy? &nbsp; Or where's the whip in all the land, &nbsp; With four prime, spanking tits in hand, Who keeps them under more command Than Brummy? &nbsp; Between his fingers and his thumb, The ribbands are the same to Brum, As jugglers at the "ribband-s...
