Translation:

 The Battle of
 El Mazuco


Words invented on 14.08.1985.
(To the tune of “John Brown’s body”.)

They reached the top of a pot
which was 80 metres deep

Chorus:

And he ain’t going to cave no more.

Glory, Glory, what a hell of a way to die,

Glory, Glory, what a hell of a way to die,

Glory, Glory, what a hell of a way to die!

And he ain’t going to cave no more.

The leader was the last to climb
the first to hit the ground

Chorus

At first he landed on a ledge
but bounced right off again

Chorus

Another 50 feet below
his carbide lamp blew out

Chorus

At 100 feet he grabbed the rope
but couldn’t hold on tight

Chorus

The scraped him off a stalagmite
and send him home to mum

Chorus, dirge-like
