Three cavers sang at the College gate
They sang so loud and they sang so flat.
A student sat in the library,
Put down her pen and said 'Bugger that'!

And she's plucked off her floral print gown,
A-bought from Laura Ashley-oh!
And she's gone down to St. John's Bar,
To get pissed with the Yellow Van Speleos.

She's hocked her pearls for a second-hand wetsuit
And a pair of Dunlop wellies-oh!
And she's gone off to Bull Pot Farm,
Along with the Yellow Van Speleos.

'Oh bring to me my E-type Jag,
And fill it up with petrol-oh!
For I must leave and seek Genevieve,
Who has gone with the Yellow Van Speleos.'

Oh he drove fast and he drove slow,
He drove past Charnock Richard-oh!
Until he came to Junction 34,
And caught up with the Yellow Van Speleos.

'What made you leave the Hunt Ball set,
And beagles starting from Christchurch-oh!
What made you leave your well-heeled lord,
To go off with the Yellow Van Speleos?'

'What care I for the Hunt Ball set,
What care I for your beagles-oh!
What care I for my well-heeled lord,
For I'm off with the Yellow Van Speleos!'

'Last night you slept in a narrow college bed,
And the scout came in so early-oh!
Tonight you'll sleep at Bull Pot Farm,
Along with the Yellow Van Speleos.

'What care I for my narrow college bed,
With the scout coming in so early-oh!
For tonight I'11 sleep at Bull Pot Farm,
Along with the Yellow Van Speleos!'
