Black and viscous --- bound to cure blue lethargy
Tightrope-balanced payments need a small reprieve
in North Sea Oil
Hot-air balloon --- inflation soon will make you pay
But we'll be saved and what we crave
Prices boom in Aberdeen and London Town
before we are all nuclear --- the better way!
in North Sea Oil
