Shipping Forecast
The Longest Johns Lyrics


And now the Shipping Forecast, issued by the Met Office,
On behalf of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency, at 1700 hours today.
North Utsire, South Utsire, Forties, Cromarty. Northwesterly 5 to 7,
Occasionally gale 8, backing southwesterly,
And decreasing 3 for a time. Rain later. Moderate, becoming good.
Humber, Shannon. Northeasterly 6. Good,
Growing steadily, becoming 7. Happy birthday.
Tyne, Thames, Forth. Little bit, muchly.
32 long, size 8, becoming smart later.
Dogger, Fisher, Dover. I hardly knew her.
Viking. Arriving soon, leaving later with your wife.
Fair Isle, Faeroes, Pyramid, Sphinx.
Biscay, Fastnet, Dialup, Broadband.
Lundy, Mardi, Mercredi. Plymouth? No.
German Bight. Watch out for that.
Portland, FitzRoy. Moving forward, 22 yards. Touchdown.
Irish Sea, Irish stew, Baileys, Hebrides.
Rockall, Sole. One fish, two fish. Red fish, blue fish.
Trafalgar. Rectangular, becoming square.
And finally, Longest Johns.
Starting strong, 7 or 8, becoming not so poor, then good.
That was the Shipping Forecast for
1700 hours, Wednesday, 18th of August.
