To Southampton I went for SUA
No one else was going, so overnight I did not stay
I rang in a scratch band with the CUG and Matt Child
They let us ring early so everyone smiled
The scratch bands came second: Oxford and Bristol won,
The Ceilidh was tiring, but lots of fun
We rang the Hartley 12 at midnight, and a human pyramid was built
We managed 5 levels before it started to tilt
And so next year if more UL turn up
I hope that we might win the cup
Friends, ringing, drinking – what’s not to like?
And it’s in Oxford – not such a long hike!
