A thoroughly English shipwreck...

The ship went down,
The tea cups went up,
"Chin - chin" was uttered on that warm golden beach,
No iceberg had sunk this ship,
No screams for help,
No, No, No  
This is a thoroughly English shipwreck.

Tea cakes and cucumber sandwiches were the order of the day,
Finger food and checkered blankets all laid near the bay,
Water spurted up and blew out all the port holes,
The captain went down with the ship,
only to return 5 minutes later refreshed from his dip.
