Both of these use the same picture, I am not sure which one I prefer:
(Actually, in the case of the D5 Trident the critical failure was in the design of the ejector system of the tube, not the missile, nor its launch. Nobody was injured in this instance.)
*EDIT* If I could find a picture I would swap the 'Friends Will Never Let You Forget' with an image of a train engine in a chip shop....
Lyrics by Dave Goulder:I'M THE MAN WHO PUT THE ENGINE IN THE CHIP SHOP
I started as a cleaner back in nineteen forty nine
I planned to spend me life just working up and down the line
Devoted to the company till the driver's seat was mine
I never thought that it would be me downfall
I was working on the night shift with nothing much to do
I sloped off out of the foreman's sight, well really, wouldn't you?
I came across a number four just waiting for the crew
And I clambered on the footplate like a driver
Chorus: I'm the man who put the engine in the chip shop
And wherever I go me legend follows me
But as I watch the trains go by and lean upon me brush
I know I've made me mark on history
She hadn't got much steam up so I filled her up with coal
Released the brake and opened up the 'reg' to make her roll
But she wouldn't budge an inch, and when I heard the foreman call
I left her where she was and ran for cover
The sun was just appearing when the shedman went his round
He was back inside a minute with a puzzled sort of frown
He said, "I've lost a number four; have you seen one around?"
And I nearly filled me trousers when he asked me
'Cos I'm the man who...
Well me stoking was impeccable; the steam had risen fast
With the regulator open she began to move at last
And a guard fell off his bicycle when he saw her rolling past
For he couldn't see a fireman or a driver
She took off down the main line going faster by the yard
The signalman responded to a phone call from the guard
Set the signals all at danger, then he cursed himself so hard
There was no-one on the footplate who could see them
I'm the man who...
She continued on her journey through the morning countryside
Collecting sets of crossing gates, she carried them with pride
Till at last they set the points to get the runaway inside
And she headed for the buffers at the station
The buffers never stood a chance, she wore them like a crown
A wooden fence, a footbridge and a telegraph pole went down
Then she took to the highway and went on towards the town
But she couldn't bring herself to pass the chip shop
I'm the man who...
She entered by the side door, and there she came to rest
They made her safe and then went off to find the guilty pest
It wasn't long before they tracked me down and I confessed
To being the man who put the engine in the chip shop
I'm the man who..
The Auld Grump, a good solid 2 die critical failure there....
