You ask for chorus, Bill, and I will give you choir.

This late-recovered zinger was oft heard wafting down from old Scurvy's 
little flat in Tatwig Street:

        [/To be chaunted in the accents of Old Ron/ -- ed.]
        *
        The Eton Choir*

        There was the Vicar
        Pulling the wire
        There was the Verger
        Stoking the fire
        There was the Organ
        Playing higher and higher
        While I sang treble in the
        Eton Choir!

        ["/While he sang treble in the
        Eton Choir/" &c. &c. -- ed.]

Scobie lives.
