I am the Ayatollah

Oh I am the Ayatollah, I’m the Leader of Iran
I looked outside my mosque one day, and saw a hashing band
They said they were from Cheltenham, and they said they’d lost their way
They asked me if I’d join them and become the new R.A.

Well I am the Ayatollah, but I didn’t want them here
They wouldn’t join my army and they kept demanding beer
They wouldn’t do what they were told, they hashed and ran amok
They caused a revolution, and they did’nt give a "F***"

 

Chorus 

 

Cheltenham Hashers, We’re Cheltenham Hashers
Winter, Summer, Spring and Autumn too
Cheltenham Hashers, We’re Cheltenham Hashers
We are the finest hash you’ll ever view

 

We’re Cheltenham Hash, we’ll have a bash, at any trail you know
We’ll run across your deserts and we’ll run across your snow
There’s more of us than China, we stretch out across the Land
We are the Cheltenham Hashers, we’re a Happy Hashing band

 

 

Chorus

Cheltenham Hashers, We’re Cheltenham Hashers
Winter, Summer, Spring and Autumn too
Cheltenham Hashers, We’re Cheltenham Hashers
We are the finest hash you’ll ever view
