Oh My Papa, NewsRevue Lyric, 5 June 1995

The Maxwell trial. Big news in 1995. Not sure if this lyric was used, but for sure the story featured in the show.

“OH MY ” – PAPA
(To the Tune of “Oh My Papa”)

And now we go over to the Old Bailey, where Ian and Kevin Maxwell are about to sing the case for the defence.

VERSE 1

Oh my papa, to me he was so wonderful,
Oh my papa, Bob Maxwell was his name;
No one could be, so bent and so corruptible,
Oh my papa, he’s left his folks with shame.

MIDDLE EIGHT

Gone are the days,
When he would rape his pension funds,
And with a smile,
He’d change his bucks to bad debts.

VERSE 2

Oh my papa, so fat and so detestable,
Always spoke loud and treated staff like slaves;
Oh my papa, he made our lives so comfortable,
Here in the dock I wish he’d gone away.

MIDDLE EIGHT 2

Gone are the days,
When he would take me on his yacht,
With just one leap,
He dumped his sons up shit creek.

VERSE 3

Oh my papa to pensioners so criminal,
I’m in my cell while he burns deep in hell;
Oh my papa, oh my papa.

Here is Eddie Fisher singing Oh My Papa:
