Chopper roars to his oldest friend
He says
Captain Smirnoff
Please save my weekend

The Captain's silent
On this occasion
So many times
He'd saved Chopppers bacon

Failing to plan
Is planning to fail
Pressure makes diamonds
Or coal if you fail
So dont you fail
The pressure's on

The deal is done
Going over the line
Chopper pleads
For a little time

But friends are short
When the goings tough
So he packs his bags
And goes on the run

Chopper smiles
At the golden one
He says
Daddy's home
To his only son

A warm embrace
And a silent word
Has Chopper learned
Only love is golden
