— Glyn singing one of his classic songs, from TFSR days, a plea for a wood-burning stove. View here (via YouTube):

JUST A WOODBURNING STOVE
I was down at Netley Marsh / Where the working conditions are harsh / Our fingers that night turned white – and then a terrible mauve
We want a woodburning stove / A woodburning stove / Our feet are frozen / So we’re propos’n a stove!
Now the tools workshop out back / Is huge, icy and black / We waited for heat to arrive /But it never arrove
So we want a stove / A woodburning stove / Our feet are frozen / So we’re propos’n a stove!
It’s fifteen degrees below / The tools are ready to go / To a co-operative member of Pemba / The land of the clove
Now we want a stove / A woodburning stove / Our feet are frozen / So we’re propos’n a stove…
Just a woodburning stove!

— Glyn singing (to the tune of “Any old iron”) his lyrics “Any old tools, any old tools, Tools for Self Reliance”. View here.

ANY OLD TOOLS
Any old tools! Any old tools! Tools For Self Reliance / Saws we seize, pliers if you please / We clean ’em and we mend ’em and we send ’em overseas
Once out there, the people share and to poverty they show defiance / Are you with us in the struggle for a fairer world? / A people’s alliance
Tools for Tanzania / What a great idea! / Every village clamours / For a dozen hammers / Chisels, bits and braces / All to far-off places /Share some of your vices –
With US!
