It is really something to sing and dance about.
Dig up those old bones and get them dancing!

but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Knyvett 2: Knyvet of Ashwellthorpe, Knyvet of Berners, Knyvett of Buckenham, Knyvett of Denver
Sir Edmund Knyvett of Buckenham a 1547 BEB1844 reports that Sir Philip, 1st Bart, was son of Sir Edmund's son Sir Thomas but BE1883 suggests that the 1st Bart was great-grandson of Sir Edmund. We follow BEB1844, as it names the/an intervening generation as Sir Thomas, but note that there may be a missing generation here.
