I don't know what the song's actually supposed to be called, so if anyone knows could they please change the article's title?

Saw this on a Thatcher memorial prog. It's not based on the Major General's song from Pirates of Penzance, but on a trio patter song from Ruddigore. Confusion probably arising from a modern production of Pirates, which imported it as a trio for three Pirates' characters. As they say in Private Eye, I really must get out more.220.127.116.11 09:22, April 14, 2013 (UTC)
18.104.22.168 is correct. I have corrected the heading, but the title needs changing. The Major General's song is a different tune and a song of boasting, rather than the self-deprecation of "My Eyes Are Fully Open". 22.214.171.124 14:20, November 4, 2014 (UTC)
