Andy Robinson begins the second verse of his catchy rugby club ditty 'Singing For My Supper' this weekend under more pressure than anyone else in English sport.
He needs to turn in a pretty convincing performance, too, because the first stanza wasn't particularly easy on the ear.
Victories over the combined might of Canada, Scotland and Italy were well within his range but his team's failure to hit any of the higher notes meant the 2004-05 Red Rose season was something of a cacophony.

A languid South Africa were dealt with this time last year, but Australia and France both breached Fortress Twickenham and Wales and Ireland easily repelled their challenge in the Six Nations.
It's not quite Judgment Month, but imagine the catcalls if at least two of the three autumn internationals do not provide something more tuneful than the British Lions' anthem Shower of Four.
The Wallabies are Robinson's first opponents - the weakest of the Tri-Nations teams, who have not won for seven matches and were beaten 26-16 in France last weekend.
They come to HQ on Saturday looking to emulate last season's two-point victory in which England ended the game without a recognised kicker after Robinson decided to end Henry Paul's international career 20 minutes into the game.
Defeat is simply not an option. Robinson needs a major scalp to show his employers before the spring and, with New Zealand and Samoa, to follow it means his first opportunity will be his best. The All Blacks will be too strong and a victory over Samoa is rather too likely to be considered impressive.
With that in mind, he has once more made interesting selections in his starting line-up but this time, he has to ensure he has the courage of his convictions.
For the first time since succeeding Clive Woodward, he has picked men on form rather than reputation and, for that reason, he should encourage his men to throw off the innate conservatism that has shackled previous England teams.
The way he handled Paul suggested a lack of faith in his original selection. The rugby league convert is an infuriating talent but a talent nonetheless and, properly harnessed, he could have been the midfield game-breaker England have lacked since Jeremy Guscott.
The centre was unceremoniously hauled off the pitch after a couple of missed tackles and has not seen the light of day since. Why bother choosing him in the first place?
The same can be asked of his next selection, Mathew Tait. The teenager from Newcastle who got chucked around like a rag-doll when England lost to Wales. It took him months to recover.
This time, Robinson has gone for Mike Tindall and Jamie Noon in the centre - two solid custodians - but has commendably persevered with Charlie Hodgson at flyhalf. The Sale stand-off has his critics who argue, with good reason, that his kicking from hand and floor is not up to Test standard.
But he is the most naturally creative outside-half in the country, Jonny Wilkinson included, and he showed during the British Lions tour that he has the ability to win games, as well as lose them.
So here's to you Mr Robinson, recognise the fact that in Ben Cohen, Mark Cueto and Pat Sanderson you have three of the hottest men in the Premiership and tell them to go out and win the match, instead of asking them to make sure they don't lose it.
