    History Club Brain Teaser

    My place of birth lies far away
    From where I make my home today
    Where Unknown jack once made his name,
    11 'ladies' brought him fame,

    Of names I have had 3 or 4,
    But my current one defines me more
    My brother marks time for a nation's queens
    Though my sisters sing of fruit it seems

    Namesakes I have of many creeds
    One went to space on a god of speed
    On his return a watery home
    A locker owned by davy jones

    When I reflect upon my past
    I am ashamed to say I cracked
    Two Johns came to my aid that time
    But then I cracked a second time

    When better I sang but sounded wrong
    But, well again I then gave song
    Philip wrote a song for me
    Which then was used by Monty P

    When used with letters I proclaim
    That even old I'll work the same
    I can't be beaten, for you I'll stick
    Do you know my name? or are you licked?
