Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Father's Got the Sack from the Water Work
my grandfather sang this coninualy when i was small and i still find it ammusing, sad.
   
    father got the sack from the waterworks
    for smoking his little cherry briar
    foreman joe he said he'd have to go
    cos he might set the waterworks afire.

can anyone recal

    i remember as a tiny cid
    i had a fearful fright
    our house caught fire one night
    my face went chalky white
    we did stumble down the fire escape
    without the slightest fuss
    then the fireman came and turned
    his happy hose on us... etc.
