MuddleC Lyr Req: It's Roll on My Time, Boys (Shep Woolley) (27) Lyr Add: ROLL ON ME TIME (from Shep Woolley) 24 Apr 08

>>A couple of corrections from an ex-Petty Officer Radio Electrical Artificer (Air)....... a Tiffy


And it's roll on me time boys, roll on me time
This is my last trip on the Grey funnel line
So I'll say farewell to, the wind and the brine
And sing you a song called 'Roll on me Time'

Well first we've got 'Stokers', what work down below
They give us fresh water and they make the ship go
Well the ship's broken down boys, don't that sound fine
But in the hot tap there's diesel, in the cold one brown slime


And next we got Tiffy's, a cool bunch are these
If you want to be one, then you'll need G.C.E.'s
but to get G.C.E.'s boys, you'll need a brain in your head
It's amazing how much work they can do from a bed


And down there in Vernon they heard the bell ring
They do demolitions and they listen for pings
But the Sonarmen too boys, now are wearing a frown
For what can they ping now the 'Criterion's' down


And next we've got RP's with hands on their hips
With chinagraph pencils and puckered up lips
Well they'll get us there boys, what ever the cost
Well where are we pilot?, we're bloody well lost


And there stands the G.I., so tall and so proud
His voice never made sense but God, was it loud
Well now the old G.I. is all dead and gone
They've give him his brains back and christened him 'POM'.


Well me time it has rolled now, all the times that I had
Sometimes they've been happy, sometimes they've been bad
But I'll say farewell now and drink your health with me wine
and hope that'll you'll join me in 'Roll on me time'
