This little ditty, recorded by Foster and Allen, then by
Brendan Shine, is simply called "The Blind"
If ever you go on a railway train,
Well, don't look out of the window pane,
For I was in the carriage once and did it to my regret.
This is what happened to me:
Well, this old devil he said to me,
"Would you look out the window and see if the train is coming yet?"
So I looked out of the window.
Me hat did blow away.
Then I leaned out to get it
In an idiotic way.
Me pants were tight and they bursted.
The passenger sat behind
Said, "I see those little short shorts you've got.
You'd better pull down the blind".
The other night at 12 o'clock
I was given a hell of a shock
When out the back yard clearly
I heard a terrible row.
Me wife said, "It's a German band
Coming to drive us off the land."
Then I looked out the window
And I heard a faint "Meow, meow."
Yes, I looked out of the window
And saw a cat below.
He was making quare arrangements
With the ginger cat next door.
I drownded him with water.
Me wife "You're unkind!
You did it yourself when you were young.
You better pull down the blind!"
We live in a narrow street.
Across the road is just eight feet.
When I look out the window,
I see into the house inside.
So I looked out of the window
And saw a room with light,
And there I saw a big fat dame
Retiring for the night.
First she pulled down her knickers,
And then she changed her mind.
She was pullin' 'em up and pullin' 'em down
And forgot to pull down the blind!
