Subject: Lyr Req: Father got the sack from the Waterworks
Busily thinking about "folksinger" reminded me of one of the songs my late father used to sing. Obviously a music-hall song, but hey, it (or at least the bit I remember) was indeed handed down to me by the folk process. No hits on "Waterworks" in DT.

"Father got the sack from the waterworks
For smoking his little cherry briar
The foreman, Joe
Told him he must go
'Cos he might set the waterworks on fire".

Anyone got the rest?
