Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Father got the sack from the Waterwor
I remember this one, too, from my old man. Only difference is:
"....Foreman Joe
Said he had to go...."

There was only one verse as I recall.

There's a cd available of music hall songs, recorded between 1912 and 1936, and there's a version available by Maidie Scott
