Thread Name: 'little' songs
Subject: RE: 'little' songs
I had a job outside a lunatic asylum
it was a good job breaking stones.
When all of a sudden, a head popped over the wall and said "good morning Mr Jones".

He said "how much a week, do you get for doing that"?
15 bob I cried and I've got a wife and seven little kids,
then he looked and me and sighed,

Come inside you silly bugger come in side,
You ought to have a bit more sense.
Working for a living! Take my tip.
You ought to act balmy and become a lunatic.
you get 3 meals, quite regular, and two new suits besides.
So if you've got a wife and seven little kids,
Come inside you silly bugger come inside.

This song was frequently recited by my Grandfather,
The late - William Tomkinson b1901 – d1986
Originally from Lancashire England
