Thread Name: Lyr Req: Sam got a job on the railroad
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Sam got a job on the railroad
Sambo worked on a railway, a railway very fast
One day they said to Sambo "We'll make you grease the tracks".
Down came a runaway engine - now what do you think of that?
Sambo rolled up his shirtsleeves and tried to push it back.
Splat!

Chorus:-
Another little job for the undertaker
Another little job for the tombstone maker
In a local cemetery, on a tombstone, there you'll see
"Sambo - that's me"

Sambo had an aunty, an aunty very poor
One day she said to Sambo "I'll make you sweep the floor".
Sambo didn't like it and went upstairs to bed
Tried to climb the bannister and fell right on his head.
Bang!

Chorus

Sambo had an uncle, an uncle very rich
One day he said to Sambo "I'll give you seven and six".
Sambo, feeling thirsty, went to the local shop
Five lemonades and four ginger beers and then he went off pop.
Bang!

Chorus

At least that's how I remember it.
