Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Father's Got the Sack from the Water Work
my grandfather sang this coninualy when i was small and i still find it ammusing, sad.
father got the sack from the waterworks
for smoking his little cherry briar
foreman joe he said he'd have to go
cos he might set the waterworks afire.
can anyone recal
i remember as a tiny cid
i had a fearful fright
our house caught fire one night
my face went chalky white
we did stumble down the fire escape
without the slightest fuss
then the fireman came and turned
his happy hose on us... etc.
