Thread Name: Lyr Req: Sam got a job on the railroad
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Sam got a job on the railroad
I heard the song as

Samuel had an uncle, an uncle very rich.
One day he said to Samuel, "I'll give you two and six."
Samuel feeling thirsty, went to a local shop.
Ten lemonades and ten ginger beers, and then he went off, pop!

CHORUS: Bang....
More work for the undertaker,
Another little job for the tombstone maker.
In the local cemetery, on the tombstone you will see:
"Samuel thats me."

Samuel had an auntie, an auntie very poor.
One day she said to Samuel, "Get down and scrub that floor."
Samuel didn't want to, he went upstairs to bed.
He slid back down the banister, fell down on his head.

CHORUS: Bang.....
More work for the undertaker
Another little job for the tombstone maker
In the local cemetery, on his tombstone you will see
Samuel, thats me

Samuel joined the railway, in a green and purple coat,
He tried to clean the railway lines with a piece of mouldy soap.
He saw an engine coming, he stood right in it's track.
He rolled up his sleeves and slapped his knees,
and pushed the engine back.

CHORUS:Bang.....
More work for the undertaker
Another little job for the tombstone maker
In the local cemetery, on his tombstone you will see
Samuel, thats me
