Thread Name: Lyr Req: Sam got a job on the railroad
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Sam got a job on the railroad
We changed the name from Sambo to Jimbo, but the version I know is...

Jimbo had an auntie,
An auntie very poor,
One day she said to Jimbo
'I'll make you scrub the floor'
Jimbo didn't like it
He went upstairs to bed
He tried to climb the bannister
And fell down on his head

Bang!
More work for the undertaker
'nother little job for the tombstone maker
Off to the local cemetery
On his tombstone you will see
Jimbo R.I.P

Jimbo had an uncle
An uncle very rich
One day he said to Jimbo
'I'll give you four and six'
Jimbo was delighted
He went off to the shops
10 lemonade and 10 ginger beers
And then he went off pop

Bang!
More work for the undertaker
'nother little job for the tombstone maker
Off to the local cemetery
On his tombstone you will see
Jimbo R.I.P

Jimbo was a naughty boy
For him there was no hope
He tried to scrub the railway line
With a bar of rusty soap
Along came a runaway engine
Along the railway track
Jimbo rolled his shirt sleeves up
And tried to push it back

Bang!
More work for the undertaker
'nother little job for the tombstone maker
Off to the local cemetery
On his tombstone you will see
Jimbo R.I.P
