Thread Name: Lyr Req: Five Young Apprentices (Rolf Harris)
Subject: Lyr Rec: 12 Young Apprentices
I remember a little of this song from back in the early 60s, it's a counting down song in which, despite dire warnings from the foreman, each of the young apprentices (this being the days before elfin safety) dies in a gruesome industrial accident.

Google has failed me for the lyrics, anyone else remember it?

"and nobody knows where the other one went, no, no, nobody knows"
