Subject: RE: Songs celebrating the working man/ woman
Someone asked some time ago (but I didn't see an answer), Anyone got the words to the theme of the Charie Drake tv series "The Worker" ? Something along the lines of

Well I gets up in the morning when it's ---- O clock
Strong as a heffalump, steady as a rock,
With a nice cup of tea, a little round of toast
I do the best I can,
Still I'm only doing what a bloke should do,
'Cos I'm only a working man

Well I gets to work each morning when the clock strikes Eight,
I'm always punctual, never ever late....

The above from memory, and I would love to see the whole thing, if anyone has it.

Also suitable, and always good for a laugh, Flanders & Swann's "The Gasman Cometh"
