Thread Name: Chords Req: Jobsworth (Jeremy Taylor)
Subject: RE: JOBSWORTH- CHORDS (Jeremy Taylor)
I'm with Dave Bryant on this. I first heard the song (Taylor singing it) around 1968 and the first separate references I heard to "jobsworths" were subsequent to that and were derived from the song. I'd be interested to see the evidence before accepting any claims to the contrary.
