Subject: Lookin for a job
From: pete clansfolk@msn.com
Date: 02 Mar 97 - 04:50 PM

has anyone got the words for the following song, word something like chorus:-

I'm looking for a job with a sky high pay, three day week and a two hour day

Maybe it's because I'm inclined that way, but I never did like being idle.

Any help would be handy, (failing the words, anybody know if there's a job going with the above specs?)

cheers Pete clansfolk@msn.com

Pete,
Sorry, I don't know of a job like Matt McGinn's, but I do
have the words for the song!!

Chorus:
I'm looking for a job with a sky-high pay
A four day week and a two hour day
S'maybe it's because I'm inclined that way
But I never did like being idle!

V1
I don't want glory and I don't want fame
I left school with a modest aim
I went to the Labour Exchange for work
Here is what I sang to the wee broo clerk

V2
Now that, says he, is a rare wee song
To come frae a lad so big and strong
Through the door on the left and take this card
You can sing to the gaffer down in Harland's yard

V3
I sang it to the gaffer but he thought me daft
I've never even heard such a horse's laugh
He gathered around him all his men
And as one big choir, they sang then

V4
Their voices rang o'er the riverside
And it became the song of the Clyde
Its words were heard the whole world round
And it was known as the Clydeside Sound



This came from the book "McGinn of the Calton"

Enjoy!

Anne

Now did anyone work out the tune for this lovely song? Since I'm out of work, it would be worth singing on my part!

I came into this post wondering what kind of a job you were looking for, and who would be willing to hire right off the internet...
