Tune: My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean


My father's a lavatory cleaner
He works both by day and by night
And when he comes home in the evening
He's covered all over in Shine
Up your buttons with Brasso
Its only three apence a tin
You can buy it or nick it from Woolworths
But I doubt if they'll have any in
Some say that he died of a fever
Some say that he dies of a fit
But I know what my father dies of
He died of the smell of the Shine
Up your buttons with Brasso
Its only three apence a tin
You can buy it or nick it from Woolworths
But I doubt if they'll have any in
Some say that he's buried in a graveyard
Som say that he's buried in a pit
But I know where my fathers buried
He's buried in six feet of Shine
Up your buttons with Brasso
Its only three apence a tin
You can buy it or nick it from Woolworths
But I doubt if they'll have any in
