GUEST,Jim Ward Lyr Req: I'm a Navvy by R.P.Weston & F.J.Barnes (22) RE: Lyr Req: I'm a Navvy by R.P.Weston & F.J.Barnes 09 Aug 05


Courtesy of Charles Keeping-

I'm a navvy, I'm a navvy,working on the line,
I get five and twenty bob a week and all me overtime,
Pease Pudding and gravy, ev'ry dinner time,
That's what a navvy gets for working on the line

I'm a navvy, I'm a navvy,working on the line,
Chopping up the worms and making one worm into nine,
Some jobs are rotten jobs and some jobs are fine,
When you're a navvy, you're a navvy, working on the line.

This is certainly in the style of Weston and Barnes and Tom Wootwell
