Skipper Jack Lyr Req: Bricklayer's Lament (12) RE: Lyr Req: Bricklayer's Lament 17 Feb 09

The song was originally a wonderful story related by Gerard Hoffnung at The Oxford Union back in 1958 and recorded by the BBC.

Noel Murphy adapted the story into a song some time later. I am not sure who wrote this highly amusing piece?
