GUEST,Peter Lyr Req: More Work for the Undertaker (F W Leigh) (53* d) RE: Lyr Req: More Work for the Undertaker (F W Leigh) 23 May 15


The version we used to sing about 1945 onwards

Sambo had an auntie, an auntie very poor,
One day she said to Sambo, "Get down and scrub the floor."
Now Sambo didn't like it, he went upstairs to bed,
He tried to climb the bannisters and fell down on his head his head!

Bang!

More work for the undertaker,
Jolly good stuff for the tombstone maker,
Off to the local cemetery, on a tombstone you will see;
"Sambo that's me."

Sambo had an uncle, an uncle very rich,
One day he said to Sambo, "I'll give you two-and-six."
Sambo feeling thirsty, went into a shop;
Ten Ginger Beers and ten lemonades
And Sambo went off, Pop!

Bang!

More work for the undertaker,
Jolly good stuff for the tombstone maker,
Off to the local cemetery, on a tombstone you will see;
"Sambo that's me."

Sambo had a sister, a sister very thin.
One day she said to Sambo, "I'll prick you with a pin."
Sambo didn't like it, 'cause he was very fat,
And when she pricked him with a pin he went off bang like that

Bang!

More work for the undertaker,
Jolly good stuff for the tombstone maker,
Off to the local cemetery, on a tombstone you will see;
"Sambo that's me."

Sambo went to work one day without his overcoat
He tried to scrub the railway line with a mouldy bar of soap
Along came an express train, roaring down the track
and what do you think poor Sambo did, he tried to push it back

Bang!

More work for the undertaker,
Jolly good stuff for the tombstone maker,
Off to the local cemetery, on a tombstone you will see;
"Sambo that's me."
