Subject: RE: songs about building boats/ships?
Anybody heard The Diagonal Steam Trap, Crawford Howard?
Don't know it all, but it starts,
They built a big ship down at Harland's,
It was built for to sell to the Turks.
And they got all the Yard's chief designers,
To design all the engines and works.

Quite long,quite funny about a fitter who outsmarts the "Hats".
