GUEST,Jim I Lyr Req: The Railway Porter (17) RE: Lyr Req: The Railway Porter 23 Feb 06

I just picked this up recently so I'm not certain of it

Railway Porter Song, The

Well, I am a railway porter
And my name is Willie Wee,
I'm the maist important person
Ye could ever hope to see,
I'm in charge of every station,
Fae Dundonell tae Dundee,
And I'm only here to tell ye
Where ye change for.

Ye change fer Auchtermuchty,
Tilly or Tuchty;
Crieff or Cullercoats
Fife or John o' Groats,
Beecham's pills and Quaker Oats:
Ye change for Ecclefechan, Aberdeen,
And all the stations in atween.
Unless ye want tae go tae Tobermory.

Ye should see me hurl ma barrow,
Ye should see me sweep the flair,
If there's no a tip forthcoming
Ye should hear me curse and swear,
When a train comes in the station,
Ma heid flies in the air,
And I cry wi' all ma might
"You've got to change here."

Well, one day the Royal Train drew in,
My heart was full of pride,
I keeked in through the windae,
And whae d'ye think I spied?
It was His Majesty ! King George - himsell;
The Queen was by his side.
So I cried, wi' all ma might
Ye've got to change here.
