Leeder Origins: Great American Bum (76* d) RE: Great American Bum 07 Nov 01

Here's a verse my father sang which is not included in, or is significantly different from, the sets above:

Sleeping beside the station, tra-la-la-la-la-la-lation,
That's a recommendation, hurrah, hurree, hurrum,
For we're three bums, three jolly good chums, we live like royal Turks;
We have good luck at bumming our chuck; God bless the man that works!

The latter two lines were his version of the chorus as well.

This is reconstructed from memory, by the way; I have my dad's song lyrics, but not handy, and this one may or may not be in it.

He also sang "I Was Born One Hundred Thousand Years Ago"; other versions I've come across use "About Ten Thousand".
