Jobsworth:

I heard Jeremy Taylor sing this song, among many other beaut songs, when he toured Australia in the 70s. I particulary loved this one - it could be the anthem of any working musician who has had to deal with entrenched Jobsworths (or anyone else who has tried to get sense and work out of people securely ensonced under their official hat or behind the official desk).

I have it on one or two tape recordings of his concerts but I have never bothered to type the words out, since I quickly memorised them. If needed, I could get around to typing them out, as it is a song that needs a bit of a revival just now. I haven't tried my hand at writing out tunes in ABC but we have a local guru, so perhaps I will look into this as an economical way to pass on dots.

Let me know and I will post the words - after Easter and our National Folk Festival, in Canberra.

regards,
