AT LAST I'VE SEEN THE LIGHT!
We shall not run, nor even walk fast -
We've seen all the engines they've cut in the past -
The day has arrived, it's almost too late
Tomorrow you may forget the guy that was once your mate.
We'll slow down at once, we won't run for a switch -
Or the Company will find, you too they can ditch -
We'll shove every car, and test all the brakes -
And slow down much more when we see pretty snow flakes -
We'll value our limbs, avoid all gambles
We won't foul any switches, and if the lamp disappears -
We'll put on the brakes, and stall all the gears -
If the targets are out, we'll walk down and check -
Because days out of service are a pain in the neck -
We'll tie up the job when our mate has to go for a shit -
We won't take the engine if the bell doesn't ring -
We'll call the maintainer to fix everything -
If I've got no job tomorrow, and tomorrow is soon -
There'll be only one man to blame -
it's me, that's whom.
