  • Song Lyrics:
    Now here's a little story
    To tell it is a must
    About an unsung hero
    That moves away your dust.

    Some people make a fortune,
    Others earn a mint;
    My old man don't earn much:
    In fact he's flippin' skint.

    Oh, my old man's a dustman,
    He wears a dustman's hat,
    He wears cor-blimey trousers
    And he lives in a council flat.
    He looks a proper nana
    In his great big hobnail boots,
    He's got such a job to pull them up
    That he calls 'em daisy roots.

    Some folks give tips at Christmas,
    And some of them forget,
    So when he picks their bins up
    He spills some on the step.
    Now one old man got nasty
    And to the council wrote,
    Next time my old man went round there
    He punched him up the throat.

    Oh, my old man's a dustman,
    He wears a dustman's hat,
    He wears cor-blimey trousers
    And he lives in a council flat.

    Lonnie: I say, I say, Les.
    Les: Yes?
    Lonnie: I, er, I found a police dog in my dustbin.
    Les: Well, how do you do know he's a police dog?
    Lonnie: He had a policeman with him.

    Though my old man's a dustman,
    He's got an 'eart of gold,
    He got married recently
    Though he's eighty-six years old.
    We said, "'Ere, hang on, Dad,
    You're getting past your prime";
    He said, "Well, when you get to my age
    It helps to pass the time."

    Oi! My old man's a dustman,
    He wears a dustman's hat,
    He wears cor-blimey trousers
    And he lives in a council flat.

    Lonnie: I say, I say, I say!
    Les: Huh?
    Lonnie: My dustbin's full of lilies.
    Les: Well, throw 'em away then!
    Lonnie: I can't: Lily's wearing them.

    Now one day whilst in a hurry,
    He missed a lady's bin:
    He hadn't gone but a few yards
    When she chased after him.
    "What game do you think you're playing?"
    She cried right from the 'eart,
    "You've missed me, am I too late?"
    "No, jump up on the cart!"

    Oi! My old man's a dustman,
    He wears a dustman's hat,
    He wears cor-blimey trousers
    And he lives in a council flat.

    Lonnie: I say, I say, I say!
    Les: Not you again!
    Lonnie: My dustbin's absolutely full with toadstools.
    Les: How do you know it's full?
    Lonnie: 'Cos there's not mushroom inside.

    He found a tiger's head one day
    Nailed to a piece of wood
    The tiger looked like miserable,
    But I suppose he should.
    Just then from out a window
    A voice began to wail,
    It said, "Oi! Where's me tiger's head?"
    "Four foot from his tail."

    Oh, my old man's a dustman,
    He wears a dustman's hat,
    He wears cor-blimey trousers
    And he lives in a council flat.
    Next time you see a dustman
    Looking all pale and sad,
    Don't kick him in the dustbin:
    It might be my old dad.
