  • Song Lyrics:
    'Twas on a Monday morning, the gas man came to call
    The gas tap wouldn't turn, I wasn't getting gas at all
    He tore out all the skirting-boards to try and find the main
    And I had to call a carpenter to put them back again.

    Oh, it all makes work for the working man to do.

    'Twas on a Tuesday morning the carpenter came 'round
    He hammered and he chiseled and he said, "Look what I've found,
    "Your joists are full of dry-rot, but I'll put them all to rights."
    Then he nailed right through a cable, and out went all the lights.

    Oh, it all makes work for the working man to do.

    'Twas on a Wednesday morning, the electrician came
    He called me "Mr Saunderson" which isn't quite me name
    He couldn't reach the fuse-box without standing on a bin
    And his foot went through a window, so I called the glazier in.

    Oh, it all makes work for the working man to do.

    'Twas on a Thursday morning, the glazier came along
    With his blow-torch, and his putty, and his merry gla-a-zier's song
    He put another pane in, it took no time at all,
    But I had to get a painter in to come and paint the wall.

    Oh, it all makes work for the working man to do.

    'Twas on a Friday morning, the painter made a start
    With undercoats and overcoats; he painted every part
    Every nook and every cranny, but I found when he had gone...
    He'd painted over the gas tap, and I couldn't turn it on.

    Oh, it all makes work for the working man to do.

    On Saturday and Sunday, the do no work at all,
    So 'twas on the Monday morning, that the gas-man came to call.
    (Shalom)
