RINGING ON THE ENGINE BELL (Ted Dicks / Myles Rudge) Bernard Cribbens - 1964 Ooh, down the pole and off we go Where the bloomin' fire is I don't know I'm a-ringin' on the engine bell And like as not I've forgotten me 'elmet Half the lads, they're left behind Thay'll 'ave to take a taxi, but I don't mind I'm a-ringin' on the engine bell And 'onkin' on me 'orn as well There's music in the clang of it Once you get the hang of it Very rewardin'! A dirty great bus comes much too near 'E does his little nut, but I don't 'ear For I'm a-ringin' on the engine bell And 'onkin' on me 'ooter Swearin' at a scooter, get out of it! Oh, I don't care if it's no right turn Gotta get there while the fire's still burnin' That's why I'm ding-dong-dingin' this bell Now, I'm two wheels around the bend Talk about a strain on my big end I'm a-ringin' on the engine bell Gone all numb from me bum to me elbow One-way streets the wrong way round Another traffic warden hits the ground I'm ringin' on the engine bell And nearly takin' orf as well There's rapture in the ring of it Once you get the swing of it Oi! give us an encore Whatd'ya know, mate, here we are A-ready with the hosepipe, right mate, ta I'm ringin' on the engine bell But the reason we were sent for (Help!) Isn't what we went for, locked in the what? We gets her out and takes her name Back we go to the place we came from And I must admit it's just as well 'Cause I was all done in from ding-dong Ding-dong-a-dingin' this bell SPOKEN: I said to Fred afterwards, I said "I've gone all deaf in my left ear'ole, Fred". And Fred said "It serves you bloomin' right". You see, that's the trouble with Fred, he's got no thought for others. Self! Self! Self! That's Fred all over. Still, I'll say this for him, he's very good on the 'osepipe!
