SONG OF THE SEWER. THE Lyrics and music by Art Carney, Matt Dubey and Harold Karr Art Carney with the Sid Feller Orchestra I work in the sewer; it's a very hard job. You know they don't hire just any old slob. You don't have to wear a tie or a coat ... You just have to know how to float. (Chorus) We sing the song of the sewer! Of the sewer we sing this song: Together we stand with shovel in hand To keep things rollin' along. I work down the manhole with a guy named Bruce, And we are in charge of all the refuse. He lets me go first while he holds the lid. I'm telling you, sheesh... what a sweet kid. (Chorus) We sing the song of the sewer! Of the sewer we sing this song: Together we stand with shovel in hand To keep things rollin' along. (Oo-oo Oo-oo Oo-oo-Oo-oo) A funny thing happened to Bruce yesterday ... The tide came along; he got carried away. He come out in Jersey, but it's okay now, 'Cause that's where he lives anyhow. (Chorus) We sing the song of the sewer! Of the sewer we sing this song: Together we stand with shovel in hand To keep things rollin' along. My father, he worked in the sewer Uptown. I followed his footsteps, and worked my way down. That's how I began in this here industry ... I just sort of fell into it. Sheesh, lucky me! (Chorus) We sing the song of the sewer! Of the sewer we sing this song: Together we stand with shovel in hand To keep things rollin' along. (Transcribed by Lou Rugani - The Music of the Stars (WLIP) - November 2011)
