THE GASMAN COMETH (Flanders / Swann) Flanders & Swann - 1953 'Twas on the 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 the carpenterto put them back again. Oh, it all makes work for the working men to do. 'Twas on the Tuesday morning. the Carpenter came round. He hammered, and he chiselled, 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 men to do. 'Twas on the Wednesday morning the Electrician came. He called me 'Mister Sanderson', which isn't quite my name. He couldn't reach the fuse box without standing on the bin, And his boot went thru a window, so I called a glazier in. Oh, it all makes work for the working men to do. 'Twas on the Thursday morning the Glazier came round, With his blowtorch and his putty and his merry glazier sound. He put another pane in - it took no time at all - Then I had to get a painter in to come and paint the wall. Oh, it all makes work for the working men to do. 'Twas on the Friday morning the Painter made a start. With undercoats, and overcoats, he painted every part, Every nook and 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 men to do. On Saturday and Sunday they do no work at all, So it was on the Monday morning that the Gas man came to call.
