Sewer Song

We sing the song of the sewer 
Of the sewer we sing this song. 
Together we stand 
With shovels in hand 
To keep things floating along. 
I work in the sewer, 
It's a pretty 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 gotta know
How to float. 
I work in the sewer 
With a guy named Bruce.
We're in charge 
Of all the refuse. 
I go down first 
While he holds the lid. 
Gee, I'm telling you 
What a sweet kid. 
A fuuny thing happened 
To Bruce yesterday. 
The tide came up 
He got carried away. 
He ended up in Jersey. 
But that's O.K. now. 
'Cause that's where 
He lives anyhow. 
My father he worked 
In the sewer Uptown. 
I followed his footsteps 
And worked my way down. 
That's how I got started 
In this here industry. 
I just sort of fell into it. 
Sheesh, lucky me.
