The Bagman

'Twas on a Tuesday morning that the Bagman came to see,

Just what repugnant fruit there could be, growing on the tree,

Turning in the breeze he saw an awesomesaucey bag,

He cut it down and tumbled out a filleted aged hag;

 

(Chorus) And it all makes work that the Bagman has to do,

Do do do do doodle-oo do de do

 

Looking round the corner in an unprepossessing yard,

He saw a barrel standing where the ground was very hard,

The darkness round the bottom endit surely wasn't mud

He opened the top and peered inside a barrel full of blood!

 

(Chorus) And it all makes work that the Bagman has to do,

Do do do do doodle-oo do de do

 

"Five years this blood has been in here, it has a lustrum tang,"

The Bagman knows it very well, he's never, ever wrang,

And from the blood he fished a body and laid it on the ground,

A bloodless, lifeless, love-lorn lad in his own red blood been drowned;

 

(Chorus) And it all makes work that the Bagman has to do,

Do do do do doodle-oo do de do

 

Behind a door, he knows, full well, the sight he's going to see,

A body with it's head blown off while standing for a pee,

It crumples down about the pan, it's bowels evacuate,

And no-one but the Bagman will approach it in this state!

 

(Chorus) And it all makes work that the Bagman has to do,

Do do do do doodle-oo do de do
