The Bagman

It was on a Monday morning that the Bagman came to call,

He picked up a head he spotted lying bleeding in the hall,

He crossed the walking carpet and found arms and legs as well,

And the torso in the bedroom giving off a rotten smell;

 

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

Do do do do dooddle-ee do de do

 

Handfast in the bathroom, two other corpses lay,

Stiff as boards, or bored as stiffs in an almost collimate way,

The Bagman threw one over each shoulder and took them down the stairs,

And wondered where the fourth he'd find to end up with two pairs;

 

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

Do do do do dooddle-ee do de do

 

Humming (sub voce) as down to the cellar he went,

If you'd have heard him you'd have thought he was on pleasure bent,

But the Bagman is a professional, body, heart and soul,

So he quickly found the last one under a hundredweight of coal;

 

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

Do do do do dooddle-ee do de do
