    Chicken on a Raft


    Link

    Lyrics:
    Code:
    Skipper's in the wardroom drinking gin, (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    I don't mind knocking but I ain't going in, (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    'Jimmy's' laughing like a drain, (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    Been looking at m' 'comic cuts' again. (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    
    Chorus:
    Chicken on a raft on a Monday morning, oh what a terrible sight to see,
    'Dabtoes' for'd and the Dustmen aft, sitting there picking at a 'chicken on a raft'.
    Hey -oh, chicken on a raft, Oy -oh, chicken on a raft.
    Hey -oh, chicken on a raft, Oy -oh, chicken on a raft.
    
    They gave me the Middle and the Forenoon too, (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    And now I'm pulling in the whaler's crew, (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    Seagulls wheeling overhead, (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    I ought to be 'flogging' in a feather bed. (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    
    I had a little girl in 'Donny B', (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    And oh, she made a fool of me, (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    Her heart was like a Pusser's shower, (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    From hot to cold in a quarter of an hour. (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    
    An Amazon girl lives in Dumfries, (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    She only has kids in twos and threes, (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    Her sister lives in Maryhill, (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    She says she won't but I think she will. (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    
    We kissed goodbye on the midnight bus, (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    She didn't cry, she didn't fuss, (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    Am I the man that she loves best? (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    Or am I just a cuckoo in another man's nest? (Hey -oh, chicken on a raft)
    What does it mean?
    Code:
    The song was wrote by Cyril Tawney when he was in the Navy.Chicken on a raft is poached eggs on toast wich was a very common breakfast in the army.
    Jimmy = 1st lieutenant
    Dabtoes = seamen
    Dustmen = engine room specialist / So named because they were covered in coal dust
    Whalin' crew = ship crew
    pusser = purser
    Donny-B = a huge house 5 at Donnibristle(Donny-B) miles east of the ''Admiral for Rosyth Naval Base'' dockyard in Scotland
    How long can you handle it?
