lyrics My Old Man's a Dustman

Now here's a little story to tell it is a must
About an unsung hero that moves away your dust
Some people make a fortune others earn a mint
My old man don't earn much in fact he's flippin' skint
Oh my old man's a dustman he wears a dustman's hat
He wears cor-blimey trousers and he lives in a council flat
He looks a proper nana in his great big hobnail boots
He's got such a job to pull them up
That he calls 'em daisy roots
Some folks give tips at Christmas and some of them forget
Ah ah
So when he picks their bins up he spills some on the step
Now one old man got nasty and to the council wrote
Next time my old man went 'round there he punched him up the throat
Oh my old man's a dustman he wears a dustman's hat
He wears cor-blimey trousers and he lives in a council flat
I say I say Les
I er I found a police dog
Yes?
In my dustbin he had a policeman with him
Well how do you know he's a police dog?
Though my old man's a dustman he's got an 'eart of gold
He got married recently though he's eighty-six years old
We said ere hang on Dad you're getting past your prime
He said well when you get my age it helps to pass the time
Hey
My old man's a dustman he wears a dustman's hat
He wears cor-blimey trousers and he lives in a council flat
I say I say I say my dustbin's full of lilies
Huh? well throw 'em away then
I can't Lily's wearing them
Now one day whilst in a hurry he missed a lady's bin
He hadn't gone but a few yards when she chased after him
What game do you think you're playing? she cried right from the 'eart
You've missed me am I too late? no jump up on the cart
My old man's a dustman he wears a dustman's hat
He wears cor-blimey trousers and he lives in a council flat
I say I say I say my dustbin's absolutely
Not you again full with toadstools
How do you know it's full?
'Cos there's not mushroom inside
Hey
He found a tiger's head one day nailed to a piece of wood
The tiger looked like miserable but I suppose he should
Just then from out a window a voice began to wail
It said oi where's me tiger's head? four foot from his tail
Oh my old man's a dustman he wears a dustman's hat
He wears cor-blimey trousers and he lives in a council flat
Next time you see a dustman looking all pale and sad
Don't kick him in the dustbin it might be my old dad
