Come in and Pull Down the Blinds If ever you go on a railway train Well, don't look out of the window pane For I was in the carriage once and did it to my regret This is what happened to me Well this old devil he said to me ""would you look out the window and see if the train is coming yet"" So I looked out of the window, Me hat did blow away Then I leaned out to get it In an idiotic way Me pants were tight and they bursted The passenger sat behind Said ""I see those little short shorts you've got You'd better pull down the blind"". The other night at 12 oclock I was given a helluva shock When out the back yard clearly I heard a terrible row Me wife said it's a German Band Coming to drive us off the land Then I looked out the window And I heard a faint ""meow meow"" Yes, I looked out of the window And saw a cat below He was making quare arrangements With the ginger cat next door I drownded him with water Me wife ""you're unkind! You did it yerself when you were young You better pull down the blind!"" We live in a narrow street Across the road is just eight feet When I look out the window I see into the house inside So I looked out of the window And saw a room with light And there I saw a big fat dame Retiring for the night First she pulled down her knickers And then she changed her mind She was pullin' em up and pullin' em down And forgot to pull down the blind!" This little ditty, recorded by Foster and Allen, then by Brendan Shine, is simply called "The Blind" B O'B BO'B APR99
