W: W:2 W:On the night run up from Gower W:She did twenty mile an hour W:As she whistled through the station W:Man, she frightened half the nation. W: W:3 W:Cosher bought her second-hand W:And he painted her so grand W:When the driver went to oil her W:Man, she nearly burst her boiler. W: W:4 W:Cosher Bailey's sister Lena W:She was living up in Blaina W:She could knit and darn our stockings W:But her cooking it was shocking. W: W:5 W:Cosher Bailey's brother Rupert W:He played stand-off-half for Newport, W:When they played against Llanelly W:Someone kicked him in the belly. W: W:6 W:Cosher Bailey had a daughter W:Who did things she didn't oughter W:She was quite beyond the pale W:But over that we'll draw a veil. W: W:7 W:Cosher Bailey went to Exford W:For to pass matriculation W:But he saw a pretty barmaid W:And he never left the station. W: W:8 W:Oh the sight it was heart-rending W:Cosher drove his little engine W:And he got stuck in the tunnel W:And went up the bloomin' funnel. W: W:9 W:Cosher Bailey's little engine W:Couldn't even sound its hooter W:Just to make the steam go higher W:He made water on the fire. W: W:10 W:Yes, Cosher Bailey he did die W:And they put him in a coffin W:But, alas, they heard a knocking W:Cosher Bailey, only joking. W: W:11 W:Well, the Devil wouldn't have him W:But he gave him sticks and matches W:For to set up on his own W:On the top of Barford Hatches. % % % % % % % % %]
