Boat Train Lyrics

I met with Napper Tandy
And I shook him by the hand
He said, "Hold me up for Chrissake
For I can hardly stand"

The most disgraceful journey
On which I've ever been
The last time that I traveled on
The Boat Train

I had a couple of drinks in town
A few more at the port
I puked up on the gangway
But some kind folks helped me board

They helped me to a table
Poured whiskey down my throat
They sat me at a table
And I lost my watch and coat

First we drank some whiskey
Then we drank some gin
Then we drank tequila
I think that's what did me in

Then we drank some brandy
And the women had a dance
The steward then announced
That we could play the game of 'Chance'

We crowded round the table
With our money in our hands
I ended up on the other side
Without a penny in my pants

I woke up in the toilet
When we got to Holy head
The doors were all a-banging
And I wished that I was dead

We got on board the train
And then we had a drink or two
Started playing poker
But the booze ran out at Crewe
Some people started sleeping
Others looked for duty free

Some bastard started singing
"The little cottage by the Lee"
He then sang, 'Paper Roses'
'Boolavogue', 'Eileen Aru'
Somebody started slagging off
The Pakis and the Jews

First I found some whiskey
Then I found some gin
I sat down in the corner
And I read the Daily News

First I drank the whiskey
Then I drank the gin
I tried to make the toilet
And I broke my f**kin' shin

Next thing that I knew
I was in London in the rain
Staggering up the platform
Off the Boat Train
