Story

Not the most romantic theme to write about. This song celebrates the great achievement of Sir Joseph Bazalgette, the Engineer who designed and built the London sewer system in the late nineteenth century.

Lyrics

There was someting in the news that came today. Seems there may be many changes on the way, here moving fat, here at last. Guess it's time to call Sir Joseph in today, put the work in hand and get things underway, then one day, he can say. Now all the world will come to know a new age has begun, And everyone will cry for me and say a job well done. All the Lords and Commons gathered here today. They may have to hold their meeting far away. Such a shame, who's to blame. Guess it's time to call Sir Joseph in today. Tell the men they have to start work right away, then one day, he can say. Now all the world will come to know a new age has begun, and everyone will cry for me and say a jobe well done. When the Summer days had been, all the Lords could not be seen, and the Commons had it worng, for they waited far to long. Time to make the river clean.
