Chicken on a raft

Skipper's in the wardroom drinking gin, (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)
I don't mind knocking but I ain't going in, (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)
'Jimmy's' laughing like a drain, (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)
Been looking at m' 'comic cuts' again. (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)

Chorus:
Chicken on a raft on a Monday morning, oh what a terrible sight to see,
'Dabtoes' for'd and the Dustmen aft, sitting there picking at a 'chicken on a raft'.
Hey-oh, chicken on a raft, Oy-oh, chicken on a raft.
Hey-oh, chicken on a raft, Oy-oh, chicken on a raft.

They gave me the Middle and the Forenoon too, (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)
And now I'm pulling in the whaler's crew, (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)
Seagulls wheeling overhead, (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)
I ought to be 'flogging' in a feather bed. (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)

I had a little girl in 'Donny B', (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)
And oh, she made a fool of me, (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)
Her heart was like a Pusser's shower, (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)
From hot to cold in a quarter of an hour. (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)

An Amazon girl lives in Dumfries, (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)
She only has kids in twos and threes, (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)
Her sister lives in Maryhill, (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)
She says she won't but I think she will. (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)

We kissed goodbye on the midnight bus, (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)
She didn't cry, she didn't fuss, (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)
Am I the man that she loves best? (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)
Or am I just a cuckoo in another man's nest? (Hey-oh, chicken on a raft)

"I ought to be 'flogging' in a feather bed" should be "Oh to be floating in a feather bed.
Midnight bus one is the third verse
Amazon Girl is 4th verse
Donny B is 5th and last verse
