So, my son came home from school today singing "Orre orrey ay!", and I ask him what he's singing. He shows me the homework (they get singing homeowrk, I love his school) and it's the Working on the Railroad song that was done in folksinging..clapsy orrey oreey ay.
However, his homework is the British lyrics, which are different from the ones that Phyllis did. Does anyone remember the lyrics? All I can get is the eighteen hundred and forty six/stepped upon some dynamite sticks verse. And no, googling isn't getting me anywhere.
