Liner Notes: 

This is Dvorak's Humoresque.. (or a fragment thereof) and I remembered there was a set of words written to it.. which was my starting point.. (borrowed most of the first three lines) but I couldn't imagine myself singing the rest of them, much less my alter ego "Dottie" . This is a reworking.. I hope you like it. Obviously like all such attempts there's endless opportunity to tweak later..

TodayI found this verse that's funny and not too disgusting:

Do not pull your trousers down
When coming to a major town
You may not have the time to see it through
And the A section really should repeat.
I also found another set of words this time by the comedian Jasper Carrott. which at first glance I thought might be an alternative - but then I realised they were lewd and suggestive: erm think I prefer toilet humour!!

Lyrics: 

Dvorak's Humoresque:

A SECTION:

C F C G

Passengers will please refrain
From flushing toilets while the train
Is standing in the station. We thank you!

C F CGC
And if you simply have to go
And other people are so slow,
There really is just one thing you can do.

B SECTION:

CF G C
You don’t have to rush it
Just please don’t flush it
Cause the debris will spread a bit..
CF G C G
Just sit tight and wait here
Quiet contemplate here
Wait for the engine to rev a bit..
(Just a bit)

A SECTION:
C F C G
Once the train has left the station.
Recommence the operation
Easy does it, pull the chain let’s go! (whoo hoo)

C F CGC
This is what you have to do
To use a railway carriage loo

We hope you’ve had a pleasant journey too.

Or something about "from the crew". These days on British trains there are ridiculouv soice overs that make train travel seem like an uber-sophisticated plane journey.



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I remember singing the original (section A) in the long long ago. I think you've provided a worthy addition!
