    The angry cat - He used to look down the hatch and say,

    "Is Me owl man down there?"

    The diesel fitter - Always picking things up and saying ,

    "These will fit her."

    Rembrandt - "Hang on a mo an' I'll put you in the picture."

    The baldy Cat - Every time he got on the bus, he had no fare (fur).

    Tarmac - "A pint please and one for the road."

    Wonder boy, a wonder what's in this one
    Lazy lawyer always lying on the case
    Oh as I was young and easy in the mercy of his means,
    Time held me green and dying
    Though I sang in my chains like the sea.

    The Good Shepherd, he was caught by old `One A Day`the policeman on the gate at the Gladstone. who always got one a day.
    `Whats under yer coat,` and the docker said "I am just keeping this lamb warm" A frozen lamb off the meat boats.

    Then there was the Priest always shouting down the Hatch , "Hey men"
    [ amen].
