Keep The Shovel Tipping Song Lyrics By Richie Kavanagh. A song about working for the County Council and doing as little as possible for as long as possible.

Well I've been on the council twenty year
And I'll never leave it don't you fear
One time they tried to get rid of me
But they wouldn't pay me redundancy.

Oh keep the shovil tipping you won't feel the time slipping
Come in on time go home on time and take your time all day
Oh keep the shovil tipping you won't feel the time slipping
Come in on time go home on time and take your time all day.

Well I started off as a shovil man,
Then they made me a ganger man
I think the time is comming near
When I'll become an overseer.

Oh keep the shovil tipping you won't feel the time slipping
Come in on time go home on time and take your time all day
Oh keep the shovil tipping you won't feel the time slipping
Come in on time go home on time and take your time all day.

Well the overseer is not so bad, he's retiring soon and I'm so glad
Because I think I'll get his job, and it's worth an extra couple of bob.

Oh keep the shovil tipping you won't feel the time slipping
Come in on time go home on time and take your time all day
Oh keep the shovil tipping you won't feel the time slipping
Come in on time go home on time and take your time all day.

It was a cold auld day I had nothing to fear
Cause you never see an engineer
He's in the offal all tucked up ? [Maybe not correct]
Delving into a big hot cup.

Oh keep the shovel tipping you won't feel the time slipping
Come in on time go home on time and take your time all day
Oh keep the shovel tipping you won't feel the time slipping
Come in on time go home on time and take your time all day.

Hay lad is it time to get the tea, ay, one more time Johnny
