Willie Lee, The Railway Porter


I'm a decent railway porter And my name is Willie Lee
You can search in all the stations from Dumbarton to Dundee
And I'm sure you'll ne'er set eyes upon a nicer chap than me,
An' my duty is to tell ye whaur tae change furrrrrrr.

Change for Achterclachter, cuddle ma dachter
Crieff an' Cullercoats, Fife or John o' Groats,
Beecham's Pills and Quaker's Oats;
Change fer Ecclefechan, Aberdeen,
An a' the stations inbetween,
Unless ye want tae gang tae Tobermory.

At Ecclefechan Junction, if ye should ever be,
Just pop oot yer heid an' you're sure to notice me
'Cause I'm the most important person ye're likely for tae see
An' my duty is to tell ye whaur tae change furrrrrrr.

Change for Achterclachter, cuddle ma dachter
Crieff an' Cullercoats, Fife or John o' Groats,
Beecham's Pills and Quaker's Oats;
Change for Clachnacuddin, the Sands o' Buddon
And there ye'll find a mealy pudd'n
Tae eat afore ye ganf tae Tobermory.

One day the Royal train came in an' I was full o' pride
I popped my heid inside the door and there I espied
The Duke of York, the King and Queen, the two Princesses in-between
An' I yelled with all my might, "Ye've got tae change furrrrrrr...."

Change for Achterclachter, cuddle ma dachter
Crieff an' Cullercoats, Fife or John o' Groats,
Beecham's Pills and Quaker's Oats;
Change fer Ecclefechan, Aberdeen,
An a' the stations inbetween,
Unless ye want tae gang tae Tobermory.
