Every day we hear the tale

of the saga of British Rail.

People pay their fare at the station

not knowing when they will get to their destination.

This all came about through personal greed

despite being told it would not succeed.

Professional men were given the sack

to be replaced by the sham called Railtrack.

Maybe BR was not all that good

but most of the public understood.

First we had silly daft motives

then we were short of men to drive the locomotives.

One of these days they may learn to their cost

the wrath of the public whose support they lost.

Who have to suffer and to battle

to get to work whilst being treated like cattle.
