  • I'm Burlington Bertie, I rise at ten thirty
    Then saunter along like a toff.
    I walk down the Strand with my gloves on my hand,
    Then I walk down again with them off.
  • The flies go up the window,
    They've nothing else to do,
    They go up in their hundreds
    And they come down two by two.
    • Song I Know Where The Flies Go.
  • There was Riley pushing it, shoving it, shushing it
    Hogan, Logan and ev'ryone in town lined up
    Attacking it and shoving it and smacking it
    They might as well have tried to push the Town Hall down.
    The donkey was eyeing them,
    Openly defying them
    Winking, blinking and twisting out of place,
    Riley reversing it,
    Ev'rybody cursing it
    The day Delaney's donkey ran the half mile race.
    • Song Delaney's Donkey.
