LIRR-DISABILITY SCANDAL: Rethinking ‘I’ve Been Working on the Railroad’

A very special dedication to every not-that-disabled former LIRR employee who’s enjoying a nice round of golf on a pleasant fall day as the rest of us working stiffs work.

 

I’ve Been Shirking on the Railroad

I’ve been shirking on the railroad

All the live-long day.

I’ve been shirking on the railroad

Sometimes grabbin’ four days’ pay

 

Don’t you feel your back a-achin’

Pullin’ at those heavy-ass doors

Don’t you feel your knees a-smartin’

Punchin’ tickets for commuter bores

 

Retirement Board won’t you sign

Retirement Board won’t you sign

Retirement Board won’t you sign

My for-or-orm?

Retirement Board won’t you sign

Retirement Board won’t you sign

Retirement Board won’t you sign my form

Someone’s on the golf course with Edward

Someone’s on the golf course I know

Someone’s on the golf course with Edward

Sure beats makin’ trains go

 

Singin’ fee, fi, fiddly-i-o

Fee, fi, fiddly-i-o-o-o-o

Fee, fi, fiddly-i-o

Livin’ large on taxpayers’ dough
