Where Do You Work-a, John?

(Harry Warren, Mortimer Weinberg and Charley Marks)

Ah, la, la,
Ah, la, la,
Ah, la, la,
Ah, la, la.

Now, where do you work-a, John?
On the Delaware-Lackawann;
What do you do-a, John?
I push-a, push-a, push.
What do you push-a, John?
I push-a, push-a the truck.
Where do push-a, John?
On the Delaware-Lackawanna, wanna, wanna, wanna,
The Delaware-Lackawann!
Hey!

Ah, la, la,
Ah, la, la,
Ah, la, la,
Ah, la, la.

La, la, la, la, la!
La, la, la, la, la!

La, la, la, la, la!
La, la, la, la, la!

Ah, la, la,
Ah, la, la,
Ah, la, la,
Ah, la, la.



Notes about this piece:
    A longer version of this song was performed in the Betty Boop cartoon, Mask-A-Raid, probably by the same band.
