WHO PUT THE BRICKS IN BRIXTON?
 
div
 
A bright intelligent lad one day
Was asking his dear old Dad
The meaning of this and the meaning of that
The questions were answered by Dad, pit and pat
The Kiddie said, 'Dad, before bye bye I go
There is another thing I'd like to know,

Chorus: Who put the bricks in Brixton?
Who put the bat in Battersea?
Who put the 'eye' in Highbury?
Who put the shore in Shoreditch?
And there's another thing I'd like to know
Who left the King in KIngsway?
And who put the jerry in Jericho?'


'Plums come from Plumstead I know that quite well
And wool comes from Woolwich too
From Glasgow, I know we get plenty of glass
Inside the basoon there's plenty of bass
Roses they bloom out in far Picardy
They don't bloom like the noses in sweet Bloomsbury.'

Chorus: Who put the bricks in Brixton?
Who put the bat in Battersea?
Who put the 'eye' in Highbury?
Who put the shore in Shoreditch?
And there's another thing I'd like to know
Who left the King in KIngsway?
And who put the jerry in Jericho?'
