Excerpt from Government Clerks: A Book of Ballads
The Workaday Government Clerk.
Here's to the workaday government clerk,
Who does to the government's credit his work;
Trudging each day a monotonous track,
Forward and backward and forward and back;
Pegging away at the ancient routine, -
(Much is accomplished where little is seen);
Arduous labor and technical work, -
Here's to the workaday government clerk
Here's to the workaday government clerk,
Gray-headed, bald-headed, florid or dark;
Stoopy men, droopy men, little and big,
Work again, home again, jiggety jig
Old in the Service or young at the game,
What are the odds if the end is the same?
Whether his hope be a flame or a spark,
Here's to the workaday government clerk
Here's to the workaday government clerk,
Doing his best without shamming or shirk.
Whether his children or dollars increase,
Whether he asketh or holdeth his peace,
Whether he getteth promotion or (p)raise,
Doing his best to the end of his days,
Too thorough to fail and too honest to shirk,
Here's to the workaday government clerk
Here's to the workaday government clerk
Daily he maketh (on paper) his mark.
Whether he getteth or not what he ought,
Earning it, burning it, (comforting thought )
Paying his debts with apportioning care,
Or banking a bit while the weather is fair,
Making each pay-day his reckoning mark,
Here's to the workaday government clerk
