The Man Who Plans the Roadworks in Blackpool

 They say that he’s been blind from birth
He’s never seen sod all
Set him walking in a line, he’ll bump into a wall
But there’s no need to pity him – they say he’s blind but not a fool
We know him as the man who plans the roadworks in Blackpool

They say he's never seen a vehicle.
He’s not heard of a van.
But if you want your town’s streets digging up
Just call him – he’s your man.
They’ve got lots of rude names for him and say that he’s a tool
We know him as the man who plans the roadworks in Blackpool

They say he likes to stop the traffic and loves to hear our moans.
They say he wants to line the promenade with seven miles of cones.
Those folk who claim they’ve met him say he never went to school
We know him as the man who plans the roadworks in Blackpool

They say he lives by one strict guideline: “Let’s fix stuff that’s not broke.”
And so the town’s made unwelcome, to visiting holiday folk.
“Let’s stop the traffic flowing,” is this guy’s golden rule.
We know him as the man who plans the roadworks in Blackpool

One day they say it'll all ge over
One day they say it will end
But then the man who plans the road works
Will start the whole bloody process again.

I 'dig' this post man, like totally.
