The Railway Boggart


It would appear that the Internet doesn't know the words to the song _The Railway Boggart_, which I learned in school aged 9/10. This is unfortunate, because I wanted to find out if there were any verses beyond the one we were taught, which went like this:

Dwarfs live undergound,
Dryads in trees.
There are trolls and goblins and imps and ogres,
Bogeymen and kelpies, but much rarer than these,
And very much nicer is such a rogue
As the Railway Boggart:
He doesn't clank chains,
But plays all his tricks,
On railway trains.

I used it as a source for some of the monsters in MUD1. No, I'm not making that up.
