A Parody by C.J. Dennis

| No TrackBacks
Owing to the fact that the service is soon to be electrified, the Adelaide Tramway Trust finds it inadvisable to increase the rolling-stock, and the public must suffer temporary inconvenience. In the words (more or less) of the popular song:-

"There was I, waiting for a car,
Waiting for a car,
Waiting for a car,
When I thought of how the thing would jar,
Lor! How it did upset me!
By and by I heard a little word,
Wasn't it absurd?
This is what I heard:
'Can see my way to carry you to-day
Moncrief -- (Boom! Boom!) won't let me.'"
