Trumpton riots

Inspired by this thread.

Unemployment's rising in the Chigley end of town and it's spreading like pneumonia; doesn't look like going down.
There's trouble at the fire station; someone's had the sack.
And the lads are going to launch a scheme to get rid of Captain Flack.

I remember it well.

Quite often hum it. As well as the train song. I nearly accidentally taught my daughter the words once.... Then realised and went back to humming.... "Life flys by when your the driver of a train, riding out of Trumpton with a..... Hmmmmhmhmmmhmhmmm"
