Steam carriages by land

Suggested tune :  [557Notation]

Steam carriages by land are now the order of the day, sir,
But why they haven't started yet, 'tis not for me to say, sir ;
Some people hint 'tis uphill work-that loose they find a screw, sir,
Such novelties, as Pat would say, of old they never knew, sir.
Bow, wow, &c.
