    Opening Night

    Packaging up and pulling down
    moving to another town
    The work was hard the craic was great
    until you lift the heavy plate
    It must have been now twice the weight
    you'd get the call your breakfast waits
    So much stuff to pack away
    have to travel in a day
    Checking loads and tugging ropes
    dodging traffic scream at dopes
    On the road now for the day
    for safe passage now you'd pray
    Safely parked now on new grounds
    building up not like pull downs
    Slowly now your work begins
    with it now excitement brings
    Crowds now stand and watch each day
    for ten days the show would stay
    Everything now double checked
    safety first in all respects
    Start the plant to check the lights
    ready now for opening night
