The Career of Me

I used to be in the Royal Navy Until I realised it was not for me So I headed back up north To the country where I love to be I joined an automotive parts company Moving to trucks and trailers alone Then suddenly we were made redundant At a young age into the unknown But seek and ye shall find It was in January 1981 When I joined a local tools company Unemployment I had on the run I have been with my present company Golly! it's now over eighteen years From Engineering to Aquaculture An enjoyable move in my working career
