Cosher Bailey's Engine (sometimes mislabed as Did You Ever See Such a Funny Thing Before?) is a traditional british folk song, sung by The Jukebox Band on the Season 2 episode Achoo. The song is a tribute to welsh railroader and industrialist Crawshay Bailey, who would be refered to as The Iron Master during his lifetime. The songs lyrics tell many stories of Cosher and his life of steam trains, family and faking his own death. The song is labeled as a traditional song by most for there is no credit to who originally made the song. The earliest known date of the songs origin dates back to 1893. Tito tries to show off to the rest of the band by calling himself "The Great Tito" referring to the rest of the band as "Little People". They dare him to show just how great he is while performing the song. As the song comes to it's close Mr. Conductor's magic on returning to the station causes the band and the song to speed up.

Lyrics

Cosher Bailey had an Engine

It was always wantin' ,endin',

And according to the Power, She could do four miles an hour.

Did you ever see? Did you ever see?

Did you ever see such a funny thing before?


On the night run up from Gower she did twenty miles an hour

As she whistled through the station, man she freightned half the nation!

Did you ever see? Did you ever see?

Did you ever see such a funny thing before?


Cosher Bailey's aunty Anna

she played the grand pianna


She went Hammer! Hammer! Hammer!


All the neighbours said, "Can't stand her!"

Did you ever see? Did you ever see?

Did you ever see such a funny thing before?


Oh the sight It was heart-rending

Cosher drove his little engine

and he got stuck in the tunnel

and went up the bloomin' funnel!


Cosher Bailey he did die, and rhey put him in a coffin

But, Alas, they heard a knockin'

Cosher Bailey only joshin'!

Did you ever see? Did you ever see?

Did you ever see such a funny thing before?


Cosher Bailey had an Engine

It was always wantin' ,endin',

And according to the Power, She could do four miles an hour.

Did you ever see? Did you ever see?

Did you ever see such a funny thing before?

(music speeding up)

Out of control

How do ya stop this thing?

What's Going On?

Tito's outta control

Tito's outta control
