Have you seen bruce richard reynolds?
he's a man we'd like to find
they say the great train robbery
he was the mastermind
and his firm they pulled the greatest turn
the world has ever known
2 million quid was stolen
the firm swid for parts unknown
have you seen bruce richard reynolds?
he's a man we must detain
he's wanted for the robbery of the glasgow/Euston train
age 32, height six foot one, eyes gray, his hair is brown
apprehend bruce richard reynolds he is wanted by the crown
Well reynolds and some people got together as a firm
while doin' bird and wearin scrubs he heard about a turn
Rob a train but it needed brains so reynolds scratched his head
"when i done my bird then rob that train" thats what he said
well reynolds left his prison cell he started on his scheme
he contacted ole' Gordon 'G' and charlie wilson's team
they came to an agreement
and a partnership was made
by summer 63' the scene was set for reynold's raid
the night of august 8th y'know the rig went like a dream
on-hundred an' twenty meal-bags full of money was stolen by the team
but someone left his finger prints and the guys were soon on charge
but they only caught the muscle cause' the brains were still at large
a good one came to news
and mister reynolds made a vow
"well no-one grassed on me" he said
"i cant desert em' now"
"the iron bars and prison walls
they do not bother me"
"i robbed the mails, so ill rob the jails and set my whole firm free"
by august 64 ol' charlie wilson left his cell
by late in 65 brought big ol' annie olse aswell
have you seen bruce richard reynolds
He's a mastermind you know
just walking through the walls of jails and lettin' his firm go
