SCHOOLDAYS OVER

Schooldays over, come on then John
Time to be getting your pit boots on
On with your socks and your moleskin trousers
Time you were on your way
Time you were learning the pitman's job
And earning the pitman's pay.

Come on then Jim it's time to go
Time you were working down below
Time to be handling a pick and a shovel
You start at the pits today
Time to be learning the pitman's job
And earning the pitman's pay.

Come on then Dai it's nearly light
Time you were off to the anthracite
The morning mist is on the valley
It's time you were on your way
Time you were learning the collier's job
and earning the collier's pay.

Schooldays over, come on then John
Time to be getting your pit boots on
On with your socks and your moleskin trousers
Time you were on your way
Time you were learning the pitman's job
And earning the pitman's pay.
