Track Name: Damien Dempsey - Schoolday's Over
Schooldays over, come on then, John -
Time to be getting your pit boots on.
On with your sark and moleskin trousers,
Time you was on your way.
Time you was learning the pitman’s job
And earning the pitman’s pay.

Come on then, Jim, it’s time to go -
Time you was working down below.
Time to be handling a pick and shovel,
You start at the pit today.
Time you was learning the collier’s job
And earning a collier’s pay.

Come on then, Dai, it’s almost light -
Time you was off to the anthracite.
The morning mist is on the valley,
It’s time you was on your way,
Time you was learning the miner’s job
And earning a miner’s pay.
