School Days Over
E.MacColl

Schooldays over, come on then John, time to be gettin' your pit boots on
On with your sark and moleskin trousers, it's time you were on your way
Time you were learning the pitman's job and earning a 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 shovel, you start at the pit today
Time you were learning the collier's job and earning a collier's pay

Come on then Dai, it's almost light, time you were off to the anthracite
The morning mist in on the valley, it's time you were on your way
Time you were learning the miner's job and earning a miner's pay

Schooldays over, come on then John, time to be gettin' your pit boots on
On with your sark and moleskin trousers, it's time you were on your way
Time you were learning the pitman's job and earning a pitman's pay
