Drill Ye Tarriers Drill

Every morning about seven o'clock
There were twenty tarriers drilling at the rock
The boss comes along and he says, "Keep still
And bear down heavy on the cast iron drill"

  And drill, ye tarriers, drill
  Drill, ye tarriers, drill
  For it's work all day for the sugar in you tay
  Down beyond the railway
  And drill, ye tarriers, drill
  And blast, and fire

The boss was a fine man down to the ground
And he married a lady six feet 'round
She baked good bread and she baked it well
But she baked it harder than the hobs of Hell

The foreman's name was John McCann
By God, he was a blamed mean man
Last week a premature blast went off
And a mile in the air went big Jim Goff

And when next payday came around
Jim Goff a dollar short was found
When he asked, "What for?" came this reply
"You were docked for the time you were up in the sky"

recorded  here by Richard Dyer-Bennet, but remembered from  "Sing
Along with Mitch"
