Lyrics

Chorus
(For) I am a driver, these are me tubs, Ah’m up the road, old (lads) boys, my pony rubs,
Where is the doggie? Nobody knows. He’s dahn by the pass-by a picking his nose!

1
Ah shall be glad when this shift is done; Ah shall be up there out in the sun,
Tha’ll still be down here in this dark ’oil, a grunting and groaning and pulling the coil.

2
All t’ corn’s in t’ manger and watter’s in t’ trough, tha’ll pull thi noase aht when tha’s enough,
Ah’ll tek thee in t’ standing and drop off thi gear. When Ah comes back Ah know tha’ll be here.
