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