VP_017267 Verse 1Oh ev'ry morn at seven o'clock There are twenty tarriers on the rock, The boss come along and says "be still And put all your power in the cast steel drill": Chorus 1Then drill, ye tarriers, drill, Drill, ye tarriers, drill. Oh it's work all day without sugar in your tay when ye work beyant on the railway, And drill, ye tarriers, drill, and drill, and drill! Verse 2The boss was a fine man all around But he married a great, big, fat fardown, She baked good bread and baked it well, And baked it hard as the hobs of H-I. Verse 3The new foreman is Dan Mc Cann, I'll tell you sure he's a blame mean man, Last week a premature blast went off, And a mile in the air went big Jim Goff: Verse 4When pay day next it came around, Poor Jim's pay a dollar Short he found, "What for?" says he then came this reply, "You were docked for the time you were up in the sky". Verse 5Stand out there with the flag, Sullivan. Stand back there! Blast! Fire! All over! Verse 6Stand out forninst the fence with the flag, McCarthy. Stand back, etc. Verse 7Where's the fuse, Mc Ginty? What, he lit his pipe with it! Stop the Belt car coming down. Stand back, etc. Verse 8More oatmeal in the bucket, Mc Cue. What's that your reading, Duffy, the Staats Zeitung? Get out there with the flag, etc.
