Lyrics

Schoolday's over, come on then John
Time to be getting your pit boots on
On with your sack and moleskin trousers
It's time you were on your way
Time you were learning the pitman's job
And earning the 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'll start at the pits today
Time you were learning the collier's job
And earning the collier's pay

Come on then Dai, it's almost 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 the miner's pay

Schoolday's over, come on then John
Time to be getting your pit boots on
On with your sack and moleskin trousers
It's time you were on your way
Time you were learning the pitman's job
And earning the pitman's pay
