A minerís life is like a sailor,
Board a ship across the waves.
Evíry day his lifeís in danger,
Many ventures being brave.

Watch the rocks, theyíre falling daily,
Careless miners always fail.
Keep your hand upon your wages,
And your eye upon the scale.

Union miners, stand together:
Do not heed the Coal Boardís tale!
Keep your hand upon your wages,
And your eye upon the scale.

Youíve been docked and docked again, boys,
Youíve been loading three for one.
Whatís the use in all your working
When your mining days are done?

Worn out shoes and worn out miners,
Blackened lungs and faces pale.
Keep your hand upon your wages,
And your eye upon the scale.

Union miners, stand togetherÖ

In conclusion, bear in memíry,
Keep this password in your mind:
Workersí strength cannot be broken
When unions be combined.

Stand up tall and stand together,
Victory for you prevail.
Keep your hand upon your wages,
And your eye upon the scale.

Union miners, stand togetherÖ

anon.
