Hello my name is Padge O'Connor
I'm from County Down
Came over to get some work
Saw a big fear gorm
With an iron in his hand
He said to stick it in the fucking ground

Now do it again and again
And again and again
Again and again and again

Working on the railways
You can't take my life
Slaving for my wages
Our lives full of strife

You can't imagine
The shit jobs we get
When the Irish need not apply
Out here in the sun
And the heat moving West
Slaving away 'til we die

Well you think you don't know me
You hear me everyday
The sound of the undercarriage
It's just another day
Working double overtime
Just to get paid
Knowing when the railway's built
My job is gone away
