"School Days Over" as written by and Ewan Maccoll....
Schooldays over, come on then John,
Time to be gettin' your pit boots on
On with your sark 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 a shovel
You 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

Schooldays over, come on then John,
Time to be gettin' your pit boots on
On with your sark 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
