Will we get cold and hungry
Will times be very bad?
When we're needin' bread and meat
Where we gonna get it, Dad?

We'll get it from the man
In the house on the hill
Yes we will from the man on the hill

Ploughin' time is over
Still the fields are bare
How we gonna make a livin'
With twenty acres to share?

I'll beg for more land
