Billy was born within sight of the shipyard
And Billy was raised as the ship grew a shadow

A working man live like a slave
Of money he never would save

They launched a great ship out to sea
To a future he desperately wanted to flee
A new ship to be built, new work to be done
One day he dreamed of the ship in the world
To a place they would never be found

All the workmen suspended like flies
A working man works till the industry dies

Crushed those it couldn't forgive
A brass watch, a cheque, maybe three weeks to live,
A new ship to be built, new work to be done
That night, he dreamed of the ship in the world
To a place they could never be found
A Newcastle ship without coals
