If the rocks in the box
Get the water right down to your socks
This bulkhead's built of fallen brethren's bones

We all do what we can
We endure our fellow man
And we sing our songs to the headframe's creaks and moans

And it's one, two, three
On the wrong side of the lee
What were you meant for
What were you meant for

And it's seven, eight, nine
You gave your shuffle back in line
If the rocks in the box
Get the water right down to your socks
This bulkhead's built of fallen brethren's bones

We all do what we can
We endure our fellow man
And we sing our songs to the headframe's creaks and moans

And it's one, two, three
On the wrong side of the lee
What were you meant for
What were you meant for

And it's seven, eight, nine
You gave your shuffle back in line
