Who Sang Who pays the piper? The McCalmans

The McCalmans Flames on the water cover art
Release information
length: 3:12
Who pays the piper, who pays the piper

Who pays the piper, who calls the tune?
Who pays the piper, what is the fee?

Flames on the water, death on the sea

And the tune is old and has always told

How the great, brave and bold they do flourish

How bravely they gamble with other men's lives
And profit as other men perish

And the tune resounds and is always found

Where the ground receives yet another

Father of dazed and despairing young bairns
Or a son of a desolate mother

And the price is dear for the folk who fear

And who bear the burden of sorrow

For those who were lost where the graph of the cost

Crossed the graph of rich pickings tomorrow
