Christmas on the coal-face
Christmas on the coal - face, - toffees on the tree,
See them in the cap - lamp`s glow, save one please for me,
Deputy`s gone `on his round`, it`s time to have some cheer,
( Maybe we can find that tin of hidden beer ? ) .
Tighten up the timber, clear the AFC,
Pinch the `coal - tops in the `end`, set an extra tree,
Bring the `horseheads ` forward, and `cog` up to the line,
Then decorate the `face` because it`s `party time `.
All the men together, - food and drink is strong,
Streamers on the `chock - line`, men now sing along,
Safety lamps are glowing, lighting up the place,
Happy men together, with a smile upon their face.
Christmas on the coal - face, toffees on the tree,
Time for men to rest now, no time for misery,
Have a slice of pork pie, resting on your knee,
Cause it`s Christmas on the coal - face, -
There`s toffees on the tree .
`Merry Christmas`. ( Love to all ).
