Never more the `buzzers` sound,
To miners going underground,
Never more among the toil,
Will miners laugh, below the soil.
Never more the `buzzers` cheer,
To welcome in a bright New Year,
Never more will miners stand,
To heed their call throughout the land.
Never more the `buzzers` warn,
Of death and danger, hurt or harm,
Never more will strong men fight,
Against the wrath of nature`s might.
Never more the `buzzers` cry,
When darkness bids it`s last goodbye,
Never more to wake from sleep,
The miner in his slumber deep.
Evermore a silent land,
Time has stilled the miner`s hand,
But although the coal has ceased to flow,
The `buzzer` calls him still below.
