I've won a heroes name with McAlpine and Costain With Fitzpatrick, Murphy, Ashe and Wimpey's gang I've been often on the road on my way to draw the dole When there's nothing left to do for Sir John Laing I used to think that God made the mixer pick and hod So that Paddy might know hell above the ground I've had gangers big and tough tell me tear it all out rough When you're building up and tearing England down In a tunnel underground a young Limerick man was found He was built into the new Victoria Line When the pouring gang had past sticking through the concrete cast Was the face of little Charlie Joe Devine And the ganger man McGurk big Paddy ate the work When the gas main burst and he flew off the ground Oh they swear he said "Don't slack, I'll not be here until I'm back" Keep on building up and tearing England down I remember Carrier Jack with his hod upon his back How he swore he'd one day set the world on fire But his face they've never seen since his shovel it cut clean Through the middle of a big high tension wire I saw auld Bald McGann from the big flyover fall
