Chorus

Rappa te bank, me canny lad

Winda away, keep turnin

The back-shift men are gannin’ yem

They’ll be back here in the mornin’

 

(Turning, turning etc

Wind a way, wind a way etc)

 

 

Me fatha used to caal the time

When the last shift it was ower.

An gannin’ oot bye, ye’ll hear him cry

D’ye knaa it’s af-ter fower? (He’d cry)

 

Chorus

 

(Turning, turning etc

Wind a way, wind a way etc)

 

An’ when that aaful day arrived,

The last shift for me fatha

A faal of stones and brocken bones,

But still a-bove the clatter (He’d cry)

 

Ah-Ah Ah-Ah———————————

Final chorus:

Rappa te bank, me canny lads

Winds it slow, that’s clivor

This poor aad lad has tekken bad

He’ll be back he-a niver
