Bargees March Away by Sue Lee and John Meleady All you boatmen have a care As you travel here and there To earn your living with your boat and butty For you are British too And this war's being fought for you So come on lads, stand up for King and Country! So bargee's one and all Come and answer to the call Can you deny your country now she needs you? Tho' you are scorned we know And considered very low In uniform, your mother wouldn't know you! For we are worker's too And have sweated just like you But when this war's done, for us, life will be better So leave your boats today And with us march away To fight the bloomin' armies of the Kaiser So it's come on lads away! And enlist with us today You'll regret it if your name's not in this story For it's to the front we go It'll take a week or so 'Til we march home with medals and with Glory! Recorded on :
