Lyrics of McAlpine's Fusiliers

As down the glen came McAlpine's men
With their shovels slung behind them
'Twas in the pub that they drank the sub
And up in the spike you'll find them
They sweated blood and they washed down mud with pints and quarts of beer
And now we're on the road again with McAlpine's fusiliers
I stripped to the skin with Darky Flynn
Way down upon the Isle of Grain
With the Horseface Toole then I knew the rule
No money if you stop for rain
McAlpine's God was a well filled hod
Your shoulders cut to bits and seared
And woe to he who to looks for tea with McAlpine's fusiliers
I remember the day that the Bear O'Shea fell into a concrete stairs
What the Horseface said when he saw him dead
Well it wasn't what the rich call prayers
Well my navvy short with the one retort that reached unto my ears
When the going is rough well you must be tough with McAlpine's fusiliers
I've worked till the sweat as had me bet with Russian Czech and Pole
On shuddering jams up in the hydro dams
Or underneath the Thames in a hole
I grafted hard and I've got me cards
And many a ganger's fist across me ears
If you pride your life don't join by Christ with McAlpine's fusiliers
