L ong difficult hard working hours.
I t’s a hard slog on the Thames.
G iving up isn’t allowed.
H appy we’re making our ancestors proud.
T ogather as a union we strike for more money.
E vening, morning and afternoon we work hard.
R unning up and down the river.
M en don’t have time to shiver.
E ven the cold knows that.
N ever underestimate the power of lightermen.
