"The Eight-Hour Day" (karaoke)

"The Eight-Hour Day" (sheet music)

We’re brave and gallant miner boys

Who work down underground.

For courage and good nature,

No finer can be found.

We work both late and early

And get but little pay

To support our wives and children

In free Amerikay.


If Satan took the blacklegs,

I’m sure ‘twould be no sin.

What peace and happiness ‘twould be

For us poor workingmen.

Eight hours we’d have for working;

Eight hours we’d have for play;

Eight hours we’d have for sleeping

In free Amerikay.
