The great ships

In the city of Glesga ‘twas aye oan the kerds
If ye lived near the river ye’d work in the yerds
The first thing I saw when I opened my eyes
Were the muckle great cranes that reached up tae the skies

Chorus:

Where we built the great ships of iron and steel
The Lizzies, the Mary, we built them right here
We built the great ships, the pride o’ the sea
But noo there is nae work for me
And who wid believe that we built the great ships?

 

At the end o’ the forties apprenticed was I
Tae the cream of the welders by the name o’ MacKay
“Ye’ve twa lugs and ane gob so listen, nae lip
And I’ll show youse young lads how build the great ships.”

Chorus

There’s scarcely a ship noo and blessed few men
As the river runs silent trough Silicon Glen
For an auld clapped oot weld er ye’ll no get much thanks
Noo there’s fish in the river and chips oan its banks

Chorus
