Chumbawamba - The diggers song



Tekst piosenki:

You noble diggers all stand up now, stand up now
   You noble diggers all stand up now
   The wasteland to maintain sin (?) cavaliers by name
   Your digging does maintain and persons all defame
   Stand up now, stand up now
   Your houses they pull down stand up now, stand up now
   Your houses they pull down, stand up now
   Your houses they pull down to fright your men in town
   But the gentry must come down and the poor shall wear the crown
   Stand up now diggers all
   With spades and hoes and plows stand up now, stand up now
   With spades and hoes and plows, stand up now
   Your freedom to uphold sin (?) cavaliers are bold
   To kill you if they could and rights from you to hold
   Stand up now diggers all
   The gentry are all round stand up now, stand up now
   The gentry are all round stand up now
   The gentry are all round on each side the are found
   Their wisdom so profound to cheat us of our ground
   Stand up now stand up now
   The lawyers they conjoin stand up now stand up now
   The lawyers they conjoin stand up now
   To rescue they advise, such fury they devise, the devil in them lies
   And hath blinded both their eyes
   Stand up now, stand up now
   The clergy they come in stand up now, stand up now
   The clergy they come in stand up now
   The clergy they come in and say it is a sin
   That we should now begin our freedom for to win
   Stand up now diggers all
   \'Gainst lawyers and \'gainst priests stand up now stand up now
   \'Gainst lawyers and \'gainst priests stand up now
   For tyrants they are both, even flat against their oath
   To grant us they are loathe free meat and drink and cloth
   Stand up now diggers all
   The club is all their law, stand up now stand up now
   The club is all their law, stand up now
   The club is all their law, to keep all men in awe
   That they no vision saw to maintain such a law
   Stand up now diggers all
