Don't forget your Shovel

Christy Moore

 GC
    Don't forget your shovel if you want to go to work.
 G
   Oh don't forget your shovel if you want to go to work.
 C
   Don't forget your shovel if you want to go to work
 D
Or you'll end up where you came from like the rest of us
 DG
   Digging, digging, digging. Ow di liddle do.
And don't forget your shoes and socks and shirt and tie and all.
Don't forget your shoes and socks and shirt and tie and all.
Mr Murphy's afraid you'll make a claim if you take a fall.
How's it goin' - Not too bad - Ow di liddle do.
And we want to go to heaven but we're always diggin' holes.
We want to go to heaven but we're always diggin' holes.
Yeah we want to go to heaven but we're always diggin' holes.
Well there's one thing you can say - we know where we are going.
Any chance of a start* - No - OK - Ow di liddle do.
And if you want to do it - don't you do it again the wall.
If you want to do it - don't you do it again the wall.
Never seen a toilet on a building site at all.
There's a shed up in the corner where they won't see you at all.
Mind your sandwiches.
Enoch Powell will give us a job, diggin' our way to Annascaul.
Enoch Powell will give us a job, diggin' our way to Annascaul.
Enoch Powell will give us a job, diggin' our way to Annascaul.
And when we're finished diggin' there they'll close the hole and all.
 D
Now there's six thousand five hundred and fifty-nine Paddies
over there in London all trying to dig their way back to Annascaul
and very few of them boys is going to get back at all
 DG
- I think that's terrible.         
Don't forget your shovel if you want to go to work.
Don't forget your shovel if you want to go to work.
Oh, don't forget your shovel if you want to go to work.
Or you'll end up where you came from like the rest of us
Digging, digging, digging. Ow di liddle doooooooooooooh.
