The Lyrics

*Arthur Scargill was British Mining Union leader who took on the Government....and lost!
In the event that I am never set free
I would dearly like you all to see,
Why I've spent twenty years in this stinking jail.

Can you see my wife, Mr Bloggs?
Can you tell her what it's like on the inside?
But don't talk too fast as she's not very bright
Mr Bloggs.

We worked all hours for very little dosh.
While the mine owners became rather posh.
So we asked if we could have a little rise,
They reacted with resentment and surprise.

Can you see my life, Mr Bloggs?
Can you see what it's like on the inside?
Please don't talk too loud for they will flog my hide
Mr Bloggs.

The bosses answered "Will we 'eck as like"
And so all of the miners went on strike.
Mr Scargill said we'd down the Government
I wonder where old Arthur went....

Did you see my life, Mr Bloggs?
Did you tell our sons on the outside?
Don't talk too loud, the Government won a landslide
Mr Blogg-og-og-og-oggs.
