Sunderland Boys making all the noise
Sunderland Boys making all the noise
Oh yeah, oh yeah.

Young man working on a crane in the shipyard
Looking all around, looking down town
Looking at the old man
Living on the dole, man - living in a limbo.

Upside, downside, looking at the outside
Running with the tide, better run a mile
Bet a crooked dollar
On the dog with the crooked smile blow it in a disco.

Sunderland Boys making all the noise
Sunderland Boys making all the noise
Oh yeah, oh yeah.

Government's saying that the poor relation
Is getting better off than the whole damn nation
Look out, they're gonna
Put us on a reservation.

Sunderland Boys making all the noise
Sunderland Boys making all the noise
Oh yeah, oh yeah.

Government's saying that the poor relation
Is getting better off than the whole damn nation
Look out, they're gonna
Put us on a reservation.

Chorus: 6 x then fade
Sunderland Boys making all the noise
Sunderland Boys making all the noise
Oh yeah, oh yeah.
