Lyrics:

strikes
I’m not gonna let you slip away
Slipway, no

Feels like we are lucky strikes
I’m not gonna lose you
Not gonna lose you, no, no!


I don’t know what
your old man good to see you walking in these boots one day,
And take your place among the men who work upon the slipway.

These dead man's boots,
the length of the task before us,
Think on that ship on the slipway they can't ignore us.
It's what he would have wanted, he'll not be disappointed,
Each
When they see that bugger finished on the slipway,
All the hardship's soon forgot and we'll cheer as like as not,
And the bairns'll wave their Union
the old slipways
In the dock so dear to me
 
Dark is the night
I need a guiding light to keep me
From foundering on the rocks
 
My only prayer 
Is
the old slipways
In the dock so dear to me
 
Dark is the night
I need a guiding light to keep me
From foundering on the rocks
 
My only prayer 
Is
The rock you stood upon
Is broken up and gone
Hey baby, who's your baby now
On the slipway of your dream
Stands someone else's scheme
Hey baby,
fired skywards and keel blocks away 
Meet the star of the white star show.

In sixty-two seconds the slipway was clear
A deafening roar split the sky.
your hat put it on my head
Said you look pretty in red
Lets go out the back maybe we can slipway
We can come back here any day

You said come with me
TRIPPING FAST FROM ALL OUR YESTERDAYS
TRYING TALK BUT WORDS JUST SLIPWAY
TOO FAR GONE IS JUST TOO LATE FOR US?

YOU TOLD ME WE GOT BETTER DAYS
on an M1 slipway
You and other country folk board the Coachway day return
Say hello then goodbye to the big smoke
What we'll do to survive may be killing us
stayed to watch
The Sunset and you realise
There's no bus home

When you're standing on the slipway
And you still can't see the sea
And you have to walk
Child head, baby brain
On the slipway, bluffed again
Your tide is out, your blinds, (ah ship of fools)
Your blinds are drawn
Sailor fools are born
of plan
Whatever you say

Just let the sun set over the slipway
As the last boat comes down
Always knew we were close to an ending
But I just couldn't work
