[Verse 1]
    A       
The rain is falling
on the site,
     D              A
 the tea's upon the brew,
      A            
We're sittin' on 
         D 
our arseholes
      E
 with bugger-all to do.
   D           
Outside our picks 
and shovels lads,
       A            E
 they slowly rust away.
      A                 D     
We're rained off and contented
    E             A
 on four pounds a day.
[Chorus 1]
A                   
Four pounds a day my 
          D               A
lads and nothing much to do,
   A                D      
No trouble from the foreman 
      E
he's in the union too.
     D                     
Some want the rain to go to
          A                E
 Spain we want the rain to stay.
      A                 D     
We're rained off and contented
    E             A
 on four pounds a day.
[Verse 2]
     A                   
It's early in the morning,
     D              A
 we start at ten o'clock,
   A                  D        
We search the skies impatiently,
    E
 Bejays! I felt a drop.
    D                        
The can lads are on bonus and
      A                 E
 each brew means better pay.
      A                 D     
We're rained off and contented 
    E             A
on four pounds a day.
[Chorus 2]
A                        
Four pounds a day my lads
     D               A
 and nothing much to do,
   A                D      
No trouble from the foreman 
      E
he's in the union too.
     D                     
Some want the rain to go to
          A                E
Spain we want the rain to stay,
      A                 D     
We're rained off and contented
    E             A
 on four pounds a day.

[Verse 3]
   A                        
So Freddie get the cards out,
      D              A
 the racing page as well,
    A             D       
And as for the contractors 
    E
we hope they go to hell.
   D        
It looks as if the 
rain's set in,
     A                E
 we shan't do much today.
     A            D    
What matter if on Friday 
     E            A
we all draw our pay.
[Chorus 3]
A                            
Four pounds a day my lads and 
 D               A
nothing much to do,
   A                D      
No trouble from the foreman
      E
 he's in the union too.
     D                     
Some want the rain to go to 
          A                E
Spain we want the rain to stay.
      A                 D     
We're rained off and contented 
    E             A
on four pounds a day.
