Your weapons–the mattock, the axe and the spade, The crusher, the mixer, the bucket, the drill, A sledge or a hammer, swung with a will! You — men of Shipshaw– ten thousand and more, You’re working, you’re building, you’re winning the war! Ten thousand warriors, loyal and fine Carrying on behind the battle line! — From “Men of Shipshaw”
