lyrics

As Tories walk by
What do they see?
As they look down
Their nose at me,
Is it someone
Standing forlorn?
Perhaps ever wishing
She'd never been born?

Well it just goes to show
How wrong you can be.
The proud person
Standing there was me.
I wasn't collecting
For rifles and guns,
Just milk and flour
And cheap bread buns.

It was the winter of 84,
Much too cold to go outside the door
So I stood there clutching my tin
Hoping passers by would put money in.

Tories said our actions weren't right
Backed up with the media's might
Well I'm not a thug
Or the enemy within
I'm just a miner's wife
Clutching a tin,
Clutching a tin,
Clutching a tin.
