Chorus
Rolling up, rolling down
We'll all get drunk in Tilbury town
Twenty four hours to turn around
And go rolling down the river

When first I saw a TEU
Rolling up, rolling down
I wondered where they stole the crew
To go rolling down the river

Chorus

There's a Tilbury girl called Kettle Jane
Rolling up, rolling down
First on the boil, then off again
She goes rolling down the river

Chorus

She's got a mate called Teapot Anne
Rolling up, rolling down
She gets well brewed, she likes a man
To go rolling down the river

Chorus

By the dockside gate when the work is done
Rolling up, rolling down
You can pick 'em boys one by one
And go rolling down the river

Chorus

But we're the boys to see them through
Rolling up, rolling down
To hell with the Channel and the TEUs
Let's roll down the river
