  1. mark knopfler'in solo albümü a rigpickers dream'den (2002) bir şarkısı.

    we had no way of staying afloat
    we had to leave on the ferry boat
    economic refugees
    on the run to germany
    we had the back of maggie's hand
    times were tough in geordieland
    we got wor tools and working gear
    and humped it all from newcastle to here

    why aye man, why aye, why aye man
    why aye man, why aye, why aye man

    we're the nomad tribes, travelling boys
    in the dust and dirt and the racket and the noise
    drills and hammers, diggers and picks
    mixing concrete, laying bricks
    there's english, irish, scots, the lot
    united nation's what we've got
    brickies, chippies, every trade
    german building, british-made

    why aye man, why aye, why aye man
    why aye man, why aye, why aye man

    nae more work on maggie's farm
    hadaway down the autobahn
    mine's a portacabin bed
    or a bunk in a nissen hut instead

    there's plenty deutschmarks here to earn
    and german tarts are wunderschoen
    german beer is chemical-free
    germany's alreet with me
    sometimes i miss my river tyne
    but you're my pretty fraulein
    tonight we'll drink the old town dry
    keep wor spirit levels high

    why aye man, why aye, why aye man
    why aye man, why aye, why aye man
