He were born and raised in Bolton
A honest steeplejack
The hardest working bloke in’t North
A giant in a flat cap
He weren’t one for health and safety
And I worshipped him as a child
‘Cause he’d climb a 200ft chimney
After drinking five pints of mild

His name were Dibnah
They called him Fred Dibnah
Dibnah
They called him Fred Dibnah

With chimneys and traction engines
He’d graft and sweat and toil
He were like your dad or granddad
Tinkering in his shed, getting covered in oil
They’d send for him from all over
And we’d watch him on our screens
And from the top of all them chimneys
What must he have seen?

His name was Dibnah
They called him Fred Dibnah
Dibnah
They called him Fred Dibnah

And we don’t have chimneys any more
‘Cause we don’t have factories any more
No we don’t have chimneys any more
‘Cause we don’t have factories any more

In 2004 he left us
And I think I must have cried
‘Cause on that day, when he passed away
Part of our heritage died

They called him Fred Dibnah
They called him Fred Dibnah
Dibnah
They called him Fred Dibnah




And they don’t make ‘em like that any more
No, they don’t make ‘em like him any more
No they don’t make ‘em like that any more
And they won’t make ‘em like him any more
