Tarriers

Posted by Lotg on July 26, 2003

My stepdaughter has to learn a song for her school choir called 'Drill ye Tarriers'. The first words are... "Ev'ry morning at seven o'clock, there's a hundred tarriers workin' on the rock. The boss come along and he says, "Keep still" Come down heavy on that cast iron drill."...., etc.

I told her to look 'tarrier' up in the dictionary and she couldn't find it.

So what does 'tarrier' mean?
