"Certains disent que l'homme est fait de boue,
Un pauvre homme fait de muscles et de sang
Des muscles et du sang, de la peau et des os,
Un esprit faible et un dos fort
On charge 16 tonnes,
Et qu'est-ce qu’on obtient ? ..."

"Sixteen Tons" is a song about the life of a coal miner, first recorded in 1946 by American country singer Merle Travis and released on his box set album Folk Songs of the Hills the following year. A 1955 version recorded by Tennessee Ernie Ford reached number one in the Billboard charts, while another version by Frankie Laine was released only in the United Kingdom, where it gave Ford's version competition.
The Platters recorded an early cover in 1957.
