Lyrics by Mary Brooksbank

lyrics

Oh dear me, the mill is running fast, the day long
Shifters, never can get no rest, my poor wee one
Oh dear me, shifting bobbins coarse and fine
Shifters, fairly how they make ye work for your ten and nine
My poor wee one - i wish the day was done

Oh dear me, the world is ill divided in twain
Shifters and those that work the hardest have the least to gain
All my days, spinning warp and weft and twine
How'm I to feed and clad my bonnie when they give me ten and nine
My poor wee one - i wish the day was done

Oh dear me, the mill is running fast, the day long
Shifters, never can get no rest, my poor wee one
Oh dear me, shifting bobbins coarse and fine
Shifters, fairly how they make ye work for your ten and nine
My poor wee one - i wish the day was done
My poor wee one - i wish the day was done

Oh dear me, the world is ill divided in twain
Shifters and those that work the hardest have the least to gain
All my days, spinning warp and weft and twine
How'm I to feed and clad my bonnie when they give me ten and nine
My poor wee one - i wish the day was done
My poor wee one - i wish the day was done
