V ile and dirty, smelly and smoky were the streets
I nside the mill where thread was made
C hildren worked from dawn till dusk
T oo much work for kids like us
O ver the hills one hundred miles away
R uled Queen Victoria from her royal palace
I n Her Majesty's home where servants worked day after day
A ll too much for workers like us
N o electricity just us people around
S o very long ago.
