Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Christmas Day in the Workhouse
A Lancashire version of yoyrs...
< It was Christmas day in the workhouse
And the snow was raining fast
When a barefooted girl with clogs on
Stood lying in the grass.
We went to the pictures tomorrow
We took a front seat at the back
A lady she gave me an orange
I ate and gave her back. >
Seems even the silliest of rhymes travel well.
