Bob Morton and Ken Greenhough of The Union Folk used to do this, I recall that Bob looked very fetching in his head-scarf doing the female role.

The original place (east of Manchester) is called Droylsden, wheer they used t'blacklead th' tramlines. But that story is told of other towns nearby, along with putting the pig on the wall to watch the band go by.

Always bear in mind that you may not have the right spelling for a place name. A quick search via the onsite search engine (link at the top of every page) for droylsden would have done the trick:

DROYLSDEN WAKES (DT entry, lacking full source information)

Lyr/Tune Add: Droylsden Wakes (Forum thread with background information).

Droylsden Wakes

It's Droylsden Wakes, an' we're comin' to town,
To tell you of sommat of great renown;
An' if this owd jade'll let me begin,
aw'll show you how hard an' how fast Aw can spin,

Chorus
So it's three-dy-well, three-dy-well, dan dum dill doe,
So it's three-dy-well, three-dy-well, dan dum dill doe.

Thou brags of thysel, but Aw dunno' think it's true,
For Aw will uphold thee, thy faults aren't a few,
For when thou has done, an' spun very hard,
Of this Aw'm well sure, thy work is ill-marred.

Thou saucy owd jade, thou'd best howd thy tongue,
Or else Aw'll be thumpin' thee ere it be long,
An' if 'at Aw do, thou'rt sure for to rue,
For Aw can ha' mony a one's good as you.

What is it to me who you can have?
Aw shanno' be long ere Aw'm laid i' my grave,
An' when 'at Aw'm dead, an' ha done what I can,
You may find one 'at'll spin as hard as Aw've done.
