W: W:I spied one amongst them more fairer than any, W:Her cheeks like the red rose that none could excel, W:Her skin like the lily that grows in yon valley, W:And she was the hard working factory girl. W: W:I stepped up beside her to view her more closely, W:When on me she cast such a look of disdain. W:"Oh, young man, have manners and do not come near me, W:For although I'm a poor girl I think it no shame." W: W:"It's not for to scorn you, fair maid I adore you, W:But grant me one favour, say where do you dwell?" W:"Kind Sir, you'll excuse me, for now I must leave you, W:For yonder's the sound of my factory bell." W: W:"I have land I have houses, I adorned them with ivory, W:I have gold in my pockets and silver as well, W:And if you'll come with me, it's a lady I'll make you, W:And no more may you heed yon factory bell." W: W:With these words she turned and with that she had left me, W:And all for her sake I'll go wander away, W:And in some deep valley, where no one shall know me, W:I shall mourn for the sake of my factory girl.
