You working men of England one moment now attend While I unfold the treatment of the poor upon this land For nowadays the factory lords have brought the labor low And daily are contriving plans to prove our overthrow
So arouse you sons of freedom the world seems upside down ey scorn the poor man as a thief in country and in town
ere’s di erent parts in Ireland it’s true what I do state ere’s hundreds more are starving for they can’t get food to eat And if they go unto the rich to ask them for relief
ey bang the door all in their face as if they were a thief
Alas how altered are the times rich men despise the poor And pay them o without remorse quite scornful at the door And if a man is out of work his Parish pay is small
It’s enough to starve himself his wife his children and all
So to conclude and nish these few verses I have made
I hope to see before too long men for their labor paid
en we’ll rejoice with heart and voice and banish our woes But before we do old England must pay us what she owes.
