John Moulden Origins: Factory Girl (27) RE: factory girl 26 Feb 01

Beware; the song sung by Rita Connelly, though I don't know her performance, is probably the Irish traditional one which commonly begins:

"As I went a-walking one fine summer's morning
The birds in the branches did whistle and sing
The laddies and lasses together were sporting
Going down to the factory their work to begin.

It's well known in different versions by Sarah Makem and Margaret Barry.
