Work, Tibet; work, Annot; work, Margerie; Sew, Tibet; knit, Annot; spin, Margerie; Let us see who will win the victory. Ye sleep but we do not, that shall we try; Your fingers be numb, our work will not lie. I will notI cannotno more can I: Then give we all over, and there let it lie. Nicholas Udall.The Work Girls song in Royster Doister.
Work, work, work, Till the brains begins to swim; Work, work, work, Till the eyes are heavy and dim! Seam and gusset, and band, Band and gusset and seam, Till over the buttons I fall asleep, And sew them on in a dream! T. Hood.The Song of the Shirt.
