Wha Saw the Cotton Spinners

Wha Saw the Cotton Spinners
     Wha saw the Cotton-spinners?
       Wha saw them gaun awa'?
     Wha saw the Cotton-spinners
       Sailing frae the Broomielaw?
     Some o' them had boots an' stockin's,
       Some o' them had nane ava;
     Some o' them had umbrellas
       For to keep the rain awa'.
     Ford CR 32; said to be earlier than the stanzas on the
     Forty-Second regiment (see next item).
