Doffin' Mistress

Oh do you know her or do you not
This new doffin' mistress we have got
Oh, Bertha Wallace it is her name
And she helps her doffers at every frame

  Fol de ri fol ra
  Fol de ri fol ray

On Monday morning when she comes in
She hangs up her coat on the highest pin
Turns around just to greet her friends
Crying, "Hi there, doffers, tie up your ends"

Sometimes the boss he look in the door
"Tie up your ends, doffers," he will roar
"Tie our ends we surely do,
But for Bertha Wallace and not for you"
Oh, Bertha Wallace are you going away?
Will it be tomorrow, will it be today
Are you going for to break our hearts
For there's no one here for to take our parts

Oh do you know her or do you not
This new doffin' mistress we have got
Bertha Wallace it is her name
And she helps her doffers at every frame

recorded by Frankie Armstrong on The Music Plays So Grand
