    "The Song of Factory Worker"

    Red brick building
    With many windows,
    You are like a vampire,
    For wherever I go
    You know I'm coming back to you.
    Youhave held many under your spell,
    Many who have sewed their life away
    Within your walls.
    You say to me,
    "oh, you may leave
    But you will comeback.
    You will miss
    The whir, whir of the machinery,
    The click of the tacker,
    The happy laughter of the girls,
    Telling jokes.
    you will miss the songs
    They sing,
    And the tired-eyed ones,
    Watching the clock.
    The pieceworkers,
    Sewing fast,
    So fast till it make you dizzy
    To watch.
    (they haven't time to look up.)
    And under the sky light,
    The red-haired girl,
    When the sun sets her head aflame.
    You will miss the noise and the bustle and the hurry,
    And you will come back,
    You will see."
    All this and more
    You say tome,
    Red brick building
    With many windows.
