Fragments of final song and text of a play performed in East Bridgford, Notts., recalled by Mr.R.Brown (an attendant at the Brewhouse Yard Museum, Nottingham), as told to him by his grandfather. The record reads;Good mister & Good Master
As You sit round your fire
Remember We poor Plough Boys
Who Plough through mud & mire.
The Mire it is so very deep
The water runs so clear
So put a penny in our box
And a bottle of your best beer.
In comes I the doctorYou a doctor?
What can you cure?
(D) Ipsy, pipsy, palsy, gout
Pains within & pains without
(D) And what's wrong with this Young woman?Plough Boy:
Doctor to Plough Boy:What's wrong with this man?
Well doctor he swallowed a
donkey & cart & can't get
shut of the wheels.
