AbstractHistoryArchive Description

A parody of the one-time popular Lancashire song 'Clogs and Shawl.' The lines reproduced are :

She wore clogs and a shawl

Only clogs and a shawl

If that's all she wore

She looked fine I'm sure

If she took off her shawl

She'd have clogs on - that's all

'Twould make me feel dizzy

If I looked at Lizzy

In only her clogs and shawl.
