Hunting a Loaf

Melody -


For Derby it's true, and Nottingham too,
Poor men to the jail they've been taking,
They said that Ned Lud as I understood,
A thousand wide frames has been breaking.

Now is it not bad there's no work to be had,
The poor to be starv'd in their station;
And if they do steal they're strait sent to the jail,
And they're hanged by the laws of the nation.
