Bloody men
bloody
Welcome Ned Ludd, your case is good
Make Perceval your aim
For by this new law, it is understood
It's death to break a frame

With dextrous skill, the Hosiers kill
For they are quite as bad
And die you must, by this late bill
Go on, my bonny lad!

Twist 'em in by the dozen men, honest and true
From Nottingham, Derby, and Leicestershire, you must
Listen for the lies of the Government spies
When we're taking the oath for you

You might as well be hung for causing death
As breaking a machine
So now bonny lads, your swords unsheath
Make them sharp and keen!

Twist 'em in by the dozen men, honest and true
From Nottingham, Derby, and Leicestershire, you must
Listen for the lies of the Government spies
When we're taking the oath for you

We are ready now your cause to join
Whenever you may call
So make foul blood run clear and fine
Of tyrants great and small!

Twist 'em in by the dozen men, honest and true
From Nottingham, Derby, and Leicestershire, you must
Listen for the lies of the Government spies
When we're taking the oath for you

Twist 'em in by the dozen men, honest and true
From Nottingham, Derby, and Leicestershire, you must
Listen for the lies of the Government spies
When we're taking the oath for you
