THE TRIANGLE SHIRTWASTE FACTORY

HURRY UP, MEIN KINDER
GOT TO GET TO WORK
TIME TO USE THOSE PRETTY HANDS
TO MAKE ANOTHER SHIRT

THOUGH TODAY IS SHABBOS
THERE CAN BE NO REST
TIMES ARE HARD  NOW, WITH BILLS TO PAY
AND A BABY AT MY BREAST

SO QUICKLY, SHEYNE, RACE
TO WASHINGTON PLACE

MIA PROVIDENZA
FLOWER OF MY HEART
OH, I PRAY WE DIDN’T HAVE
TO SPEND THE DAY APART

SEWING CAMICETTE
'TIL YOUR FINGERS ACHE
HOW I WISH WE DIDN’T NEED
THE MONEY THAT YOU MAKE

SO FRETTA, BELLA, RACE
TO WASHINGTON PLACE

ASHES TO ASCH, AND THEY ALL FALL DOWN
FIERY GEMSTONES FROM A BURNING CROWN
FALLEN ANGELS LINE THE STREETS BELOW
BENT AND BROKEN BY THE RICH MAN’S BLOW

EVERYONE WAS TIRED
NEARLY TIME TO LEAVE
SUDDENLY A FIRE
FROM AN EMBER ON A SLEEVE

ROSE ESCAPED TO SAFETY
BECKY JUMPED, BUT DIED
GUSSIE’S FAMILY CLAIMED THEIR GIRL
THE LAST IDENTIFIED

SO FAST THE FIRE RACED
IN WASHINGTON PLACE

MSSRS. BLANCK AND HARRIS
DO YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT
ARE YOUR DOORS OF MEMORY
LOCKED AND CHAINED UP TIGHT

OR DO YOU REMEMBER
HOW THEY WEPT AND LEAPED
WAS IT WORTH THE PRICE THEY PAID
THE PROFITS THAT YOU REAPED

THE TRUTH YOU NOW MUST FACE
OF WASHINGTON PLACE

ASHES TO ASCH, AND THEY ALL FALL DOWN
FIERY GEMSTONES FROM A BURNING CROWN
FALLEN ANGELS LINE THE STREETS BELOW
BENT AND BROKEN BY THE RICH MAN’S BLOW

WHAT GOOD IS A RICH MAN IF HE HASN’T GOT A HEART
