We're all met together here to sit and to clack With our glasses in our hands and our work upon our back There's nae a trade among 'em who could mend or could knack If it wasna for the Work O' the Weavers
If it wasna for the weavers wha' would ya do? Ya wouldna hae no cloth tha's made o' wool. Ya wouldna hae no greens, nor your greys, nor your blues If it wasna for the work o' the weavers.
