Ode to Woolies

Many, many years ago - in Woolies I did work, Miss Smart was the one in charge - from whom we did not shirk! Saturday jobs were all the norm - my friends and I agree.

Many, many years ago - in Woolies I did work,

Miss Smart was the one in charge - from whom we did not shirk!

Saturday jobs were all the norm - my friends and I agree.

The hourly rate was one and nine - with Bank Holidays times three.

The counters were the high sort, good if you were tall,

But much too high for all my friends -

Most of them were small!

We all wanted to work on sweets, cosmetics or the toys,

No-one wanted to be on nails - they should have had the boys!

Our money went a long way - we spent it on pay day.

So Woolies - please don't go - we all want you to stay!
