At this moment I have a friend standing by me and singing (oww!) the first
verse; as follows:
>From a dear little Lancashrie town
A boy had sailed away
Across the briny spray
To toil in U.S.A.
When the American girls gathered round
and sought his compoany
He said there's only one girl for me
She's a lassie from Lancashire etc. etc.

> Though she dresses in clogs and shawl
> She's the prettiest of them all
> None could be fairer or squarer than Sarah
