Making Memories, Gallery Oldham

four brothers, three sisters
shilling a week spends
dad was a tailor
all got our ration of spends
all got our spends

couldn’t sponge anything else
had to ration it
don’t let one eat them all
happens in a big family
all got our spends

didn’t buy a lot
four brothers, three sisters
pudding was fruit
slices of apple were all
the sweets after a meal

if it went all at once it was
all your own fault
with eight, they couldn’t afford
to give more to one than another
three sisters, and four.
