Embedded text or transcriptWhen England was "merrie", apprentices were want to sing at their work.
And we seem to have heard of jolly young watermen
Yo-ho, Yo-ho, Yo-ho, Yo-ho!
We are supposed to go about our affairs sadly now.
But is it so? - It is our experience that ticket clippers invariably whistle at work.
And bus conductors frequently do the same.
