Notes
Content: Cover includes 3 scenes illustrating the song: 1) at top right, the man and woman walk to the factory with his arm around hers; 2) she, now a well dressed woman, appears to ignore him; 3) he, now a well-dressed man, has his arms open to her, now of less fortune.
Content: Summary: Two factory workers fall in love; the woman become rich and turns away from the man who sings the chorus entreating her not to ignore him; years go by and he becomes rich while she becomes a pauper; they meet and then she sings the chorus entreating him not to ignore her.
