|Title:||Cotton is King!|
John Bull kneeling, on an American slave, before a bale of cotton dressed as a king. The caption "Cotton is King!" appears above the image and the lyrics "Old England is mighty; Old England is free, she boasts that she ruleth the waves of the sea ; (but between you and I, that's all fiddle-de-dee;) She cannot, O Cotton! She cannot rule thee. Lo! Manchesters lordling thy greatness shall own, And yield more to thee than he would to the Throne: For before thee shall bend his fat marrow-bone,And dead be his ear to the live chattels groan."
