A CARRION crow sat on an oak,
A Fol de riddle, lol de riddle, hi ding do,
Watching a tailor shape his cloak;

Sing heigh ho, the carrion crow,
Fol de riddle, lol de riddle, hi ding do.

Wife, bring me my old bent bow,

Fol de riddle, lol de riddle, hi ding do,
That I may shoot yon carrion crow;

Sing heigh ho, the carrion crow,
Fol de riddle, lol de riddle, hi ding do.

The tailor he shot and missed his mark,

Fol de riddle, lol de riddle, hi ding do,
And shot his own sow quite through the heart ;

Sing heigh ho, the carrion crow,
Fol de riddle, lol de riddle, hi ding do.

Wife, bring brandy in a spoon,

Fol de riddle, lol de riddle, hi ding do,
For our old sow is in a swoon;

Sing heigh ho, the carrion crow,
Fol de riddle, lol de riddle, hi ding do.

ring;

Merry was myself, and merry could I sing ;
With a merry ding-dong, happy, gay, and free,
And a merry sing-song, happy let us be !

Waddle goes your gait, and hollow are your hose ; Noddle goes your pate, and purple is your nose ; Merry is your sing-song, happy, gay, and free, With a merry ding-dong, happy let us be !

Merry have we met, and merry have we been ;
Merry let us part, and merry meet again;
With our merry sing-song, happy, gay, and free
And a merry ding-dong, happy let us be !

LOT-CROSS Buns !

| Hot-cross Buns ! One a penny, two a penny,

Hot-cross Buns !

Hot-cross Buns !

Hot-cross Buns !
If ye have no daughters,

Give them to your sons,

THREE blind mice, see how they run!

They all ran after the farmer's wife, Who cut off their tails with the carving-knife; Did you ever see such fools in your life?

Three blind mice.
