"She can milk a mulie cow if her mammie shows her how. She's a young thing but can't leave her mammie."

POOR ROBIN
Poor Robin was dead and lay in his grave,
Lay in his grave, lay in his grave, Poor Robin was dead and lay in his grave,
OOOO.
They planted an apple tree over his head,
Over his head, over his head, They planted an apple tree over his head,
0 0 00.
When the apples were ripe and ready to fall,
Ready to fall, ready to fall, When the apples were ripe and ready to fall,
0 0 00.
An old woman came and gathered them up, Gathered them up, gathered them up,
An old woman came and gathered them up, 0000.
Poor Robin jumped up and gave her a thump, Gave her a thump, gave her a thump.
