N OW Brigham Young is a Mormon bold, And a leader of the roaring rams, And shepherd of a lot of fine tub sheep And a lot of pretty little lambs. Oh, he lives with his five and forty wives, In the city of the Great Salt Lake, Where they breed and swarm like hens on a farm And cackle like ducks to a drake.
Chorus: Oh Brigham, Brigham Young, It's a miracle how you survive, With your roaring rams and your pretty little
lambs And your five and forty wives.
Number forty-five is about sixteen,
Number one is sixty and three;
And they make such a riot, how he keeps them quiet
Is a downright mystery to me.
For they clatter and they chaw and they jaw, jaw,
jaw, And each has a different desire; It would aid the renown of the best shop in town To supply them with half they desire.
