48._THE CARRION CROW.
1 A carrion crow sat on an oak; Hey derry down deny dicjlo! Watching a tailor mending his cloak; Caw ! caw! the carrion crow, Hey derry down derry dido!
2   O wife, O wife, bring here my bow;
Hey derry down derry dido! That I may shoot this carrion crow; Caw! caw! the carrion crow, Hey derry down derry dido!
3   The tailor he fired, but missed his mark;
Hey derry down derry dido! For he shot his old sow right bang through the heart; Caw! caw! the carrion crow, Hey derry down derry dido!
4   O wife, O wife, bring brandy in a spoon;
Hey derry down derry dido; For our old sow is down in a swoon; Caw! caw! the carrion crow, Hey derry down derry dido!
5   The old sow died, and the bell did toll;
Hey derry down derry dido! And the little pigs prayed for the old sow's soul; Caw! caw ! the carrion crow, Hey derry down derry dido!
