No. 112
The Drummer and His Wife
2   She told him to milk the crumply cow, For fear she would go dry, dry;
She told him to feed that speckled pig That lay up in the sty.
3   She told him to churn the churn of cream That set up in the frame, frame ;
She told him to watch the pot of fat, Or it'd go up in a flame.
4   She told him to feed that speckled hen, For fear she would go stray, stray;
She told him to remember the spool of thread That she spun was to-day.
5   The drummer went to milk the crumply cow, For fear she would go dry, dry.
She hoist her head and give a snort, And wouldn't let drummer come a-nigh.
* If G be tonic : Mode 3.
