The Old Sow Took the Measles

The Old Sow Took the Measles
(traditional--public domain)

What shall we do with the old sow's tail?
Make a good whip or a bar for the flail.
Bar for the flail or any such thing,
The old sow took the measles and she died in the spring.

What shall we do with the sow's insides?
Make a good batch of sausage hides...

What shall we do with the old sow's feet?
Make a good sauce for anyone to eat...

What shall we do with the old sow's eyes?
Make a good jelly as ever made pies...

What shall we do with the old sow's hide?
Make a good saddle for anyone to ride...

What shall we do with the old sow's stones?
Make a good hassock as ever rolled pones...

What shall we do with the old sow's squeal
That we can neither see nor feel?

With that you can't do a goddam thing,
The old sow took the measles and she died in the spring.
