Twelve Apostles
5.  Six are the abler's angles; Five the bambrew makers;
Four are the bambrews o'er the bow;
Three of them were strivers;
Two of them were lily white babes;
Oh, to my one to my wandering
All alone
Never more shall be so.
6.  Seven are the seven stars fixed in the sky; Six are the abler's angles;
Five are the bambrew makers;
Four are the bambrews o'er the bow;
Three of them were strivers;
Two of them were lily white babes;
Oh, to my OLie to my wandering
All alone
Never more shall be so.
7. (Does not remember.)
8. Nine both bright and shiny;
Seven are the seven stars fixed in the sky;
Six are the abler's angles;
Five the bambrew makers;
Four are the bambrews o'er the bow;
Three of them were strivers;
Two of them were lily white babes;
Oh, to my one to my wandering
All alone
Never more shall be so.
9.  Ten are the Ten Commandments; Nine both bright and shiny;
Seven are the seven stars fixed in the sky
Six are the abler's angles;
Five the bambrew makers;
Four are the bambrews o'er the bow;
Three of them were strivers;
Two of them were lily white babes;
Oh, to my one to my wandering
All alone
Never more shall be so.
