Turn a long down pully down kimo; "I'm sure we'll have cheese, puddin', and souse." Turn a long down pully down kimo.
5.     The old sow's dead and buried in a hole,
Turn a long down pully down kimo, And the little pigs prayed for the old sow's soul, Turn a long down pully down kimo.
Kimo kaly crow Up jumped pully down Pully with a round down Round down pully down kimo.
1.     The carrion crow he sat upon an oak,
And he spied an old tailor a-cutting out a cloak. Heigho! the carrion crow.
2.     The carrion crow he began for to rave, And he called the tailor a lousy knave!
Heigho! the carrion crow.
3.   "Wife, go fetch me my arrow and my bow,
I'll have a shot at that carrion crow." Heigho! the carrion crow.
4.     The tailor he shot, and he missed his mark, But he shot the old sow through the heart.
Heigho ? the carrion crow.
5.   "Wife, go fetch me some treacle in a spoon,
For the old sow's in a terrible swoon!" Heigho! the carrion crow.
