HENRY MY SON

Where have you been all the day, Henry my son?
Where have you been all the day, my currant bun?
In the woods, dear mother In the woods, dear mother
Mother be quick I got to be sick and lay me down to die.

What did you do in the woods all day,Henry my boy?
What did you do in the woods all day, my saveloy?
Ate, dear mother. Ate, dear mother.
Mother be quick I got to be sick and lay me down to die.

What did you eat in the woods all day, Henry my son?
What did you eat in the woods all day my pretty one?
Eels, dear mother. Eels, dear mother.
Mother be quick I got to be sick and lay me down to die.

What color were those eels, Henry my boy?
What color were those eels, my pride and joy
Green and yeller. Green and yeller.
Mother be quick I got to be sick and lay me down to die.

Those eels were snakes, Henry my son.
Those eels were snakes, my pretty one.
Urgh, dear mother. Urgh, dear mother.
Mother be quick I got to be sick and lay me down to die.
