" No, I did n't bring you any money, Money to pay your fine, But I just came here to see you die Upon this hangman's line."
" Hangman, hangman, slack on the line, Slack on the line a little while. I think I see my mother coming With money to pay my fine.
" Oh, mother, mother, did you bring me any money, Money to pay my fine? Or did you just come here to see me die Upon this hangman's line? "
" No, I did n't bring you any money, Money to pay your fine, But I just came here to see you die Upon this hangman's line."
u Hangman, hangman, slack on the line, Slack on the line a Httle while; For I think I see my brother coming With money to pay my fine.
" Oh, brother, brother, did you bring me any money, Money to pay ray fine? Or did you just come here to see me die Upon this hangman's line? "
u No, I did n't bring you any money, Money to pay your fine, But I just came here to see you die Upon this hangman's line."

" No, I did n't bring you any money, Money to pay your fine, But I just came here to see you die Upon this hangman's line."
