THE CARRION CROW.
2. Come,wife! come bring my arrow and my bow,
Fol de rol.de rol,derol,de ri do!
Come,wife! come bring my arrow and my bow,
For I want to shoot yon carrion crow.
Hi, Ho, poor old crow! &c. 3.
The tailor he shot but he missed his mark,
Fol de rol,de rol,derol,de ri do! The tailor he shot but he missed his mark, And he shot a poor old sow right through the heart, Hi,Ho,poor old crowl&c.
4. Come wife! come bringme some treacle in a spoon,
Fol de rol.de rol.de rol.de ri do!
Come wife! come bring me some treacle in a spoon,
For I think the poor old sow's fallen in a swoon,
Hi, Ho,poor old crow! &c. 5. But the old sow died and the bells did toll,
Fol de rol.de rol.de rol.de ri do!
But the old sow died and the bells did toll,
And the little pigs prayed for the old sow's soul,
Hi,Ho,poor old crow! 4c.
