He laid the skin on his wife's back
And he made the stick go whickety whack.
"I'll tell my father and all his kin How you this quarrel did begin."
" You may tell your father and all your kin How I have thrashed my fat wether's skin."
Sweet William came whistling in from the plow, Says, "0 my dear wife, is my dinner ready now?"
She drew her table and spread her board,
And 'twas "O my dear husband," with every word.
And now they live free from all care and strife, And now she makes William a very good wife.
A little old man lived in the west,
Dandoo, dandoo A little old man lived in the west,
Clamadore clash may clings A little old man lived in the west, He had a little wife that was none of the best.
And a lambo scrambo churum churum
Calla may clash may clings.
This little old man came in from his plow, Saying, "Honey have you got my breakfast now?"
