No. 33
The Wife Wrapt in Wether's Skin
my kum         lam, slam, dam, clear-y - o, . . Jimmy go.
2   When this old man came in from plough, Says : Have you got my breakfast now ?
3   She says: There's a piece of bread upon the shelf; If that don't do, go bake it yourself.
4   This old man went out to his sheep-pen, And soon had off an old wether's skin.
5   He placed it on his old wife's back, And with two sticks went wickety whack.
6   I'll tell your daddy and mammy and all your kin, How you tanned your wether's skin.
