The Wife Wrapt in Wether's Skin
2   She put a cold slice on the shelf:
If you want any more you can get it yourseif.
3   The man went out to his sheep-fold, And caught the wether tough and old.
4  He threw the skin round his wife's back, And that old sheep's hide he did whack.
5   The wife cried out unto her kin : He's beating me on my bare skin.
6   The man he grinned and he replied: I'm only tanning my old sheep's hide.
