Going to Banbury

Going to Banbury

As I was going to Banbury
Ri fol latitee O
As I was going to Banbury
I saw a line coddlin apple tree
With a ri fol latitee O.

And when the coddlins began to fall
I found five hundred men in all

And one of the men saw was dead
So I sent for a hatchet to open his head

And in his head I found a spring
And seven young salmon a learning to sing

And one of the salmon as big as I
Now do you not think I am telling a lie?
And one of the salmon as big as an elf
If you want any more you must sing it yourself
