Old Mother Shipton

Old Mother Shipton

Carriages without horses shall go
Around the world thoughts shall fly
In the twinkling of an eye
In the air men shall be seen
In white in black in green
Iron in the water shall float
As easily as a wooden boat
Fire and water shall wonders do
England shall at last admit a Jew
The World then to an end shall come
In one thousand nine hundred ninety-one

recited prophesies collected from Luke Stanley by Peter Kennedy
compare to Nostradamas, another seer's song
recorded on Folksongs of Britain 10
