The Three Ravens (5)

Three black crows sat on a tree
     Ca beelya geelya gaw ye
And they were black as crows could be
     Ca beelya geelya gaw ye

One black crow says unto his mate
What shall we do for something to eat?

An old red horse in yonder lane
Who very lately has been slain

We'll pick his eyes out one by one
And pick the meat from off his bones *

And eat its flesh until it's gone.

Collected by Creighton and Senior from William Nelson,
Nova Scotia, 1950
