My father he died but I can’t tell you how.
He left me six horses to follow my plough.
With a whim, wham, wabble ho!
Jack’s lost his saddle oh!
Blossy boys, bubble oh!
Over the brow.
I sold my six horses and bought me a cow.
I hoped to make a fortune but didn’t know how.
I sold my cow and bought me a calf.
I never made a bargain but I lost the better half.
I sold my calf and bought me a cat
To lie down before the fire and warm its little back.
I sold my cat and bought me a mouse
But she fired her tail and burnt down my house.
