Children's Songs and Ballads - The Carrion Crow


Of meaner antiquity, perhaps, but no less a favourite with the young, is the amusing; ditty of The Carrion Crow:-

A Carrion Crow sat on an oak,
Fol de riddle, lol de riddle, eye ding do,
Watching a tailor shape his coat
Sing he, sing ho, the old carrion crow,
Fol de riddle, lol de riddle, eye ding do!

Wife, bring me my old bent bow,
Fol de riddle, lol de riddle, eye ding do,
That I may shoot yon carrion crow
Sing he, sing ho, the old carrion crow,
Fol de riddle, lol de riddle, eye ding do!

The tailor shot, and missed his mark,
Fol de riddle, lol de riddle, eye ding do,
But shot the pig right through the heart
Sing he, sing ho, the old carrion crow,
Fol de riddle, lol de riddle, eye ding do.
