"Sing Ivy"

       
  1. My father he left me three acres of land,
Sing ivy, sing ivy!
My father he left me three acres of land,
Sing holly, go whistle and ivy.
 
 
2.
I ploughed it one morning with a rams horn,
Sing ivy, sing ivy!
And sowed it all over with one peppercorn,
Sing holly, go whistle and ivy.
 
  3. I harrowed it next with a bramble bush,
Sing ivy, sing ivy!
And reaped it all with my little penknife,
Sing holly, go whistle and ivy.
 
  4. The mice for me, carried it into the barn,
Sing ivy, sing ivy!
And there I threshed it with a goose quill,
Sing holly, go whistle and ivy.
 
  5. The cat she carried it unto the mill,
Sing ivy, sing ivy!
And the miller he said that he'd work with a will,
Sing holly, go whistle and ivy.
