"Oliver Cromwell"

           
    1. Oliver Cromwell lay buried and dead,
Hee haw, buried and dead.
There grew an old apple tree over his head,
Hee haw, over his head.
   
   
2.
The apples were ripe and ready to fall,
Hee haw, ready to fall.
There came an old woman to gather them all,
Hee haw, gather them all.
   
    3. Oliver rose and he gave her a drop,
Hee-haw, gave her a drop,
Which made the old woman go hippety hop,
Hee-haw, hippety hop.
   
    4. The saddle and bridle, they lie on the shelf,
Hee haw, lie on the shelf.
If you want any more you can sing it yourself,
Hee haw, sing it yourself.
