"In Good Old Colony Times"

           
    1. In good old colony times,
When we were under the king.
Three roguish chaps fell into mishaps,
Because they could not sing,
   
     

Because they could not sing,
Because they could not sing,
Three roguish chaps fell into mishaps,
Because they could not sing.

   
   
2.
The first he was a miller,
And the second he was a weaver,
And the third he was a little tailor,
Three roguish chaps together.
   
     
Three roguish chaps together,
Three roguish chaps together,
And the third he was a tailor,
Three roguish chaps together.
   
    3. Now the miller he stole corn,
And the weaver he stole yarn,
And the little tailor he stole broadcloth,
To keep these three rogues warm.
   
     
To keep these three rogues warm,
To keep these three rogues warm,
And the little tailor he stole broadcloth, To keep these three rogues warm.
   
    4. The miller got drowned in his dam,
The weaver got hung in his yarn,
And the devil clapped his claw on the little tailor,
With the broadcloth under his arm.
   
     
With the broadcloth under his arm,
With the broadcloth under his arm,
And the devil clapped his claw on the little tailor,
With the broadcloth under his arm.
