WEILA WAILA

 

And there was an old woman who lived in the wood

   A weila weila waila

There was an old woman who lived in the wood

Down by the river sawya

 

She had a baby three mouths old

 

She had a penknife long and sharp

 

She stuck the penknife long in the baby's heart

 

The more she stuck the more it bled

 

There where three knocks came a-knocking at the door

 

There were three policemen and a man

 

Are you the woman who killed the babe?

 

They took her away and put her in jail

 

They pulled the rope and she got hung

 

Now that was the end of the woman in the woods

   A weila weila waila

And that was the end of the baby too

   Down by the river sawya
