Long Time Ago Lyrics
Traditional

On the lake where droop'd the willow
Long time ago,
Where the rock threw back the billow
Brighter than snow. 
Dwelt a maid beloved and cherish'd
By high and low,
But with autumn leaf she perished
Long time ago.
Rock and tree and flowing water
Long time ago,
Bird and bee and blossom taught her 
Love's spell to know.
While to my fond words she listen'd
Murmuring low,
Tenderly her blue eyes glisten'd
Long time ago.

I Bought Me a Cat
The Cat - Bart Van Der Leck

I feed my wife in yon green tree

I bought me a baby, and my baby pleased me
I feed my baby in yon green tree

VERSE 3
I bought me a cow, my cow pleased me
I feed my cow in yon green tree

VERSE 4
I bought me a calf, my calf pleased me
I feed my calf in yon green tree

VERSE 5
I bought me a hog, my hog pleased me
I feed my hog in yon green tree

VERSE 6
I bought me a dog, my dog pleased me
I feed my dog in yon green tree

VERSE 8
I bought me a rooster an' my rooster pleased me
I feed my rooster in yon green tree

VERSE 9
My wife said, soke, soke
Cow said, moo, moo
The calf said, baaf, baaf
The baby said, waa, waa
The dog said, bow-wow, bow-wow
The hog said, grify-graf, grify-graf
The cat said, fiddle-li-fee
The hen said, shem-shak, shem-shack
The rooster said, quaw-shee
If you ever find another rooster like me
Feed your rooster too
