There once was a maiden so fair
Who cut all her families hair,
Collected all up in a great big bin
Threw it all over the garden in Spring,
Sat down in the chair for a rest
To watch the birds pick it up for their nest,
But the maiden got angry began to shout
The birds made a mess on her washing she’d just pegged out,
It was dire
all over my best white shirt I wear in the choir,
Them birds can be a pest,
I’ve let them use my hair for their nest.
