Lúra Lára Limba Lock
Five miles I set a clock
I sunk I bunk to marry my dear
Write down a king of grey mare
Higgetty Haggetty black foot

Mama said nobody should
Play with the gipsies in the wood
The wood is dark & grass is green
Here comes Molly dressed in green
She went to the river and she couldn't get across
She paid ten guineas for an old black horse
The horse began to kick & wag his tail
And she sent him off to Sligo Jail.

[Accompanied by hand Clapping]
