First Person.
They wren, the wren, the king of all birds
On St Stephen's day he was caught in the flood
Although he is small, his family is great,
So, arise Loudlady and give us a treat
A piece of your bread and a drop of your beer
And I'll wish you a happy Christmas and a bright New Year

And in my hand a frying pan
So I think myself a happy wee man.
