Smiggey mcguirrel.

I had a son, he came from the war.
With your daurel-lee, dauvel-la-di-de:
He fought in Bull-Run, and he got no pay;
Now he is earning the hod for a shilling a day;
His name was: Nan-rel-Maggy-Nau-rel-
Nic-Nac-Nau-rel-Smig-gey-McGuir-rel- Walk off.

I got out of bed at even O'clock,
With your daurel-lee, daurel-la-di-de;
I told the maid to wind the clock,
And she milk'd the cow from the chimney top;
Her uaine was Nau-rel-Maggy-Nau-rel-
Nic-Nac-Nau-rel-Smig-gey-McGuir-rel- Walk off.

She fell right down upon the grass,
With her datirel-lee, daurel-la-di-de:
She got the croup-croup-croup, and I made a tent
right out of her hoops,
And I brought her to with some turtle soup;
Her name was Nau-rel-Maggy-Nau-rel-
