Wella, Wella There was an old woman and she lived in the wood Wella, wella waillia There was an old woman and she lived in the wood Down by the river Sallia She had a baby three month old... She had a pen-knife three foor long... She stuck the knife in the baby's head... Three big knocks came a-knocking at the door Two policemen and a man "Are you the woman what killed the child?..." "I am the woman what killd the child..." The rope got chucked and she got hung... The moral of this story is, Don't stick knives in babies' heads. Child #20 RG apr00
