His Faither Deed/ and Left Him a Horse His faither deed And left him a horse, A bonny little horse That gaed trot, trot, trot! Wing, wing waddelery, Jake sing saddelery, Little boy waddelery Under the broo! He sellt the horse, And he bocht a coo, A bonny little coo That said "Moo, moo, moo!" He sellt the coo, And he bocht a soo, A bonny little soo That said "Grumph, grumph, grumph!" ________________________________________________________ Montgomerie SC (1948), 51 (no. 51). Cf. ODNR 164 (no. 156), "My father he died, but I can't tell you how"; the first text cited by the Opies is in Gammer Gurton's Garland, 1810, with chorus With my wing wang waddle oh, Jack sing saddle oh, Blowsey boys bubble oh, Under the broom.
