Come and I Will Sing You

Come and I Will Sing You

Come and I will sing you
    What will you sing me?
I will sing you ten-O
    What will the ten be?
Ten, the ten commandments
Nine, the bright-eyed shiners
Eight, the Gabriel angels
Seven, the seven stars under the sky
Six, the six bol wagers
Five, the flem boys under the bush
Four, the gospels creatures
Three of the were drivers
Two of them were lilly-white boys
Clothed all in green-O
One, the one, lived all alone
Forever more shall be so
