Hurrah, Lie! Seed a flea heave a tree, Hurrah, Lie! Seed a flea heave a tree, Well done, fool! Seed a flea heave a tree, Forty miles in the sea; Yore an' ole blind drunkard an' I'm a jolly fool! Seed th' wood cut the axe, Seed the chickens chewin' wax. Seed an eel eat a seal, Seed an apple with nary a peel. Seed a hant climb the stairs, Seed the badman sayin' his prayers. Seed a rat ketch a cat Ef you can tell a yarn that's bigger'n that, From Ethel Park Richardson's book American Mountain Songs (1927) this is one of the few American versions of Martin Said to His Man I've ever encountered.
