Three Jolly Welchmen And we hunted and we harried and little did we find, A pig in the lane and that we left behind, Look 'ee there! Some said it was a pig, but the second said, "Nay!" Some said it was an elephant with his snout blown away, Look 'ee there! And we hunted and we harried, and little did we find A man in the road, and him we left behind Look 'ee there! Some said it was a man, but the second said "Nay!" Some said it was a monkey with his tail cut away Look 'ee there! A frog in the well... ...a canary bird with his feathers washed away. An owl in an ivy bush... ...the devil, and we all ran away *...A privy in a field, ...a church with the steeple blown away. From Ballads and Songs, Belden. Additional verse (*) RG's memory. A version, called Cape Ann, was published in 1843 as sung by the Hutchinson family. DT #315 RG oct96
