WEILA, WEILA

 

There was an old woman and she lived in the woods
Weile, weile, waile;
There was an old woman and she lived in the woods,
Down by the river Saile

She had a baby three months old
Weile, weile, waile
She had a baby three months old
Down by the river Saile;

She had a penknife long and sharp,
Weile, weile, waile
She had a penknife long and sharp
Down by the river Saile;

She stuck her penknife in the baby's heart
Weile, weile, waile
She stuck the penknife in the baby's heart
Down by the river Saile;

There were three loud knocks coming knocking on the door
 Weile, weile, waile
There were three loud knocks coming knocking on the door
 Down by the river Saile;

Three policemen and a special rancheman
Weile, weile, waile
Three policemen and a special rancheman
Down by the river Saile;

They pulled the rope around her neck
Weile, weile, waile
They pulled the rope around her neck
Down by the river Saile;

They pulled the rope and she was hung
Weile, weile, waile
They pulled the rope and she was hung
Down by the river Saile;

And that was the end of the woman in the woods
Weile, weile, waile
And that was the end of the baby too
Down by the river Saile.
