With one leg in his lap;

My true love lives far from me, Perrie, Merrie, Dixie, Dominie. Many a rich present he sends to me,

Petrum, Partrum, Paradise, Temporie, Perrie, Merrie, Dixie, Dominie.

When the Bible is in the press, no

man it can read; When the wool is on the sheep's back,

there is no thread. Petrum, &c.

What should we have for drink?
