Tune for Aiken Drum (help | file info or download)

There was a man lived in the moon,
And his name was Aiken Drum.
And he played upon a ladle,
And his name was Aiken Drum.
And his hat was made of good cream cheese,
And his name, etc.
And his coat was made of good roast beef,
And his name, etc.
And his buttons were made of penny loaves,
And his name, etc.
His waistcoat was made of crusts of pies,
And his name, etc.
His breeches were made of haggis bags,
And his name, etc.
There was a man in another town,
And his name was Willy Wood,
And he played upon a raxor,
And his name was Willy Wood.
And he ate up all the good cream cheese,
And his name, etc.
And he ate up all the good roast beef,
And his name, etc.
And he ate up all the penny loaves,
And his name, etc.
And he ate up all the crusts of pies,
And his name, etc.
But he choked himself with the haggis bags,
And there was an end of Willy Wood.
