Yeah, there was Levi
My first son
Await your soul and rise with the sun
Shake off your sloth
And early rise
To pay the mornin'

Sacrifice

Levi circles round my bedside
Normal circles round my bedside
Jacob circles round my bedside
And Judge leans n' circles round my bedside

(They all be circlin' round my bedside)

Yeah, there was Normal
My normal son
He finished life work before the fadin' dawn
I said Normal
Now evenin' falls
Oh sorry, Father
I've been chasin' that moon's

Cloud

Normal circles round my bedside
Jacob circles round my bedside
And slothful Levi circles round my bedside

(Here comes this real son of mine actually)

Now, here's Dumb Jacob
Dumb, not afraid
While those two cowards, with his axe he did made
Hacked up my chair
Where I might lie
Sun and moon, you see people
They are one when nigh nigh

(You see, Judge Ban Lindsey. He came into my little neck of the woods that day. He started walkin' up the hill, he passed Jacob Dumb sittin' down there. My other two sons went down the hill and they each grabbed that bed that Jacob Dumb had done made. They hiked it up the hill. Hiked it passed me layin' on the porch. Hiked it up the stairs. Turned it sideways and placed it in the center of my bedroom. They picked me up, brought me up the stairs, turned me sideways to fit into my bedroom. They laid me on my bed, handmade by Jacob Dumb)

And they each took a corner of this bed
They stuck out their arms
Wrapped their fingers around one another's wrists
And they started doing this

Circle and circle and circle (x14)

Circlin' round my bedside

Levi circles round my bedside
Normal circles round my bedside
And Jacob Dumb he circles round...
