In the woods there grew a tree

And a fine, fine tree was he.

And on that tree there was a limb

And on that limb there was a branch

And on that branch there was a nest

And in that nest there was an egg

And in that egg there was a bird

And from that bird a feather came

And of that feather was a bed.

And on that bed there was a girl,

And on that girl there was a man,

And from that man there was a seed,

And from that seed there was a boy,

And from that boy there was a man,

And for that man there was a grave,

And from that grave there grew a tree.

In summerisle, summerisle, summerisle, summerisle...
