The Derby Ram


1. As I went down to Derby all on a summer’s day,
‘Twas there I saw the biggest sheep that ever was fed on hay.

And sing tithery i re-oo-ry ann,
Sing tither i o day.

2. The wool upon his back, sir, it reached into the sky.
The eagles built their nest there, and I heard the young ones cry. Refrain

3. The wool upon his legs, sir, it dragged into the ground.
‘Twas sold there in Derby for forty thousand pounds. Refrain
