Lyrics

(Folk song)

1. My father he left me three acres of land,
Sing ivy, sing ivy!
My father he left me three acres of land,
Sing holly, go whistle and ivy.

2. I ploughed it one morning with a ram’s horn,
Sing ivy, sing ivy!
And sowed it all over with one peppercorn,
Sing holly, go whistle and ivy.

3. I harrowed it next with a bramble bush
Sing ivy, sing ivy!
And reaped it all with my little penknife,
Sing holly, go whistle and ivy.
