Weile Waile

There was an old woman who lived in the woods Willa, Willa Whya;
There was an old woman who lived in the woods, Down by the river Soya

She had a baby(pr babby) three months old Willa, Willa Whya;
She had a baby three months old Down by the river Soya;

She had a pen-knife three foot long, Willa, Willa Whya;
She had a pen-knife three foot long, Down by the river Soya;

She stuck the knife in the baby's Head Willa, Willa Whya;
The more she stuck it the moreit bled Down by the river Soya;

Three big knocks(knocking on nearst bit of wood) came knocking at the door Willa, Willa Whya;
Three policemen and man Down by the river soya;
(yeah yeah I know it dosn't scan or rhyme, but that's that makes it funny)

(gruff voice)Are you the woman what killed the child?Willa, Willa Whya;
Are you the woman what killed the child down by the river Soya?

(trembly old lady voice,with a touch of defiance)I am the woman what killed the child Willa, Willa Whya;
I am the woman what killed the child down by the river Soya;

The rope got chucked and she got HUNG: Willa, Willa Whya;
The rope got chucked and she got down by the river Soya;

The moral of this story is Willa, Willa Whya;
Don't stick Knives in babbys heads down by the river Soya;

Regards Ted
