Thread Name: Lyr Req: Weela Wallia: 'stuck the penknife in his.
Subject: Lyr Add: WEILIA WALIA
Hi Rosebrook I sing a slight variation on the lyric posted by Lorne, so for what its worth here it is:

There was an old woman and she lived in the wood weilia weilia walia

There was an old woman and she lived in the woods down by the river saulia

She had a baby six months old (2x)

She had a penknife long and sharp (2x)

She stuck the penknife in the baby's head (2x)

There were three loud knocks came a knockin' on the door (2x)

It was two policmen and a special branch man (2x)

Well they put a rope around her neck (2x)

Well they pulled the rope and she got hung (2x)

And that was the end of the woman in the woods weilia weilia walia

And that was the end of the baby too down by the river saulia

Cheers Den
