I'm looking for the lyrics to a song I heard all the time when I lived in Newfoundland. It was one of those widow-looking-for-her-next-husband plots. The only part I remember is the chorus: the fox and the bear the something and the hare and the birds up in the trees and the pretty little rabbit so engaging in its habit, they've all got a mate but me.
I think she had six husbands and was working on number seven. Thanks ever so much, Wendy Welch Fife, Scotland

THE FOX AND THE HARE
Good Christians all, both great and small
All you that feel inclined
Your care bestowed on a fellow full of gold
I'm almost out of my mind.
All the wives I had, they're all gone and dead
Me love has laboured in vain
I have married, I have buried,
I am very nearly married
And I'm sick from wives in the brain.
The fox and the hare and
The badger and the bear,
The birds in the greenwood treet
All the pretty little rabbits so engaging in their habits
And they all having mates but me.
The first in my page was little Sally Sage

thanks to Alison, there's an abc for the song as sung by Jimmy Crowley in the Fox and the Hare thread
