lyrics

My father had an acre of land
Sing hey ho sing ivy
My father had an acre of land
Whistling holly and ivy
Ey ho ivy ey ho ivy

He ploughed it with a team of rats
Sing hey ho sing ivy
He ploughed it with a team of rats
Whistling holly and ivy
Ey ho ivy ey ho ivy

He sowed it with a pepper pot
sing hey ho etc

He harrowed it with a fine tooth comb
sing hey ho etc

He rolled it with a rolling pin
sing hey ho etc

He reaped it with a butter knife
sing hey ho etc

He threshed it with his Sunday toupe
sing hey ho etc

He whimmed on a thimble's brim
sing hey ho etc

He sent it to market on a louse's back
sing hey ho etc

And now the poor old man is dead
sing hey ho etc
