Three flies

 

Verse 1

It's of three flies went roving,
All for to change their mind,
They took their loving parents
And left them far behind:
But they too saucy were by half,
And I can't sing if you do laugh.

Verse 2

The first was a yellow,
The second was a blue,
The third was a green one,
And they soon went out of view
But they too saucy were by half,
And I can't sing if you do laugh.

Verse 3

Now they went off with a merry him,
And told their parents to drink hot rum.
But they too saucy were by half,
And I can't sing if you do laugh.
