Lyrics

1
Cock Robin is dead and cold in his grave,
Oo-ah, cold in his grave. 
They planted an apple tree over his head,
Mm-ah, over his head.

2
When apples were ripe an’ ready to drop,
Ah-ah, ready to drop.
There came an old woman to pick ’em all up,
Oo-ah, pick ’em all up.

3
Cock Robin rose up an’ gave ’er a knock,
Mm-ah, gave ’er a knock,
Which made the old woman go hickerty-hop,
Ah-ah, hickerty-hop.

4
The apples were upped an’ put on a shelf,
Mm-ah, put on a shelf.
If yer want any more yer can sing it yerself.
Oo-oo-ah, sing it yerself.
