Hoblander Lyr Req: Hares on the Mountain (Hall, Macgregor) (20) RE: Lyr Req: Hares on the Mountain (Hall, Macgregor) 25 Aug 08


The version I've been singing for many, many years comes from an LP by the High Level Ranters, called The Lads of Northumberland,Trailer LER 2007 1969, sung by Tommy Gilfellon, and contains the ususal hares, blackbirds and thrushes, trout verses and the following

Oh Sally me dear, won't you come to bed to me
oh sally me dear, won't you come to bed to me,
she smiled and replied, I'm afraid you'll undo me,
to me right foldadiddellero to me right foldariddleday

Oh Sally me dear I will not undo you x2
she smiled and replied you may come to bed to me
to me right etc

Oh Sally me dear I can't undo me britches x2
she smiled and replied take a knife and cut the stitches
to me right etc

So he's undid his britches and into bed tumbled x2
and I'll leave you to imagine how that young couple fumbled
to me right etc

Young women they're given to frisking and fooling x 2
I'll leave them alone and attend to me schooling
to me right etc.
I've also added a few extra verses at the top which I borrowed from Mary Humphreys
Cheers Kevin
