A Farmer Went Trotting Upon His Grey Mare

A farmer went trotting upon his grey mare,
Bumpety, Bumpety, bump !
With his daughter behind so rosy and fair,
A raven cried, Croak ! and they went tumbling down,
Bumpety, bumpety, bump !
The mare broke her knees and the farmer his crown,
Lumpety, lumpety, lump !
The mischievous raven flew laughing away,
Bumpety, bumpety, bump !
And vowed he would serve them the same the next day,
Lumpety, lumpety, lump !
