The Tailor and the Mouse

from The Tailor and the Mouse by Jim Lynch

/

about

An English folk song. "The tailor thought his mouse was ill / He gave him part of a blue pill". The rest of the lyrics are a bit disturbing; I've reproduced them here. Click on "lyrics" in the track list.

lyrics

There was a tailor had a mouse
They lived together in one house

Chorus (after each verse)
---------------------------
Hi diddle um come tarum tirum,
Through the town of Ramsey,
Hi diddle um come over the lea,
Hi diddle um come feed-al

The tailor thought his mouse was ill
He gave him part of a blue pill

The tailor thought the mouse would die
He baked him in an apple pie

The pie was cut, the mouse ran out
The tailor chased him all about

The tailor found his mouse was dead
So he bought another one in his stead
