The Derby Ram


As I was going to Derby all on a market day,

I met the finest ram, sir, that ever was fed upon hay;

Upon hay, upon hay, upon hay;

I met the finest ram, sir, that ever was fed upon hay.


This ram was fat behind, sir; this ram was fat before; 

This ram was ten yards round, sir; indeed he was no more;

No more, no more, no more:

This ram was ten yards round, sir; indeed, he was no more.


The horns that grew on his head, they were so wondrous high,

As I've been plainly told, sir; they reached up to the sky.

The sky, the sky, the sky;

As I've been plainly told, sir, they reached up to the sky.


The tail that grew from his back, sir, was six yards and an ell;

And it was sent to Derby to toll the market bell;

The bell, the bell, the bell;

And it was sent to Derby to toll the market bell.
