O My O My What a wretched life
I was born on the day that my poor mother died
I was cut from her belly with a Stanley knife
My daddy did a jig with the drunk midwife

Who's that yonder all in flames
Dragging behind him a sack of chains
Who's that yonder all in flames
Up jumped the Devil and he staked his claim
