Dear Mama Lisa
Please can you help? My daughter learned a song in school 30 years ago and is now anxious to trace the lyrics for her four little boys. The only lyrics we can remember are as follows:
Near / In / Down Wookey Hole in days gone by, were three unlucky men,
The first fell down a treacle mine and was never seen again.
And all the birds cried fancy that,
and all the birds cried fancy that,
and all the birds cried fancy that
To hear this merry song.
We think there are three verses, one of them involving a custard lake.
In case anyone’s wondering, Wookey Hole is a village in the south west of England.
If anyone can help with the lyrics to this song, please comment below.
