Song Lyrics

I have four sisters beyond the sea
Pere Meri Dixi Dominie
And they each sent a present to me
Pere Meri Dixi Dominie

CHORUS
Petrum Patrum Paradisi Tempori
Pere Meri Dixi Dominie

The first sent a chicken without 'ere a bone
Pere Meri Dixi Dominie
The second sent a cherry without 'ere a stone
Pere Meri Dixi Dominie

CHORUS

The third sent a book which no one could read
Pere Meri Dixi Dominie
The fourth sent a blanket without 'ere a thread
Pere Meri Dixi Dominie

CHORUS

How can there be a chicken without 'ere a bone
Pere Meri Dixi Dominie
How can there be a cherry without 'ere a stone
Pere Meri Dixi Dominie

CHORUS

How can there be a book which no one could read
Pere Meri Dixi Dominie
How can there be a blanket without 'ere a thread
Pere Meri Dixi Dominie

CHORUS

When the chicken's in the eggshell, there is no bone
Pere Meri Dixi Dominie
When the cherry's in the bud, there is no stone
Pere Meri Dixi Dominie

CHORUS

When the book's in the press, no one it can read
Pere Meri Dixi Dominie
When the blanket's on the fleece, there is no thread
Pere Meri Dixi Dominie

CHORUS
