Three jolly huntsmen






Three jolly huntsmen,

I have heard people say,

Rode out a-hunting

All on a summer’s day.

All the day they hunted,

Nothing could they find,

But a fine ship a-sailing,

A-sailing with the wind.

One said, it is a ship.

The other he said nay;

The third said, it is a house

With the chimney blown away.

Then all the night they hunted,

Nothing could they find,

But the bright moon a-gliding,

A-gliding with the wind.

One said, it is the moon.

The other he said nay.

The third said, it is a cheese,

But half’s cut away.
