    Lyrics

    Get down, get down, little Henry Lee
    And stay all night with me
    You won't find a girl in this damned world
    That will compare with me
    And the wind did howl en the wind did blow
    La la la la la
    La la la la lee
    A little bird lit down on Henry Lee

    I can't get down ans I won't get down
    And stay all night with thee
    For the girl I have in that merry green land
    I love far better than thee
    And the wind did howl and the wind did blow
    La la la la la
    La la la la lee
    A little bird lit down on Henry Lee

    She leaned herself against a fence
    Just for a kiss or two
    And with a little pen-knife held in her hand
    She plugged him through and through
    And the wind did roar and the wind did moan
    La la la la la
    La la la la lee
    A little bird lit down on Henry Lee

    Come take him by his lilly-white hands
    Come take him by his feet
    And throw him in this deep, deep well
    Which is more than one hundred feet
    And the wind did howl and the wind did blow
    La la la la la
    La la la la lee
    A little bird lit down on Henry Lee

    Lie there, lie there, little Henry Lee
    'Till the flesh drops from your bones
    For the girl you have in that merry green land
    Can wait forever for you to come home
    And the wind did howl and the wind did moan
    La la la la la
    La la la la lee
    A little bird lit down on Henry Lee
