Lyrics

King Arthur ruled the land - that he did;
And a right good ruler was he - that he was;
He had three sons of yore, and he kicked them to the door,
Because they would not sing,

Chorus :
Because they would not sing,
Because they would not sing.
He had three sons of yore, and he kicked them to the door,
Because they would not sing.

The first he was a miller - that he was;
The second was a weaver - that he was;
And the third he was a little tailor boy,
With his broadcloth under his arm.

Chorus : -With his broadcloth under his arm, etc.

The miller he stole corn - that he did;
The weaver he stole yarn - that he did;
And the little tailor boy he stole corduroy,
To keep the other fellows warm.

Chorus : - To keep the other fellows warm, etc.

The miller he was drowned in his dam - that he was;
The weaver he was hanged with his yarn - that he was;
But the devil ran away with the little tailor boy,
With the broadcloth under his arm.

Chorus : - With the broadcloth under his arm, etc.
