Traditional

Same old man workin' at the mill
Mill turns around of its own free will
Hand in the hopper and the other in a sack
Ladies step forward and the gents fall back.

'Down' - said the owl, his head all white
'Lonesome day and a lonesome night'
'Thought I heard a pretty girl say'
'Work all night and sleep next day'.

Same old man workin' at the mill
Mill turns around of its own free will
Hand in the hopper and the other in a sack
Ladies step forward and the gents fall back.

'My' - said raven as she flew
'If I was a young man, I'd have two'
'One for to watch and the other for to sew'
'I'd have a little string for my bow, bow, bow'.

Same old man workin' at the mill
Mill turns around of its own free will
Hand in the hopper and the other in a sack
Ladies step forward and the gents fall back.

My old man's in Kalamazoo
He don't wear no 'yes I do'
First to the left and then to the right
This old mill grinds day and night.

Same old man workin' at the mill
Mill turns around of its own free will
Hand in the hopper and the other in a sack
Ladies step forward and the gents fall back.
