The Cruel Mother

Modern street-song version:  OLD MOTHER LEE

  • (Anon)

    There was an old woman called old Mother Lee
    Old Mother Lee, old Mother Lee
    There was an old woman called old Mother Lee
    Down by the walnut tree

    She had a baby in her arms ...

    She had a penknife long and sharp ...

    She stabbed te baby through the heart ...

    The next-door neighbours saw the blood ...

    They rang up for the forty police ...

    The forty police came running (skipping) out ...

    They took her to the magistrate ...

    The magistrate said she must die ...

    They hung her to the walnut tree ...
    And that was the end of old Mother Lee ...

    As sung by The Spinners
