We, said the Wren,  
Both the cock and the hen,  
We'll bear the pall.

I, said the Thrush,  
As she sat on a bush,  
I'll sing a psalm.   

Who'll toll the bell?  
I, said the Bull,  
Because I can pull,  
So Cock Robin, farewell.  

All the birds of the air   
Fell a-sighing and a-sobbing,  
When they heard the bell toll  
For poor Cock Robin.
