“The Crow Song”
There were three crows sat on a tree, Oh Billy Ma-gee Ma-gar!
There were three crows sat on a tree, Oh Billy Ma-gee Maggar!
There were three crows sat on a tree,
And they were black as crows should be
And they all flapped their wings and cried
Caw, Caw, Caw, Billy Ma-gee Ma-gar!
II
Said one old crow unto his mate, Oh Billy Ma-gee Ma-gar!
Said one old crow unto his mate, Oh Billy Ma-gee Ma-gar!
Said one old crow unto his mate,
What shall we do for grub to ate?
And they all flapped their wings and cried
Caw, Caw, Caw, Billy Ma-gee Ma-gar.
III
There lies a horse on yonder plain,
Whose by some cruel butcher slain,
We’ll perch upon his old backbone,
And pick his eyes out one by one.
And they all flapped their wings and cried
Caw, Caw, Caw, Billy Ma-gee Ma-gar.

Here is one version of this song sang by Burl Ives:
