Song Lyrics

I have 4 sisters beyond the sea

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

And they each sent a present to me

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

Petrum Patrum Paradisi Tempori

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

The first sent a chicken without 'ere a bone

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

The second sent a cherry without 'ere a stone

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

Petrum Patrum Paradisi Tempori

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

The third sent a book which no man could read

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

The fourth sent a blanket without 'ere a thread

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

Petrum Patrum Paradisi Tempori

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

How can there be a chicken without 'ere a bone?

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

How can there be a cherry without 'ere a stone?

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

Petrum Patrum Paradisi Tempori

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

How can there be a book which no one could read?

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

How can there be a blanket without 'ere a thread?

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

Petrum Patrum Paradisi Tempori

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

When the chicken's in the eggshell, there is no bone

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

When the cherry's in the bud, there is no stone

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

Petrum Patrum Paradisi Tempori

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

When the book's in the press, it cannot be read

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

When the blanket's on the fleece, there is no thread

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

Petrum Patrum Paradisi Tempori

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie

Peri Meri Dixi Dominie
