Babylon

There was three sisters out on a day
Too-ra-lee and a loney, O
They met a robber on their way
By the bonny, bonny banks of the vergie-o

Now he took the first one by the hand
Too-ra-lee …
And he whipped her 'round 'til she could not stand
By the bonny …

And he took the second though she tried to flee
And her red blood he spilled so free

And he held the third in a grip so tight
She said "I wish my brothers were here tonight"

"Oh, what are your brothers come tell to me"
"O one of them's a minister," said she

"And what's the other, I pray you tell?"
"The other one's a robber, like yourself"

"Lord have mercy for what I've done,
I've murdered my sisters all but one"

Now he took out a wee pen knife
And there he took his own sweet life
