  1. The wren , the wren
    The king of the birds
    Up with the kettle
    And down with the pan
    A penny or two-pence
    To bury the wren
    If you have not twopence
    A penny will do
    If you have not a penny
    A halfpenny will do
    And if you have not a halfpenny
    God bless you
    We chased the wren
    From rock to rock
    We chased him
    Into a public shop
    We dipped his nose
    In a bottle of beer
    and I wish you all a happy New Year
