Sitting on a wall
Sitting on a wa-a-all
Three craws sitting on a wall
On a cold and frosty morn.

The first craw could nae flee at aa

On a cold and frosty morn.

The second craw was greetin' for his maw
Greetin' for his maw
Greetin' for his maw-aa-aa
The second craw was greetin' for his ma
On a cold and frosty morn.

The third craw fell and broke his jaw
fell and broke his jaw
fell and broke his jaw-aa-aa
The third craw fell and broke his jaw
On a cold and frosty morn.

The fourth craw was nae ther at a'.
