Had Four Brothers

Song Video

Lyrics

I HAD four brothers over the sea,
Perrie, Merrie, Dixie, Domine
And each one sent a gift to me,
Petrum, Partrum, Paradisi, Tempore,
Perrie, Merrie, Dixie, Domine.

The first one sent a goose without a bone,
Perrie, Merrie, Dixie, Domine.
The second sent a cherry without a stone,
Petrum, Partrum, Paradisi, Tempore,
Perrie, Merrie, Dixie, Domine.

The third sent a blanket without a thread,
Perrie, Merrie, Dixie, Domine.
The fourth sent a book no man could read,
Petrum, Partrum, Paradisi, Tempore,
Perrie, Merrie, Dixie, Domine.

When cherry's in blossom there is no stone,
Perrie, Merrie, Dixie, Domine.
When the goose is in the egg there is no bone,
Petrum, Partrum, Paradisi, Tempore,
Perrie, Merrie, Dixie, Domine.

When the wool's on the back there is no thread,
Perrie, Merrie, Dixie, Domine.
When the book's in the press no man can read,
Petrum, Partrum, Paradisi, Tempore,
Perrie, Merrie, Dixie, Domine.
