Maddy Prior Who Am I (short) Lyrics

sponsored links

He's my baby and I prize him
I've kept him in his bed
Till he was two years grown
I've fed him on ox blood
An dry bone-meal
And now he is ready to be shown
Who am I?
From his plate up to his button
His body is pure white
And full six inches long
He stands proud with rest
Puts flags out east and west
With a crown of green herring-bone
Who am I?

I show him to neighbours
Who auction him away
But I buy him back again
I chop up his children
And feed them to my own
As he shivers out in the winter rain
Who am I?
