about

A tradition Irish Murder Ballad reinterpreted by 7th Victim

lyrics

There was an old woman who lived in the woods
Weela Weela Walya
There was an old woman who lived in the woods
Down by the River Saile
She had a baby three months old
Weela Weela Walya
She had a baby three months old
Down by the River Saile
She had a penknife long and sharp
Weela Weela Walya
She stuck the knife in the baby's heart
Down by the River Saile
She stuck the knife in the baby's head
Weela Weela Walya
The more she stabbed the more it bled
Down by the River Saile
Three big knocks came knocking on the door
Weela Weela Walya
Three policemen from across the moor
Down by the River Saile
Are you the woman who killed that child?
Weela Weela Walya
Are you the woman who killed that child?
Down by the River Saile
Yes, I'm the woman who killed that child
Weela Weela Walya
Yes, I'm the woman who killed that child
Down by the River Saile
The rope got chucked and she got hanged
Weela Weela Walya
The rope got chucked and she got hanged
Down by the River Saile
The moral of this story is
Weela Weela Walya
Don't stick knifes in babies' heads
