  • Bring out your weeping weeds
    Put on your ten-pint bowlers
    Bring out your weeping weeds
    We're burying Davy
    We're burying Davy

    Gather the screws and spades
    Oil up your mud-brown slicker
    Gather the screws and spades
    We're burying Davy
    We're burying Davy

    Who'll plane the old pine boughs?
    Who'll set his legs uncrooked?
    Who'll plane the old pine boughs?
    For burying Davy
    For burying Davy

    Mother wept no tears
    His brother grew unruly
    Mother wept no tears
    At burying Davy
    At burying Davy

    Bring out your weeping weeds
    Put on your ten-pint bowlers
    Bring out your weeping weeds
    We're burying Davy
    We're burying Davy
