Current 93 – The Dilly Song lyrics

One of them is all alone
And evermore shall be so
Two of them are lily-white
Boys all clothed in green-oh
Three of them are strangers
O'er the wide world they are rangers
Four it is the dilly hour
When blooms the gilly flower
Five it is the dilly bird
That's seldom seen but heard
Six it is the ferryman
The boat o'er the river floats oh
Seven are the seven stars in the sky
The shining stars be seven-oh
Eight it is the morning break
Then all the world's awake-oh
Nine it is the pale moonshine
The shining moon is nine-oh
Ten forgives all kinds of sin
From ten begin again-oh
