Great Big Sea – Come And I Will Sing You lyrics

*Each verse begins with "Come and I will sing you", followed by "What will you sing me?" And then "I will sing you one o", followed by "what will the one be?" with the number changing every verse.
One the one that's all alone and ever more shall be so.
Two of them were lily white babes, clothed all in green-o,
Three of them were drivers
Four gospel preachers
Five ferrymen under the bush
Six, the six pallbearers
Seven, seven stars under the sky
Eight gabriel angels
Nine the bright eyed shiners
Ten the ten commandments
Eleven is the eleven that went straight to heaven
Twelve, twelve apostles
