[Trad. arr. Simon Nicol / Martin Carthy / Ashley Hutchings]
Oh, so selfish runs the hare And so cunning runs the fox. Who would think this little calf Would grow to a noble
ox? To live among the briars And to run among the thorns, And die the death that his father did With a large pair
Horns, large horns, Horns, large horns, And die the death that his father did With a large pair of horns.
This medley of five Morris tunes was recorded in 1973 for the album
Martin Carthy sings the tune in the middle, So Selfish Runs the Hare.
