Morris Medley

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 of horns.
 
Chorus:
 
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.
