Weila Waila
Traditional Irish Songs


And there was an auld woman
And she lived in the woods
A weila weila waila
There was an auld woman
And she lived in the woods
Down by the riverside

She had a baby three months old
A weila weila waila
She had a baby three months old
Down by the riverside

She had a penknife long and sharp
A weila weila waila
She had a penknife long and sharp
Down by the riverside

She stuck the penknife in the baby's head
A weila weila waila
She stuck the penknife in the baby's head
Down by the riverside

There was three loud knocks coming knocking on the door
A weila weila waila
Three loud knocks coming knocking on the door
Down by the riverside

There was two policemen and a man
A weila weila waila
Two policemen and a man
Down by the riverside

They took her away and they put her in the jail
A weila weila waila
They took her away and they put her in the jail
Down by the riverside

They put the rope around her neck
A weila weila waila
They put the rope around her neck
Down by the riverside

They pulled the rope and she got hung
A weila weila waila
They pulled the rope and she got hung
Down by the riverside

Now that was the end of the woman in the woods
A weila weila waila
That was the end in the fabby tune
Down by the riverside
