  1. Of all the brave birds that ever I see
    The owl is the fairest in her degree,
    For all day long she sits in a tree
    And when night comes away flies she.
    To whit, to whoo, to whit, to whoo
    This song is well sung Iíll make you a vow
    And he is a knave that drinketh now.
    Nose, nose, nose, nose,
    And who gave you that jolly red nose.
    Cinnamon and ginger, nutmegs and cloves
    Thatís what gave me this jolly red nose
