I tried to put a bird in a cage. O fool that I am! For the bird was Truth. Sing merrily, Truth: I tried to put Truth in a cage!
And when I had the bird in the cage, O fool that I am! Why, it broke my pretty cage. Sing merrily, Truth: I tried to put Truth in a cage!
And when the bird was flown from the cage, O fool that I am! Why, I had nor bird nor cage. Sing merrily, Truth: I tried to put Truth in a cage! Heigh-ho! Truth in a cage.
