Green Grow The Rushes Oh Song

 

Lyrics

I'll sing you one, Oh
Green grow the rushes, Oh
What is your one, Oh?
One is one and all alone
And evermore shall be so

Add verses 2-12 as below

The twelfth verse runs:

I'll sing you twelve, oh
Green grow the rushes, oh
What is your twelve, oh?
Twelve for the twelve Apostles,
Eleven for the eleven who went to heaven and
Ten for the ten commandments.
Nine for the nine bright shiners,
Eight for the April Rainers
Seven for the seven stars in the sky and
Six for the six brown walkers.
Five for the symbols at your door and
Four for the Gospel makers.
Three, three, the rivals,
Two, two, the lily-white boys,
Clothèd all in green, Ho ho
One is one and all alone
And evermore shall be so.
