"The Jolly Miller of Dee"

This is a link to most of the Common Room scholars and the DHM singing the aforementioned folksong.
Jolly Miller of Dee
I appologize. We have colds, and sore throats. *coughs convincingly*
The DHM is actually sitting as far away from the microphone as she can with out being in a different room, while FYG, JennyAnyDots, and Pipsqueak are almost standing on top of it. Still, the voices that come through the clearest are the DHM and the FYG, who is nine, and noisy.
Words to the song:

There was a jolly miller once
Lived on the river Dee ;
He work’d and sang from morn till night,
No lark more blithe than he.
And this the burden of his aong
Forever used to be
I care for nobody, no, not I,
If nobody cares for me.

The reason why he was so blithe,
He once did thus unfold
The bread I eat my hands have earn’d;
I covet no man’s gold ;
I do not fear next quarter-day;
In debt to none I be.
I care for nobody, no, not I,
If nobody cares for me.

A coin or two I’ve in my purse,
To help a needy friend ;
A little I can give the poor,
And still have some to spend.
Though I may fail, yet I rejoice,
Another’s good hap to see.
I care for nobody, no, not I,
If nobody cares for me.

So let us his example take,
And be from malice free;
Let every one his neighbour serve,
As served he’d like to be.
And merrily push the can about
And drink and sing with glee;
If nobody cares a doit for us,
Why not a doit care we.
