There was a tree all in the woods,
As fine a tree as ever you did see,
For the tree was in the woods,
And the woods lie in the valley below.

There was a limb all on the tree,
As fine a limb as ever you did see,
For the limb was on the tree,
And the tree was in the woods,
And the woods lie in the valley below.

There was a bough all on the tree,
As fine a bough as ever you did see,
For the bough was on the limb,
And the limb was on the tree,
And the tree was in the woods,
And the woods lie in the valley below.

There was a bird all on the tree,
The finest bird that ever you did see,
For the bird was on the bough,
And the bough was on the limb,
And the limb was on the tree,
And the tree was in the woods,
And the woods lie in the valley below.
