H 41 The Lemmings And The Nee
Sung To The Tune Of The Orange And The Green
Oh it is the greatest mix up that you have ever seen
My father was a Lemming and my mother was a Nee
My Father was a Lemming man from Montengarde was he
My Mother was from Appledore, her household it was Nee
They were married in two baronies, lived happily enough,
Until the day that I was born and things got rather tough.
Baptized by Good Nee Whiskey, I was rushed away by cart,
To be made a little Lemming man, my father's shining star.
I was christened "David Anthony," but still, in spite of that,
To me father, I was William, while my mother called me Pat.
At Clinton every evening, to Tavern I would stroll.
Then after that, the Lemming Inn would try to save my soul.
For both sides tried to claim me, but I was smart because
I'd play the flute or play the harp, depending where I was.
One day me Ma's relations came round to visit me.
Just as my father's kinfolk were all sitting down to tea.
We tried to smooth things over, but they all began to fight.
And me, the strictly neutral act, I bashed everyone in sight.
My parents never could agree about my type of school.
My learning was all done at home, that's why I'm such a fool.
They've both passed on, God rest 'em, but left me caught between
That awful household problem of the Lemming and the Nee.
