Reel 421 Item 5
Bryon O'Lynn had no hat to wear;
He took a turtle shell with a flair,
Glued some strings inside the rim,
It'll turn the rain said Bryon O'Lynn.
Bryon O'Lynn had no shirt to his name,
He took a wolf skin for the same,
The hair side out, the flesh side in,
Just like me said Bryon O'Lynn.
Bryon O'Lynn had no pants to wear;
He took a sheepskin to make a pair,
Flesh side out, wooly side in,
They'll be life light and cool, said Bryon O'Lynn.
Bryon O'Lynn had no watch to wear;
He took a turnip and scraped it out fair,
And then he put a cricket within,
Now it'll tick, said Bryon O'Lynn.
Bryon O'Lynn, his wife and mother All went out on a bridge together;
The bridge, it broke; they all fell in,
We'll_________at the bottom, said Bryon O'Lynn.
