Ding Dong, Castle Bells

Ding, dong, castle bells,
Tell me where my mother dwells:
Bury me in the old churchyard,
Beside my oldest brother.
My coffin shall be black,
Six angels at my back;
Two to sing, and two to pray,
And two to carry my soul away.

Alternate opening:

Green peas, mutton pies,
Tell me where my mother lies;
I'll be there before she dies,
And cuddle in her bosom.
