Tom, he was a piper's son,
He learned to play when he was young,
And all the tune that he could play,
Was, "Over the hills and far away"
Over the hills and a great way off
The wind shall blow my top knot off.
Tom with his pipe made such a noise
That he pleased both the girls and boys
They all stopped to hear him play
?Over the hills and far away?
Tom with his pipe played with such skill
That those who heard him could never keep still
As soon as he played they began to dance
Even the pigs on their hind legs began to prance.
