The Ballad o’ The O’ Moor

Hiz ‘kristen name were Hubert
Born o’ Sam and Mini;
Hiz peers called him hiz name –less the ‘bert’
So he becometh the Hugh Moore.
(Some sed he wud be the Laird’s jester)
With parental names such as they were,
‘Twas a prolific family-
There was Hugh, Dan, Don, Dina, Jesse, and nu Sam
Mini dyed at after givin’ birth to these;
Then ol’ Sam gone an’ marr’ed a gal named Lynn Mutt.
She then gave ol’ Sam some Moor bairns.
There was the first whose Kristen name was Montgomery –
But it became shortened “Mutt” .
There was Reida – her head was always stuk in a book.
I guess you mus’ kin, there were much jealousy
Yea, sibling rivalry between Sam ‘s prodigee!
Who kud o’ forseen that Dan Moor were envious o’ Don Moore,
Dina Moor, Anny Moor and Jess’ Moor
An’ don’t be for not rememberin Sam Moor, Mutt Moor and Reida Moor!

If Dan Moor coda werked hardir, he woold’ve done more than Don Moor
But they wouldna ‘Dina ‘ Moor than ‘ Jess’ Moor if they had done ‘Sam’ Moor,
Even a ‘lil’ – Mutt Moore could have “Reida Moor’ if he had Moor books.
Then they cud’ve taut their mither to Lynn Moor
since they no longer had Mini Moor mither to larn’m ‘Anny’ Moor.
