And A Partridge In A Pear Tree: Part III Three French Hens

Three French hens in the garden on
A Galleneous throne
Chatting and making quite a noise
From whence they have been blown

Their names they say are Hope and Faith,
And also Charity
But they’re concerned by turtle doves
And Partridge in the tree

For word out on the street is that
Their tree’s about to fall
Or at the very least thought soon
To hit the garden wall

And so they perch a bit away
Upon the garden seat
In conference or parliament
Quite happy there to greet

All who might come a wandering
Or those who just pass by
Three French hens next to turtle doves
And partridge way up high
