Traditional tune, oddly charming in its morbidness. Often called "Go Tell Aunt Rhody" and accompanied on the autoharp in elementary school music classes, as it involves only about three chords.

Lyrics:

Go tell Aunt Rhody, go tell Aunt Rhody
Go tell Aunt Rhody, the old gray goose is dead
The one she's been saving
The one she's been saving
The one she's been saving
To make a feather bed

Go tell Aunt Rhody, go tell Aunt Rhody
Go tell Aunt Rhody, the old gray goose is dead
She died in the mill pond
She died in the mill pond
She died in the mill pond
From standing on her head

Go tell Aunt Rhody, go tell Aunt Rhody
Go tell Aunt Rhody, the old gray goose is dead
The goslings are mourning
The goslings are mourning
The goslings are mourning
Because their mother's dead

Go tell Aunt Rhody, go tell Aunt Rhody
Go tell Aunt Rhody, the old gray goose is dead
The old gander's weeping
The old gander's weeping
The old gander's weeping
Because his mate is dead
