There was a man of Double Deed
Who sowed his garden full of seed
And when the seed began to grow
Twas like a garden full of snow
And when the snow began to melt
Twas like a ship without a belt
And when the ship begain to sail
Twas like a bird without a tail
and when the bird began to fly
Twas like an eagle in the sky
And when the sky began to roar
Twas like a lion at my door
And when my door began to crack
Twas like a stick across my back
And when my back began to smart
Twas like a penknife in my heart
And when my heart began to bleed
Twas Death and Death and Death indeed.

Alternately:

There was a man of double deed
Who sowed his garden full of seed
And when the seed began to grow
Twas like a garden full of snow
And when the snow began to fall
Like birds it was upon my wall
And when the birds began to fly
Twas like a shipwreck in the sky
And when the sky began to crack
Twas like a stick across my back
And when my back began to smart
Twas like a penknife in my heart
And when my heart began to bleed
Then i was dead, and dead indeed.
