What will the eleven be
Eleven is the eleven
That went straight to heaven
Ten, the ten commandments
Nine the bright-eyed sinners
Eight Gabriel angels

Five ferrymen under the bush
Four gospel preachers
Three of them were drivers
Two of them were lily white babes

Two of them were lily white babes
Clothed all in green-o
One the one that's all alone
And ever more shall be so
