The Wren Song
Last updated: 24.01.17

I first heard "The Wren Song" on a Clancy Brothers LP "In Person at Carnegie Hall" together with The Irish Soldiers, A Man of double deed and When I was young. The version I sing can also be found in their The Irish Songbook.
This is a jolly children's song about catching a wren, killing it and then collecting money for its funeral. All very educational indeed!
