PETERBOROUGH’S ROCKWOOD RAM
The Rockwood Ram Went to do his duty, Fell in the creek and broke his neck. The ewe’s had thought him a beauty. Joan Faith McDonald
The legend grew about his fame The lamb’s were proud to bear his name. The loss of such a famous ram Was mourned by every breeding dam. Joan Faith McDonald
Chorus: The Sheep fell in the creek Tho’ it wasn’t very deep He died without a bleat! Heather Parker
Percy Rockwood was a lamb Who grew to be a big fat ram Across the fields he sewed his oat’s To the dismay of all the goats! Willem Kempen
When his time was up and the end grew near The Borough residents shed a tear. Percy thought he was bright as a button In the end he was 20 kilos of mutton. Willem Kempen
Chorus as above For 20 years the skull was used To prop up and level a trough Moulds and moss grew on it The dirt and grime blew on it UNTIL NOW!!!! Craig Ferguson
