O’Reilly, O’Reilly

How-to: This song is usually sung in a round. The first “O’Reilly” is pronounced “O’Really” and the second “O’Reilly” is pronounced “O’Riley”. The pronunciations are switched in the second line so that “O’Riley” comes first.

Lyrics:

O’Reilly is dead and O’Reilly don’t know it,
O’Reilly is dead and O’Reilly don’t know it,
They’re both lying dead in the very same bed,
And neither one knows that the other is dead.

Hum hum hum hum.

  1. My grandma always sings this… but she says “They both lie in bed, beside one another / and neither one knows that the other is dead.”
