Who put Bella in the wych elm?
Who shook the hand of glory?
Who tore a hole in purpura?
Can four boys tell one story?

Now Jack he dreams of hair and teeth
A wedding ring, a skull in a tree
Did he? Dead he?

Who put Bella in the wych elm?
When war is a cloak for a killer
Who sinks a ship as a whisperer?
Was she a spy or a singer?

Now Joe he dreams of hair and teeth
A wedding ring, a skull in a tree
Did he? Dead he?
Who put Bella in the wych elm?

Black car, asleep in a wood
In a field where a ghost once stood

Who put Bella in the wych elm?
Is he beyond the jury?
Who put Bella in the wych elm?
Where is the court of the earthly?

Who put Bella in the wych elm?
Who died last in the Tower?
Who put Bella in the wych elm?
She fell from the sky like a flower

Now Tom he dreams of hair and teeth
A wedding ring, a skull in a tree
Did he? Dead he?

Black car, asleep in a wood
In a field where a ghost once stood
Who?
