I've a one man, I've a two men to mow down the meadow
I've a three men, I've a four men to carry the hay away
Me four, me three, me two, me one and all lots more
To mow the hay, to carry it away
On a beautiful midsummer's morn.

I've a five men, I've a six men to mow down the meadow
I've a seven men, I've an eight men to carry the hay away
Me eight, me seven, me six, me five
Me four, me three, me two, me one, and all lots more
To mow the hay, to carry it away
On a beautiful midsummer's morn.

Don't know the name of this one, heard it sung by a folk group called Spinning Wheel. Seems to be related to "One Man Shall Mow My Meadow" tho the tune is bouncier.
