lyrics

YOUNGER:
O my dear it’s such a fine mess
What will be done, what will be done?
I love two and both I have kissed
What will be done my dear?

One is round as a wagon wheel
What will be done, what will be done?
One is skinnier than a sour apple peal
What will be done my dear?

O my dear it’s such a fine mess
What will be done, what will be done?
I love two and both I have kissed
What will be done my dear?

One’s more guilded than a gold man’s locket
What will be done, what will be done?
One is poorer than a poet’s pocket
What will be done my dear?

OLDER:
Take your tome don’t fall too soon
What will be done, what will be done?
Never sow your seeds neath the wax of the moon
What will be done my dear?

TOGETHER:
O my dear it’s such a fine mess
What will be done, what will be done?
I/you love two and both I/you have kissed
What will be done my dear?

OLDER:
Look for a sign by the water’s edge
What will be done, what will be done?
Steal a branch off the heathered hedge
What will be done my dear?

YOUNGER:
O my dear it’s such a fine mess
What will be done, what will be done?
There’s a third one I must confess

OLDER:
O what will be done my dear?

YOUNGER:
He’s not too lean and he’s not too round
What will be done, what will be done?
He’s not so poor but he’s not so proud
What will be done my dear?

TOGETHER:
O my dear it’s such a fine mess
What will be done, what will be done?
There are three, but one I/you love best
What will be done my dear?
What will be done my dear?

about

Under the Big Oak Tree St. Joseph, Missouri

Under the Big Oak Tree’s blend of vintage folk, acoustic country, & traditional bluegrass has been described as “warm” and “picturesque” with “flawless harmonies.”

The band’s 2014 debut recording stood out as “one of the most lush, beautiful records to come out of the local scene,” and made multiple year-end best lists. The group’s second album, Local Honey, will be released on MudStomp Records.
