Three Jolie Rogues

Three Jolly Rogues is an English folk song.

A miller, a weaver and a tailor lived in King Arthur's time (or in "Good Old Colonial times"). They were thrown out because they could not sing. All three were thieves. They are suitably punished.
The Miller got drowned in a dam
The Weaver got hung in his yarn
The Tailor tripped as he ran away with the broadcloth under his arm
