Tune of the Day: Wee Cooper O’ Fife

Traditional Scottish song

This is a Scottish folk song about a cooper who beats his wife because she will not cook, clean, and sew.

An American variation of the song, entitled “Risseldy Rosseldy”, was sung by the school children in Alfred Hitchcock's 1963 film The Birds right before they were attacked by a swarm of birds.

Thanks to Ronald for suggesting this tune!
