August 4 is the 128th anniversary of Lizzie Borden’s handy ax work . The Gobshites will be releasing the cover of the Chad Mitchell Trio song about her.
Lizzie Borden took an axe
and gave her mother forty whacks.
When she saw what she had done,
she gave her father forty-one.
Andrew Borden now is dead,
Lizzie hit him on the head.
Up in heaven he will sing,
on the gallows she will swing.
