All the men had feet

All the men had feet,
My man had none.
So I took a birch-root
And'made my man feet.
My man danced around
Feet in his socks had he
Just like any other man.
 
All the men had eyes,
My man had none.
So I took a sheep
And made my man eyes.
My man danced around,
Sheep-eyes had he
Just like any other man.
 
All the men had arms,
My man had none.
So I took some guts
And made my man arms.
My man danced around
Arms of guts had he
Just like any other man.
 
His brother's name was Jubal; he was the father of all
who play stringed instruments and pipes. (Genesis 4:21)
