Hickathrift - A Folk Song Written by Nicky Stockman especially for Orchards Primary School

Children of Orchards Primary School singing the specially composed Hickathrift song

 

Hickathrift the Wisbech Giant
Fought against an evil tyrant
On the Smeeth the Ogre slain
The Wisbech Fens are safe again

A poor fen boy from Marshland came
To fight the ogre at his game
His cart smashed up, he beat him down
And tore his tongue out for his crown

Hickathrift the Wisbech Giant
Fought against an evil tyrant
On the Smeeth the Ogre slain
The Wisbech Fens are safe again

When Tom died, a knight so brave
An 8 foot stone to mark his grave
He hurled a rock with all his power
Which hit the side of Tilney Tower

Hickathrift the Wisbech Giant
Fought against an evil tyrant
On the Smeeth the Ogre slain
The Wisbech Fens are safe again

Hickathrift the Wisbech Giant
Fought against an evil tyrant
On the Smeeth the Ogre slain
The Wisbech Fens are safe again
