Which came first,
the fern or the fiddle
Must have been the fiddle
poking up out of the ground
in a woodsy place  No
The fern came first and they 
called it a fiddlehead   No
If they made the scroll on the fiddle
why didn't they call it 
a fern head fiddle
No The fern came first
growing out there all alone 
no name all those years
then someone scrolled
the head of a fiddle
fern gets a name  
Ever eat them
the fern not the fiddle
although it must look like the fiddler 
is going to eat the thing butt first
Not I   I hold the fiddle on my chest
play from my heart
