Adam Catched Eve

[trad.]

Tim Hart and Maddy Prior recorded the catch Adam Catched Eve in 1971 for their third duo album, Summer Solstice.

Cambridge and Walker sang Adam Catched Eve on their 2021 CD Wheel and Dive. They noted:

A curious little rhyme, occasionally sung as a round, whose meaning is open to interpretation. A perfect intrdoction to the next track [The Two Magicians].

Lyrics

Tim Hart and Maddy Prior sing Adam Catched Eve

Adam catched Eve by the fur below
Adam catched Eve by the fur below
And that's the oldest catch I know
And that's the oldest catch I know
And that's the oldest catch I know
