Come, follow, follow, follow, follow, follow, follow me

Twitter has a new follow button, which makes it easier than ever to connect to people who want you to follow them. You get two different options, one with a follower count, the other one without.

Come follow follow follow follow follow me.
Whither shall I follow follow follow,
whither shall I follow follow thee?
To the gallow, to the gallow, to the gallow, gallow tree.

Mark Gilston writes of this tune, in his Playing with Dulcimers notes:

Written by John Hilton in 1652. I learned this round as a youngster from a Susan Reed recording. These days it is usually sung, “To the greenwood tree” rather than the gallows.

As a counterbalance, I give you Twitter Zero (unfollow everyone).
