Reel 425, Item 13
**BABES IN THE WOODS**
1. Oh don't you remember, a long time ago,
There were two little babes, their names I don't know, They were walking along, on a long summer day,
They got lost in the woods, I've heard people say.
2. Now when it was night, how sad was their plight,
The moon was not shining, and the stars gave no light, They cried and they cried, oh bitterly cried,
Then the poor little babes, laid down and they died.
3. Now when it was morning, a robin so red,
Brought strawberry leaves and all over them spread,
He sang them a song the whole summer long,
Those babes in the woods, they'd never done wrong.
