Babes In The Wood
My dears, do you know That a long, time ago
Two little babes, whose name I don't know.
Were stolen away On a bright summer day And lost in the woods So I have heard say And when it was night How sad was their plight;
The sun it went down
And the moon gave no light.
They sighed and they sighed,
And they bitterly cried;
And the poor little babes,
They laid down and died.
And when they were dead,
The robin so red,
Brought pretty green leaves And over them spread;
And all the night long,
They sang this song;
Poor babes in the wood, Poor babes in the wood.
