Can Ye Sew Cushions?


Oh, can ye sew cushions and can ye sew sheets?
And can ye sing baluloo when the bairn greets?
And hie and baw birdie, and hie and baw lamb
And hie and baw birdie, my bonnie wee lamb.

I biggit the cradle all on the tree top
And the wind it did blaw, and the cradle did rock
And hie and baw birdie, and hie and baw lamb
And hie and baw birdie, my bonnie wee lamb.

Now hush-a-ba, lammie, and hush-a-ba, dear
Now hush-a-ba, lammie, thy minnie is here
And hie and baw birdie, and hie and baw lamb
And hie and baw birdie, my bonnie wee lamb.

The wild wind is ravin', thy minnie heart's sair
The wild wind is ravin', and you dinna care
And hie and baw birdie, and hie and baw lamb
And hie and baw birdie, my bonnie wee lamb.

Sing ba-la-loo, lammie, sing ba-la-loo, dear
Does the wee lammie ken that his daddy's no' here?
And hie and baw birdie, and hie and baw lamb
And hie and baw birdie, my bonnie wee lamb.

ship Ye're rockin fu' sweetly upon
    my warm knee
But your daddy's a-rockin'
    upon the salt sea
And hie and baw birdie,
    and hie and baw lamb
And hie and baw birdie,
    my bonnie wee lamb.
