Can ye sew cushions

Lyrics

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

Chorus
Hie-oh, wee-oh, what would I do wi ye
Blacks the life that I lead wi you
Mony o you, little for to gie ye
Hie-oh, wee-oh, what would I do wi you

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, lambie, and hush-a-ba, dear
Now hush-a-ba, lambie, 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, lambie, sing ba-la-loo, dear
Does the wee lambie 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

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
