Lyrics

Chorus
Oh horo eeree caidil gu lo
Oh horo eeree caidil gu lo

Oh hush thee my baby, thy sire was a knight
Thy mother a lady both gentle and bright

Oh hush thee my baby, the time will soon come
When thy sleep shall be broken by trumpet and drum

Then hush thee my darling, take rest while you may
For strife comes with manhood, and waking with day
