Can Ye Sew Cushions?

Melody - Seq. by Barry Taylor
Line

Oh, can ye sew cushions
And can ye sew sheets?
And can ye sing baluloo
When the bairn greets?
Chorus:
And hie and baw birdie,
And hie and baw lamb
And hie and baw birdie,
My bonnie wee lamb.

2. I biggit the cradle
All on the tree top
And the wind it did blaw,
And the cradle did rock.
Chorus:

3. Now hush-a-ba, lammie,
And hush-a-ba, dear
Now hush-a-ba, lammie,
Thy minnie is here.
Chorus:

4. The wild wind is ravin',
Thy minnie heart's sair
The wild wind is ravin',
And you dinna care.
Chorus:

5. Sing ba-la-loo, lammie,
Sing ba-la-loo, dear
Does the wee lammie ken
That his daddy's no' here?
Chorus:

6. Ye're rockin fu' sweetly
Upon my warm knee
But your daddy's a-rockin'
Upon the salt sea.
Chorus:
