DigiTrad: PRETTY BABES IN THE WOOD

PRETTY BABES IN THE WOOD

Oh, don't you remember, a long time ago
Those two little babes, their names I don't know
They strayed away one bright summer's day
Those two little babes got lost on their way

Pretty babes in the wood
Pretty babes in the wood
oh, don't you remember
Those babes in the wood

Now the day being gone and the night coming on
Those two little babies sat under a stone
They sobbed and they sighed and they sat there and cried
Those two little babes they laid down and died

Now the robins so red, how quickly they sped
They put out their wide wings and over them spread
And all the day long on the branches they thronged
They sweetly did whistle and this was their song
