Jim Dixon Lyr Req: Christmas - Some in rags? (20) Lyr Add: DAME GET UP (from Cecil Sharp) 20 Mar 20

From Children's Singing Games, edited by Alice Bertha Gomme and Cecil James Sharp (London: Novello and Company, Ltd., 1909), page 42:

(An arrangement for one voice and piano is given.)

Collected and arranged by Cecil J. Sharp

1. Dame, get up and bake your pies,
Bake your pies, bake your pies.
So dame, get up and bake your pies
On Christmas day in the morning.

2. Dame, what makes your maidens lie…? (etc.)

3. Dame, what makes your ducks to die…? (etc.)

4. Their wings are cut; they cannot fly…. (etc.)

[These are the same lyrics that Snuffy reported on 23-Dec-]
