This I must say, dilly dilly, and it is true, 
You must love me, dilly dilly, 'cause I love you.

Who told you so, dilly dilly, who told you so?
'T was my own heart, dilly dilly ,that told me so.
Call up your men, dilly dilly, set them to work, 
Set them to reap, dilly dilly, set them to mow, 
Some to cut hay, dilly dilly, some to cut corn, 
While you and I, dilly dilly, keep ourselves warm.

Close we will live, dilly dilly, and when we die, 
Both in one grave, dilly dilly, close we will lie, 
If I die first, dilly dilly, and that may be, 
You must live on, dilly dilly, thinking of me.

Lavender's green, dilly dilly, Lavender's blue. 
When I am king, dilly dilly, you shall be queen.

Who told you so, dilly dilly, who told you so?
'T was my own heart, dilly dilly ,that told me so.

Waiting for the Lark
Jackie Oates

Sleep on child, it is not quite day
For the moon has still to set
Oh the lark she will cry
And bring down the morning to where you lie
But the lark has not risen yet
Oh, the lark has not risen yet

Sleep on child while the birds rest on
And the cow she sleeps in her stall
Oh the meadow stands grey
In this dew-down moment before the day
And waits for the lark to call
And waits for the lark to call

Sleep on child while the fields are still;
They wait for your father's hand
But he will not go
And the sun will not shine and the cock will not crow
Til the lark cries over the land
Til the lark cries over the land

Sleep on child and heed no sound
For your father may rise in the dark
With his boots in his hand
Go drowsily down by the doorway to stand
Waiting for the lark
Waiting for the lark

Thy Cradle Is Green
Jackie Oates

Hush-a-bye baby thy cradle is green;
Father's a nobleman, mother's a queen;
And Betty's a lady who wears a gold ring,
And Johnny's a drummer and drums for the King.

Hush-a-bye baby way up on high;
Never mind baby, Mummy is nigh,
Swinging the baby all around,
Hush-a-bye baby, up hill and down.

Rock-a-bye baby thy cradle is green;
Finest in emerald I've ever seen,
The wind holds a secret, the rhythm to keep,
To carry my baby so gently to sleep.
To carry my baby so gently to sleep.
