Ba Wee Birdie Ba, wee birdie, birdie; Ba, wee birdie, croon; The ewes are awa to the siller parks, The kye's amang the broom; The wee bits o' yowes to the heathery knowes, They'll no be back till noon; If they dinna get something ere they gang out, Their wee pipes will be toom. ________________________________________________________ Chambers PRS (1847), 187; (1870), 24, from the west of Scotland. Cf. "Hush-a-ba birdie, croon". MS
