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
