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 DT #542 Laws Q34 recorded by the Copper Family on Folk Legacy SOF
