The Babies in the Wood

The Babies in the Wood, my dear do you know
How a long time ago
Two poor little children
Whose names I don’t know,
Were stolen away
On a fine summer’s day,
And left in a wood,
As I’ve heard people say?
And when it was night,
So sad was their plight,
Then sun it went down
and the moon gave no light.
They sobbed and they sighed,
And they bitterly cried,
And the poor little things
They lay down and died
And when they were dead,
The robins so red
Brought strawberry leaves,
And over them spread;
And all the day long
They sang them this song
“Poor babes in the wood!
“Poor babes in the wood!
And don’t you remember
The babes in the wood.
