Brown Bird – Coventry Carol

Coventry Carol

Coventry Carol lyrics

Verse 1

Lullay, lullay, little tiny child
Bye-bye, lully, lullay
Lullay, lulllay, little baby child
Bye-bye, lully, lullay

Verse 2

O sisters too, how may we do
For to preserve this day?
This poor youngling for whom we sing
"Bye-bye, lully, lullay?"

Verse 3

Herod the king, in his raging
Chargèd he hath this day
His men of might in his own sight
All children young to slay

Verse 4

Then woe is me, poor child, for thee
And ever mourn and day
For thy parting not say nor sing
"Bye-bye, lullay, lullay"
