Entitled: The Poor Babes in the Wood.

The text reads:

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 the wood, as I’ve heard people say?

And when it was night,
So sad was their plight,
The 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 sung them this song:

“Poor babes in the wood!  Poor babes in the wood!
And don’t you remember the babes in the wood?”
