Bonny At Morn

 

This hauntingly beautiful Gaelic tune talks about the new baby being good, (bonny) in the morn and fussy, (canny) at night. The new parents are too exhausted to keep up with their chores, busy with the “keepin o”the bairn”. 

 

The Sheep’s in the meadow, the kye’s in the corn

Thou’s ower lang in thy bed, bonny at morn

The Sheep’s in the meadow, the kye’s in the corn

Thou’s ower lang in thy bed, bonny at morn

 

Canny at night, bonny at morn

Thou’s ower lang in thy bed bonny at morn

Canny at night, bonny at morn

Thou’s ower lang in thy bed bonny at morn

 

We’re a’ laid idle wi’ the keepin o’ the bairn

The lad will not work, and ,the lass will not learn

We’re a’ laid idle wi’ the keepin o’ the bairn

The lad will not work, and the lass will not learn

 

Chorus:

 

The bird’s in the nest. The trout’s in the burn

Thou hinders thy mother at many a turn

The bird’s in the nest. The trout’s in the burn

Thou hinders thy mother at many a turn

 

Chorus:
