Ha dye da dye da dye da dye – etc.


As long as the sparrow flies

The barley grows as does the rye

And all the while a lilting cry

Da dye da idle idle aye


Oh, the sparrow is a fiddling

A tiny bow upon her wing

Oh, the sparrow is a fiddling

A tiny bow upon her wing


La la la la

As I roved out one May morning

La la la la

Oh, I heard my love so sweetly sing

La la la la

With shoes so black and stockings white

La la la la

With hair as dark as night

La la la la

She had a dark and roving eye

Oh, la la la la

Oh, a shiny thing she longed to spy

Oh, la la la la

Her wings so quick upon the sky

La la la la

With hair as dark as night

She left not a feather for me to sigh


Fal la la, la la la

Tra la la, la la la

Diddley dye da dye da dye
