LITTLE RED BIRD

(Manx)

Little red bird on the lonely moor,
Lonely moor, lonely moor
Little red bird on the lonely moor
Where did you sleep in the night.

Out on a gorse bush dark and wide,
Dark and wide, dark and wide,
Swift rain was falling on every side,
Hard was my sleep last night.

Did I not sleep on the swaying briar,
Swaying briar, swaying briar,
Tossing around as the wind rose higher,
Little I slept in the night.

Did I not sleep on the cold wave's crest
Cold wave's crest, cold wave's crest
Where many a man has taken his rest
O my sleep was too light.

Wrapped in two leaves I lay at ease,
Lay at ease, lay at ease
As sleeps the young babe on its mother's knees,
Sweet was my sleep last night.
