They are fluttering and fluttering, like birds upon the tree--
Baby bye! Baby bye!
Then shut them tight, my precious, one for you and one for me--
Bye oh! Baby bye!

Away down in the sheepfold all the lambkins are at rest--
The little chickabiddies in their feathers soft are pressed--
And good old Mammy Nature holds them all upon her breast!--
Bye oh! Baby bye!
Um! Um! Um! Um!
Bye oh! Baby bye!

We say we're men and women at the early dawn of day--
Baby bye! Baby bye!
But the sunset finds us children, with tears to wipe away--
Bye oh! Baby bye!
No shame to us that stumbled, if we tried to do our part--
No blame to us for falling, if we made an honest start!--
Then take it all to mammy!--lay it all upon her heart--
Bye oh! Baby bye!
Um! Um! Um! Um!
Bye oh! Baby bye!
