The Nurse's Song

Dance a baby diddy, what can Mammy do wid 'e?
Sit on a lap, give it some pap, and dance a baby diddy.
Smile, my baby bonnie; What will time bring on 'e?

Sorrow and care, frowns and gray hair; So smile, my baby bonnie.
Laugh, my baby, beauty; What will time do to ye?
Furrow your cheek, wrinkle your neck, so laugh, my baby, beauty.
Dance, my baby, deary; Mother will never be weary.
Frolic and play now while you may; So dance, my baby, deary.
