ALISON MOYET lyrics - The Coventry Carol

ALISON MOYET
"The Coventry Carol"

Lully lulla thou little tiny child
Bye, bye, lully lulay
O sisters too how may we do?
For to preserve this day
This poor youngling for whom we do sing
Bye, bye, lully lulay

Herod the king in his raging
Charged he hath this day
His men of might in his own sight
All young children to slay

That woe is me poor child for thee
And ever morn and day
For thy parting neither say nor sing
Bye, bye, lully lulay

Lully lulla thou little tiny child
Bye, bye, lully lulay
Oh, oh, oh
