Tim Hart and Maddy Prior Babes in the Wood Lyrics

Oh, don't you remember, a long time ago,
Those two little babies, their names I don't know
They strayed far away one bright summer's day
These two little babies got lost on their way.

Pretty babes in the wood
Pretty babes in the wood
Oh, don't you remember
Those babes in the wood

Now the day being long and the night coming on
These two little babies sat under a stone
They sobbed and they sighed, they sat there and cried
These two little babies they laid down and died

Pretty babes in the wood
Pretty babes in the wood
Oh, don't you remember
Those babes in the wood

Now the robins so red, so swiftly they sped
They put out their wide wings and over them spread
And all the day long on the branches they throng
They sweetly did carol and this was their song

Pretty babes in the wood
Pretty babes in the wood
Oh, don't you remember
Those babes in the wood
