This is the lyrics for Bill Doulgas's Irish Lullaby that's on the Celtic Twilight Vol. 3: Lullabies CD

Lullaby, Lullaby,
Sweet little baby,
Don't you cry.
I'd rock my own sweet child to rest,
in a cradle of gold on a bough of a willow,
to the shoheen ho of the wind of the west,
and the lulla lo of the soft sea billow.
sleep, baby dear,
sleep without fear,
mother is here beside your pillow.
lullaby, lullaby,
sweet little baby,
don't you cry.
i'd put my own sweet child to sleep,
in a silver boat on the beautiful river,
where a shoheen whisper the white cascades,
and a lulla lo the green flags shiver,
sleep, baby dear,
sleep without fear,
mother is here with you forever.
lullaby, lullaby,
sweet little baby,
don't you cry.
i'd rock my own sweet child to rest,
in a cradle of gold on a bough of a willow,
to the shoheen ho of the wind of the west ,
and the lulla lo of the soft sea billow,
sleep baby dear,
sleep without fear,
mother is here forever.
lullaby, lullaby,
sweet little baby,
don't you cry.
lullaby, lullaby,
sweet little baby,
don't you cry.

If you listen you can hear this easily. Philippe HELARD was nearly correct. I don't know how they found the lyrics on the page they posted but I didn't find anything but a list of songs. After having been in choir many many years I was able to listen and pick up the minutes words with the "the"s in there. If you've been in this for a while and have sung things like this, you know what to listen for thank god. ^^ Hope this helps. Mind you, this is the Vol. 3: Lullabies version from Celtic Twilight
