BAA, BAA, BLACK SHEEP

Baa, baa, black sheep, where'd you leave your lamb?
Way down yonder the valley,
The birds and the butterflies a-picking out it eyes
And the poor little thing cried, "Ma-a-amy."

Mammy told me before she went away
To take good care of the baby.
But then I went away and the baby ran away,
And the poor little thing was cried, "Ma-a-amy."

The birds and the butterflies a-flying all around,
And the poor little thing was crying, "Ma-a-amy."

This has already been posted, and the link to it is in the Spirituals Permathread Index of Posted Spirituals. I suggest it be moved to the other thread.

i really want to hear this song, i grew up with my papa singing it to me and am curious of the tune and also would like confirmation if this song is of scottish origin and how old it is. it always fascinated me thinking of the poor little lamb whilst snuggled safe in my grandpa's arms my children also love this song though my papa did mangle the words and mixed in a line from another song
