I'll set you a-swing in a purple bell
Of the lady finger
Where brown bees linger
And loiter long
I'll set you a-swing in a fairy dell
To the silv'ry ring
Of a fairy song

I'll put you afloat in a boat of pearl
On a moonlit sea
Where your path shall be
Of silver and blue
To fairyland children, sweet girl
To it's rode-strewn strand bathed in glistining dew
Bathed in glist'ning dew

I'll make you a nest, a soft, warm nest
In my heart's core
Alanniv ashore
When day is gone
Where cosily curled on mother's breast
My share o' the world
You'll rest till dawn
