Lyrics

Oh it was a wee bit over the lea me boys
A wee bit over the green
Sure the birds went into the poor man's corn
I fear they'll never be s-s-s-s-seen
I fear they'll never be seen.

Then out came a nice wee lass
To see if her birds was th- was th- was there
Ah to see if her birds were there.

Well then out came nice wee lad and he was a fisherman's son
And he went with this pretty wee lass
To meddle amongst the co- the co- the corn
Ah to meddle amongst the corn.

Well he kissed her once he kissed her twice
He kissed her cheek and chin
Out spoke the bonny wee lass a-saying
I fear it is a s-s-s-s-sin I fear it is a sin.

Then out came out an ould ould woman
And she looked wonder forlorn
Sure if this is they way you’ve used me daughter
I'll mind my birds no mo- no mo- no more
I'll mind my birds no more.

Well then out came the an ould ould man
And he was all tattered and torn
And he away with this pretty ould woman
To meddle amongst the co- the co- the corn
To meddle amongst the corn.

Well he‘s kissed her once he kissed her twice
‘Til he kissed her ten times o'er
And wasn’t that nice for to kiss an ould woman
That never was kissed bef-f-f-f-f-fore
Ah that never was kissed before.
