Traditional Folk Music - A SMALL BIRD OR TWO Sheet Music



A SMALL BIRD OR TWO
Lyrics

Two maidens went milking one day (2x)
And the wind it did blow high
And the wind it did blow low
And it tossed their pails to and fro, la, la, la
And it tossed their pails to and fro

They met with a man they did know...
And they said, "have you the will?"
And they said, "Have you the skill
For to catch us a small bird or two..."

"Oh yes, I have an excellent good skill...
If you will come along with me
Under yonder flowering tree
I might catch you a small bird or two..."

So they went and they sat 'neath a tree
And the birds flew round about
Pretty birds flew round about
And he caught them by one and by two

Now my boys, let us drink down the sun
Now my boys let us drink down the moon
Take your lady to the wood
If you really think you should
You might catch her a small bird or two
