Lyrics

1. Two maids went a-milking one day
Two maids went a-milking one day
And the wind it did blow high
And the wind it did blow low
And it toss-ed their pails to and fro, la, la, la
And it toss-ed their pails to and fro.

2. They met with a man they did know
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, la, la, la
For to catch us a small bird or two.”

3. “Yes, I have an excellent good skill
Yes, I have an excellent good skill
If you’ll come along with me
Under yonder flowering tree
I might catch you a small bird or two, la, la, la
I might catch you a small bird or two.”

4. So they went and they sat ‘neath a tree
So they went and they sat ‘neath a tree
And the birds flew round about
Pretty birds flew in and out
And he caught them by one and by two, la, la, la
And he caught them by one and by two.
