By’m Bye

Lyrics

1. By’m bye, By’m bye.
Stars shining, number, number one, number two, number three,
Good Lawd, by’m bye, by’m bye, Good Lawd, by’m bye.

2. By’m bye, By’m bye.
Stars shining, number, number four, number five, number six,
Good Lawd, by’m bye, by’m bye, Good Lawd, by’m bye.
Oh, my! By’m Bye, By’m Bye
Oh, my! By’m Bye.

3. …number seven, number eight, number nine…


Recorder notes: D, E, F#, G, A, D’
