Baloo Baleerie

Lyrics

(Scottish folk song)

Refrain
Baloo baleerie, baloo baleerie
Baloo baleerie, baloo balee

Gang awa’ peerie faeries,
Gang awa’ peerie faeries,
Gang awa’ peerie faeries,
Frae oor ben noo. Refrain

Doon come the bonny angels,
Doon come the bonny angels,
Doon come the bonny angels,
Tae oor ben noo. Refrain

Sleep saft my baby,
Sleep saft my baby,
Sleep saft my baby,
In oor ben noo. Refrain

English Translation

Refrain
Lullaby baleerie, lullaby baleerie
Lullaby baleerie, lullaby balee

Go away, little fairies,
Go away, little fairies,
Go away, little fairies,
From our home now. Refrain

Down come the pretty angels,
Down come the pretty angels,
Down come the pretty angels,
To our home now. Refrain

Sleep soft, my baby
Sleep soft, my baby
Sleep soft, my baby
In our home now. Refrain
