1DANCE little baby, dance up high,
2Never mind baby, mother is by ;
3Crow and caper, caper and crow,
4There little baby, there you go ;
5Up to the ceiling, down to the ground,
6Backwards and forwards, round and round ;
7Dance little baby, and mother shall sing,
8With the merry coral, ding, ding, ding.
