Lully, lulla, thou little tiny child
Bye, bye, lully, lullay, thou little tiny child
Bye, bye, lully, lullay

Oh, sisters too, how may we do
For to preserve this day?
This pore yongling for whom we do sing
"Bye, bye, lully, lullay"?

Lully, lulla, thou little tiny child
Bye, bye, lully, lullay, thou little tiny child
Bye, bye, lully, lullay

Herod, the king in his raging
Charged he hath this day
His men of might, in his own sight
All young children to slay

Lully, lulla, thou little tiny child
Bye, bye, lully, lullay, thou little tiny child
Bye, bye, lully, lullay

That one is me, poor child for thee
And ever morn and may
For thy parting, nether say nor sing
Bye, bye, lully, lullay

Lully, lulla, thou little tiny child
Bye, bye, lully, lullay, thou little tiny child
Bye, bye, lully, lullay
