Song Meaning
Verse 1
Lay still my fond shepherd and don't you rise yet
It's a fine dewy morning and besides, my love, it is wet
Verse 2
Oh let it be wet my love and ever so cold
I will rise my fond Floro and away to my fold
Verse 3
Oh no, my bright Floro, it is no such thing
It's a bright sun a-shining and the lark is on the wing
Verse 4
Oh the lark in the morning she rises from her nest
And she mounts in the air with the dew on her breast
And like a pretty ploughboy she'll whistle and sing
And at night she will return to her own nest again
Verse 5
When the ploughboy has done all he's got for to do
He trips down to the meadows where the grass is all cut down
Verse 6
Oh the lark in the morning she rises from her nest
And she climbs to the dawn with the dew on her breast
And like a pretty ploughboy she'll whistle and sing
And at night she will return to her own nest again
