Bird in a Cage = 100 3 4 4 3 3 As I went out one May morning To hear the birds sing sweet I leaned my back to a garden wall And watched two lovers meet You courted me was what she said You got me to comply You courted me with a merry mood All night with you to lie And when your heart was mine false love And your head lay on my breast You could make me believe by the fall of your arm That the sun rose in the west I wish your breast was made of glass That all in it might behold I'd write our secret on your heart In letters made of gold My parents they have brought me up Like a small bird in a cage And now I am in child by you Not fifteen years of age There's many a girl can go about And hear the birds so sweet While I poor girl must stop at home And rock the cradle and weep Rock the cradle o'er and o'er And sing sweet lullaby Was ever there a poor young girl So crossed in love as I There's many a star shall fade in the west There's many a leaf shall blow There's many a curse shall light on a man For treating a poor girl so Go down in your father's garden love Sit down and cry your fill And when you think on what you done You'll blame your own good will www.abcnotation.com/tunes
