Mother's Lament  Cream

 transcribed by Aria76 
 Are we rolling? A one, a two, a three, a four... 
 [D] [G] 
 A mother was washing her baby one night; 
 [A] [D] 
 The youngest of ten and a delicate mite. 
 [D] [G] 
 The mother was poor and the baby was thin; 
 [A] [D] 
 'Twas naught but a skeleton covered with skin. 
 [D] [G] 
 The mother turned 'round for a soap off the rack. 
 [A] [D] 
 She was only a moment but when she turned back 
 [D] [G] 
 Her baby had gone, and in anguish she cried, 
 [A] [D] 
 "Oh, where has my baby gone?" The angels replied: 
 [D] [G] 
 Oh, your baby has gone down the plug hole. 
 [A] [D] 
 Oh, your baby has gone down the plug. 
 [G] [D] 
 The poor little thing was so skinny and thin, 
 [A] [A7] [D] [A] [A7] [D] 
 He should have been washed in a jug, in a jug. 
 [D] [G] 
 Your baby is perfectly happy; 
 [A] [D] 
 He won't need a bath anymore. 
 [G] [D] 
 He's a-muckin' about with the angels above, 
 [G] [A] [D] 
 Not lost but gone before. 
 Do you want to do it again?
