Theater, Music-Hall, Nostalgic, Irish & Historic Old Songs, Volume 19
HIE AWAY, OLE SATAN!
Copyright, 1885, by White, Smith A Co.
Run away! hie away! baby, go to bed.
Go to sleep-slumber deep, pretty curly head;
Day is done, night has come, stars are out to peep,
Baby girl, pretty pearl, darling, go to sleep.
Hie away, hie away, ole Satan,
Hie away, and leave my child alone.
It is late, do not wait, baby, go to bed,
Mother's here, watching near-see! the day has fled,
Night has come, day is done, dumber sweet and deep.
Baby girl, pretty pearl, darling, go to sleep.-Chorus.
Satan, stop! don't you pop in my chamber door;
Baby's sleep, dreaming deep of the happy shore;
Not an ill, sleeping still, mars her slumber deep.
Hie away! Satan, hie! let my baby sleep.-Chorus.
