O bee dty host, lhiannoo
(Oh hush-a-bye, baby, in the tree top)

Manx lullaby

O bee dty host, lhiannoo, er dty lunjean
Tra heidys y gheay, eisht leaystee yr clean
My brishys y bangan, neose gys yn ooir
Hig lhiannoo as clean as olley nyn droor

O bee dty host, lhiannoo, er baare ty tonn
Tra yllys yn geay lungeanee y lhong
She harrish yn aarkey, harrish y cheayn
Ayns lhiabbee t'ou cadley, lhiannoo beg veen

Heear er y chronk glass, o lhiannoo my chree
Tra cheeirys yn oie vees oilley ec shee
Agh ass yn aer faeyn hig snieuaneyn kiaull
Eisht! cluinee uss adsy n troailt noon as noal
Oh hush-a-bye, baby, in the tree top
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock
And if the bough breaks, the cradle will fall
And down will come baby, cradle and all

Oh hush-a-bye, baby, on the sea wave
When the wind blows, the cradle will sway
It's over the ocean, over the sea
And then you'll come home, my baby, to me

West on the green hill, oh babe that I love
As evening-time colors the heavens above
The fairies approach with cobwebs of song
Hush, you will hear them, but fear no harm
