The song of the baby seed. Little brown brother oh little brown brother, are you awake in the dark.? Here we lie cozily close to eachother, hark to the song of the lark. Waken the lark says waken and dress you, put on your green coats so gay.

Blue skys look down on you sunshine caress you , waken tis morning tis May.
Little brown brother oh little brown brother what kind of flower will you be?
I’ll be a poppy all red like my mother do be a poppy like me.
What you’re a sun flower oh how I will miss you when you’ve grown golden and high.But i’l send all the bees up to kiss you,
Little brown brother goodbye.
