BETWEEN ME AND YOU (Traditional English/Irish 20th Century) Lulu Belle & Scotty - 1976 Joe & Antoinette Mckenna - 1984 Delia Bell & Bill Grant (with the Kiamichi Mountain Boys) - 1988 Geoff Grainger - 1998 Rock-a-bye Baby, so warm in your nest Your poor Da-da's not well and he must have a rest His head is just splittin', he says it's the flu But it's not the real reason, between me and you He went out on Monday to buy us some shoes And he heard of a horse now that just couldn't lose Well, he bought the new shoes,that I can vow For the Bookmaker's daughter is wearing them now Rock-a-bye Baby, so warm in your nest Your poor Da-da's not well and he must have a rest His head is just splittin', he says it's the flu But it's not the real reason, between me and you He went out on Wednesday, in the late afternoon And he happened to pass by a billiard saloon The balls ran against him, I'm sorry to say And that's one of the reasons he's not feeling gay Rock-a-bye Baby, so warm in your nest Your poor Da-da's not well and he must have a rest His head is just splittin', he says it's the flu But it's not the real reason, between me and you He went out last night and he hadn't a bob But he met Tommy Carty who'd got a new job They went celebratin', just a pint here and there And he sears he was poisoned, and I'm sure we don't care Rock-a-bye Baby, so warm in your nest Your poor Da-da's not well and he must have a rest His head is just splittin', he says it's the flu But it's not the real reason, between me and you (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - January 2004)
