This is an edited version of the original "Fairy Suite" from the GrooveLily album "A Little Midsummer Night's Music."
You spotted snakes with double tongue,
Thorny hedgehogs, take thy flight;
Newts and blind-worms, do no wrong,
Come not near this wood tonight.
Philomel, with melody
Sing in our sweet lullaby;
Lulla, lulla, lullaby, lulla, lulla, lullaby:
Nor spell nor charm,
Come our lovely lady nigh;
So, good night, with lullaby.
Weaving spiders, come not here;
Hence, you long-legg'd spinners, hence!
Beetles black, approach not near;
Worm nor snail, do no offence.
Philomel, with melody, & c.
Hence, away! now all is well:
One aloof stand sentinel.
