Good CD of old playground songs. - ★★★★☆

A dangerously infectious collection of fun songs for children and adults. Helen Raw's voice is stunning. Listening to her can easily wash away the stresses of the day. This is definitely a must have for parents with grade school aged children, or just people with a fondness for Scottish folk songs. - ★★★★★

I bought this for my grandson but it's a great hit with adults and children alike. Sadly most of these songs are not known to many young children today. Good to see them being preserved for everyone. - ★★★★★

IT WORKS! It helps calm down my son when he is having a tantrum, and soothes him to sleep at bedtime. And me too, if truth be told - this is a very relaxing CD, and we have enjoyed some fantastic mother and baby chill-out time together. What more could any mother want? - ★★★★★

These instrumental songs are really good if you are looking for something soothing with no voice. My baby reacts really well to all these melodies and putting him to sleep became easier. I would definitely recommend this to anyone! - ★★★★★

Baloo baleerie, baloo baleerie
Baloo baleerie, baloo balee

Gang awa' peerie faeries,
Gang awa' peerie faeries,
Gang awa' peerie faeries,
Frae oor ben noo.

Baloo baleerie, baloo baleerie
Baloo baleerie, baloo balee

Doon come the bonny angels,
Doon come the bonny angels,
Doon come the bonny angels,
Tae oor ben noo.

Baloo baleerie, baloo baleerie
Baloo baleerie, baloo balee

Sleep saft my baby,
Sleep saft my baby,
Sleep saft my baby,
In oor ben noo.

Baloo baleerie, baloo baleerie

Origins of "Baloo Baleerie"

This ancient Scottish lullaby, also known as "The Bressay Lullaby", is sung in Scots. The chorus is alliterative nonsense based on the Scots word for lullaby, "baloo".

An English translation is:

Lullaby baleerie, lullaby baleerie
Lullaby baleerie, lullaby balee

Go away, little fairies,
Go away, little fairies,
Go away, little fairies,
From our home now

Lullaby baleerie, lullaby baleerie
Lullaby baleerie, lullaby balee

Down come the pretty angels,
Down come the pretty angels,
Down come the pretty angels,
To our home now

Lullaby baleerie, lullaby baleerie
Lullaby baleerie, lullaby balee

Sleep soft, my baby
Sleep soft, my baby
Sleep soft, my baby
In our home now

Lullaby baleerie, lullaby baleerie
Lullaby baleerie, lullaby balee

There is an anglified version of the rhyme, known as "Go Away, Little Fairies".

The Fairies of Scottish folklore are malevolent creatures, and it is from them that the legend of the Changeling arises, whereby the fairies would steal an untended human baby, and replace it with one of their own children. See also "A Highland Fairy Lullaby".

The song is thought to date back as far as the 11th or 12th century. Like many songs of its time, the lullaby mixes the Christian (protection for the child provided by the angels) with the pagan (the fairies).

The song was originally recorded in Bressay, in Shetland, where the lyrics were:

Baloo balilli, Baloo balilli,
Baloo balilli, baloo ba

Ging awa peerie fairies,
Fae my peerie bairn,
Ging awa peerie fairies,
Fae wir bairn noo.

Baloo balilli, Baloo balilli,
Baloo balilli, baloo ba

Dan come bonny angels,
Tae wir peerie bairn,
Dan come bonny angels,
Tae wir bairn noo.

Baloo balilli, Baloo balilli,
Baloo balilli, baloo ba

Dey'll sheen ower da cradle,
O wir peerie bairn,
Dey'll sheen ower da cradle,
O wir bairn noo.

Baloo balilli, Baloo balilli,
Baloo balilli, baloo ba
