I heard a bonny cow low, cow low, cow low,
I heard a bonny cow low over the lea.
And it was an elf-call, elf-call, elf-call,
And it was an elf-call calling unto me.
And the little elf-call, elf-call, elf-call,
And the little elf-call said unto me:

Chorus:
Come and nurse an elf child, elf child, elf child,
Come and nurse an elf child down beneath the sea.
Come and nurse an elf child, elf child, elf child,
Come and nurse an elf child down beneath the sea.

“What do you moan for, moan for, moan for,
What do you moan for?” the elf king said to me.
“I'm moaning for my own child, own child, own child,
I'm moaning for my own child far across the sea.”
Then the little elf king, elf king, elf king,
Then the little elf king said unto me:

Chorus

I heard a bonny cow low, cow low, cow low,
I heard a bonny cow low over the lea.
And it was an elf-call, elf-call, elf-call,
And it was an elf-call calling unto me.
And the little elf-call, elf-call, elf-call,
And the little elf-call said unto me:

Chorus (x2)
