Dance to your daddy
My little laddy
Dance to your daddy
My little lamb

You shall have a fish
And you shall have a fin
You shall have a heron
When the boat comes in

You shall have a lobster
Boiled in a pan
Dance to your daddy
My little lamb

Dance to your daddy
My little laddy
Dance to your daddy
My little lamb

When thou art a man
And come to take a wife
You shall have a girl
And love her all your life

She shall be your girl
You shall be her man
Dance to your daddy
My little lamb

Dance to your daddy
My little laddy
Dance to your daddy
My little lamb

You shall have a fish
And you shall have a fin
You shall have a heron
When the boat comes in

You shall have a lobster
Boiled in a pan
Dance to your daddy
My little lamb

    General CommentI think it's off the same idea of "rock-a-bye baby", getting a small child to do something in return for a promise.
