Cat. #0639 (MFH #708) - As sung by Reba Dearmore, Mountain Home, Arkansas on January 7, 1969

VERSE 1
Way down in th buttercup meadow
I saw a boss sheepy today
Close by th boss sheep in th clover
T'was a dear little lam'y at play

VERSE 2
Does th sheep love her lamb kid, O Mamma
Just as you love me, say Mamma say
Does th sheep love her lamb kid, O Mamma
Just as you love me, say Mamma say

VERSE 3
Last night as I looked out my window
Just before I repeated my prayers
I saw seven little star babies
Walk'in so high up in th air

VERSE 4
Did God make th little star babies,
Walk'in so high up in th air
Yes, God made th little star babies
Walk'in so high up in th air
