Lyrics

Tracy Alison Walsh


Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo

High on a hill was a lonely goatherd
Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo
Loud was the voice of the lonely goatherd
Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo

Folks in a town that was quite remote heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo
Lusty and clear from the goatherd’s throat heard

O ho lay dee odl lee o, o ho lay dee odl ay
O ho lay dee odl lee o, lay dee odl lee o lay

A prince on the bridge of a castle moat heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo
Men on a road with a load to tote heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo

Men in the midst of a table d’hote heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo
Men drinking beer with the foam afloat heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo

One little girl in a pale pink coat heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo
She yodeled back to the lonely goatherd
Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo

Soon her Mama with a gleaming gloat heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hee hoo
What a duet for a girl and goatherd
Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo

Ummm
(Ummm)
Odl lay ee
(Odl lay ee)
Odl lay hee hee
(Odl lay hee hee)
Odl lay ee yodeling

One little girl in a pale pink coat heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hoo hoo
She yodeled back to the lonely goatherd
Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo

Soon her Mama with a gleaming gloat heard
Lay ee odl lay ee odl lay hmm hmm
What a duet for a girl and goatherd
Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo

Happy are they lay dee olay dee lee o
Soon the duet will become a trio
Lay ee odl lay ee odl-oo

Odl lay ee, old lay ee
(Odl lay ee)
Odl lay hee hee
(Odl lay hee hee)

Odl lay hee
(Odl lay hee)
Odl lay odl lee
(Odl lay odl lee)

Odl lay odl lee
(Odl lay odi lay)
Odl lay odl lee
(Odl lay odl lay)
Odl lay odl lay odl lay
