Adapted from an American Folk song
Tune: recorder notes:

Actions: Ae bairn stauns sweyin like a flame
As the verses are sung ither caunles link airms an swey wi them

Ae little caunle burnin bricht
Lichts up the dark on a Winter's nicht
Caunle-licht shines like the meen
We could be daein wi anither een

Last Verse
(…) little caunles burnin bricht
Shine through the dark on a Winter's nicht
Caunle-licht shines like the meen
This is the eyn as the sang is deen.
