Tune of the Day: Bonny at Morn

Traditional English air

The title of this air appears in Henry Robson's list of popular Northumbrian song and dance tunes, which he published circa 1800. The poem which is sung to this melody takes a curious twofold form; in part it is a lullaby addressed to a baby, and in part it is reproach to a lazy son who is “ower lang” in his bed and won't get up.
