Báidín Fheilimí

For some reason I’ve been struck with a maudlin yearning to hear schoolchildren singing Báidín Fheilimí as I remember from my childhood. It’s a great little tune and still taught in kindergarten all over Ireland. This is the only version I could find but it’s better than nothing.Báidín Fheilimí 

It’s all about Fheilimí’s little boat sinking with him and his fish. Too bad for poor Fheilimí but at least we got a nice little song out of it.
