The tracks here are delivered with an enthusiasm that only a professional misanthrope could fail to smile at, and the saccharine blandness of so many other children's nursery rhyme albums is thankfully missing. - ★★★★☆

IT WORKS! It helps calm down my son when he is having a tantrum, and soothes him to sleep at bedtime. And me too, if truth be told - this is a very relaxing CD, and we have enjoyed some fantastic mother and baby chill-out time together. What more could any mother want? - ★★★★★

These instrumental songs are really good if you are looking for something soothing with no voice. My baby reacts really well to all these melodies and putting him to sleep became easier. I would definitely recommend this to anyone! - ★★★★★

Good CD of old playground songs. - ★★★★☆
Amazon.co.uk

A dangerously infectious collection of fun songs for children and adults. Helen Raw's voice is stunning. Listening to her can easily wash away the stresses of the day. This is definitely a must have for parents with grade school aged children, or just people with a fondness for Scottish folk songs. - ★★★★★

I bought this for my grandson but it's a great hit with adults and children alike. Sadly most of these songs are not known to many young children today. Good to see them being preserved for everyone. - ★★★★★

Did you ever see a lassie,
A lassie, a lassie?
Did you ever see a lassie,
Go this way and that?
Go this way and that way,
Go this way and that way.
Did you ever see a lassie,
Go this way and that?

Did you ever see a laddie,
A laddie, a laddie?
Did you ever see a laddie,
Go this way and that?
Go this way and that way,
Go this way and that way.
Did you ever see a laddie,
Go this way and that?

Origins of "Did You Ever See A Lassie"

The use of the words "Lassie" and "Laddie" in this song suggest that it originates in Scotland. However, "Did You Ever See A Lassie" was first collected in the USA at the end of the nineteenth century. It was originally published in New York by The MacMillan Company in December 1909, in Jessie Hubbell Bancroft's "Games for the Playground, Home, School and Gymnasium". It did not appear in the UK until the middle of the twentieth century. Nevertheless, the use of "Lassie" and "Laddie" (Scots for "Girl" and "Boy", respectively) almost certainly infers that the song is the work of Scots immigrants.

It is sung to the melody of the German song, "Oh du lieber Augustin".

Bancroft describes a game that may be played with this song:

This is a game for very little children, and with a little suggestion as to the exercises or movements to be illustrated by the "lassie," may be the source of some very good exercise as well as a pleasing game.

All of the players but one form a circle, clasping hands. They circle around, singing the first two lines of the verse. While they are doing this, the odd player stands in the center and illustrates some movement which he chooses for the others to imitate. During the last two lines of the verse the players stand in place, drop hands, and imitate the movements of the center player, which he continues in unison with them.

Did you ever see a lassie, a lassie, a lassie,
Did you ever see a lassie do this way and that?
Do this way and that way, and this way and that way;
Did you ever see a lassie do this way and that?

When a boy is in the center, the word "lassie" should be changed to "laddie."

The player may imitate any activity, such as mowing grass, raking hay, prancing like a horse, or turning a hand organ; may use dancing steps or movements such as bowing, courtesying, skipping, whirling in dance steps with the hands over the head, etc.; or may take any gymnastic movements, such as hopping, jumping, arm, head, trunk, or leg exercises, etc.
