“Did you ever see a lassie?” is a nursery rhyme which, although first collected in the United States, seems to have Scottish origins, as the words “lassie” and “laddie” mean “girl” and “boy” in Scottish.
It is only in the mid-twentieth century that it began to be sung in Great Britain. The tune of the “Did you ever see a lassie?” is the same as the one of “The More We Get Together” and the German “Oh du lieber Augustin”. Today it’s often used as a love song for kids.

Did You Ever See A Lassie? Glockenspiel / Xylophone Sheet Music and Note Chart
We present here Did You Ever See A Lassie? in C major key as it is the easiest way to play it at the lower row of glockenspiel or xylophone. Time signature is 4/4 and the song begins with a pickup measure. It uses the first 6 notes of major scale and the dominant (G) at the low position.
Try to sing while you learn to play the music phrases one by one. Since you’ve practiced enough and you feel sure about yourself playing the song, you can invite a friend and play it together as a round. Enter the second voice at the 3rd or 5th meter.
Watch the video a couple of times and study each part at your own pace until you get the hang of it. Remember to use both mallets as much as you can. For this purpose avoid using only the hand that is more convenient for you (e.g. the right one if you’re right-handed) as this an important basic technique.
