Little boy piccaninny sleeps in his coolamon

by Jim

This is an Aboriginal lullaby that I think I first came across in a school broadcast book (Australia). I would like to get the title and all the words. The chords and the writer's name would be good too. I just want to sing it.

The words, as I remember them, are something like:

Little boy piccaninny sleeps in his coolamon
While his clever mammy for the lily bulbs is diving
Where the little eels are swimming deep down below
