Lullabies

Lullabies

Singing is a wonderful way to comfort and bond with your baby.  Here are a couple of our favorite lullabies.

Hush, Little Baby

Hush, little baby, don’t say a word

Papa’s gonna buy you a mockingbird

And if that mockingbird won’t sing,

Papa’s gonna buy you a diamond ring

And if that diamond ring turns brass,

Papa’s gonna buy you a looking glass

And if that looking glass gets broke,

Papa’s gonna buy you a billy goat

And if that billy goat won’t pull,

Papa’s gonna buy you a cart and bull

And if that cart and bull turn over,

Papa’s gonna buy you a dog named Rover

And if that dog named Rover won’t bark/span>

Papa’s gonna buy you a horse and cart

And if that horse and cart fall down,

You’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town.

 

Morningtown Ride

In this song, children love it when you substitute the underlined names below for names of people in the child’s life.

Train whistle blowing, makes a sleepy noise,

Underneath their blankets go all the girls and boys. 

Heading from the station, out along the bay, 

All bound for Morningtown, many miles away.

Sarah’s at the engine, Tony rings the bell,

John swings the lantern to show that all is well.

Rocking, rolling, riding, out along the bay,

All bound for Morningtown, many miles away.

Maybe it is raining where our train will ride,

But all the little travelers are snug and warm inside.

Somewhere there is sunshine, somewhere there is day,

Somewhere there is Morningtown, many miles away.
