Bedtime

The Man in the Moon looked out of the moon,

Looked out of the moon and said,

“‘Tis time for all children on the earth

To think about getting to bed!”

Bye, Baby Bunting

Bye, baby bunting,

Father's gone a-hunting,

Mother's gone a-milking,

Sister's gone a-silking,

And Brother's gone to buy a skin

To wrap the baby bunting in.

Come, Let's To Bed

“To bed! To bed!”

Says Sleepy-head;

“Tarry awhile,” says Slow;

“Put on the pan,”

Says Greedy Nan,

“We'll sup before we go.”

Hush-A-Bye

Hush-a-bye, baby, lie still with thy daddy.

Thy mammy has gone to the mill,

To get some meal to bake a cake,

So pray, my dear baby, lie still.

Hush-a-bye, baby,

Daddy is near;

Mamma is a lady,

And that's very clear.

Hush Baby Dolly

Hush, baby, my dolly, I pray you don't cry,

And I'll give you some bread, and some milk by-and-by;

Or perhaps you like custard, or maybe a tart,

Then to either you're welcome, with all of my heart.
