The Man in the Moon looked out of the moon,
Looked out of the moon and said,
“âTis 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!”
“Tarry awhile,” says Slow;
“Put on the pan,”
Says Greedy Nan,
“We'll sup before we go.”
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.
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.
