Lullabies For Babies Nursery Rhymes for Babies

Hush, Little Baby

Hush little baby, don’t say a word.

Mama’s gonna show you a mockingbird.

If that mocking bird won’t sing.

Mama’s gonna show you a diamond ring.

If that diamond rings won’t shine,

Mama’s gonna show you a looking glass.

If that looking glass gets broke,

Mama’s gonna show you a billy goat.

If that billy goat won’t pull,

Mama’s gonna find you a cart and bull.

If that car and bull turn over,

Mama’s gonna bring you a dog named Rover.

If that dog won’t bark,

Mama’s gonna find you a horse and cart.

If that horse and cart fall down,

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


Hush-a-Bye Baby

Hush a bye baby, on the tree top,

When the wind blows the cradle will rock;

When the bow breaks, the cradle will fall,

And down will come baby, cradle and all.



Hush-a-bye, don’t you cry.

Go to sleep you little baby.

When you wake, you shall have

All the pretty horses.

Dapples and greys, tans and bays.

All the pretty horses.


Sleep, Baby, Sleep (1)

Sleep, baby, sleep.

Your father tends the sheep.

Your mother shakes the dreamland tree.

Down falls a dream for thee.

Sleep, baby, sleep.


Sleep, Baby, Sleep (2)

Sleep, baby sleep,

Thy papa guards the sheep,

Thy mama shakes the dreamland tree

And from it falls sweet dreams for thee.

Sleep, baby, sleep,

sleep, baby, sleep,

Our cottage vale is deep;

The little lamb is on the green,

With woolly fleece so soft and clean.

Sleep, baby sleep,

Sleep baby sleep,

Down where the woodbines creep;

Be always like the lamb so mild,

A kind and sweet and gentle child.


Yorkshire Lullabye

Rock-a-boo baby, baby bonny.

Two in a cradle, three is too many.

Four is a company, five is a charge

Six is a family, seven’s too large.


Hush Now, My Little One

Hush now, my little one, Hush now, my sunshine.

Hush now, piece of my heart.

Go to sleep, my little one. Go to sleep, my love.

Go to sleep, piece of my heart.

Sleep, my little one, while I sing to you.

Sleep, my little one, who is already asleep.
