Lullaby lyrics you need to know!

I love these lullabies because they have sleep-inducing melodies and sleep-promoting lyrics. While most of us know the melodies, it's the lyrics that trip us up.

So Moms, Dads, Grannies, Aunties, Uncles, Babysitters and wannabe-helpful-friends.... Learn These Lyrics! Or print them out and stick them on the nursery wall so you can 'cheat'.

1. Twinkle, twinkle Little Star

Twinkle, twinkle little star

How I wonder what you are?

Up above the world so high

Like a diamond in the sky

Twinkle, twinkle little star

How I wonder what you are.

 

2. Hush Little Baby

Hush little baby, don't you cry

Mama's going to sing you a lullaby

It's light outside, but close your eyes

Early to bed and early to rise.

Hush little baby, time for bed

Cradle rocked and stories read

And if you don't sleep all night through

You're still the sweetest baby and I love you.

 

3. Little People

The evening is a coming, the sun sets to its rest

The pigeons are all flying home to their nests

Coo says the pigeon as he flies over head

It’s time all little people were going to bed.

The flowers are a dozing, the daisies are asleep

The primroses are snuggled in a slumber so deep

Closed up for the night are the roses so red

It’s time all little people were going to bed.

 

4. Golden Slumbers

Golden Slumbers kiss your eyes

Smiles awake you when you rise

Sleep little girl/boy, do not cry,

And I will sing a lullaby, rock you rock you, lullaby

 

I recommend singing these songs to your baby from as early as the second trimester... when you are going to bed. Your baby will associate these songs with rest and it may make your bedtime routine a lot easier once she arrives.
