Rock-A-Bye Baby
Rock-a-bye baby, on the tree top
When the wind blows, the cradle will rock
When the bough breaks, the cradle will fall
Down will come baby, cradle and all.

Wee Willie Winkie
Wee Willie Winkie runs through the town
Upstairs and downstairs in his night gown
Knocking at the windows
Crying at the lock.
“Are the children in their beds?
It’s past eight-o-clock.”

Hush, Little Baby
Hush, little baby, don’t say a word,
Papa’s going to buy you a mockingbird
If that mockingbird won’t sing
Papa’s going to buy you a diamond ring
If that diamond ring turns to brass
Papa’s going to buy you a looking glass.
If that looking glass gets broke,
Papa’s going to buy you a billy goat.
If that billy goat won’t pull
Papa’s going to buy you a cart and bull.
If that cart and bull turn over,
Papa’s going to buy you a dog called Rover.
If that dog named Rover won’t bark,
Papa’s going to buy you a horse and cart.
If that horse and cart fall down,
You’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town.

I See the Moon
I see the moon,
And the moon sees me.
God bless the moon,
And God bless me.

Go to Bed Late
Go to bed late,
Stay very small.
Go to bed early,
Grow very tall.

Diddle, Diddle Dumpling
Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John,
Went to bed with his trousers on;
One shoe off, and one shoe on,
Diddle, diddle, dumpling, my son John!

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.

Is the Moon Tired?
From Christina Rosetti

Is the moon tired? She looks so pale
Within her misty veil;
She scales the sky from east to west,
And takes no rest.
Before the coming of the night
The moon shows papery white;
Before the dawning of the day
She fades away.
