To the Isle of Wight on a Chinese kite And back again by morning

Last night as I lay sleeping,

The flowers they love the dew
The little birds love the apple tree
And I love you
The sunshine it kisses the mountaintops
The stars in the sky kiss the sea
And I am the happiest Mum on earth
When you kiss me

51. The flowers are sleeping
Beneath the moon’s soft light
With heads close together,
They dream through the night
Leafy trees rock to and fro
And whisper low

Chorus
Sleep, sleep, lullaby.
Oh sleep my darling child
Sleep, sleep, lullaby.
Oh sleep my darling child

Now birds that sang sweetly
With the morning sun
In little nests are sleeping
Now twilight has begun
A cricket chirps its sleepy song,
Its dreamy song

Chorus

The sandman comes on tiptoe, Through the window peeps
To see if little children
Are in their beds asleep
When a little child he finds,
Casts sand in his eyes

Chorus x2

52. Train whistle blowin’,
Makes a sleepy noise.
Underneath the blankets
Go all the girls and boys.

Rockin’, rollin’, ridin’
Out along the bay
All bound for Morningtown
Many miles away.

Driver at the engine,
Fireman rings the bell.
Sandman swings the lantern
To say that all is well.

Rockin’, rollin’, ridin’
Out along the bay
All bound for Morningtown
Many miles away

Maybe it is raining,
Where our train will ride.
All the little travellers
Are warm and snug inside.

Rockin’, rollin’, ridin’
Out along the bay
All bound for Morningtown
Many miles away
Somewhere there is sunshine,
Somewhere there is day.
Somewhere there is Morningtown
Many miles away.

53. Lullaby, and goodnight,
In the sky, stars are bright.
Round your head, flowers gay
Scent your slumbers ‘til day.
May you wake when the day
Chases darkness away,
May you wake when the day
Chases darkness away.

Lullaby and goodnight,
Let angels of light,
Spread wings round your bed
And guard you from dread.
Slumber gently and deep
In the dreamland of sleep,
Slumber gently and deep
In the dreamland of sleep.

My Bonnie lies over the ocean,
Oh bring back my Bonnie to me.

The winds have blown over the sea,
The winds have blown over the ocean,
And brought back my bonnie to me.

When the wind blows,
The cradle will rock.

The cradle will fall.

Cradle and all.

Sardines are swimming
Apusski Dusski, Apusski Du
A boat sails over, down comes a net
Apusski Dusski, Apusski Du

One wise old sardine
Flicks out a warning
Apusski Dusski, Apusski Du
Swift through the water they dart away
Apusski Dusski, Apusski Du

With tails a flashing
Sardines are swimming
Apusski Dusski, Apusski Du
So ful of joy
That they’re swimming free
Apusski Dusski, Apusski Du
