Sleep my sweet baby, the still night surrounds us,
The small downy bluebird has gone to his nest;
The dew drops of morning, have long left the roses,
So sleep on my little one, safe at my breast.
Hush, my little darling one,
Hush, now don't you cry;
Hush, my little baby one,
Close your eyes darling, the sand-man is coming,
To take you to dreamland all lit by starlight;
You'll slide down a rainbow all sparkling with silver;
And then ride a moonbeam to castles of white.
Fairies will greet you with peppermint candy,
And give you a swift ride on butterfly wings;
They'll then lay you down on a bed of rose petals,
And shower you with kisses and stardust of kings.
