GUEST,Me Lyr Req: Go to Sleep My Baby / Wyoming Lullaby (152* d) RE: Lyr Req: Go to Sleep My Baby / Wyoming Lullaby 08 Jul 09


My Grandma and mum used to sing this to me as a child. I always remembered it.

Our version is pretty similar to those stated, although I wont use the "Pickaninnies" version in public and change it to my daughters nick-names.

Go to sleep my baby
Close your pretty eyes
Angels are above you
Peeping at you deary from the skies
Great big moon is shinning
Stars begin to peep
Time for all good *pickaninnies* to go to sleep
Pickaninnies time to go to sleep

My two year old sings along with me too. It certainly has an impact!

Out of interest, Im only 28, but it is still a perfect lullaby, soft and gentle, and easy for little ones to drift off to...or in my case howl along to!!! You have to imagine a 2 year old "go sleep my babyyyyyyyy" comletely off key but enjoying every moment!
