Welcome to Lullaby Island

Baby's Bed's A Silver Moon

Baby's bed's a silver moon,
Sailing o'er the sky,
Sailing o'er the sea of sleep,
While the stars float by.

Sail baby sail
Far across the sea
Only don't forget to come
Back again to me.

Baby's fishing for a dream
Fishing near and far
Her line a silver moonbeam is
Her bait a silver star

Sail baby sail
Far across the sea
Only don't forget t come
Back again to me.

Traditional American

Other poems in the sailing to sleep vein are Robert Louis Stevenson's The Land of Nod and My Bed is a Boat and The White Seal's Lullaby by Rudyard Kipling
