All Aboard for Blanket Bay

by Cherry Burroughs
(Isle of Wight, UK)

'All aboard for Blanket Bay,
Won't come back till the Break of day'
Then more about a trundle bed, Bless Mummy, Bless Daddy and sail away etc.

I am 69, and have lovely memories of my Welsh mother, grandmother and aunt singing this to me. Does anyone know where I can find a recording or lyrics?

Memory is funny... NEW

Today would've been my mother's 87th birthday. She's been gone for 20 years - but I had this song in my head this morning. She sang it tome when I was little- but I haven't thought of it for years!

Sail Away to Blanket Bay NEW
by: Anonymous

Sail away to blanket bay
Mr. Sandman is calling
Sail away, sail away
And return at break of day
With the dawn's early light
You'll be back in my arms.

I'm 72 yrs. sung to me by my grandmother, who
came to Massachusetts from New Brunswick to
raise her children.

My Grandmother sang it like this:

Now it's all aboard
For Blanket Bay
Won't come back 'til break of day
Bless Mommy bless daddy
And sail away
All aboard for
Blanket Bay
