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?

Full lyrics to Blanket bay lullaby NEW
by: Jennifer Sorensen

No idea why I have recalled this lullaby so giercely theough the years but as a professional nanny I have sung it to my charges for the past couple decades. Now as a new mom I sing it to my son and it reminds me so mucj of my own mom who passed away almost 2 years ago. My voice cracks at the same places hers did... the nostalgia is overwhelming. I hope this brings your heart joy.

"All aboard for Blanket Bay
Won't be back 'til break of day.
Wrap him/her up in his/her little blue/pink sheet,
Til all you can see are his/her little pink feet.
Tuck him/her away in his/her trundle bed,
Ship ahoy little sleepy head.
Bless mommy, bless daddy and sail away,
All aboard for Blanket Bay."

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.
