Babys boat a silver moon sailing in the sky ... babys fishing for a dream fishing near and far...
Somewhere in my life (I don't think it was one of my Mother's) I picked up a few scattered words/verses and it's driving me crazy that I can't find the whole thing. Now that I have a baby coming it has become especialy important. I have tried a number of sites with no match to what I hear in my head.
HELP

Another version that's lasted through the years NEW
by: Anonymous

My mother's version was:

Baby's boat's a silver moon,
Sailing in the sky
Baby's going to take a trip
To the bye and bye
Sail baby sail, out upon the sea
Only don't forget to sail
Back again to me.

I sang this most recently to my adult daughter as she headed out on a long trip to discover the world.

Baby's Boat. NEW
by: debbieAnonymous

This was sung to me( & all my siblings) by our Mother in our children's rocker. She was a petite 100#women who easily fit in it & held us thru feedings,sickness & bad dreams. She sang it to her grandchildren also. I sang it to my son never fully knowing all the words. I have now become a grandmother & now having the correct verses will make it perfect as I sing to my granddaughter.

how my Mother sang it NEW
by: Angela

She would add our names,

Angela's Boats a silver dream,
sailing through the sky,
Sailing out across the sea as the ships go by,
So sail Angela, sail, out across the sea,
Only don't forget to sail, back again to me.

Thank-you!! I've tried and tried to remember the words to this song my mother sang. (She's 92) I've been singing it to my granddaughter and humming the words I didn't know.

The Slumber Boat
by: Anonymous

Baby's boat's a silver moon
sailing in the sky
Sailing o'er the sea of sleep,
as the stars go by
Sail baby, sail
Out upon that sea
Only don't forget to sail
Back again to me.

Baby's fishing for a dream
Fishing near and far
His line a golden moonbeam is
His bait, a silver star,
Sail baby sail
Out upon that sea
Only don't forget to sail
Back again to me.

Lyrics to Baby's Boat Song
by: Elwood

Baby Boat
by Alice Riley 1898

Baby's boat's a silver moon
Sailing o'er the sky
Sailing o'er a sea of sleep
As the stars go by.

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

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

If you find that dream so fair
Happy may it be
This will always be my prayer
May God watch over thee.

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

Recording of song by Mezzo-Soprano, Christine Miller 6-16-1914

by: Joni

Baby's boat the silver moon sailing through the sky
Sailing over the sea of sleep while the clouds float by
Sail baby sail out across the sea
Only dont forget to sail back again to me

Baby's fishing for a dream. Fishing near and far
His line a golden moonbeam. His bait a silver star
Sail baby sail out across thr sea
Only dony forget to sail back again to me. Back again to me

Camp Song

this was a song that the counselors sang to us on the last night of camp as we sailed our boats (a block of wood with a candle stuck in the middle)down the fox river near oswego illinois. a special ceremony and one that has stayed with me. one of those magical times from a beautiful childhood.
