Lullaby and The Name NEW
by: VulgarSpud

Thanks for the memory!

My late wife and I both remembered slightly different versions sung by our parents as childhood songs - not necessarily lullabies. My mother's version had "I'll fetch thee a crumb" rather than "pick up a crumb" which suggests either an older origin, or maybe just dialect difference.

Apart from this thread I've only ever heard reference to the song once, when Dennis Norden sang it to a slightly different tune on an episode of BBC Radio 4's "My Music" years ago.

Lullaby NEW
by: Anonymous

I remember a verse:
Come, pretty one, come pretty one, come, come, come.
Come to my garden and whistle, and hum.
Come to my window and pick up a crumb.
Come, pretty one, come pretty one, come, come, come come.

The name NEW
by: essaytoday.net

If I'm not mistaken, the name is "Little Garden". My Dad used to sing it to me. I can be mistaken, sure thing. But I guess it's this one. The last line is "Come pretty one come pretty one into my garden and we shall see the Sun"?
