Paddy cake
by: Anonymous

"Go to sleep little baby go to sleep I pray when you wake up you'll have a paddy paddy cake & ride a pretty little pony"
My mom used to play with my hair & sing this to me so I could fall asleep when I was little.
Years later I mentioned it to her and sang "you'll have a pancake" and my mom laughed and said that's not how that part goes but I can't believe you remember that you were so little. And now I found the lyrics it's paddy paddy cake not just Pancakes. My mom passed away 6yrs ago when I was 17 and I've been searching for this song ever since I'm now 23 & when my daughter was born (she is 2 now) I would sing it to her as well

I have such strong memories of my mom singing this to me when I was little. I sang it to her when she was dying in the hospital this past January... Rest in peace Mommy-

I love this lullaby I sang it to my first born girl child who is going to be 67...

She says she still hums it now and then.

I remember mom would have the radio on for me to go to sleep. This song would come on. I think it was Imogene Coca. I'm 73.

Love this lullaby NEW
by: Anonymous

I sang all the words I knew of this to my sons and grandchildren, but didn't know all of them. I just recently heard all the words sung by Judy Canova. Maybe I can learn them all before the great-grandkids start arriving.

It was written by Judy Canova, if that helps.

I'm looking for the real, complete lyrics.
by: Anonymous

My parents used to sing this to me. I found complete lyrics 12 years ago when my son was born. Now, I'm again searching.

My childhood lullaby
by: Kevin

My grandmother sang this to me as a child...only a slight variation...as I remember it was a Chocolate Pony, not a Shiny one.

Nonetheless I spent nearly every weekend at my grandparents house growing up. The song just happened to pop into my head tonight and I thought I would just do a quick search to see what popped up on Google.

I am so glad I did. I was able to get Judy Canova's closing of her radio show in which she sang it. Judy's Wiki page said she learned the song from her mother so its clearly been around a LONG time.

Interesting enough the old recording from Judy's show even sounded like my grandma, which brought tears to my eyes. Here is the link I hope it does for anyone else who was song this as a child.

The MP3 was available for download and the song is at the very end of the recording.

source of the song

I believe this one was sung at the end of every Judy Canova show back in the days of radio.

It must have been written by someone but I don't know who or when.
