Go to sleep my baby

by Maggie
(New Zealand)

Go to sleep my baby, close your pretty eyes.
Angels high above you, pearling at you deary from the skies.
Great big moon is shining, stars begin to peep.
Time for little pikanini to go to sleep
Time for little eyes to go to sleep

My Nana sang it to me, and it's just made me cry writing it down.
Think I have the words right.
That's what I sang to my girls anyway.

I remember this! NEW
by: Cheryl

My Mom used to sing this to me at bedtime, I would have been about 3 when I recall it, so in 1965!
It's actually the chorus from a song called the Wyoming Lullaby, you can still find a recording on Youtube.

Lullaby - Go to Sleep my Baby. NEW
by: Anonymous

Our version was similar....

Go to sleep my baby, close your dreamy eyes, Angels are above you, watching from the glory of the skies. Great big moon is shining, stars begin to peek, it's time for little Piccaninnys to go to sleep, time for Piccaninnys to go to sleep.

I just love this lullaby, but so many people have never heard of it!

My Nan used to sing to us this lullaby every time we stayed over. slight variation of the others, it went: Go to sleep my baby,
Close your pretty eyes
Angels up above you, peering at you dearly from the sky
Great big moon is shining, shining down on you,
Time for little heads like yours dear to go to sleep.

Go to Sleep My Little Baby NEW
by: Anonymous

My mother sang a version like this:

Go to sleep my little baby, close your pretty eyes
Angels up in heaven are peeping at my baby from the skies
A great big moon is shining, shining oh so bright
And it's time for sleepy heads like you dear to say good night.

I think it was "peaking at you dearly from the skies" my Mother used to sing it to me.

Yes I think you have it. My grandpa was from England and he used to sing to me too. I was looking for this song online and so glad to find it with all the words. Thank you!
